Irish Whiskey recommendations
So I got knocked off my bike last night, breaking my collarbone. My bosses husband gave me a lift to hospital and took my bike in. He’s Irish, and drinks whiskey, so I thought a wee drop of something would be a nice thank-you.
Any recommendations? If it was whisky I’d have a clue … all I know are the usual big brands.Posted 6 years agomidlifecrashesSubscriber
As an Irishman who drinks whiskey, Bushmills single malt, the 10yo, would always be appreciated. The older ones don’t add that much, imo, 21yo not very nice. Black Bush is great too, single malts aren’t all there is to whiskies. If you can get some, Coleraine (my home town) is an alternative blend of Bushmills not usually sold over here, and a nice change.Posted 6 years agoF-Stop JunkieMember
Don’t scoff, but the Sainsbury’s Taste the Difference Dun Leire 8 year old (I think) has won a medal and been very highly rated. Made by Cooleys, easy to find, under £20 a bottle (just) and rather nice.
(If you want to spend a bit more, Johnnie Walker Green label on offer, or Glenfiddich 18 year old if Tescos are still doing it on offer for £30)Posted 6 years agobig_n_daftMember
I stayed a week in Bundoran out of season surfing and this and that, after getting used to the local pubs that stopped serving food at 6 I tried the off licence and asked for a recomendation of a decent Irish. They just said everyone drinks the cheap stuff and so I followed suit 😀Posted 6 years ago
