tabednar, do you have any connection to that site? Full disclosure is a good thing. Whether yes or no, would be good, and respectful to the rest of us here, for you to let us know what you like about it, it's in-and-outs, goods-and-bads rather than just this naked plug....

I have no affiliation with the site at all. I just got interested in whisky a little more and was looking something to the calibur of snooth but for whisky. I like everything about snooth and I figured if anyone else was lookin for something similar to snooth in the whisky world they would like to know about it.

I just joined so ill give a better reivew later when I mess around more with it.

Cheers,

Tim

Thanks for the clarification, t. I also like whisky a lot, particularly single malts, so will be interested to hear more from your explorations over there.

Can't understand why a review of Whisk(e)y and no reference to Irish: Jameson, Bushmills, Redbreast, Midleton, Tullamore Dew, Paddy and the rest. Only Scotch....weird

I've had a fair bit of Irish over the years, but only a drop in the bucket compared to the Scotch I've enjoyed. So Ronan, I'd be interested in a comparison between the best of Eire and the best single malts from across that wee stretch of water. Any pointers in such a direction?

Jameson Gold is my favourite, though some also love Jameson Rarest Vintage reserve, Bushmills 1608 is excellent, and 12 year old Redbreast (if you like Pot still). I think Irish single malts are an acquired taste if you have only tried scotch, but you will certainly find them less peaty, and perhaps smoother. To quote the author Iain Rankin, you will often find that the more inexpensive Irish whiskies are generally better quality than their inexpensive Scotch counterparts, but once you start moving up the ranges, you might find personal tastes begin to apply. I tend to like the Island malts better, but maybe this is because they remind me of Irish whiskey.

You've got me started now :)

Well keep going! ;-) 

I like the Islay malts to start with, but plenty of others.

Cheers

I am from the States, and do enjoy some Bourbon, but I have yet to find one with the complexity of a good Scottish single malt. I also like that referenced website.
