Irish Whiskys

Wink Irish Whiskys
I have recently been trying Irish Whiskys for the first time. I have had the Irish Standard Jameson which is a nice mellow, slightly sweet elixir. The 12 yr old is also nice and mellow, a bit smoother perhaps. My favourite would happen to be Two Gingers by Kilbeggan CO Distillery. This is sweeter than the Jameson, and a bit smoother as well. I wish I had tried Irish Whiskys sooner. Anyone else here a fan if the Emerald Isle alcohol?

I'm taking a ride with my best friend...I hope he never lets me down again.

RE: Irish Whiskys
Absolutely!

Knappogue Castle(lavender/honeysuckle)and Jameson 18(praline/creme brulee)are two of my favs.

Haven't seen Knappogue Castle here. Jameson 18 is one sold here I REALLY want to try. The good thing about the Jameson 18 is it doesn't break the bank to own. Smile

The amazing entry in this category is Red breast 12. Stunning stuff. Only bettered by Red Breast Cask Strength. Superb!

I recently also tried the Bushmills Black Bush. Very tasty, decent complexity, and a good price.

RE: Irish Whiskys
Also:
Powers Gold label.
or
Power John's Lane.

The former is inexpensive and very nice. The latter is spendy but sublime!

Just took a tour of a very new, very small local distillery in Nashua, NH called Djinn. They specialize in white whiskey, barrel whiskey, gin, and their signature honey liquor. Tour and tasting, educational and flavorful. Bought a bottle of the white whiskey, Beat 3.

RE: Irish Whiskys
Just picked up a nice one. Yellow Spot...a single pot 12yr bottled at 46%abv ---> http://www.singlepotstill.com/spotwhiskey/yellowspot

If you want something a little different than the usual "honey praline&cream" of most high end Irish whiskeys, the flavor profile and 92 proof bite of the Yellow Spot will certainly satisfy.

RE: Irish Whiskys
I have often wanted to try that but I don't think I have ever seen it out here in Cactus-Land.
