There are some other good Irish out there, but  on Jamison.  You ever have the Caskmates Edition aged in Stout barrels?  Good stuff!Neat is never wrong, but neither is a cube IMHO, especially if imbibing the higher octane barrel proof bourbons and ryes.....
Yup. I like the caskmates. There's nothing wrong with adding water or ice, in my opinion, especially when it's over 100 proof. I've never met a master distiller/ blender/ whiskey ambassador who said anything other then "the right way to drink this whiskey is the way you like to drink it". One guy told me the most popular whiskey drink in Spain was balvenie and ginger ale.

JTG, have you tried the caskmates ltd editions? Last year's was aged in Kelso pale barrels and this year's was done in capt. Lawrence. They were in and out pretty quick but if you hunt around you might still be able to find some of the capt Lawrence. I put away one of each for myself. Haven't really decided when I'm gonna open them.

No, haven't had those.  Captain Lawrence Liquid Gold is good stuff!  I'll keep my eye out for the Captain Lawrence one....

Mentioned this one before, but it's worth a repeat.  Crown Royal Northern Harvest Rye is the bottle that made the trip to Placid with me this weekend.  A 90% rye mash made with an unusually fruity Canadian rye grain that is planted in the fall, blanked by snow after sprouting, and matured through the spring and summer, is Royal Crown's first rye whiskey.  It earned Whiskey Bible's World Whiskey of the Year honors in 2016.  Smooth, with very fruity notes.  Really good stuff. Only rye I've tried that I like better is Whistle Pig 10 year old, made with a 100% rye mash.

Saint Patrick's Day requires nothing less than a fine Irish whiskey!

My hearts bleeding for ya

been into old fashions lately. for some reason they always taste good once the cold air hits.

that bottle reminds me of my trip to NY where we had Jame0 and pickle juice shots. Man were those things good!

I’ve enjoyed the stout edition of the Caskmates, yum!

Camp.....regular or orange bitters, muddle or no, and what are the only truely proper cherries for an old fashioned?   Time to see how well you’ve really gotten to know them!

Re: The Whiskey/Bourbon/Rye/Scotch Thread

Admitting to being a complete novice. When I make them at home I don't even put bitters in them  and when I've ordered them out nobody has given me choice of what kind.  

I like my fruit muddled, isn't it supposed to be???

No clue on the cherries ---- I grab whatever is on sale.

Please remember I'm normally a shot and a beer kinda guy  --- that's my kind of mixed drink

I'm open to any and all suggestions...
