    That's because it is and I like it as well.

    Re: A good Irish whisky?

    Anyone out there break down and spend the small fortune on the Redbreast 21 yet? If so, have you tried it,just curious how it tastes , I saw it the other day in a locked case......$275.00! Don't think I will ever break down for that one, even though I really like all their offerings.
    Everyday my spirit seems to find its way to the bottom of a glass...... Don

    It is fantastic. They actually have some 28 year old juice mixed in.

    I managed to get lucky (twice!) and get a bottle of it from TPS for considerably less than $275. I concur that it is indeed fantastic. To me there was this truly noteworthy almost tropical fruit note that lingers through the palate into the finish. Not sure it quite knocks the Barry Crockett Legacy off the top of the heap for me (Legacy is just such a refined yet deep whiskey to me) but it sure comes close.

    A few GBS members also got a chance to try it at the GBS St. Patty's Day gathering.

    RB21 goes for about $230 here. I have a hard time justifying that, given that I'm not super enthusiastic about Irish Whiskey anyway. I do enjoy the Redbreast line as well as the Tyrconnell finished 10 yr, but I think RB21 would need to be around $150 to really tickle my curiosity pickle. But if you're a greater fan ofIrish whiske than I am, I can see why folks would spend the $230ish to try this.

    It's closer to $300 here. If I could find it under $250 Id snag it. Although Bruce was kind enough to share his with me so I know how good it is and I love Irish whiskey.

    if you're ever in the VA/MD/DC area and want to purchase one, let me know. I don't think they are going anywhere anytime soon.

    $205 including tax. Practically a steal...
