Not drinking yet, but saw a Woodford Reserve Rye locally at lunch time, and as I've not really had the chance to investigate ryes other than drinking Bulleitt (a high rye bourbon), I bought one to see what I think.
Also got a replacement Teachers Highland Cream as a daily drammer.

Work is over, but waiting in line for replacement bus services after train disruption is eating into my fucking valuable drinking time! Moderately speaking!!
Cheer up old bastard and have a drink, don’t forget to bloody SMILE 😊

It wasn't bad, but I'm starting to feel that
1. Irish whiskies are a bit one dimensional.
2. The grain part of most blends is way too high.
3. Bourbons and ryes are a bit 2 dimensional
4. Speysiders are a bit 3 dimensional
5. Islay's are where it's at.

If 1,2,3 were commensurately cheaper I could accept it, but 4 & (mostly) 5 are where my taste buds lie.

Two fails for me today.
Slane Irish whiskey, and Loch Lomond 12.
Now I've fit to try and work out how to use to the rest of the bottles.

The Allardice - I'm hoping for the Revival to come back in stock.

Edit - It's back and $$$.
The reviews I've read / seen say that it doesn't taste the same as the older version (with a different blender). I never got to try it, so that wouldn't particularly bother me - I just wanted to get an Allardice which was in fact closer to 23 years old than the stated 18!
