They also produce whiskeys for some independent distributors. One is called Feckin' (a lot like Kilbeggan, but a little sweeter and heavier), and another is called Michael Collins (I haven't had this one yet).
    Don't forget Cooley's best, the peated Connemara!

    Don't get me wrong, I absolutely love the stuff! I only left it out because it usually sells at a price that is higher than the range specified by the OP.

    I've never trued Connemera but I'd imagine that a peated whiskey would hardly be the best introduction to Irish whiskey. Not exactly representative of the regional style, is what I mean.

    You are right but it's still good. Kind of reminds me of McCarthy's, styled like an Islay but not as extreme. It is definitely not your typical Irish.

    Michael Collins single malt is an Irish single malt whiskey that tastes like a single malt scotch. I kind of like it for the wrong reasons (tastes less 'Irish'). Not sure on price though, maybe in 30s-40s?

    Michael Collins also has a blend, as well. That's the one I was referring to, since it isn't likely to top $25 USD.
