Uisce Beatha Real Irish Whiskey, 40%

Price: $29 Issue: Winter 2014 Reviewer: Jonny McCormick

This is straightforward, straight shootin' Irish whiskey. Creamy country fudge, toasted muffins, glorious sweet malt, waxed lemons, and delicate spices on the first sniff. It's light in the mouth, with lemon curd, juicy caramels, and vanilla custard tarts: simply bursting with warmth. It concludes with spices twinkling on a malt theme. Have your Irish whiskey experiences only been with the big names? Go live a little. You ought to get this: sugar and spice and all things nice.
