What was once the most popular spirit in the world and fell on hard times throughout most of the 20th century, Irish Whiskeys have seen a resurgence in the past two decades, and is now the fastest growing spirit category. There’s a lot more to Irish Whiskey than Jameson!
Green Spot ($61.99): Approximately 6000 bottles produced each year. A blend of 8- and 9-year old whiskeys, with 25% matured in old Sherry casks. With aromas of citrus, tropical fruits, vanilla, and a rich palate with refreshing notes of herbs and eucalyptus. A great sipping whiskey that is undoubtedly one of the greatest in the world.
Redbreast 12 Year ($59.99): Named Irish Whiskey of the year in 2013 by venerable critic Jim Murray, this is a quintessential Irish whiskey, with nutty and rich aromas of dried and candied fruit, and a spicy, yet creamy palate that lingers.
