Just for clarity: this is Irish whisky, not Scotch.

A glass of wine with you, sir, and the ladies I'll enjoy.
Revolutionary times must on occasion make do with considerable abridgements in order to accentuate the political line more strongly.

Why would anyone think it was scotch ? And if they did, why would they care ?

Yeah, it says so right on the can, and it is embossed I believe for the visually impaired...

The norm/best practice is to identify what type of whisky you're talking about (scotch/irish/rye/canadian/bourbon/etc).
However, in the event you don't specify, but you do go out of your way to say "single malt", I think you'll find most people will assume you're talking scotch (especially if the list price is $100, and even if, technically, that doesn't mean it is scotch)

Because, despite the fact that it may be silly, the mast majority of Canadians who see "Single Malt 10 year" immediately think of Scotch.

So it's nice that somebody took the time to clarify for the uninformed - it might be useful to somebody....Unlike your comment which couldn't possibly be construed as useful to anybody.

^^^^^The post above was originally by user "buriboi" and quoted by me^^^^ just clarifying in case he thinks I stole his genius.


Clarify what ? They couldn't have made it any clearer in the packaging what this is. The OP posted a picture of it showing as much. If you needed clarification, maybe you should lay off what you've been drinking instead of being the defender of all that is useless.

OP included a picture that's clear as day showing what this is. Don't see the need for anything else. Maybe you're assuming that people will assume this is scotch, and if you go down that road might as well list everything else this isn't , just to make sure nobody gets the wrong idea.

Clarify that it was Irish Whiskey and not Scotch.

If it helped one ill-informed person who didn't click on the picture (I certainly didn't, but I know it's not Scotch), then it's useful. I suspect, in a forum of thousands, at least one person read that post and said "oh...it's not Scotch!"

If you found it fully non-useful, you should have just moved on, no?

Anyhow, that's enough keystrokes from me. No need to discuss further - I appreciate that he was willing to help anybody who didn't know. Thanks!

Not enough time to read every post in detail or look to see if the picture of the product confirms one's initial bias?
