and the yanks have their Bourbon with at least 51% corn.
The Canadians use alot of Rye.
But what is the recipe the makes The Irish different form the rest?
I know that they use Oats and unmalted barley.
I've seen molasses and hops. wheat and corn in grain bills as well.
Is there a definitive Irish recipe?
And how different is it from the old country "poteen" or "poitin"

In days gone by, they also used a small amount of oats and rye in the mash, but this is not done anymore.
Of course, they've also made malt whiskey in Ireland for a long long time at distilleries such as Bushmills and Coleraine (now closed). This was triple distilled.
Cooley makes a double distilled malt whiskey - several of them, in fact.
Called it an Irish Style whiskey...
Like I said, very good, with a wonderful sweet aroma.
I think your friend got away with a double distillation in this case because of the oats. I believe "pure pot still" is very harsh after just a double distillation and requires one more. I'm not 100% sure about this, though.
