As bourbon continues to explode in the US, Irish Whiskey is seeing a similar renaissance in its home country, and beyond. The older brother of the famous Green Spot, Yellow Spot Whiskey might not have the same reputation due to scarcity, but it's easily as good, if not better than it's world renowned sibling. This single pot still whiskey was matured in three different types of casks: American Bourbon, Spanish Sherry butts, and Spanish Malaga casks. Aged for 12 years, and sourced from Midleton Distilleries, this fruity, balanced whiskey is nothing short of exceptional, and about to hit US shores for the first time ever.
The jackalope, a mythical creature that is said to be a cross between a jack rabbit and an antelope with horns, is an example of a unique, yet mythical blend. Bourye from High West Distilling is a blend of equal interest, but is very real and available again after disappearing for years. Bourye is a blend of 9-year-old straight bourbon, 10-year-old straight rye whiskey, and 16-year-old straight rye whiskey. The resulting dram showcases some bold rye spice along with traditional sweet bourbon flavors like molasses and caramel. Hunt some down before it's as rare as a jackalope again.
