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

p.s. If you dont see one you’d like to suggest, write it in the comment section and I’ll see what I can do.
