West Cork Single Malt 10 Years Review

West Cork Single Malt 10 Years Review

West Cork Single Malt 10 Years is the culmination of nearly 14 years of work by the folks at West Cork… which makes me both happy and sad. Happy to have a new, well aged, Irish single malt on the market makes me quite happy. Having it delivered at a neutered 40% and chill-filtered does…

West Cork Bourbon Cask Irish Whiskey Review

West Cork Bourbon Cask Irish Whiskey Review

West Cork Bourbon Cask Irish Whiskey hails from the massively interesting West Cork distillery. A young distillery that got its start almost 14 years ago and has been slowly putting out more and more impressive releases. They’re a home-grown operation that brings something a bit new to the Irish whiskey game… transparency. In West Cork’s…

Tullamore DEW Review

Tullamore DEW Review

When it comes to just regular old blended Irish Whiskey Tullamore DEW is one of the better options and one of my favorites to keep around the house for mixing and even sipping now and then. It has a heavier feel to it than many blends (Irish or Scottish) and carries with it a nice sense of…

Teeling 23 Years Single Malt Review

Teeling 23 Years Single Malt Review

Teeling 23 Years Single Malt is a distillery exclusive whiskey. I’ve never been, but I got this sample from a very generous friend who has and as you can see from the photo it was a wonderful red hue to it which means one thing… sherry. Specifically this Teeling 23 Years Single Malt has been…

1990s Bushmills Black Bush Review

1990s Bushmills Black Bush Review

Trying things like this 1990s Bushmills Black Bush is a treat. Beyond just being a snapshot into what the Bushmills of old was like it’s a snapshot into what whiskey drinkers were enjoying before I truly discovered whiskey. Back in the late 90s the extent of my whiskey consumption was shots of Jack, Jim and…

Jameson Caskmates Angel City Review

Jameson Caskmates Angel City Review

Jameson Caskmates Angel City is the latest in the Jameson Caskmates series and is available only in Los Angeles. While this particular whiskey is unique to the LA market it’s not wholly unique in its arrival. Jameson has partnered up with other breweries in other major cities to collaborate and release unique versions of this…

John L. Sullivan Irish Bourbon Review

John L. Sullivan Irish Bourbon Review

I have no idea how theJohn L. Sullivan Irish Bourbon label ever passed the TTB (ok, yes, we all do), but I find it amusing. They simultaneously got away with a technically illegal label while giving transparency into what’s in the bottle: a blend of Bourbon and Irish Single Malt. In John L. Sullivan’s Words:…

Mad March Hare Poitin Review

Mad March Hare Poitin Review

Mad March Hare Poitin is the latest extension of Ireland’s native spirit which was re-legalised in 1997 after being illegal for over 300 years (1661). If you’re not familiar with poitin it’s essentially Irish moonshine. It’s an un-aged spirit that people would drink straight off the still and like American moonshine it enjoys a long…

Malt Nuts: Longmorn Tasting

Malt Nuts: Longmorn Tasting

Another Malt Nuts meeting has come and gone and this time our subject was Longmorn. This venerable Speyside distillery has been around for over a hundred years and while it may not be much of a household name in America it’s been a favorite of the Scottish blenders pretty much since its inception. Fruity and rich…

Celtic Cask Ocht Review

Celtic Cask Ocht Review

The Celtic Cask Ocht is the eight independent release by the Celtic Whiskey shop. It’s only the third of theirs I’ve tried, but it’s hard for me to imagine that they’ve done anything better than this. You’ll see what I mean when we get to the Celtic Cask Ocht review, but I feel like they’ve…
