Bushmills 16 year old single malt is pretty tasty when it comes to irish drams. It is triple wood finished if I recall. While not a fan of portwood finishes on whisky in general, it ain't too shabby.
Changing the subject a bit, I've just returned from a week in Lebanon. I was doing some work as a part of a team assisting Syrian refugees in Tyre, which is just a few miles from the Israeli border, in Hezbollah controlled territory. Yeah, call me crazy. I can't go into detail about our work beyond that we were a US Christian medical team doing volunteer work under a visa connecting us with a particular Lebanese evangelical church. The conditions were not very pleasant, as you can probably appreciate, and the local Imam was polite but very emphatic that we not attempt any proselytizing of the refugees, who were 90% Shia Muslim and mostly women and children. If you have any doubts that someone, either Asad or the "rebels" (fundamentalist wackos in the extreme), I have photographic evidence of the use of chemical weapons on these civilians. This is a humanitarian tragedy beginning to approach the proportions of the Holocaust. Lebanon has absorbed at least 1.1 million Syrian refugees, perhaps as many as 1.5 million and has a government that is on the verge of collapse from its own problems. Even Hezbollah, which I despise with my entire being, has realized that the largest percentage of those refugees are in its own back yard and beyond any possibility of receiving any meaningful assistance from them. So, they begrudgingly let even Christians come in to help as long as we don't do anything overt to challenge their iron fist. Lots of AK toters, for sure. We saw, triaged, and treated over 800 refugees while in country. That's a drop in the bucket, but every little bit helps those who receive it. And it showed them that Americans are not what their Imam and Hezbollah make us out to be.
Anyway, on our last day in country, we ventured up the coastline to Byblos and enjoyed a dinner at a well-regarded local seafood restaurant. I decided to try the local beer, a dark lager, Almaza, that was surprisingly tasty. Worked well with fried calamari.
