We love Irish Whiskey. It’s great for cocktails and on it’s own. A bourbon or rye drinker that would like to branch out to other whiskies would cross over easily to Irish. For today’s line up we are featuring:
Lambay Small Batch, finished in Cognac cask: Two families on Lambay Island (3 miles from Dublin) the Barings of Irish Whiskey fame and the Camus family, known for their fine Cognac have joined forces to produce an excellent Irish rested in ex Coganc cask briefly for flavors of carmel, almond and notes of citrus and baking spices. The brief time in Cognac cask leaves an impression
Writers Tears: Is an excellent quality blended whiskey made with all malt whiskey, no grain whiskey which is the standard. It received a 92 point rating from the serious chaps at The Whiskey Advocate which they called “a stunning effort”
Tullamore Dew Special Reserve 12 year old: This is a dram with extended cask aging in a combination of ex Bourbon and ex Oloroso casks. Oloroso Sherry definitely leaves its mark on this whiskey with a flavor profile that spans the spectrum. It shows creamy toffee, raisin and sweet nuttiness with some maltiness and baking spices. It’s a very special dram.
