Proper No. Twelve Irish Whiskey

Proper No. Twelve is an Irish whiskey created by recently retired MMA fighter Conor McGregor. The name of the whiskey pays tribute to where McGregor comes from in Ireland, Dublin 12. I was able to sample this triple distilled blended whiskey during a St. Patrick’s Day tasting at Yankee Spirits in Attleboro, MA., so here…

Red Spot | Single Pot Still Irish Whiskey

This past Wednesday we attended an Irish whiskey tasting at Yankee Spirits in Attleboro, MA. We were thrilled to taste all the whiskies being featured but deep down we attended because we were told there would be samplings of Red Spot. Green Spot being one of our favorite Irish whiskies we had to attend but…

Tullamore D.E.W. 15-year Trilogy

Tullamore D.E.W. is a blended Irish whiskey that doesn’t need introduction. They have become a master at blending triple distilled Irish pot still, malt and grain whiskies. Although I’ve had a chance to taste and write about their Original, Old Bonded Warehouse, Heritage Blend and Phoenix, the 15-year blend was the first bottle from the…

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…

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…

Tullamore D.E.W. Phoenix

I have always said that one of my favorite things to do is share good whiskey with friends and this weekend was no exception. My friends Matt and Sarah are having a baby so I was down in Cape Cod attending the baby shower. I know I am suppose to get a baby gift, but…

Triple Smoke – Corsair Distillery

What does the way you walk say about you? To be honest, I have no idea what my walk says about me, but if a study was done on the way the three guys on the Triple Smoke bottle walked, I bet it would say that those guys are pretty cool dudes. I’ll be honest;…

Knappogue Castle12 year-old Single Malt Irish Whiskey

Knappogue Castle isn’t just a castle in County Clare, Ireland built on 1467 for the MacNamara clan; it is also the name of a very tasty Irish single malt whiskey. Lavoné Dickensheets Andrews and her husband Mark Edwin Andrews bought the castle back in the 1960’s. While Mrs. Andrews kept busy with the restoration process,…

Yellow Spot 12 year-old

Just about a week ago I was in France enjoying the country, food, wine and its culture. It was extremely hard to come back stateside but, there was one thing I had to do before leaving Europe and that was acquiring a bottle of the Irish whiskey Yellow Spot. Lucky for me, our connection flight…

Highland Park 30 year-old

There was just one finger left and I was extremely excited to have been the one to get it. I was taught to share as a kid, but with just one finger left I was not sharing this Highland Park 30 with anyone. I got this last finger courtesy of Frank at The Last Hurrah….

Powers Gold Label

What do game nights with friends bring? Well lots of alcohol of course, followed by buffoonery, competitiveness, laughter and fun. I’ve always said that the best drams I’ve shared, I’ve shared with friends. At a recent game night, deep into the evening, my friend Matt brings out Powers. Now prior to this instance I had…

Redbreast 15 year-old Single Pot Still

I’ve said this before and I will say it again, for a long time I was not an Irish whiskey drinker. I also wasn’t much of a Bourbon/American whiskey drinker either, but that too has changed.  Although I love Scotch it is certainly not the only great whisky out there and I am glad I’ve…
