Proper No. Twelve

Thanks to whomever found devoz  and handed him a sample of this for me… I think? I know next to little about the UFC (Ultimate Fighting Championship) or MMA (Mixed Martial Arts) in general, nor will I pretend to understand it. I can’t watch people do sports because I’d rather take part in a sport, even if […]

Tipperary 17 2002 Rum Cask

It’s tough when you’re starting a distillery. There’s a very, very high barrier to entry. We live in a time when the richest among us demand higher returns on investment, meaning if you have an idea and no money then you may as well not have an idea at all. Or you can keep that […]

Knappogue Castle 1951

Thanks to /u/Scotchguy_TO  for this sample. I enjoy Irish Whiskey. A few years ago that was, for some reason, a statement that had people up in arms in some whiskey circles. Now it’s fine.

Teeling 10 2008 Single Cask

Thanks to /u/smoked_herring[+2] for this sample.

Part of me […]

Cooley 15 1992 A.D. Rattray

I enjoy Irish whiskey. So brave, am I right? Enjoying what used to account for 60% of all whiskey sold on the planet? What next, am I going to express my love for chocolate or how much rice I eat(I used to avoid rice, that’s a subject for another time)? Joking aside, I enjoy the […]

Teeling 12 Collinstown Collection

Let’s be honest: When someone talks about Irish whiskey, they typically speak of a lower end, everyday drink that is smooth though typically doesn’t break the mould. That’s mostly because the industry has taken a hit over the last century. English trade embargos, the Coffey still, American prohibition, and even Canadian’s calling uncut, poisonous whisky […]
