The drinks at Danny Doolans Irish Bar 

The beverage options consist of all you favourite beers and wines. They also feature a rare and extensive list of whiskeys from Ireland, Scotland, and other parts of the world. This list of whiskeys includes the Ardbeg Arigh Nam Beist which is a whiskey that was taken from very rare barrels that were laid down in 1990, the Ardbeg Galileo which is made from casks that were distilled in 1999.

Some also spent their full maturation period in casks that previously stored Marsala wine, and the Ardbeg Alligator which was named after the high level of char on the inside of some of the casks that were used for maturation which makes them appear like the skin of an crocodile.
