Its worse! In my opinion red bush would be more suited to mixing as opposed to drinking neat. Powers is vastly superior to red bush.

The 19th it says in the ad on the paper, wouldn't be surprised if it's extended, usually this will run up to Christmas Eve.

Would you have tried the black barrel, any opinion?
I really enjoy Powers but I'm torn between the two.

Jameson Black Barrell and Bushmills Black bush are two very different whiskeys! What are you torn between?

Im not a huge Jameson drinker but I do like Black Barrel. Iv never tried any of the caskmates bottlings though. Other posters might provide you with a little more help around the Jameson aspect of things but Black Barrel is nice IMO.

If your budget allows i'd go with Powers Three Swallows, its €30-€35ish at the minute in a few different places and IMO is a far superior whiskey to black barrell. If not then i would prefer Jameson Crested to Black Barrell and is better value at €25. These are all on offer prices, i think in general the prices are;

Powers/Jameson €20-22
Jameson Crested €30
Black Barrel €40
Three Swallows €40

If you prefer Jameson go with the black barrel, if you prefer Powers try get the Three Swallows. All my opinion of course so your mileage may vary.

Tesco have Cardhu whiskey reduced from €49.99 to €30. It's a really good bargain for a very good single malt.
