I recently bought a few bottles of the Midleton Very Rare. The 2005 and 2004 are very very drinkable. Wonderfully soft fruitcake.
I also love Co. Clare, as that's where my father is from - Lisdoonvarna. There's a very good whisky pub in Ballyvaughn called O'Loclains... http://www.irishwhiskeybar.com/location.html

I know Lisdoonvarna very well, several really good nights spent there - The Roadside Tavern, The Royal Spa, The Matchmaker and Meg McGuires - to name a few. I also have very fond memories of playing in the pubs in Doolin. I'll have to go back one day!

Yes, but not my own . . . so don't tell anyone!

Actually, my favorite is the 12 y.o reserve that you can only get at the old distillery, but they're pretty much the same. I can't tell the difference to be honest, except that it feels more special to drink the 12 reserve. If anybody can taste any differences I'd like to hear what they are. One that I'm really eager to try is the redbreast 12 and it seems as if it's quite popular which makes me wish I had a dram right now!
