Irishman Single Malt

There’s some products out there that are named in such a way that we wonder if they are a gimmick or not. For instance, the same company that makes Irishman Single Malt also makes Writers Tears.

Bushmills 21

Tullamore Dew Special Reserve 12

Thanks to /u/Tsefly for the sample. Irish whiskey is introduced to different people in many different ways. Most of us in our teens (I don’t condone teenage drinking, but I’m also not in denial). Some of us have it later on, mixed with coke, and use it to get drunk. A small contingent of us enjoy […]
