Harry and Frodo joined me at my home for an Irish Whiskey tasting friday night which ran into the wee hours of the next morning being St. Patrick's Day. Because we hadn't had the chance for a get together for quite sometime, our Irish Whiskey tasting session quickly turned into an Irish/Scottish event with Harry adding to the table: PC 5, a sample of Gordon's Blood Tub, an Arran and a couple of Bladnoch's for good measure. It was one of our more "informal" tastings as we reached for bottlings that we hadn't tried before or not in a long time. It was really fun.
With regards to the Irish line-up, these were the offerings:
Redbreast 15 yo, Greenore 8 yo, Tryconnell, Old Bushmills 16 yo, Tullamore Dew Heritage, Jameson (no age statement)
I like them all! But, my favourites of the night (and the only two that were also cracked open by Harry and Frodo) have to be the first two topping the list. The Greenore 8 yo is a lovely, soft grain whiskey. I would highly recommend it to anyone who is exploring grain whiskies.
The Happy Campers:
