I was very pleased; it is rich and complex. Truly worth the effort if any of you Scotch fans want to try an Irish whiskey.

Yum!

I'm with Boomer, I've never seen it before either.

On my way home Saturday, I stopped in at the best purveyor of Scotch here and ended up having a lovely conversation with the department manager.

Yes, they have a manager just for Scotch! He goes over several times a year, buying casks, arranging for bottling, etc. I could sure use a gig like that....

At any rate, we stood in front of the Macallan section, a tightly packed, ten-foot long shelf, with everything from the cask-strength and 25-year-old on down. If I ever win the big lottery, I'm going to go in there and buy several cases....
