Thanks Tim & Thanks Kildare's
So this week I found myself back in Central Pennsylvania and inevitably made my way to Kildare's Irish Pub, where Tuesday night after a business dinner elsewhere, I ordered a Michael Collins Irish Whiskey, straight, no ice. It was delicious and smooth! Today, before returning my rental car and heading to the airport, I stopped by again since I had a spare 45 minutes. I ordered a Bushmills straight, and was pleasantly surprised at how smooth and flavorful it was.
Irish whiskey definitely has its strong positive points. I've not found the negative ones yeet, other than "doesn't mix well with lemonade" - but then again I've not taken more than 2 glasses at one sitting yet. Perhaps if I over-indulged, the negative effects would manifest themselves readily.
So I ask you, the readers of JustJoeP (about 100 a day), what's your favorite Irish Whiskey? Are there any brands "to be avoided under all circumstances"?
And Thanks Tim, for the introduction to a delightful spirit!
