70cl / 46% - A special bottling to commemorate the 400th anniversary of the license to distil aqua vitae in Antrim originally granted in 1608 to Sir Thomas Phillips. Bushmills 1608 was named Best Irish Blended Whiskey (No Age Statement) at the World Whiskies Awards in both 2008 and 2012.
70cl / 40% - A rich, dark, Irish blend, Black Bush contains a high proportion of triple-distilled single malt, aged in Oloroso sherry casks for around 8-10 years before marriage with the grain. Picked up the top prize in its category at the World Whisky Awards 2010.
70cl / 40% - Hugely popular Irish blend, renowned for its affinity with ginger ale. The default springboard into the fascinating world of Irish whiskey, Jameson's quality has improved massively in the last 10-15 years and it's one of Jim Murray's favourites, with 95 points in the Whisky Bible 2013.
70cl / 46% - Introduced by Irish Distillers in 2011 as part of the relaunched range of pot still whiskies, The Barry Crockett Legacy is named for the Midleton master distiller and combines bourbon cask matured whisky with some from a new American oak barrel. A great entry into the Midleton line-up which has been showered with awards since it first appeared on the horizon.
70cl / 43% - A single malt Irish whiskey produced for Wild Geese that's picked up a few accolades since 2010, including Best Non-Age Irish Malt in the World Whisky Awards 2011 and 94 points from the Ultimate Beverage Challenge.
70cl / 46% - A noticeably darker colour for this special sherry-finished Tyrconnell single malt from the Cooley distillery. Bottled at the ideal strength of 46%, this picked up a well-deserved gong at the World Whisky Awards 2010.
70cl / 43% - A massive step up in quality from the standard Hakushu 12 yrs, this 18yo is amazingly well-defined (as we've come to expect from Japanese whisky) with deliciously rounded fruit and cereal flavours, at times surprisingly reminiscent of the finest Irish potstill whisky (eg Redbreast 15yo).
50cl / 61.5% - A punchy bottling of the infamous Irish moonshine known as Poitin(Poteen), put together by the folks of the Teeling Whisky Company. A blend of double-distilled malt spirit and triple distilled maize spirit - classic Irish whiskey new make available to try before it's touched a barrel.
70cl / 43% / Distillery Bottling - A very interesting dram, the only Speysider to be triple-distilled like a Lowland malt or Irish whiskey, but with a lot more body and character than either of those styles. Impressive stuff.
70cl / 40% - The superlative Jameson 18yo has long been considered one of the brightest stars of the range. This blend of two potstill whiskies and a single grain is matured in Oloroso sherry casks and finished in bourbon wood for 6 months for a brilliantly complex potstill character.
70cl / 46% - Another special new Tyrconnell 10 year-old, this time finished in ex-Madeira casks. The last bottling of this received 95 points and won Irish Whiskey of the Year in Jim Murray's Whisky Bible 2008.
70cl / 46% - The ne plus ultra from Jameson, this has been blended with some of the oldest and rarest whiskeys from Jameson's maturing stock - one of which was a pot-still whiskey matured in a port pipe, which adds an extra fruitiness to the final assemblage. More than justifies the price tag - this is one of the greatest Irish whiskies ever bottled, we feel.
100cl / 40% - A litre bottle of Power's Gold Label, one of the biggest selling and oldest whisky brands in Ireland.
100cl / 40% - A blended Irish whiskey, Clontarf Classic was originally a 100% grain whiskey from Cooley, but these days the product has a very small amount of malt in it, with the grain supplied by Irish Distillers (top inside info from Jim Murray's Whisky bible there - JM gives it 86 points).
70cl / 40% - The Irishman Single Malt is triple distilled and aged in a combination of bourbon and oloroso sherry casks, resulting in a complex whisky.
70cl / 46% - Teeling's single malt contains whiskies aged for up to 23 years, which have been matured in a range of wine casks: sherry, port, Madeira, white Burgundy and Cabernet Sauvignon. A rich and spicy whiskey.
70cl / 40% / Distillery Bottling - A ceramic crock containing tasty 8 year old Irish Single Malt whisky, produced by the folks at Cooley and bottled under the old Locke's label.
70cl / 40% - A gift pack containing a bottle of award-winning Jameson and a pair of glasses to share it from. Jameson's quality has improved massively in the last 10-15 years and it's one of Jim Murray's favourites, with 95 points in the Whisky Bible 2015.
70cl / 40% / Distillery Bottling - A five-year-old blended whisky released by the recently formed Belfast Distillery Company. Made using whiskies distilled at Cooley (until the BDC's Crumlin Road Gaol is up and running), this is a surprisingly complex whisky for its age.
