Michael Collins Single Malt

Postby shoganai » Sun May 20, 2007 2:52 am

I saw a bottle whilst browsing in a whisky Mecca today. It was tempting, although there were others that were more tempting so I didn't buy it.

Has anyone tried it? Good? How's it compare to Michael Collins Blend or Redbreast?

For what it's worth, I really like the regular Michael Collins blend and think it's an incredible value for the price.

I don't know, but he blends a helluva whisky. Click here to see I'm not crazy.

Not all of 'em. There's a select bunch that want to hang from his :shock: .

Here's some info on Michael Collins - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Michael_Co ... _leader%29

He was an Irish revolutionary.

I hope we can stay away from politics. We generally manage that rather well ;)

This is history rather than politics, I'd say. And it's related to whiskey.

Personally, I don't think it's a suitable name for a brand, but there you go.

The other side in the Irish civil war was kind of responsible of the Irish whiskey industry's decline.

Back to Shoganai's question...I've had both, and think the single malt is much better than the blended version. You really should give it a try...
