Celtic Cask Ceathair Deag Review

Celtic Cask Ceathair Deag Review

Celtic Cask Ceathair Deag is a private bottling, of an Irish single malt, by the Celtic Whiskey Shop. Though like all of the releases, at least the ones I’ve had, they didn’t just grab something off of the shelf and bottle it. No they did an extensive finishing on the whiskey, this time in a… Continue!

Bushmills Distillery Reserve Review

Bushmills Distillery Reserve Review

Bushmills Distillery Reserve is a special 12-year-old release that’s only available at the Bushmill’s Distillery itself. It’s a single malt and the majority of the casks used to make this release are sourced from ex-Sherry casks withe ex-Bourbon casks playing a minor role. We tried this whiskey at a private whiskey tasting and normally the… Continue!

1985 Midleton Very Rare Review

1985 Midleton Very Rare Review

1985 Midleton Very Rare is the first year the Very Rare made an appearance. The brain child of Master Distiller Barry Crockett, the MIdleton Very Rare has been the leading premium release from the Midleton distillery until a few years ago when the Single Pot Still limited releases started hitting the market. Though when it… Continue!

Redbreast Mano A Lamh Review

Redbreast Mano A Lamh Review

Redbreast Mano A Lamh is a first for Redbreast in several ways. For starters it’s the first NAS release they’ve ever released. It’s also the first time they’ve used 100% sherry barrels in a release. This whiskey was a special release so it’s not available anymore unfortunately, but they do tend to show up in… Continue!

Tullamore DEW Cider Cask Review

Tullamore DEW Cider Cask Review

Tullamore DEW Cider Cask is Tullamore’s travel retail offering which, thanks to a friend, I was able to try and I have to say… it’s quite good. It’s not going to blow your mind, but compared to the regular Tullamore it has a bit more to offer… as it should. In Tullamore’s Words: Tullamore DEW… Continue!

West Cork Barrel Proof Review

West Cork Barrel Proof Review

West Cork Barrel Proof is the culmination of 2/3 of my theory about blended Irish whiskey. I’ve long theorized that if Irish blends were delivered at a higher proof, non chill-filtered and allowed to “marry” for a longer period of time than individually aged it would turn the whiskey into something that far surpassed what… Continue!

West Cork Black Reserve Review

West Cork Black Reserve Review

If after reading this review you go out looking for the West Cork Black Reserve but don’t find it that’s because the name has recently changed to the Black Cask. Different name, but it’s the same whiskey except for the proof. The West Cork Black Reserve was a bottled at 43% whereas the current is… Continue!

Jameson 18 Years Review

Jameson 18 Years Review

Jameson 18 Years Limited Reserve is one of Jameson’s regular premium releases that utilizes three different cask types to bring out the unique flavors and aromas that exist in this whiskey. The combination of ex-Bourbon, ex-Sherry and First-Fill ex-Bourbon casks creates something unique and interesting in this whiskey which I’ll let Jameson expound upon a… Continue!

1970s Powers Review

1970s Powers Review

This 1970s Powers was distilled at the original John’s Lane Distillery in Dublin, Ireland which operated from 1791 – 1974. After 1974 the Irish Distiller’s group (which they were a founding member of in 1966) moved all of the operations for Power’s whiskey to the Midleton distillery. The once ultra-modern John’s Lane distillery, which even… Continue!

Dunsmore Irish Whiskey Review

Dunsmore Irish Whiskey Review

Dunsmore Irish Whiskey is an interesting whiskey because there is almost no information about it online so to get any info we need to turn to the bottle. From the label: Dunsmore Irish Whiskey “Irish Whiskey. A blend of 100% Irish Whiskey mellowed in a combination of Bourbon and Wine oak barrels. Ireland’s finest blended… Continue!
