Irish Single Malt, 1991-2015, 54.9% – Daily Dram

While it looks like I’m publishing the same whiskey twice, this is actually a different cask, with a different ABV. Also, this is not a sherry cask like the previous post. It is, however, the same bottler, the same age … Continue reading

Irish Single Malt, 1991-2015, 54.6% – Daily Dram

Around 2015 there was a massive hype around older Irish single malts, twenty-ish years old for most of them, that has since more or less subsided. All of them were of unknown provenance, although with them being distilled around 1990 … Continue reading

Irish Single Malt Whiskey, 1991-2016, 49.5% – The Perfect Dram (TWA)
