    Must try the Johns lane. Of course both redbreast and powers come out of Midleton these days.

    Teelings would be another new Irish distillery worth a try. I think most of the whiskey they're currently selling is coming from barrels distilled in cooley's.

    Yes, but not for a while. My memory is that it's pretty good considering it's price point.

    Teeling are one of a number of new distilleries which have opened in Ireland in the last few years. Although pretty much most of their current whiskeys come from barrels distilled at coolies.
    They must have a pretty interesting stock as they are releasing some interesting and age statement whiskeys.

    I have a bottle of this



    Which is their first release from their new distillery.

    The Tomintoul 25 seems to be very highly regarded. It seems a tad on the pricey side though.

    NAS issue from Glen Keith, who usually just sell to blenders.
    Banana, apple and malteasers for me.. Honey and vanilla, sweet peach and yet a drying oak there too. A splash of water helps this along nicely. Not much tho as it's a 40%abv.

    Nice tho for money.
