    Re: Any fans of Irish whiskey?

    That seems kind of excessive for Redbreast, I believe I paid abound $40 for my last bottle in KY. It's quite nice, with a very lively palate, but I don't think $12 a shot is quite worth it.

    Re: Any fans of Irish whiskey?

    Hi Barturtle,
    The price you paid for a bottle is close to what I saw at the liquior store here. They always say, "Try it in a bar before you shell out for a bottle." That rarely works for me. In Japan when I see something like Red Breast in a bar I think, "Hmm. Two or Three shots and I could buy the bottle. I had better buy the bottle." That is not true of every bar here but is true of most of them that stock things you can't find in the supermarket.

    Re: Any fans of Irish whiskey?

    I have wanted to try the Red Breast for a while now. It is a little bit expensive, I don't remember the price for a bottle when I have seen it but it was somewhere in the range of two good bottles of bourbon
    In Sweden Redbreast goes for approximately the same price as EC 12, i.e. a good price.

    Be sure to try Green Spot if you can find it. If forced to choose I would opt for Redbreast but GS offers an interesting variation on the theme.

    You guys in the US are lucky. I pay the same for my bourbon as I do for Red Breast.

    Thanks,
    I have heard from friends in Canada about the high prices whiskey drinkers have to put up with. How is the selection where you are?

    Not that good. Not for bourbon anyway. Fortunately, I only live about 45 minutes from Detroit so I get over there frequently. I try and pick up something whenever I can. I wish we had some real selection though so I could partake in some of the BOTM selections.

    Re: Any fans of Irish whiskey?

    Interesting thread. I had the opportunity to ask a true Irishman The Question:
    Bushmills, or Jameson?
    Bush was his answer, and I concur, but I have been known to swig Jameson's on occaision.
