One of my favorite Irish whiskies has been Tullamore Dew. I prefer it to Jamieson's, Bushmill's and other readily available Irish blends. Recently I discovered Tullamore Dew 10-year old Single Malt; far and away the best Irish whisky I've come across.

..Costing me too. I picked up a bottle of Caol Ila 12 year, and am trying to get used to a very good (according to numerous reviews and reports) Islay malt. Islays wil grow on me I think.

Soon you too shall learn to embrace the peat.
 
I really enjoy the peat/smoke part - it is the iodine/antiseptic part that trips me up. No matter what, it is amazing that whiskies an be so varied and complex. ..Here's to figuring them out.
 
i realize this thread is more about Sippin Wiskey, but I've been enjoying some specialty beers that have a whiskey, rum or burbon influence.

tonight i'm enjoying some Widmer Bros Barrel aged BRRRurbon

Barrel Aged Brrrbon '11 is a smooth winter warmer and the first release as part of the Alchemy Project. Following the initial brewing process of Brrr, the beer was given a fresh charge of hops during secondary fermentation and then put into Kentucky Bourbon barrels and aged for four months. After barrel aging, the beer was allowed a tertiary fermentation for final conditioning before release.

very different, definately a decent winter beer, this goes along the style of the Rogue John John Beers. I've only found them at the Issaquah Brewhouse.
they are a treat if you haven't tried them. The John John Dead Guy is aged in Whiskey Barrels and the John John Hazlenut is a brown ale set in Rum Barrels, this is probably one of my favorite seasonals.Their spring/summer beer is the Juniper Ale which is bright with Juniper Berries and finished in Gin Casks.

Hell...the key to professional drinking is to 'drink cheap'. After the first couple of shots, none of you could tell the difference anyway!
