Thank you Swamppirate

I've had Balvenie and Glenmorangie. I find the Glen a little too fruity for my taste. My weekly goto is the Macallan 15.

Agreed.

I did go on their site and checked out the deal where you can purchase a barrel, they will customize the barrel with your company logo. Whatever that barrel yields (between 41 and 86 bottles, depending on the evaporation) they will then customize the bottles/labeling to also contain your company logo and you can pass them out as gifts to clients, family, etc.

They also ship you the customized barrel with the cases or booze.

I mainly drink the Islay malts...Laphroaig, Ardbeg, Lagavulin etc...more smoke, more peat. Another good and acceptable blend is the Compass Box series. Peatmonster and Flaming Heart is very good.

You ought to have a little taste a of WV. Moonshining is making a comeback. You can get straight corn hooch. But the fruit flavored brandies are the shit.

So has anyone tried the new Jameson Caskmates looks interesting, aged in Guinness barrels. I may have to forgo my Kentucky Spy Burbon this weekend and try it.

I will be at my favorite Irish bar (bar literally taken apart and flown back to here and rebuilt) tomorrow for St. Patrick's Day celebrating the Irish part of my DNA and will make a point to have a dram or two and try it out....

Ya gotta head to Costco if you like Larceny or Four Roses. They're selling the professional sized 1.75 bottles for $27.99!

If you haven't had Four Roses, it's the popular local bourbon, that the people who live in bourbon country drink.

Love Four Roses and it's one of my favorite bourbons but I only drink the Four Roses Small Batch.
