The best way to find the three dimensions of a spirit like The Busker Irish Whiskey is to create three different styles of tastings: straight up using a Norlan Glass, a spirit forward cocktail like an Irish Manhattan, and a juice-based cocktail like an Irish Sour.

How To Taste Spirits:

The recipes we will use shall include:

Irish Manhattan
1 ½ oz The Busker Irish Whiskey
¾ oz Sweet Vermouth
2 dashes Aromatic Bitters

Irish Sour
2 oz The Busker Irish Whiskey
1 oz. Fresh Squeezed Lemon Juice
½ oz Simple Syrup

The Busker Irish Whiskey that we’re using is known as Triple Cask Triple Smooth, a green label blended Irish whiskey. I recommend tasting them from most potent to least potent, and then go back and start the cycle again, you’ll find new flavors when you taste The Busker straight up after you take a few sips from the Irish Sour.

You’ll find the taste experience for The Busker Irish Whiskey to be fairly light-to-medium body, with hints of sweetness of honey with a middle-to-late finish of fresh white oak. A bit of suede, leather, brown sugar and light tastes of honey. The Irish Sour is more like a lemonade in terms of total tasting experience, with the lighter notes of The Busker playing into the balance.

You may find the Irish Manhattan a more middle-ground experience of potent and sweet, but you’ll want to appreciate the vermouth-forward flavor which could overpower your Irish Whiskey if you balance it incorrectly. You may want to push it to 2 oz of Irish Whiskey if you like a bit more whiskey-forwardness.
