Was at my local store tonight and it wasn't good news. 2 of my favorites went way up in price. Jamesons 12 went up 5.00 a bottle and Redbreast 12 went up 8.00 a bottle. The bottle of Redbreast cask strength I bought this spring was only 4.00 more than the price of the 80 proof is now. Canadian club had some steep hikes too, some as much as 3.00-4.00 a 750!

Harsh.

Hasnt changed around here (Redbreast at any rate) and here's hoping it doesn't!

Of course Jameson would go up-- it's the thin, overly-sweet, glycerin-laden "whiskey" that IDG makes for American sissies.

Buy Powers 12yr. Trust me on that. Excellent taste, and pretty affordable. Powers is the top Irish whiskey IN IRELAND!

Kellan, Kilbeggan, and Tullamore DEW are still pretty cheap. Give them a good look as well.

I have bottles of nearly everything available here. My favorite is tullamore Dew 12. The powers 12 as well as the regular are both excellent too!

I like Kilbeggan, but I go the the Bushmill handle. $39.00
