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…

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.

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…

Green Spot – Irish Single Pot Still Whiskey

I have enjoyed Irish whiskey, but before this year I had not found an Irish whiskey that I truly loved and could rave about. It was this past March when my friend Melissa and I headed to Dublin, Ireland for a little vacation. It was while out on one of our nights that we came…
