Hyde 6 No. 4 President’s Choice Rum Cask Finish

This past year (2018) I had lots and lots of plans. Finish my accounting schooling, find a new job in a new career space, figure out if the worms have gotten to my brains yet, and review enough Irish Whiskey to finally hit 100 total reviews. I’m happy to say I got most of that done, and I haven’t yet started to search out the… Continue reading Hyde 6 No. 4 President’s Choice Rum Cask Finish

Teeling 5 part review

Thanks to /u/cantbelieveyoureddit for being a great bartender. For awhile now I’ve been slowly collecting Teeling whiskies to eventually do a multi review. I have a decent amount of them. When planning for the trip, I had looked around at a lot of “Internet v.1.0” websites that directed me towards various whiskey bars in Dublin. The odd one mentioned Jameson Distillery, what with the new… Continue reading Teeling 5 part review
