    As far as tier 2 whiskys go, you cant beat Buffalo Trace and Willet bourbons. Tasty and both around $30. Dont care for Irish whiskeys, too sweet imo.

    Probably, but once you spend on quality... damn it's hard to drop. i tasted a lot of cheap stuff and Buchanans and Old Parr (VERY common in my region) and once i drank JW green... JAYZUS. I can't imagine the "elissir" JW blue is (typo intended)

    not true, Makers, Bulliet bourbon and jeffersons are close to that price and are pretty good. I only drink bourbon and rye so I can't vouch for Irish whiskeys of this price. had jameson's with ginger ale a month ago. it was good but bourbon is superior .

    I can think of several Bottled in Bond American whiskeys at that price point that could easily fetch more.

    The real sad part is that his whiskey is blended trash, yet he had the audacity to call out a fan for drinking Jack Daniels.

    It's the 16YO for 200th anniversary, exclusive for travel retail.

    You can look it up on whisky auction sites, it has the same label with "slante" on it, which I believe it's gaelic.

    Perhaps we should ask Conor, he's fluent in that stuff.

    I can't really stomach Irish whisky...or American...or Canadian...or blended whiskies. I'm not really a fan of most single-malts, outside of the really peaty varieties.

    Respect recognizes respect

    Notice I pretty much only listed heavily peated whiskies? Those are about the only ones I like...Speysides and Highlands are too "delicate" for my palate. I could have thrown in some Bunnahabbain and Bruickladdich, but that would have been wasted on most.

    “notes of turpentine interlaced with the musk from a crowded, poorly-maintained Turkish bathhouse sauna.”

    “I don’t even drink and am a complete lightweight, but after four shots, I can’t even feel anything from this stuff. It’s as weak as McGregor’s take-down defense. I’m gonna have another! What’s the difference?”

    Might not satisfy the snobs, but it is not complete shit for 30 bucks.

    You know what's weird, before the fight I was so swept up in the Conor hype I considered ordering a bottle, but since Conor lost I have no interest in even tasting this shit.

    Cool me fickle but I'd feel embarrassed ordering that shit at the bar now.
