- The Dead Rabbit Irish Whiskey – a blend of aged Irish single malt and grain whiskies, great for mixing, approachable, affordable, and comes in a damn fine looking bottle.
- Redbreast 15 Year Irish Whiskey – velvety and fruity, and has just enough oak to add character and flavor without getting too woody
- Jameson Irish Whiskey – The standard. Approachable, easy to drink, won’t break the bank.
- Powers Gold Label – heavier style of a blended Irish whiskey, hints of honey, golden raisins, and hay
- Teeling Single Grain Whiskey – phenomenal for mixed drinks and one of the best in its category
- Green Spot Irish Whiskey – one of the few single pot stilled Irish whiskeys, enjoy on the rocks for its smooth mellow taste with a hint of brininess
- Tullamore D.E.W. Irish Whiskey – This blended Irish whiskey is a perennial favorite for its smooth finish and versatile, citrus-forward palette that makes it a perfect pick for fruitier cocktails like a classic sour.
- Slane Irish Whiskey – extremely approachable and great for mixing. For a blend, it’s quite complex, having three different cask components (virgin, seasoned, and sherry casks).
- BONUS – BVM’s CGO recommends Tullamore Dew Caribbean Rum Finish – If you enjoy Irish whiskey, this is the best I’ve had. Incredibly smooth, sweet, matches perfectly with dark chocolate and orange zest. A rare find, so if you see it, grab a bottle (and one for me 😊 )
