I had this long condescending response explaining the malting process and its use in the production of the various types of Irish whiskey but decided that I didn't need to be a dick about it.
Instead Ill say this...
I drink Irish whiskey when I want whiskey that doesn't taste like it was strained through a handful of peat moss. Single malts are , in my opinion, the Irish version of scotch and if I wanted scotch there are far better bottles that the best single malt Irish whiskey.
Practically all irish whiskey contains at least a blend of malted and unmalted barley. Single malted simply means its all malted barley
Also Most irish whiskey does not use peat smoke in the malting process
