    Re: Any fans of Irish whiskey?

    Yes, the Tullamore 12 yr old is much much better than the standard Tullamore.


    There's also a new Redbreast 15 yr old out bottled at 46 abv and at 46%.

    I'll have to watch for both of those. I have the "regular" ones and I enjoy them.

    The standard Redbreast is bottled at 12 yrs and at 40% abv. There's a new unchillfiltered one released that's 15 years and bottled at 46%. I have not tried it, but am greatly looking forward to having some.

    The Power's Gold Label I had last night was good stuff, too. The nose seemed a bit odd, almost toast-like, but it was quite tasty. It had a smooth, honeyed quality to it, with a hint of the classic pot-still tang. I don't know how much (if any) pot-still goes into the blend, but for under $20, it's a steal.

    Irish whiskey is awesome. Powers has quite a high pot still content and is about the best Irish whiskey in its price range. My personal favorite is Tullamore Dew 12yr. Jameson 12yr. is also very good. On the other end of the spectrum, regular Bushmills is terrible!

    I'm a big fan of Irish too and for Christmas I got a bottle of Connemara 12 YO. It came in a really nice wood container. Haven't tried it yet but I do like the standard and cask strength versions so I'm thinking this is going to be good too!

    Thomas,

    You might want to try a Bushmills Single Malt rather than the blends for what is IMHO a better dram... The 10yo is OK, the 16yo is much, much better and if you can get into a bottle of the Millenium series then we got somethin' to talk about...that stuff rocks!

    If you get a chance to taste any of these, I'd be interested in reading your post for the tasting notes and impressions.

    Does any one get into Knappogue Castle??

    Re: Any fans of Irish whiskey?

    Outta curiosity, I thought I read something about different Millenium editions. I have a bottle of it that came from Liquor Barn in Louisville distilled in 1975. I'm guessing bottled in 1999. Was there another or am I mistaken?
