John Hansell knows Irish whiskey

I refer you to a post on John Hansell's blog for a slew of Irish whiskey updates.

There is solid info on the changing composition of Jameson Rarest Vintage Reserve from year-to-year, and news on the availability of Powers, Redbreast and Paddy in the US (I know that's going to make a certain person happy!).

Note also the implication behind the arrival of Redbreast 15yo in the US. Even in Ireland, we thought we had seen the last of this. It was so well-received, however, that there is more on the way for all of us. As a 46%, non-chill filtered, pure pot still Irish whiskey it's unique, and a real showcase for the traditional Irish style.
