Taste review of Fireball Whiskey (Blended Whiskey)

We thought this was worth a mention, because it is something unique and definitely worth a shot or two.

Hailing in from Canada, Fireball Cinnamon Whisky (or Fireball Whiskey) is a cinnamon-flavored liqueur style whisky produced by the Sazerac Company in Canada.

This tastes just like the name suggests, cinnamon with a kick to it. Hints of whisky do come through but that will be the last thing on your mind when drinking this.

Review of the best Scottish whisky brands

Scottish whisky, or Scotch, is by far the most popular around the world (note the spelling of whisky and not whiskey – please read here for more on that).  Scottish whisky brands are traditionally blended with malted barley, they are double-distilled and very commonly peated. This in turn results generally in a stronger and darker whisky, as opposed to Irish whiskey for example.

Review of the best Irish whiskey brands

Irish whiskey is considered by most to be the best there is and ever will be. Irish whiskey brands are traditionally blended with both un-malted and malted barley in pot stills, they are triple-distilled and not commonly peated. This in turn results generally in a smoother and lighter whiskey as opposed to Scottish whisky for example.
