    Whiskey

    I'm stuck working my way through a bottle of 12-year-old
    Glenfiddich (because the local supermarket only had Jameson
    in and I can't bear the taste of that).

    I like Midleton but that's too expensive for every day, so I'm
    looking for recommendations.

    What would you recommend me in the line of Irish whiskey
    that's reasonably-priced that's easy come by in the UK? I'm
    in London, if that helps.
    G’wan Tommy, ya good thing!

    We've been down this road before. Some, like me, recommend Red Breast. Those that like licking hospitals, as Scottie put it, like Connemara. Then there are those that like Bushmills. The less said about them the better.

      For the present: BlackBush - the St Emilion Grand Cru of Irish whiskey! (TWIB's recent endorsement just adds to the illicit pleasure of drinking protestant whiskey.)


      For the future: http://www.thedinglewhiskeydistillery.ie/ the whiskey of tomorrow.


      Since we are expected to speak well of the dead, let\'s knock them while they\'re still alive.

        Tesco do a mean own brand one, I recommend mixing it with
        their own brand vodka, with a dash of TK orange.

          Crested Ten. Delightful.
          If your religion is worth killing for, please start with yourself.

            I would consider Black Bush a Scottish Whisky (as opposed to whiskey).

              I clearly need a better supermarket [img]smileys/wink.gif[/img]

              I don't like smoky (learned that through tasting my way
              through a selection of Scottish malts on St David's Day) but
              smooth is good. I think I have heard of Red Breast before.

                Black Bush is quite good, I had forgotten about that.
                I need to frequent pubs with a better choice of whiskey
                (most around me seem to concentrate on the Scottish
                stuff).

                Cheers for the URL, I'll check it out.

                  Bushmills 25 year old single malt
                  If a man tried to take his time on earth and prove before he died what one man's life could be worth, I wonder what would happen to this world

                    Own-brand whiskey? Hmm, hadn't considered that. I tend to
                    drink my whiskey without mixer or ice, though, so unless it'd
                    stand up to that I may give it a miss.

                      red breast, is the bees knees.

                          Perhaps they were trying to tell you something.

                            That's a new one on me. May see if I can track it down in a
                            pub somewhere first, see if I like it.
