I’m definitely a whiskey gal, but never really knew what to look for in a whiskey. After all, there are so many different varieties. Scotch, Irish Whiskey, American Whiskey, Bourbon, etc. What’s the difference? I couldn’t differentiate, but always thought it would be nice to know. That’s when, by chance, I received an invitation to go to the Neat Whiskey Society’s event, “The Big 3.”
“The Big 3” was in reference to the three main types of whiskeys, Scotch, Irish Whiskey, and Bourbon. The event was for beginners to learn more about the differences between each one. It was the perfect opportunity for me to hone my whiskey drinking skills and level up on some knowledge.
Here’s what I learned.
