Thought it would be a good comparison to The Irishman 70 which is less expensive and younger but only has pot still and single malt without the grain. Probably won't crack it open until closer to the holiday.
Thanks guys --- Good to know that the Tullamore 12 is a legit upgrade to the standard issue. Maybe I'll give it a shot for this coming holiday.
