Review –

Before we get into the review of this really great whiskey, I’d like to take a small side route.  As of yesterday, when I posted the Woodford Reserve Double Oaked review, I realized that I am 1 week from the 6-month milestone for WWT, so I figured I’d celebrate it with Whiskey Week.  One whiskey per day, for 7 days.  Sounds like fun, so lets get down to brass tacks here.

St Paddy’s Day is Coming!


 

So being the half-Irish mongrel that I am, I tend to get giddy when St. Paddy’s comes around.  I feel like my beard gets a little more red in it than usual, and my skin a little more pale.  Also, this will be WWT’s first St. Paddy’s so I figured I might as well do something a little bit special for the Irish Wine lovers in all of us.  I’ve decided to take a poll that will determine the next bottle of whiskey I buy, and if I get some votes I will buy the most voted for and have one hell of an evening.  I’m only going to list bottles that I dont currently own, and they will range in price, but feel free to vote for whichever whiskey makes your Irish tingle.  Enjoy!

Slainte,

Chuck
