Redbreast Lustau Edition

To date, I’ve not found a Redbreast whiskey I’ve not liked and the Lustau Edition is no exception. This edition was released towards the end of 2016 and was born from a collaboration between the Bodegas Lustau and Midleton Distillery. Bodega Lustau is a sherry producer in Jerez, Spain. The vineyard’s history dates back to…

The Irishman 12-year Whiskey

Happy St. Patrick’s Day to all! Today’s post, yes, you’ve guessed it, an Irish Whiskey, The Irishman 12-year. I’ll keep this post short and sweet. This 12-year is triple distilled and matured exclusively in first fill bourbon casks. The distillery only produces about 6000 bottles of the 12-year every year. My introduction to the Irishman…

The Irishman Founders Reserve

As there will only be 12 days till Christmas after today, I was going to load my gift guide post however, I could not very well do that before posting a write up about The Irishman Founders Reserve. The reason being, well… spoiler alert, it made my gift guide and I just had to write…

Jameson Caskmates Irish Whiskey

What happens when whiskey meets craft stout? Jameson Caskmates is what happens. This concept came about after a conversation between the Jameson head distiller and the Cork’s Franciscan Well Brewery head brewer. Jameson agreed to send some whiskey barrels over to the brewery for them to age their stout and then the brewery sent those…

Paddy Irish Whiskey

Happy St. Patrick’s Day! I am wearing my bright green pants not only because of St. Patrick’s Day but also in hopes that it brings me luck on my March Madness Brackets. While one of my visits to Ireland, someone ask me if it was Boston who colored the river green in honor of St….

Powers Gold Label 12 Year-Old Special Reserve

Happy Columbus Day, that is, if you are here in the US. Hopefully you are luckier than I am and have today off. Unfortunately, it’s a holiday the company I work for doesn’t really observe. But nonetheless, I do enjoy that the office is somewhat quiet today, it means I won’t have many interruptions writing…

Jameson Rarest Vintage Reserve

I have had the privilege of having tasted a significant amount of whiskies and to my surprise; it was only this year that I first wrote a post about Jameson. That post was on their 18 year-old Limited Reserve. Believe it or not, I am going to top that first Jameson post with what I…

Teeling Small Batch Whiskey

It’s Marathon Monday in Boston and the city is buzzing even though it’s a chilly rainy day. I do love seeing all the runners and the tourists in the city this time of year especially after what happened two years ago with the Boston Marathon bombing. Good luck to all the runners and if you…

Kilbeggan Irish Whiskey

Tomorrow is St. Patrick’s Day so it’s fitting that today I write about an Irish whiskey I had not tasted till about a couple weeks ago. Kilbeggan has been on my radar for a while so when I attended Julio’s Liquor Store, Go! Whisk(e)y Weekend 2015 a couple of weeks ago and saw it there,…
