Nothing like good ol’ irish whiskey to get you in the mood for drinking. The Irish Mist brand is pretty famous as its first product (Irish Mist Honey Whiskey) is based on a recipe from ireland that was popular in the 1500’s and 1600’s until the damn brits invaded ireland and the recipe was lost. Desmond Williams found the old recipe in a manuscript and started producing irish mist honey. Irish Mist realized that only little bitches drank Honey Whiskey and they wanted to come out with a manly whiskey for those of us with testicles. Thus Irish Mist Triple Distilled Irish blended Whiskey was born.
How to Drink It
Like most irish whiskies, Irish Mist is smooth and easy to drink. Shots go down fine, and drinking it on the rocks or full stempf is best. Generally I don’t like to use irish whiskies often for mixed drinks, as they are too smooth and their flavor can easily get lost; However Irish Mist is one of them with a little bit more flavor and bite (in a good way) and can go decent in some mixed drinks.
Irish Whiskies are lighter of flavor and bite, which makes them easier to drink, but the lack of character can sometimes be unsatisfying. Irish Mist has more flavor and bite than most Irish Whiskies out there. I’d say its more similar to a Jameson or Michael Collins. One of the better tasting Irish Whiskies I’ve had.
Irish Mist is a great choice if you’re in the mood for Irish Whiskey. Its about the price of Jameson, and is in the same ballpark in terms of quality. After knowing the history of Irish Mist, its very difficult not to curse the British. So go find some Irish Mist, pour yourself a glass, and start posting nasty things about the British on social media.
