My grandfather is turning 70 next weekend and I wanted to get him something special. He is a fine Irish man how worked on the railroads for about 30 years before he retired. He is a Whiskey lover and I want to get him some of the best Irish or just the best whiskey I can find for under $50. Now I don't know much about whisky and what is the best so if anyone knows anything it would help. Thanks

Here's a site that I like to call home [url]www.scotchwhisky.net[/url] Now, he's probably not into Scotch. Fair enough, I won't sit in judgement. But you can use the site's search function with the word "Irish," and there yer'll be. (edited because I was salivating far too much.)

The man is 70, he's worked his ass off for 30 years on a railroad, and your looking for a bottle of whisky "under 50 bucks" ??????

A bottle of Jameson 1780 12 year-old Irish whiskey will do just fine.

Well if you're looking for scotch, Glenlivet 18 year old scotch is some good stuff. But if you're looking for some good old fashioned Irish whiskey, I HIGHLY recommend Tullamore Dew. This stuff is absolutely the smoothest whiskey that's ever crossed my lips. It's only about $25.00 a bottle, and isn't even single malt. But it is some incredible stuff.

what does he like???? buy the man what he drinks. whiskey is personal and buying by price is a sure way to disappoint him.

I gave a retiring friend of the family a very expensive bottle of congac. Having known him since I was a kid his reply was typical; Ah she's a fine bottle but 2 of her cheaper sisters would have made me just as happy. [:)>]

Like 308wood said, get the man what he drinks. And get him a little something special to go along with it, like a redhead [:D]

I don't know where we are going and if they have any good drinks there. I'll just tell all of you out there this man will drink anything. I have seen him down a pitcher of Guinness in about 3 mins with no problem (No $hit) He is hard corps the man smokes camel unfiltered I just wish I could do more for him do to that he thinks the world of me and he is the only grandfather I have known. Do to me not having any money right now I'm trying to do the best I can.

I think the best Irish whiskey , nay the best wiskey in the world is Tyrconnell. If you have never had it , it's a treat.
