All of ths talk, plus a little more in chat, led me to pour Lag 16 last night.
A real treat thanks to Hans and Doug Dog.
Loads and loads of iodine with an elegant, sweet finish. The smoke was completely gone! Fully replaced by the sherry.....and it was REALLY good! I want more.....
Paddy Irish. Now available in PA, albeit only in 1L bottles (though that happens to be the size I prefer, anyway). Good stuff, though I can't really tell it apart from Powers Gold Label-- I mean that both as a criticism and a compliment, as I believe Powers to be the best "basic" blend in the P-R/IDG portfolio.
And what were you doing drinking it on the pot? ;-)
