Scotch, bourbon, Irish whiskey… Seems like you’ve spent your whole adult life actively familiarizing yourself with the golden-brown elixir, yet the more you drink and learn about the world of whiskey, the more complex it gets. Even the most hardcore of whiskey fanatics won’t be able to distinguish every single whiskey on the planet. Obviously, the complex world of whiskey is not something you can sit down and learn from a book, as it’s a learning process that requires active participation, followed by good times.
For those curious about the taxonomy of whiskey, The Many Varieties of Whiskey Chart categorizes and distills all the major varieties of whiskey — from scotch to bourbon to single malt to moonshine. Whether you like your whiskey neat, on the rocks, or with a soda back, having this chart on the wall in your favorite room is not only a great way to decorate, but also a balanced dram for whiskey drinkers of all dispositions.
