Sláinte! 9 New Irish Whiskeys You’ll Love Long After St. Patrick’s Day

— Richard Carleton Hacker, Robb Report

”  This robust distillation pays homage to New York’s famed 69th Infantry Regiment, which was formed by Irish-Americans in 1849, and has fought in every major U.S. battle since then, including the Civil War, two World Wars and Afghanistan, and has marched at the head of New York City’s St. Patrick’s Day parade for over 100 years. As a suitable tribute that echoes the motto of the Fighting 69th (“Gentle when stroked, fierce when provoked”), this whiskey is a unique blend of three different distillates aged for three years in a combination of single- and double-char ex-bourbon barrels, along with a smaller number of Oloroso sherry casks for additional spice and a long, smooth finish. To make this whiskey even more enticing, a portion of every sale is donated to the non-profit 69th Regiment Historical Trust to aid its veterans.  “
