If you like your Whiskey big, upfront and spicy then the Jameson Select Reserve (€40.00, down from €51.99) is the one for you. Also known as the Black Barrel, this is a triple distilled blend, predominately of pot still but with a portion of small batch grain. This Whiskey differs from the rest of the Jameson range in that the ex-bourbon barrels used for ageing undergo an additional charring resulting in a bigger body and increased richness.
Tyrconnell is a brand that has its roots in the 1900’sand was named after a horse that won a famous race at odds of 100 to 1. The brand went out of business in the 1970’s before being resurrected by Cooley Whiskey. The fresh and fruity Tyrconnell Madeira cask finish (€71.00, down from €81.99) is definitely one to try!
To round up I have to include the Teeling Small Batch (€37.00 down from €37.99). This easy drinking whiskey is a double distilled blend of malt and grain, finished in ex-rum casks which lend a smoothness and sweet spice to the whiskey. Whichever you choose we have plenty on offer in our Irish Whiskey Sale running all through Christmas (ending 5th of January). Sláinte!
