Whisky Week 9th-14th May 2011
As a build up to Whisky Live Dublin 2011, we are putting together a "Whisky Week", what we would like to know is what would you like to see in whisky week. Would it be tastings, whisky dinners or distillery visits. Were keen to get as much feed back as possible as to what you want, should it be restricted to Dublin or should we tour it around the country? Let us know.
Whisky Live Dublin 2011
Its great to see that this event is being well received and the great news is there will be up to 9 master classes available allowing everyone a chance to sample some very special whiskeys. It might be 4 months away but already there is a great buzz in the industry with some very big whisky names confirming their attendance.
Whisky of the Week
My whisky of the week is twitted (follow whiskeyireland) every friday and it is a dram that i have sampled in the previous 2 weeks. Last friday it was the Tryconnell 10 year old Madeira Finish. I have long been a fan of this whiskey and it was even Jim Murray's Irish Whiskey of the year a couple of years back. Im always dubious about "finishes" but Cooley have hit the nail on the head with this. Its currently on special offer in the Celtic Whiskey Shop, Dawson St, Dublin 2 (was €69.99 now €59.99)
