If one makes Irish coffee but uses Scotch whisky rather than Irish Whiskey, what is the resulting drink called?

Cheers,

Did you use a blend or a single malt?

Hopefully a blend. Wouldn't want to ruin the subtle flavors of the single malt by contaminating it with coffee, would we? :cool:

I'd call the drink "A Highland Awakening" or some such. :hmm:

L50, definitely not. I coud think of a few names if a single malt had been used!

Whisky, note the Scots spelling, and coffee is Gaelic Coffee.

Definition of Gaelic coffee - coffee (British & World English) (http://oxforddictionaries.com/definition/english/Gaelic%2Bcoffee)

A waste of whisky

Never seen what all the fuss is over single malts - I'd label most of them 'Old Emperor's Clothes' frankly. The worst of them taste like pond water with added vodka to me. I'll stick to Bells - at least it's predictable.

Your'e dead right; it's predictably awful.

A splash of whisk(e)y in a cuppa, no more than a teaspoon full, or a half tot in a pint mug, is sublime. No idea what it's called but Tullamore is the business. The Jockinese pretender is adequate, but one prefers the Irish variety.

Though I was introduced to the concept of Sambucca in coffee last year, that is quite interesting!

Rusty one of the best bosses I ever had - (the best being a SA hard-rock mining engineer) - was a black Irishman named Monaghan. He once explained the differences between Irish whiskeys thusly: "Piggy, Jamesons and such is Irish gettin' drunk whiskey. Tullamore is Irish sippin' whiskey." ;)

Can't argue with that, Mr Pigboat. A taste of Tullamore in a cup of tea is a rare treat and something to be savoured. Too much becomes an annoyance, but just enough for the peaty flavour to make itself known, along with a hint of honey, is an excuse for a quiet moment alone with hound and a book.:ok:

Tastes differ TS. If you prefer putting goat piss in your mouth, that's fine with me.:}

It is known as "Highland Coffee" - according to Wikipedia
