Redbreast 15yr old again and a whiskey festival for Dublin?

I was recently lamenting the disappearance of Redbreast 15 year old from the whiskey shops but a comment to that post (source unknown, though I can make a good guess) reveals that another 400 bottles are due for imminent release. I'll have to get my name on a bottle or two of that.

I also wrote an observation on the conspicuous lack of whiskey festivals around these parts. That attracted a comment too, presumably from the same source, telling me that a festival is slated for Dublin in August 2008.

Thank you, mysterious commenter, for all the great news! OK, now I'm wishing for the Minister for Finance to remove excise duty from spirits in the forthcoming budget...
