    Foreign Whisky of the Month - 02/2014: ..... ?

    Sorry guys, I sort of fell asleep at the wheel for this next month. I am thinking since it's a short month, maybe we just recap what we've went through so far and put up a poll later in the month for March with more than 3 options, maybe 5 this time.

    This is a great idea. Good opportunity to discuss the next number of months. Some distilleries on my mind:

    Longmorn
    Glendronach
    Kilchoman
    North British (or any distillery making single grain scotch)
    Compass Box
    Midleton
    Glenfarclas

    I like the idea of doing Single Grain as Category - of course the most common Grain that people that people can get is Compass Box Hedonism - which I love. Maybe an Irish Whisky for March - I'd pick Red Breast. Or an Irish Distillery since there aren't exactly a lot to choose from. The more I think about it Red Breast 12, RB 12 Cask, RB 15, RB 21 - would give us something to chew on and it's topical with St Patrick's day.

    I like the idea of going with a non-Scottish distillery/blender/brand Something Irish is topical for St. Patrick's Day. Tyrconnell and Redbreast come to mind. If Irish is decided against, I'd still recommend we go with a "world" distiller like Amrut or Nikka.

    Another vote for Kilchoman. Perhaps Machir Bay?

    I would be up for an Irish distillery for St. Patty's!
    That yella whiskey runnin' down my throat like honey dew vine water and I took another slash…

    Irish for March seems fitting.

    I second Glendronach (because I need an excuse to open a bottle) and Compass Box (because I have several open).

    I could also contribute a lot more to the Glendronach conversation. Some Compass Box too.

    I like the idea of an Irish for March, very fitting and very good idea. I know very little about Irish so I'll ask for more input as it gets closer, but would like to do a poll to keep it fun.
