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. Thank goodness. Irish Whiskey used to be the norm. Prior to the coffey still it was the drink of choice. Things changed, there […]

Powers 12 John’s Lane Release

This past year (2018) I had lots and lots of plans.

What I mean is after experiencing a few different levels of Irish whiskey, […]

Midleton Dair Ghaelach Tree 9

Last whiskey reviewed in Ireland. Wanted to have more, but finally had to tap out. Hit my budget for the trip, ladies and gentlemen. And since I’m going out with a bang, and since we’re at the Bison Bar & B.B.Q., and since they were nice enough to give me a tour of their smoker […]
