Recently I've had the opportunity to drink a few Irish whiskies. It had been a while since I've tasted the likes of Magilligan, The Tyrconell and Knappogue Castle. I promised myself to restock my bar with some of these old Irish acquaintances.
Often in my choice of whisky I opt for the ones I haven't tasted yet. With good reason, because learning about whisky is always expanding your taste experience. But the drive for the next taste experience may have you forget revisiting the ones that you love, and use for reference.
So, if you, like me, have a limited budget for your bar, don't forget to reserve a place for the whiskies that already have a place in your palate.
