Was only asking the boys to simmer down. It was an autocorrect error followed by an amusing riposte. Then the pair of them went for it. I've not tried Irish whiskey but have enjoyed some of the American stuff, for what it's worth.

An irish whiskey won malt of the year at the world whisky awards this year FWIW.

Kind of depends on your budget. Glengoyne 12 is around the £40 mark and is very easy to drink. 

Best pound for pound whisky in my opinion. Its lovely and so affordable.

Dalmore 12 is my go to dram, lovely and reasonable about the £40 mark. Getting a bit older and found my tastes moving from big peaty numbers ,Lagavulin used to be my number one, to the more sherried whiskies. Still wouldn't say no to a Lagavulin, ever.

Here’s a photo of the three bottles I’ve got on the go at present. I like Eagle Rare, Woodford Reserve, Hudson Bay, Tin Cup, but old Jimbo’ is my absolute favourite.... One block of ice, real Coke, no Pepsi shite accepted. (Sits back and awaits scorn to be poured upon his heathen head.) 😀

@Moomintroll I know you like calling for people to be binned. THIS is a proper reason.

Most people grow out of sugary drinks when they reach adulthood.

I quite like red stag 

That Jim Beam single barrel (middle of the three), is a thing of beauty. The double-oaked is the smoothest of the three, and the Black is a good, solid go-to bourbon. My wife prefers Jim Beam White - at 40% it’s more to her taste. We go to the USA two or three times a year, have done so since 1997... explains why (for our sins) we became bourbon, and NFL fans.

Dont let them tell you different, Jim Beam is excellent at providing barrels for people that actually know how to make whisky.

Had a Caol Ila 7 year old (one of the Carn Mor bottles) on Saturday. It was absolutely terrific.

Just ordered a Kilchoman Machair bay. Anybody any thoughts on this whisky ??
Great choice. The lady at the front desk remembered my son's name a year apart. Tells you nothing about what the drink tastes like, but a great deal about the people who work there.

I have generally found their whisky to be excellent for its age. Still a relatively new distillery, but their range is excellent value.

I've got a bottle on its last legs and I'll be sorry to see it go. A beautifully smokey dram. I loved it.
