I have no idea, but I actually enjoy the North South...I would enjoy a glass of Jameson pictured in your photo as well! I just tried googling and nothing....for what it's worth, I don't like Kirkland, nor I do I like Napa cabs so maybe my wine palate is not up to snuff. Hope the east west is on our April cruise I would love to know what it's all about!

I've had both.  It was on the same ship but different trips.  I'm not sure if both were available on the same voyage.  In all honesty, I really couldn't tell any difference between them.  Maybe I could if I tasted them side by side.  They were both nice red blends leaning toward a cabernet flavor.

You can't 'don't like Kirkland', that's far too general a statement.

 

Costco offers dozens and dozens of option within the Kirkland' label.

all I care about is they have Malbec and and a Red Blend. There are very few wines I will not drink and I doubt any of them will appear on a cruise ship. Wine drinker and lover: you bet: wine expert: HELL no.

According to the staff in Cagney's on our recent Jade cruise, they are exactly the same. One is just newer than the other. My husband enjoyed both and could not tell the difference between the two.

Do Kirkland brand cheese go well with those Kirkland brand wines? 🤔

I really like the North South red blend - it's my go-to wine with dinner.

It's also the free bottle if you choose.  I did and gave it to my son-in-law, a frequent wine drinker.  He said, "not bad".   I agree.

I stand corrected....I have yet to meet a Kirkland red that I like. Thanks for the info!
