Most of them are blends, but several like Knappogue, Connemara, and a few others are single distillery Irish whiskys. ~ Huntsman

I am fairly sure that Clontarf and Tyrconnell are also single malt whiskies.

Yep! The names escaped me (even though, I know, they were already mentioned).

Thanks those have now made my list. As for the "super peat", that i mentioned. That was just to indicate range. The 10 & 25 Ardberg i have gets drunk far less than Highland Park, Mcallan & Springbank ...

I'm in super-nitpicking mode now! If the beverege is Irish or American*, it's spelled "whiskey." If it's Scottish or Canadian, it's spelled "whisky."

*There are, as far as I know, two exceptions to this. One is Maker's Mark; I don't recall the other and am too lazy to go downstairs and comb through my Micael Jackson books to find it.

Bushmills is in the north, and Midleton in the south. Other than that, I cannot see any connection. If such prejudices exist, they did not survive the trip across the Atlantic if my family's experience is any indication.

Thanks. I have been slipping and need watching after. ~ Huntsman

I've taken quite a liking to Michael Collins 10 Year. My absolute favorite is Green Spot, but I can't justify the shipping cost.

I can't recall the exact name, but was with a friend at the Harp and Celt in downtown Orlando early on New Year's eve and we tried some "[cant recall the first part] Mor". Boy was it fiery. I mean like a kick in the balls. Great flavor, but enough firepower to rock you.

Gotta get it again when we go back smile.gif

Awwwright.....

Do yourself a LARGE favor and save some bucks B/C

when you spring for Jameson 18yr > you'll be blown away, away, away, away.....

I read @ it on a whiskey flyer written by a major leaguer Mick-Juicer and he was right on!

The stuff goes down like the finest pure-spun golden silk to leave you pleasantly filled with

niceness, niceness, buzz buzz buzz.......

Catholics prefer Jameson, Busmill was the Protestant whiskey. However, now a Protestant family owns Jameson and Catholic family Bushmill. so take that fwiw.

Is that true? I thought that was something Davis Simon made up.

I appreciate a good expensive whiskey as much as any guy, but when it comes to my standard drink, I go for Tullamore Dew 12 year.
