I'll start by saying I don't know a whole lot about Irish Whiskey, but a friend of mine gave me a bottle of Midleton 2009 "Very Rare". I enjoy it off and on, and I'd like to try and find something similar to it.
I suspect that it's probably $100+ per bottle, I'd like to find something 1/3rd that price that might be worth trying. Any suggestions? I have had a few bottles of the standard bushmills original, it was ok. Had a bottle of Redbrest 12, it was ok as well, but something about it I wasn't to keen on.
