    Powers. Johns. Lane.

    Hopefully available where you are and well worth seeking out, especially for a bourbon fan.

    Redbreast 12 regular or the Cask Strength. Both are great options. Additionally, I really enjoyed Tyrconnell's barrel finish series. Especially the Madeira.

    Yes, what he said. Skip the older Redbreasts. You don't really get more bang for your buck, and you will definitely pay more bucks. And I was pleasantly surprised with the Tyrconnell Madeira Finish. Delicious stuff. Power's Johns Lane is also splendid.

    The Redbreast 12 Cask Strength is in my Top 5 All Time whiskies of any kind. I also was floored by how good the Power's John Lane was when I had it at the Gazebo in Bardstown last KBF.

    Thanks, for the input so far,I am already very familiar with the Redbreast line, and am very fond of it , love 'em all.Looking for something along the same lines. Are there different versions of the Powers John lane?

    There are different versions of the Powers line, Johns Lane being one of them.

    Re: A good Irish whisky?

    Straight Line Irish? ....You might try Bushmills; pretty good; .... Or, sweeter? Try Tullamore Dew... or even better? Try TD 12-year (only a bit different/better). ...Just my own opinion.
