- And welcome to the only site on the World Wide
Web that tells it like it is.
- Irish whiskey is one of the World's great secrets
and I am here to be honest and to spread the gospel.
- There will be no bullshit, no plugs and no second
hand opinions... This site is here to cut through the
marketing crap and give you honest advice, good
information and up to the minute news and whiskey reviews.
- I don't work in the drinks industry and every
bottle I review has been bought with my own hard earned
cash. So when I recommend something, you know that I have
- This fluttering tricolour is my stamp of
quality. It says that the whiskey in question is
something special. Likewise if I slate a product it is
only to save you the pain of buying it.
- Altough my facts are correct, my opinions are
just that. So feel free to disagree... Just reach beyond
that dusty bottle of Jameson and open your mind.
Note: Most of the whiskies mentioned in these pages
can be bought and shipped to you. E-mail for details.

- This is the official web site of the Counry Antrim
distillery. Nice graphics and an easy lay out make this a
- Want to buy whiskey on-line? Then this is
a good place to start. They specialise in Irish and have
a huge range.
- The website of Ireland's only independent distillery
sells the party line, and that's about it. However if you
live outside the Republic of Ireland, sign the guest book
and they will send you a miniature free of charge! You
will soon be able to buy Cooley whiskies on-line and
direct from the distillery, they'll be at http://www.whisk-e.com
and I'll let you know more when I get it.
- The Jameson site is all you get from Irish Distillers, no
Power's no Paddy... It is very clever and very flash.
However as it promotes lifesyle "what's the rush..."
rather than saying anything about whiskey, you leave none
the wiser. Clearly designed by a tee-toatler.
- The history of Tullamore Dew is well told, but the old
establishment corporate-speak is all a little predictable
ie, Irish Whiskey has to be triple
- The official site of "Whisky" magazine is
varied, interesting but a little too "Scotch"
heavy. However it's a good read and I recommend it and
the mag most highly.

and that the entire site should be upgraded. This will all happen
later in August, in the mean time please take this chance to
share your views, or just say hello!
