Favorite Irish Whiskies to try on St. Patrick’s Day

What does one drink on St. Patrick’s Day when celebrating? Let’s be honest, most years I’m out celebrating St. Patrick’s Day people are either drinking beer or Guinness. This year, as the good Christian that I am, for Lent I gave up all things beer including, Guinness. I know that’s a problem! My boyfriend even…

Westland Whiskey Dinner and Q&A

Boston’s Omni Parker House is a hotel rich with history. Established in 1855 by Harvey D. Parker it is the longest operating hotel in the US. There are two main reasons why we always frequent this hotel: 1) The Last Hurrah bar in the hotel has the best whisky list in the city. 2) Frank…

Dalmore 15-Year

For the most part I never gravitate towards food or drinks that are sweet. Scotch wise, there are brands of whiskies I personally will not go near because they are too sweet. The one exception, Dalmore! Dalmore has always been one of my favorite sweeter whiskies. What separates this brand from others is the fact…

Glenfiddich IPA Experiment

Two of my favorite things: whisky and a good IPA (India Pale Ale). So, when I saw that Glenfiddich came out with a whisky using IPA casks, well it intrigued me and I immediately knew I had to try it. To make this marriage happen, Malt Master Brian Kinsman partner with a local Speyside craft…

Bowmore: Distillery Tour

If you walk around Bowmore right as kilns are firing up, the smell of peat surrounds the town. For any peat smoke whisky lover, this smell is heavenly. This was the smell that welcomed us when we arrived at Bowmore and, as it was the town we stayed in, it was the smell we enjoyed…

Green Spot Château Léoville Barton

This week I am taking a break from writing about another Scotland distillery tour to write about Green Spot Château Léoville Barton. It’s an Irish whiskey I had been eyeing for a while, and was finally able to get it in Dublin’s airport at duty free. Green Spot by Mitchell and Son is hands down…
