I shall celebrate my newly minted 'bourbon barrel' status on this forum by finishing off my bottle of Booker's Small Batch. It pairs well with an Oh Henry! chocolate bar.

Been on holliers for the last 2 weeks and stayed clear of the tinker net ;-)

Anyway managed to clear a few more low levelers.

Michael Collins (Old tall battle) which was actually very enjoyable.
Aberlour 12yo Single Malt
a Makers Mark
a regular Powers.
and a sadly missed William L Weller all of 61.3% abv :o

No I did not go on a binge there was probably only 2 measures in all of these except the Michael Collins which had circa 20cls left.

I am now below 40 opened bottles which is wonderful as my open stock from a few years back was ridiculous.

I'll soon be a normal whiskey drinker ;-)

Jameson Caskmates. I only had a little left so didn't want to risk it spoiling if I left it there.

Great whiskey. I hope this will be continued and others added.

Yes, I must admit I really liked that one too, managed to get a couple bottles a month or so back. However the New tullamore Dew Phoenix is not 100 miles away from it and even possibly a better replacement but that is all subjective ;)

Both blends created with Grain, malt and Pot Still whiskey of which a precentage was sherry cask and in my eyes both are of a similar charachter. However I have never tasted them side by side so i could be way off :lol:

A good buy though if you can find it again :thumbsup:

If memory serves, from the 'Tullamore Dew Black' bottle label, the blending list stipulated 'Pure Pot Still' - I have to say that I really liked that! None of this new Single Pot Still nonense :lol:

Cheers,

Hi John,

You could be right there ...

got me thinking ...and I checked the bottle. On reading the bottle yes it would like to make you think that it was a pot still blend. However the description is very flakey.

as it also says "enriched by ... full flavoured pot still" so are they just adding a bit of pot still to the blend to up it or what are they implying :lol:

All good though :thumbsup:

Redbreast Mano A Lámh. After only 8 days my first has bit the dust. I had a little help. I guess they've appreciated in value now.

In the last 3-4 weeks the following have fallen ....

Jameson 15 yo (Browbn label 70's Bottling)

Tullamore Dew Phoenix

Laphroaig Quarter cask

Laphroaig Cask Strength x2 (Batch No2 & No4)

and 3 or 4 others I can't think of. Usually just think of this thread when I'm recycling our glass. Most were at minimum levels so the shelves are starting to look bare :shock:

Im at my annual whiskey event in Bardstown. Picking a few barrels for a whiskey group.

this Teeling 21 did not last the entire trip. It will me missed. (and possibly replaced) The stewed fruits, oily mouthfeel and that thin layer of smoke was absolutely mesmerizing.

Killed a couple more bottles....

the Cuig.... a delicious pot still whiskey with fantastic tropical fruits and a nice spice finish

Midleton Single Cash First Fill sherry. what a cracker. Big sherry. Bright. great mouthfeel and a finish that lasts forever. My bourbon club killed this one quickly. Id like to replace bot the price point is prohibitive.

I've finally finished my 1973 Carn Mór single Grain. It's took me nearly 2 years. Luckily it was cask strength. It's no great whiskey. 36 years in wood didn't do it any favours anyway. Worth trying something different all the same.

Jack Ryan Malt just bit the dust. An absolutely lovely whiskey. I'll replenish this one without a doubt.

Last night, Amrut Fusion #20. It lasted 19 mnths, but improved greatly in that time. I was nearly sad to see it go, but it will not be replaced.

Longrow CV, lovely whisky.
The Irishman 70, I think this is very good value for money here in Norway. I will buy more.

I had a little clear out over the last few days. I worked the weekend end as so have been off for the last few days.
I managed to empty a second Mano A Lámh, Ardbeg Corryvreckan and a beautiful Linkwood 15 year old, part of the Un-Chillfiltered Collection from Signatory. Three completely different whiskeys but all outstanding.
