    just doesnt put a foot out of place, with a splash of water..lots of fruit here along with vanilla and pepper. blackcurrents, sherry, peel, chocolate and the odd bit of copper. a half teaspoon tops of water opens and smooths this even further. its closer to the 15 than the 12 imo but for me better, and cheaper at about £46 here at moment.
    maybe slightly dryer in profile.

    Thank you Grant,
    $65.99 a bottle here.
    Is there any shortbread in there?
    I heard from a good source the price of ER 10 year is expected to go up so I bought 4 bottles and gave one as a birthday gift .
    Maybe Friday I will get a bottle of Powers JL. I don't know it will beat RB15 for me as the flavor profile is different but it sounds like a darn good bottle to have around as I don't just stay with one favorite bottle.I do something different all the time. I love the flavor profile of the RB15 so much ,I don't think another Irish Whisky can replace it in my cabinet,though it may have to share some space.

    And which reminds me... When you return to Lidl, Robin, be sure to scroll back first on this thread to where I highlighted what was worth getting, from the pics you took of the shelves, as there are some stonkers in there

    This (which was shown in your pic) is an *absolute must*:



    Think 'poor man's' Châteauneuf-du-Pape, but not so poor!

    And don't forget the Chablis (also shown on the shelves):



    But don't wait too long to go back, as their stocks change frequently!



    Marco.
    Grant, we have to be very careful here...
    If we ever got Marco to convert from wine to whiskey ,he would have his own copper pot still and Rick house full of casks.
    He would begin drinking away all his wine to fill the bottles with whiskey!
    This just can't happen the wine industry needs him.

    Very expensive here a pair will be $80.00 but worth it.
    After reading about the Jacobites it would be fitting to drink some Tryconnell in that glass.In honor of then Tryconnell Deputy Governor of Ireland who appointed Catholics to high level positions in both the Military and political positions.
    He played a large roll in that political movement. It's also a good excuse to have a good Irish drop in a very nice looking glass.

    Lots and lots of fruit on nose and pepper on mouth.. Needs a bit of water to open up

    edit.. yes a lot of water to tame this beast.. very sherried with lots of wood spice.. european oak if 1st fill can be very powerful.. still its a lovely drink when tamed a bit... but never domesticated
