I see Americans are soon to have the opportunity of tasting "Michael Collins" whisky. There was a piece about this in the Irish News last week and a number of people were giving off about it, claiming that it was disrespectful to the "Big Fella". Personally I don't see the problem.
I can also exclusively reveal to balrog readers that I've actually sampled this whisky as a kind of "preview taste" and I can assure any potential buyers that its very good stuff! No mixers needed to dilute the taste! The memory of Michael Collins was also probably respected with a toast being given in the Corkman's honour. Irish charities will benefit in part from the sales so to Irish-American whisky fans - Your health to drink it!
