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.
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.
