Our whiskey guides have picked the best Irish whiskeys they know your dad will enjoy. We also included where to buy them online and in-store.  So read on to see what whiskeys we picked for our Father’s Day Whiskey Buying Guide.


Dublin Whiskey Tours - Teeling Small Batch

Teeling Small Batch –  €38.99 – This is our first pick and the least expensive, but don’t let the price fool you – this is a great introduction to Irish whiskey. A first release for the Teeling Whiskey Company. This is a blend of Irish grain and malt whiskeys that have been married in rum casks before bottling at 46%.

Dublin Whiskey Tours - Writers Tears

Writers Tears Red Head€48.99 – A superb single malt from Walsh Distillery. This has been matured in Oloroso Sherry casks, which have added some richness and depth as well as a slightly reddish tinge.

Dublin Whiskey Tours - Powers John's Lane

Powers John’s Lane –  €63.99 – It is comprised mostly of a robust, heavy pot still spirit and is predominantly aged in ex-bourbon casks with a little sherry cask ageing. Intended to faithfully recreate the old style of whiskey once made in Dublin, it’s one that Irish whiskey lovers keeping coming back to.  

Dublin Whiskey Tours - Green Spot

Green Spot Léoville Barton€69.99 – A special edition of the famous Green Spot for only €10 more than the standard bottling. Initially matured in traditional sherry and bourbon casks, Green Spot Chateau Leoville Barton was then finished in Bordeaux
wine casks, adding an exciting new dimension to this Single Pot Still Irish Whiskey – already renowned for its excellent quality.

Dublin Whiskey Tours - Redbreast 21 year old

Redbreast 21 Year Old€183.99 – A simply fantastic single pot still Irish whiskey that has been incredibly well received since its release. This is drawn from similar casks types to the 12 and 15 year old bottlings but also from some refill casks.
