Up in Dublin to meet friends & family was a different style of trip to my Poitín Now adventures of last weekend.
I did however manage a quick visit to the Celtic Whiskey Shop to replenish my miniatures.
I do love miniatures.
When you have shelves groaning with around 50 opened bottles of varying spirits – not to mention a similar number waiting to be uncorked – constantly buying more is no longer an option.
There’s also the squeeze on spending by having to fork out increasing amounts for basics – let alone the luxury of drink – so miniatures it is!
There were 3 untried expressions that made my basket.
Nardini Grappa Riserva – to further explore my Grappa fascination.
Cognac Park 10yo Mizunara Cask – Mizunara seems to be all the rage right now – so why can’t Cognac get in on the act?
Fercullen Falls Whiskey – Powerscourt’s latest core release blend.
Expect a monologue on each in due course!
