5 Irish whiskies to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day 2019

There’s no better way to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day than with a toast of true Irish whiskey. With its signature smoothness, sweetness, and easy drinkability, you can see why the Irish style is the fastest growing in the whiskey market.

For your celebration, try one of these festive Irish whiskey options:

Green Spot

A favorite of whiskey critics, Green Spot has an aroma and taste of orchard apples and toasted wood with a sprinkling of clove. It is full bodied while balancing the fruity sweetness and toasted oak spiciness into a nicely malted finish with accents of vanilla.

Redbreast 12

Redbreast is a very special single pot still whiskey that is matured for a minimum of twelve years in sherry casks and bourbon barrels. It is robust, assertive, and highly praised among whiskey connoisseurs. Its nose is nutty and rich with notes of dried peels and spice. Its palate exhibits essences of spice and freshly cut citrus fruit with hints of marzipan and sherry. Redbreast has a delightfully long finish full of creamy custard and spice.

Teeling Small Batch

This small batch bottling consists of hand selected casks which are given further maturation in ex-rum barrels imparting extra character and smooth flavor unique to Irish whiskey. Bottling at 46% ABV with no chill filtration.

Bushmills Red Bush

This variant is a bourbon barrel-aged specialty. Matured in American White Oak, this blend of malt and fine grain whiskeys is triple distilled for smoothness and aged for a minimum of four years. Its taste offers sweet, nutty vanilla notes, with just a touch of bourbon.

Jameson Stout Caskmates

Emerging from a conversation between their head distiller and the head brewer of Cork’s Franciscan Well Brewery, Jameson Caskmates is finished in stout-seasoned whiskey casks. While their triple-distilled smoothness is very much intact, notes of cocoa, coffee and butterscotch confirm the stout influence in the classic Irish whiskey.

You can find these, as well as many other types of celebratory whiskey, at large, local independent spirit retailers like Wyatt’s Wet Goods, who offers you superior choice and selection for all your drinking desires.
