Had a couple of drams of it yesterday. The price is reasonable and it's widely available (I gather)... Have you already tried peated Connemara, by the way?

There surely is. I haven't tried it yet though, so if you do, don't hesitate to post your feedback

go on ralfy.....if you know more about this whisky, please tell. Is there bourbon casks somewhere about here? How do they get the same start product, to end up so far apart. The peat and all is there, but the iodine (which i dont care for) doesnt seem to be at the fore...what age is this then?
is this the "Blasda" of the Laph stable? Perhaps there is hope for me an the old peat hurricane after all!?!?!

If you're coming from town, it's just past ormeau park on the other side of the road (ie on the right) before you get to where the curzon cinema used to be. The prices will obviously be a bit higher than the likes of Tesco etc, but the range should be a lot better than anywhere else. It might be worth ringing them before you go if you're looking for something specific.
i know people talk of whisky oxidizing, but surely it doesnt go like this? such a change for the worse in a week. do you have to decant islays whiskys into smaller bottles as you get down the bottle? it is quite a broad bottle? does that make a difference? pardon my ignorance.
