    Love Redbreast. Probably my 2nd favorite Irish pot still whiskey (Green Spot holding #1).

    Redbreast is great!  It's a shame the stopped making the 12 year cask strength.  They sell a Redbreast Cask Strength without an age statement.  It's still good, but not as good as the 12 year CS.  Middleton makes some great stuff.  I love the "spots" and really dig some of their Method and Madness releases.

    I love Makers. Think it’s better than Weller but I guess I should stop promoting that lol.

    Can't go wrong there!  46 CS is one of my favorites.

    My current list of must buy whiskies sits at 35 bottles and is growing rather than shrinking. I’ll let you guys know when my wife files for divorce lol.

    Ha, in my experience that number will only get bigger. The line between my "must" buy and "might as well" buy lists was blurred long ago. Thankfully still married. Haha.

    My next "would love to have" is a William LaRue Weller.  After that I don't want nothing crazy.

    I think I’ll go to Whiskey Fest one year so I can try this and the Pappys.

    Hahaha!
    My GF is always "Ugh...more whiskey?  Don't you have enough already?!?!"
    I then tell her "Until my whiskey cabinet is full, the answer is no".

    That said, even when it's full I'm still going to get more if I see something worth getting.

    The best part of her comments is that she really likes whiskey and has no problem whatsoever having a pour when I do.
    So...she bitches about it, then is all "Oooh...what are we having tonight?!?"  
    Mmmmhmmm.

    I've tried both and the LaRue was absolutely amazing.  The Pappy was really good too but can't justify the price.

    I’ve only tried GTS out of the big boys and I loved it. Old Rip too but I guess that’s one step down (still brilliant).

    Is that Averna an after dinner drink?  I have a buddy who drinks a shot of Fernet Branca every night after dinner for digestion.  I think they're similar.  We always bust his chops because he's 43 and acts like he's 83.

    Yea it s an after drink. I m usually good with one.

    Nice.  I remember drinking Sambuca shots when we were underage.  It falls in that same category of liquor.  Hilarious to think we were drinking that at 19 or 20 years old.

    sambuca is gross, I hate the taste of licorice.  But like you I also did shots of it back in the day. I'm not really into after dinner drinks but we have company coming over today so I figured I'd buy a bottle of something.  Grand mariner and 43 are also nasty.  
    Joe that's the first time I've bought 46 so I'm not sure if they changed the bottle.

    Here’s my bottle. My wife hand dipped it in KY this past summer. 

    Yep website says they changed it up.

    I haven’t had 12 in years. I’m curious to see what I think after a long amount of time.

    Stopped by Bevmo yesterday and saw this bottle on display so I bought it...even got $20 off making it a whopping $16!

    I liked it....I am not much of descriptor (that a word?) of taste so I will just say I liked it and drank too much yesterday :)


    So I'll just lie down and wait for the dream

    I have 3 bottles I'll never get to drinking because the damn things are so much money.  I'd love to raffle the damn things.  I'm doing store picks and things that can be off the shelf now.

    Have an Angels Envy store pick and it is wonderful!!!
