    Not sure I don't prefer it to redbreast.



    smallest drop of o2 is imho worthwhile
    On my list to try Grant, I quite like the 3 swallow release, which is a non age stated single pit still.

    Not seen it for, sale in UK. Might be an Irish only.
    John's Lane is about 47£ so similar to redbreast. Both are superb whiskies tho. Not scottish if course but nice. Edradour 10 is a bit cheaper but should be held in similar style for price from home waters.

    Not seen it here. The John's Lane is worth the trying. It's maybe nearer the Redbreast 15 in style
