The Leprechauns have taken over Mora’s and are hosting a FREE St. Patrick’s Day tasting with some of our finest Irish whiskys!
First up is Green Spot Single Pot Irish Whisky
. (Say that ten times fast after a few fingers’ worth!) This whisky has won a whole slew of industry awards, and for good reason. Its nose has bright, aromatic oils with a background of toasted wood. The palate is full and spicy, with bright green apple sharpened by a hint of cloves and toasted oak. The finish is long and full of spices and barley.
If you’re a Jameson fan, you can’t miss out on the Jameson Black Barrel Reserve
. It’s definitely recognizable as a Jameson whisky, but the flavors are deeper, richer, and more concentrated thanks to the toasted & charred bourbon barrels in which the whisky ages.
The Redbreast Single Malt Irish Whisky
won a WHOPPING 96 points from Jim Murray, and the Gold Medal from the World Whiskies awards. Aromatic and warm, it’s classically gorgeous. Ginger, nutmeg, honey, cinnamon, and lemon zest dance down your palate, with each sip feeling like being embraced in a warm, fuzzy hug. A blast of pepper cuts through and leads to a warm, licorice finish.
Next, The “Writers’ Tears” whisky is sweet and light, like the tears of James Joyce as he labored over the umpteenth draft of “Ulysses.” The nose has hints of apple, vanilla, and honey with a gently spiced, butterscotch flavor. A perfect introductory whisky for those new to the spirit!
Finally, we have a delicious Welsh whisky to round out the tasting. Penderyn Madeira Aur Cymru
is lush and creamy. Aromas of grape jelly and cream start it off, and lend themselves to sweet, toasty baking spice flavors. Sweet and delicious!
