Hi, my name's Greg Szczepkowski, I'm the person behind @bogstandarddram on Twitter where I talk about whiskey and other spirits. I came to Ireland in 2005 and I love it over here. Engineer by day, whiskey is my passion and I'm truly committed to taste a lot of different styles of this amazing spirit. I was delighted to be asked to curate my own Tasting Flight for Tiny Tipple. 
Please allow me to share some of the greatest, yet affordable and widely available whiskeys that, in my opinion, work well for people who are just beginning their journey and seasoned aficionados alike. Slainte!

Name: Quattro. Named after the classic Audi Quattro, an icon of the 80s, one of the coolest cars ever made. It also reminds me of the famous Vivaldi's violin work "Le Quattro Stagioni" or "Four Seasons", another famous classic. This leads me to the main stars of this pack, the four samples of Irish whiskeys, each displaying slightly different skills of people making them, from finishing to blending and balancing. 

I dare to say, the classic skills presented in a classic set.

1. Writer's Tears Double Oak:
This marriage of single malt and single pot still whiskeys shows extra dimension when it comes to spirit finishing. By using French oak casks from Cognac, the frutiness of Irish distillates is brought to a higher level. And if you are brandy drinker, you instantly recognize these signature sweet juicy oaky notes from the Cognac barrel.

2. Dingle Single Malt:
The west coast of Ireland is one of the most beautiful places in the world. Wild Atlantic Way requires Wild Atlantic Whiskey and the most recent expression from Dingle Distillery hits the stage big time! Balanced superbly, with strong PX cask influence of spice and chocolate notes, this single malt will keep you captivated sip after sip. 

3. Knappogue Castle 14:
Distillers in Ireland have a special talent when it comes to maturation and cask management. Knappogue 14 displays this in the most rewarding way: orchard fruit character balanced with wood spices from casks of the highest quality. I think this whiskey is underrated but we shall never ignore a triple distilled single malt of this quality sourced from a certain Northern Irish distillery.

4. Teeling Blackpitts:
"I don't like peaty whiskey" is a typical reaction of people who simply didn't taste enough of it! The first peated Teeling single malt, the Blackpits is a testament of how youthful Irish whiskey works well with peat, especially if finished in sweet Sauternes wine casks. The smoke is pleasant and not overwhelming, gradually fading to unravel a layer of tropical fruits beneath. If you want to challenge your peat-peeves, this whiskey is the best place to start.

I hope you enjoy this tasting flight!
