    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.

    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.

    Irish for March is real fitting. Now if I could only get my hands on some Green Spot...

    Green Spot just hit the shelves in Atlanta. Surprised it isn't already in Chicago.

    Now if only Yellow Spot would follow suit!
    That yella whiskey runnin' down my throat like honey dew vine water and I took another slash…
