A Taste of the Irish (Whiskey)

How lovely to open my mail today and see a flyer for an Irish Whiskey tasting! For anyone interested, they'll get beer battered fish and chips and 9 whiskeys to taste all at The Claddagh on the northside. The whiskeys:

John Jameson Triple Distilled 40%
Bushmill's Triple Distilled 40%
Black Bush Triple Distilled Sherry Cask 40%
Bushmill's 10 Year Double Wood 40%
John Jameson 12 Year "1780" 40%
Red Breast 12 Year 40%
Bushmill's 16 Year Triple Wood Port Finish 40%
Bushmill's 21 Year Triple Wood Madiera Finish 40%
Midleton Very Rare 2004 40%

There look to be some interesting pours here. Since Arthur Black is conducting the tasting and I know very little about Irish whiskey's compared to Scottish ones, I think I'll enjoy this one. $25 for Kahnoisseur's Klub members; $28 otherwise. Make reservations through Kahn's -- 251-9463.
