    Agreed. It's great whisky. If I crack it open, it usully doesn't last more than a week.

It finishes with a pleasing bit of sherry wood, which shuts the door on all that sweetness.
    I thought this was a strange whisky. I got weird notes of raisins and green olives in addition to the floral notes. Wasn't sure what to make of it.

    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.

    Nope. That's an independent bottler from Switzerland's label.

    LOL, Doug Dog had it in his closet (poor lighting), so I walked into the bathroom to take a quick photo.

    Man....you guys don't miss anything!
