    Irish whiskey -- what's your favorite?

    I'm very partial to Irish.

    I've never had Redbreast, or single malt Michael Collins, or any of the expensive ones, but Powers and especially Old Bushmills are delicious to me.

    What's your favorite?

    Redbreast 12*, 15, and Green Spot.

    *by all accounts the 12yo cask strength is even better, but I haven't tried it since it has not been made available in Canada yet.

    1) Powers John Lane
    2) Middleton Barry Crockett (But WAY overpriced....I would never buy it)
    2) Green Spot

    NOTE: I have not had Yellow Spot (or had too much before tasting it to remember I had it) so it might break into the top 3 in the near future

    Redbreast 12 CS is the only one I've had that I actively enjoy and want to have on hand. But I find all of the sub $60 Jamison and Bushmills blends to be perfectly fine. Many years ago I had the three single malt Bushmills and thought well of them at the time. I need to look into Powers, Tyrconnel (sp?) and the Spots.

    I've gone through a lot of Black Bush over the years.

    I like the Knappogue Castle 12 year, and the Tyrconnell Madeira cask is worth looking for. But the Redbreast CS is the only Irish that holds its own against my favorite bourbons.

    Redbreast 12 does it for me.

    I spent an evening at Knappogue Castle once, many years ago. All I remember is a good meal, lots of Irish beer, a bit of whiskey, and driving on the wrong side of the road on the way back to the B&B.

    Yes Alden, those narrow roads in Ireland are quite scary, but worth it to have tried Powers John's Lane. It is not only Ireland's best, but one of the world's great whiskies. My second favorite Irish is Knappogue Castle 12 yr.
