Default What other Spirits do you enjoy?

I recently tried a bottle of Irish Whiskey and fell in love with it. Next to rum this is now my favorite spirit. Since trying the bottle of Tallamore Dew I have gone out and bought 5 other bottles of Irish Whiskey to start a decent selction in my cabinet. I quickly discovered that there are not nearly as many brands of Irish Whiskey as rum...oh well just meens my collection will be complete before my rum collection

Was that Irish Tallamore or Tullamore? Just the Flannigan in me coming out here.

As you've discovered Irish Whisky, (also one of my favorites), you might enjoy a liquer named Celtic Crossing!

Cold beer and rum, that's it. I've also given up drinking wine as it gets warm too quickly and it looks silly with ice in it. I also don't have any more room for other spirits in my house. I'm trying to decide what to do with the few bottles of other sprits now, as I need the space for new rums and the Red Cross doesn't accept liquor!!!

I'll drink anything that isn't Jack Daniels. Jack has a bad effect on me.

Generally I like Grey Goose or Kettle One vodka, Tanqueray Gin, Crown Royal Whiskey, Sazerac Whiskey, and various beers and ciders.

If you ever have the chance check out the Midleton Very Rare Irish whiskey. It's my personal favourite and delicious.

I also enjoy sipping tequilas - the Arette Unique, Cuervo reserve da familia....

My next Irish Whiskey to try is Red Breast. Heard good reviews about this one.

Dood: Have you ever tried George Dickel #12...it runs circles around Jack...not even in the same league in my book.

You hit a soft spot Blue...Dickel #12 is a Damn good Tennessee Whiskey in my book.
