Nice spot. Link below. I like the old school bottles in the attached picture. A lot of Cooley whiskey.https://www.fonsiemealy.ie/catalogue/B08650D71DD10446ECF992795B7A4153/315A4C4BD46AD07A88E43DAF24E1E6BF/killoughter-house-ashford-county-wicklow-ireland/?currentPageNo=3
BonnieSituations username choice is actually an interesting story. All I'll say is expect a bid for those Two Ladies Dressage Hats from him.

Bought a Highland Park Dragon Honour in Tesco NI recently reduced to £24. it was £70 to start with last year, then went to £40, which is ridiculous for a whiskey that claims to be richer and smokier than the normal 12 year old and is neither. I mean its fine but its all marketing nonsense with them. The taste is all front end with absolutely no finish which i also found disappointing. ill come back to it in a few weeks and see what its like then.

I am becoming quite skeptical of some the cheaper scotch that appears in the likes of Tesco and Sainsburys. There's quite a lot of non-age statement stuff appearing at seemingly good prices but when you check the reviews they're not always too great.

What's the consensus on Glenmorangie Original 10 year old? I drank it last weekend and was very disappointed, tasted cheap and burnt the throat off me. I've tried all types of Irish and Scotch from cheap to expensive, and was expecting good things from Glenmoranie 10yo, is there any chance there is such a thing as a bad bottle in the batch?

I've never tried a nosing glass before. Teeling are selling them for a fiver a go. Would they hold the same amount of whiskey as a glencairn?
Really liked my Glenmorangie 10 btw. Didnt last too long.

Glenmorangie 10 is usually very well reviewed and would be considered a bit of a classic. It's very delicate, however, and I find that if you drink it after eating - particularly something very sweet or that will have covered your taste buds - you won't be able to taste much of anything out of it. It's as delicate as something like an Auchentoshan.
Best to approach it not having eaten, or just taken water, and then see how you get on. But it's quite subtle and floral at the best of times. I have a 2020 bottle and it's perhaps not as good as years past but it is what it is. Something like the Nectar d'Or or other sherry or port finished whiskies are Glenmorangie's forte think.
It's only 40% ABV so it shouldn't burn your throat under any circumstances, really. I would personally not add water at all at that ABV.

I like the nosing (snifter) glasses but they are very delicate. I bought a few in Porto recently for holding port and 3 out of 4 have broken sadly. Its just handy to grab as well.

Petrol might be too strong a word but it’s very harsh, so you could be right in saying that I’ve just got used to smoother whiskeys. It reminded me of cheaper blended scotch in the €20 range, maybe I was also expecting a bit more because of the name. I might try the Quinta Ruban 14 and see if that’s more to my taste

I did waste some money on the waterford crytsal version of the Glencairn glasses.
Have to say they are good and solid and are nice to drink from.
I use them all the time now - mind you any difference in quality could be me in my own head haha
They do cost a good bit for 2 of them but they will last unless i actually drop and smash one.
