Knappogue Castle 1994

Knappogue is a decent Irish Whiskey. It's got alot of fire which requires some water to help develop the flavor. I spent 27 dollars (2007)

Bushmills Black

Bushmills Black Bush is a great Irish Whiskey. This is my favorite Bushmills. You can really taste the Cherry Cask in this one. Very little fire and alot of flavor. This was a gift but I think the cost is about 30 dollars. Thanks Alan!!!

Dalmore 12 year

Dalmore 12 is an excellent Highland Scotch. It's a little peaty with a little fire. It's very good. The bottle that I have is from my Assistant Phil. Thanks Phil!! So a price on this bottle I don't have. I've heard that the DAlmore 15 is even better!!!!

McClelland's Islay

McClelland's Islay is GREAT!!! If you want to spend a little bit change for some peaty goodness get this!! This is my everyday Scotch. You'll probable need to add some water because it does have some fire to it. I bought it for 24 dollars.

McClelland's Highland

McClelland's Highland Scotch is good. This scotch has little fire to it and a wonderful taste to it. It costs about 34 dollars.

Sheep Dip

Sheep Dip is a pretty good Scotch for the cost. You'll need to some water to this to get the sweet flavor. This was given to me as a gift 4 years ago. So the cost is 25 dollars (09)

St George Whiskey

St George is a crazy Whiskey. It's distilled from a barley malt mash. Let me tell you it tastes like it! It's not to bad of a whiskey. I would recommend adding some water do to the fire effect of the AC. Let me tell you somethign else it tastes like it was made from Barley. Those of you that are beer drinkers and love beer should try this. I bought this at Big Red for 56 dollars (09).

Huber Starlight Brandy

A wonderful Brandy that my father actually let me try. Distilled in Indiana. I think you can only get it the distiller. So if anyone goes by there let me know so you I can have you pick-up a bottle.

Armorik Whisky

This was a surprise. A French Whisky that is peaty and smooth just like a Scotch Whiskey. This Whisky has some fire to it. My assistant has added some water and seems to be enjoying it more. i can see why. It allows the flavor to develop. It's smokey with some oak and something sweet. I bought it St. Malo and spent 25 Euros for this. Good luck trying to find it in the states.

Lagavulin 16 year

Holy Peaty!!!! This is an awesome Islay. Very peaty. The nose will overwhelm you with the peaty goodness. The flavor is PEAT and a smooth/smokey portion and then some fire deep down in your gut. Adding water helps reduce the smoke and peat flavor. I got this Scotch as a recommendation from my cousin. I got it at Big Red for 90 dollars (2009).

Glenfiddich 30 year

This Scotch is the oldest scotch that I own. I got this Scotch on a cruise in the Carri bean. This Scotch has more fire in it than I would have thought and Phil thinks this as well. With out water the Scotch is smooth with a slight sweetness and ends with some fire in your belly. This 30 year old Scotch is good. When we added water it definitely opens up this Scotch. It opens up the sweetness of maybe honey in the flavor. The nose on it is not as AC vaporish as a result of the water. When I bought this Scotch it was 250 dollars on the cruise and in the states it was 400 dollars

Glenkinchie 10 year

The Lowland Scotch that I've to date (05-23-09). It's got some fire to it that is for sure. it would be good to drink on a cold winters day. Adding a splash water opened up the nose on and flavor and nuetralize the AC vapor which allowed the flavor to come through. After adding the water I can tell there is a charcoal flavor that i can only say is Lowland. Phil isn't sure what to make of the flavor.

Glenmorangie The Nectar D' or

An awesome Scotch. It is definitely the Nectar of the Scotches. For this Scotch my assistant Phil has joined me. This Scotch is sweet and smooth. Very Little fire at all. I don't think any water is needed for this Scotch. Actually adding water I think hurts the flavor. Phil seconds this.

Ardbeg 10 year Islay Scotch

If you like the peatness of a bog you'll love this stuff. Peaty as hell and smooth as a babies bottom.
When i tasted it with my assistant Phil we discovered that it does it has a Earthy taste along with an iodine after taste. This bottle was given to me as a gift from my father in-law so im not sure about the cost.

Connemara Irish Whiskey Regular

Is awesome!! It's the only Irish Whiskey that I know of that is peated. If you see it buy it!!! I bought this in 2006 and spent 42 dollars. In 2009 I've seen it priced at 82 dollars. I wish I still had that bottle I bought in 2006.

Bushmills 16 year

A good Irish whiskey.
I spent 56 dollars on it in 2006. Not sure what it is priced now.

Bushmills 10 year

This is pretty good. I actually prefer it to the Bushmills 16 year. For those of you that do look at this I did not try the 400 Anniversary 10 year Bushmills

Bushmill Regular

Pretty much full of fire. You can definitely this a Prot Whiskey.

Irish Potcheen

All I have to say is lots of fire.

Red Breast

For those of you that want a little fire in your heart this would be the Irish Whiskey for you. This Whiskey is most perferred by my friends.

Jameson 18

This my friends and random people who might read this is a true gem. It is by far the best Irish Whiskey I have had. I love it so much that I only drink it on St. Patty's day.

Jameson 12 year

At first it started with Jameson and then it progressed into Jameson 12 year.

Oh Jameson...

This would be the reason for getting into my love for Irish Whiskeys! Jameson is a wonderful Irish Whiskey. First time I bought a bottle it was 16 dollars!!! Right now in 2009 it's 24 dollars.
