Every time we patronized a pub in Ireland, Jim asked his two favorite questions: What are best Irish whiskeys in Ireland? What is your favorite Whiskey? After two weeks of inquiry, we felt confident about selecting a few to take home with us.
The plan was to only purchase whiskeys we couldn’t buy in the U.S. From what we had been told, The Celtic Whiskey Shop was the place to go for every whiskey imaginable, so we headed out to Dawson Street to explore this highly recommended store.
Needless to say, we found Powers 13, Teachers Tears, Green Spot and a couple others that had been recommended to us and Jim was like a kid in a candy store. I had to put my foot down at the 2,000 euro bottle of Whiskey. I remain convinced that no bottle of Whiskey is worth that much. But it was pretty fun to marvel at it while we sipped some less expensive samples!
I have to say, Jim still talks about this place, so if you have chance, stop by and visit your dream whiskey!
