Tasted some Indian whiskey the other night from Paul John and it was a revelation. Their Kanya and Peated select cask releases were both stunning. Looked them up in the Whisky Bible and they both scored 96 which says it all. Well worth a try.

The humidity means they lose 8% of the cask ever year whereas somewhere like Midleton only loses 1-2%. Both those whiskeys are only 7 year old but the humidity/temperature in goa speeds up the wood interaction and gives them a much more complex whiskey than the age suggests.

Unsurprisingly so. Hopefully they try and do something like BWW last week

Supermarkets - when on offer in Ireland or when I'm up north (being close to the border helps)

Off licence - when offers are on. O'Briens and Celtic Whiskey are useful spots

Gifts- If anyone ever asks me for a gift idea I say a bottle of whiskey (just not the regulars Bushmills, Jameson, Powers or Paddy)

Speaking of I'd my 40th in May and a close frined dropped me in a bottle of Drumshanbo whiskey last week. Looks interesting.

As above. I was also buying quite a lot at the airports due to frequent travels.

People give out about the price and the age of this - usually without tasting the product.
I tried it and liked it. Found it well made and refined.

TBF people need to taste before commenting

I was at the Liberties event in BWW and their stuff is amazing. The master distiller is doing great work even though their own stock is still aging.

The liquid they've bought in and mash bills and aging are superb.

I missed the event and going to watch it back online. What's the last whiskey in the set?
The card in the box says it's the murder lane 16 year old. I assume it is murder lane which is a 13 yo rather than the keepers coin 16yo?

Tesco, which often has ridiculous offers
O'Briens
Indie in Marino - Sweeneys - bit dear but has stuff you won't find elsewhere at times
Airports
Tesco in Holyhead - they actually have slightly different products due to having less Irish and backfilling with more Scotch/American; and I've got mad offers like half-sized bottles of Chivas for £7.

i think they said that was a misprint on the card so its a 13yo as you said.

Glenfarclas, tried it during the BWW scots whiskey session. Thought it was nice enough but preferred most of the others.

Spicy and sherberty sweet on the nose. Spiciness drops off and the sweetness remains, a kind of artificial sweetness but nice.

Not as much depth, or sweetness in the taste but still nice enough, slight bitter finish.
