    I picked up a bottle of Peter Jake’s Private Keep 10 year old

    Any comments on this particular bottling?

    I haven't opened it yet. I was just trying to find out if others have tried it and what they thought. It is one for the collection.

    I wasn't overly impressed with it. It was OK, but overpriced and had a taste quite similar to some of Heaven Hill's other expressions.

    Tried it.
    Didn't like it.
    Dumped it.

    The thing with non-distiller producers is that they buy their whiskey where they can so they can't necessarily be consistent. It's possible, of course, that's it's just a difference of taste, but with a product like that it's also possible that Joe got, in effect, a completely different whiskey, i.e., a good one. If he buys it again, he might not be so lucky.
