This question is for Aidan or anyone.
Is it possible to purchase Irish whiskey
above 40 abv outside of Ireland specifically
here in the U.S.A? At times I have purchased
other alternatives due to this factor.
Another vote is for "Buffalo Trace"
a very woody rich tasting bourbon, from a distillery of the same name{fomerly Ancient Age}.

I'm not sure if you can buy it in stores in the U.S., but it's available for shipping from www.classicwhiskey.com.

Is Buffalo Trace hard to find?

Irish Whiskey over 40% is hard to find here in the US. I've bought only a few:

Tullamore Dew (crock), 43% (current bottling is at 40%)
Bushmill's Millennium '75, 43%
Jameson 7yo. 43% (Bow Street 1/5 from '70's)
Daly's Tullamore 65.9%!, (Cadenhead, rare now)

Aidan,
Thanks for the sight! I have been very
partial to the Jamesons 1780That full sherry
finish is just great.
So far Buffalo Trace is still pretty
pretty limited to the states of Illinois ,Indiana and naturally Kentucky
The price is around 20 U.S dollars
sams-wine.com is a possible site to check
for purchase. ....Dana

blackkeno,
Thanks for your info.
Perhaps you or someone has any theories or information in what whiskies are used in Knappogue Castle.
Have had some nice experiences [1991and1992]I believe over the last 2 or 3years. Thanks!

The knappogue Castle is from the Cooley Distillery. The distillery stopped production for a year, though, so one of the vingates will be from Bushmills' malt. There's also a 1951 Knappogue castle from the old B, Daley Distillery in Tullamore. This is very expensive.
