I am not a big Whiskey drinker but since a friend of ours introduced us to "Connemara – Peated Single Malt" Irish Whiskey I found my new favorite liquor. This is the best tasting whiskey I have tried. You can taste the smoky barrel, honey and if you take big sip you can even see the green hills of Ireland before you.

So I bought a bottle and put it one in our moving boxes, as a treat for us when they arrive here.

2 weeks late, the boxes are finally here and as you can see the bottle is cracked open. Cheers!

What is your favorite Whiskey – talk about it on the Ireland Forum.

    Greetings from America! My mom lives in Milltown, County Kerry. I was fortunate enough to spend a week there this past February. Wow is it beautiful. I miss the Kerry Mountains. If I could find work over there I’d move out of this country in a heartbeat!

    it’s been a long time since i drank any of that old foxy water, tis bad for the head, and the liver,kidneys, brain, pancreas, etc etc. it’s good for starting the fire though, but a bit pricey. By the way, i presume ‘Peated’ means they strain it through a sod of turf, mmmmm peaty!

    On one of my trips to Ireland I stayed in Ballina. The folks at my bed and breakfast told me of a pub that had great music, so I went one night. Sorry to find out that it was American country music! But…I had recalled seeing a sign in a pub window in the city that advertised that there was to be a celebration with music honoring the mayor of a neighboring town. I searched for the pub, found it, and what a time. It was packed and festive and some of the best Irish music ever. There were no other Americans or other tourists in there. Since then, Ballina (which I found out I was pronouncing wrong) has a special place in my Irish/America heart.

    You must study the meaning of Naker, Mucker, or Baller???

    A Naker = A non-travel type whom burgles, steals, destroys, yobs GAA (enough there)
    A Mucker = A GAA type who loves swoon RTE rubbish and talks nonsense
    A Baller = A GAA religious politico type who thinks its not a Naker, or a Mucker, or just a waste of oxygen, but loves talking rubbish about hurling, football, politics, religion and other abject forms of nonsense that Nakers, Muckers, love discussing anyway
    A Blender= A mix of Naker, Mucker, Baller and middle-class dross

    What do they all have in common?

    1. They do not know there are 211 countries on the planet? [ask them!]
    2. They cannot speak english properly [They cannot speak any foreign language fluently]
    3. They love ignorance
