    Re: A good Irish whisky?

    I would be interested in trying the new Powers as well, higher proof and NCF are both a plus.

    Well, I done went and picked me up a bottle of PJL, today. Sippin' on a couple of pours this evening, and I am again floored by this beautiful whiskey. Down goes Frazier!! Down goes Frazier!!! I must do a SBS with the RBCS, as I'm thinking that I may enjoy this even more?!?!?! The nose is absolute Heaven. So clean! So fresh! Freshly laundered white cotton sheets after air dried out on the clothes line. Yeah, I know, sounding like Jim Murray.... But dang it, that's what it is! Stunning. Really. And the palate and finish bring on all of the honey, toffee, and light caramel hits in absolute controlled strength. Dazzling, Dazzling whiskey!

    Re: A good Irish whisky?

    I can't agree enough here the RB12 CS was top rank for me until I first tried the PJL and now I'm completely assured it is a superior whisky,at least for me it is.The Yellow Spot is divine,but availability on the other hand......for the time being.PJL just aligns so well to a bourbon drinkers palate it is a rather easy transition.

    Well, all that arm twistin' from you guys, and now I've just gone and purchased bottles of RB12 CS, PJL (x2) and Greenspot (x2) to go along with my sittin'-there-lonely bottle of Yellow Spot. I'll leave it to you guys to explain the bill to my wife!

    Hey, I got a solution, bro. I'll explain it to your wife and you explain it to mine, and those lovely ladies will be too polite to raise their voices at complete strangers. Problem solved! (Man, it sure does pay to be deep thinkers like us, eh Joe?)

    Re: A good Irish whisky?

    I tried the Tullamore Dew Phoenix and it exceeded expectations. I would like to try the Green/Yellow/Red Spots as well at some point.

    Re: A good Irish whisky?

    I really enjoy Jameson Select Reserve. Big step up from regular Jameson. Very well blended (balanced bourbon cask with sherry cask)...it tastes like Green Spot mixed with well aged grain whisky.
