Does whiskey go off after its been open for a bit?


#965

I had 3 large drops of this last night while watching the latest sicario movie. It’s a grand whiskey. Nothing out of this world but for its price it’s very good value and perfect for a casual midweek drop if you don’t want to use up the good stuff. Well worth having a couple of bottles about. Very mild as scotch goes…


#966

Is that the stuff that got the whisky of the year award?


#967

It did …I think it was based on price as much as anything… but It’s very easy to drink.

Crested was 25e in tesco roxboro today. Picked up a pair as there were few left on the shelf.

Black bush was 26e

@Malarkey would you go for a Glendronach or a Glen Deveron?


#970

Had a goid feed of Bushills and Jameson last night.
I had a serious serious horn on me after it.


#971

Amazing what happens when the taigs and the prods get along


#972

Just opened a bottle of the Jameson Caskmates IPA edition. Well impressed by it.


#973

This GlenDeveron is ok.


#974

That and the stout edition are lovely smooth whiskeys and great value.


#975

Jameson didn’t even think enough of them to provide a cork


#976

You see lots of mid range wines now as well with screw caps.

That’s the way things have gone I suppose


#977

I thought those caskmates were junk. Crested is a class whiskey. Jim beam Rye has a screw cap, and I’d happily have it for breakfast


#978

A Glendronach (or even a GlenDronach, as it now appears to be). Really underated whisky (except by blenders). Glen Deveron is grand but not in same league.


#979

Thanks. I saved the Glendronach for later. Its a 21 year old. No idea where I got it. Glendeveron is grand but not a patch on the recent Green Spot.


#980

Is the Glen dronach a single malt?


#981

Lovely few drops of yellow spot last night… The only thing is it followed about 6 Guinness and half a bottle of Chablis… I’ve an awful itchy hole today.


#982

You must have worms pal.


#983

He got them off Brady.

Is Jameson Crested just a rebrand of Crested Ten?
