Situational Irony (Drew Donohue)
I drink, to the buried that repose around us, And I to your long life.
Dramatic Irony (Chris Palmer)
Enough, the cough is a mere nothing; it will not kill me. I shall not die of a cough.
Verbal Irony (Matt Habib)
We will go back, your health is precious.
Montresor drinks to Fortunato's long life, even though he knows that he is about to kill him. So, this is basically the complete opposite of what he was intending, and is situational irony.
When Fortunato says that a cough will not kill him, it is dramatic irony because the audience and Montresor know that Fortunato will not be killed by the cough, but by Montresor.
Montresor knows that he will eventually kill Fortunato, and ironically says that his health is precious. Montresor does this so that he could lull Fortunato into a false sense of security before he kills him.
