Whisky or Whiskey to our good friends in the States and Ireland is a Spirit made from Grain Mash. It can be made in varying styles and from an assortment of different grains. With Scotch a large factor is Peat. A natural substance found in Bogs across Scotland made up of organic matter which imparts a real smokey 'peaty' flavour. Look out for Islay or 'peated' if you like this style.
