Bushmills Black Bush

  1. $29
This elegant, super-soft sipper is a blend of grain whiskey and malt whiskey that was finished in oloroso Sherry casks—the emphasis on the latter. The Sherry influence shows in the baked apple and dried apricot flavors that round into caramel and butterscotch tones on the finish.  — K.N.  (3/1/2014)

Wonderful aromas of smoked trout, lead pencil, ink, dried fruit, beeswax, toasted Brazil nut and parchment.

  1. $249
Intended as a tribute to Midleton Master Distiller Barry Crockett, this delicate, silky whiskey has a golden hue and a lovely fresh-apple scent. On the palate, apple and ripe pear meld with butterscotch and a touch of banana on the long finish. Meant for savoring straight up.  — K.N.  (3/1/2014)

Jameson 18 Years Old Limited Reserve

  1. $85
As “the master blender’s special selection of very old Jameson Irish Whiskey,” this bottling represents. Rich honey color, tropical fruit scent with a touch of thick caramel. The flavors are bright and vibrant—lychee, banana, orange peel, tempered by a wash of honey—and the finish is intriguing and dry with nuances of white chocolate, banana, leather and nutmeg…  — K.N.  (3/1/2012)

Slieve Foy 8 year old Irish Single Malt Whiskey

  1. $45
This was a pleasant surprise: soft, fresh, delicate and lovely. It has a light straw color and is perfumed with pineapples and tropical fruit. The slightly fruity flavor finishes with a wispy smokiness, and lingers on.  — K.N.  (3/1/2011)
