Drink Whiskey Like A Pro In Los Angeles

March 06, 2017

This year St. Patrick’s day falls on a friday night, giving us plenty of opportunities to celebrate. However, if you are over the age of 25 and still drinking green beer and leprechaun inspired cocktails, we have a better alternative for you. Why not tip your hat to the culture by exploring Irish Whiskey’s right here at our hotel bar? Visit the Knoll restaurant and either have it mixed or sip it neat. Whatever your preference, it’s a great way to connect with the holiday.

When enjoying your drink, here are a couple of tips to keep in mind. The flavor of Irish Whiskey will be lighter than it’s counterpart Scotch. It will also be less smoky because they tend to have fuller flavors due to the mix of grains, unmalted, and malted barley. Jameson is the most famous and Buschmill’s is considered to be the oldest, however the industry is experiencing a boom and new smaller companies are producing smaller batch whiskeys. When in doubt ask you bartender, they should be able to lead you in the right direction. Pick a poison and sip it slowly. Happy St. Patricks Day to you!
