Dubliner Whiskey

Three samples of Dubliner Whiskey Beer Cask Series, part of the The Dublin Liberties Distillery Tweet Tasting, held Wednesday April 29.

Dublin is the capital of Ireland in the province of Leinster. Brewing beer in Ireland goes far back in history. And the coffee (for what I’ve heard) is just astonishing and not to compare anywhere else, this made me curious about the Limited Edition of these series.

Whiskey, beer and coffee. When thinking about the combination, it can give you a mind blowing effect. But after a glass or two it takes your breath away and it might give you the WOW effect.

I enjoyed this evening filled with laughter and 3 fantastic drams. However, I couldn’t discover any coffee notes in the O’Hara Stout Cast, that is a shame. The coffee notes could be found in the other two though. You have to get used to the labels, but the content is just fab! A soul that hits you!
