I no longer have Green Spot, but it was very good while it lasted. The cheapest Teeling is a little harsh for me, but the single grain is good. Bushmills 10 year is nice whiskey.
    God, I would kill for a bottle of RB12 cask. So hard to find in Utah.

    I've tried a few of the caskmates and think they are absolutely unbearable.

    To each their own.
    Is it radix panax notoginseng? - splat

    I used to see it regularly here. Now itís usually just the regular 12 yo expression. Weíre getting more of the Spots, though.

    I was pretty ambivalent about Irish before spending a week there for a friendís wedding. I drank enough of it to develop a taste for it, but I still prefer Scotch, bourbon, or rye. I probably have a half a dozen bottles of Irish but havenít bought one in a couple years. The next one I buy will probably be a Red Breast. Preferably the cask strength.

    The Teeling distillery tour was one of the best Iím Iíve ever done. Highly recommended.

    The shortages on the higher marques are everywhere now- and completely unexplained by the suppliers. It doesn't really make sense to me why the 12 yr 80 is showing up without any 15 yr or cask strength in the container with it but that's what is happening. Irish whiskey isn't really comparable to Scotch or Bourbon most of the time. It has more in common with higher quality Canadian or American Blended whiskies. That isn't good for marketing purposes but it's the truth.
