When the reserves start running low I'll get a bottle of Ledaig in!  Any particular one?

I can only find their 'standard' 10 year old Ledaig down here in Aus - but by all means try the older and more exotic ones if you have the pockets. Next time I am in the UK / Scotland I am determined to try some of sherry cask Ledaigs they do.

It's not Whisky it's Whiskey.

Jamesons Redbreast 12 year old or if your feeling flush they do a 21 year old.

Liquid gold.

Whiskey is Irish and Whisky Scottish i thought?

Didn't think that Jamesons made a decent whiskey for some reason! I'll keep the Redbrest in mind, ta. Only other Irish one I've tried is Bushmills which was alright.

wiki will solve this

"Irish whiskey
Irish Whiskey is a cheap way to get really drunk, really fast. God pretty much only invented Jameson to get cheap people and alcoholics drunk quickly with little investment. As a basic rule, cheap Irish is better than cheap Scotch but expensive Irish is only mildly better than cheap Irish while expensive Scotch is like manna from heaven."

Drinking Scotch is like supporting the rags.

People think it's great until they discover the real thing.

rags will never discover "the real thing" - too delusional.
