The West Cork Bog Oak is heftily-bodied for an Irish whiskey. Really weak on the nose.

Mouthful is subtlety smokey and fruity. Some sherry-like sweetness.

This is a nice whiskey, but a bit unbalanced.

The local Irish pub that I have previously posted about is closing this Monday.

No more pints of Guinness while listening to Flogging Molly. No more adventures into new Irish whiskies before work.

RIP.

Why is this even a thread? In Ireland, they're just called pubs. "Irish Pubs" in the US and other places are just "Irish Style Pubs".

A true Irish pub is really just a place where I can get drunk and punch someone in the mouth if they need a good mouth punching.

Fuck.

Has anyone else noticed most Irish bars are run by Australians? Maybe the Irish are too busy running Aussie bars. Who knows? Not I Rabbi!

I'll take it either way. At least they speak English. Meanwhile the nearby English pub (supposedly geared towards English speaking ex-pats) was filled with nothing but German speakers. It was super disappointing as I was hoping to seek out at least ONE watering hole that wasn't a German sausage fest.

But the last time I was there I was wearing an Irish soccer shirt and the bartender brought us over a round of Guinesses- assuming I was from Ireland I guess and "welcomed" me in English. Problem was, whoever placed the order for the first round didn't order Guiness but we slugged them anyway.
