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…

South Boston Irish Whiskey

South Boston has very strong Irish-American heritage so it is fitting that one of the products put out by GrandTen Distilling located in South Boston, MA is an Irish whiskey. However, we all know that for Irish whiskey to be called Irish whiskey, it actually has to be made in Ireland. In order to put…

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.
