Are you drinking anything special on St Patrick's Day?

Irish whiskey? Green drinks?

  1. This year I'm actually hosting an Irish whiskey tasting with a few friends who mainly stick to beer... figured St. Patty's was a good excuse to introduce them.

    1. I did finally break down and buy a bottle of Powers yesteday, since my Clontarf was getting toward the end. I don't find Irish whiskey all that interesting but do keep a bottle on hand.

      1. Greenspot, still my favorite whiskey although the newest bottle I got seems heavier than past bottlings. It reminds me more of the Jameson 18 rather than the light finesse that I associate with Greenspot.

        Out of the house, always powers. Everyone I've introduced this too ends up falling in love. It's a great all around whiskey and I find it has a lot more character than similarly priced Jameson/Bushmills. Anyone tried the Powers 12 year?

          1. Picked up the new cask strength version of Redbreast 12 year old pure pot still.
