Edit: Also I'm not a huge tequila fan; but this is definitely something i would recommend for anyone to try. You can sip on it straight on the Rocks; the smell is very deceiving smells strong of tequila however just taste it without smelling. Trust smells worse than it taste.

***** Those that do try it please let me know your feedback.

I had a friend come over for game night 2 weeks ago, she brought a handle of Blue Label - wow, it was really good. Smooth.
And we took shots of it like college kids.

Mouth feel is average in my opinion, certainly not bad, but the nose. I love it just for that. Even though it is Irish and therefore subpar to Scotch.

The Glendalough 13 is very easy drinking with the right glass.

If you've never had either, I recommend picking up a bottle of the Barr first and give it a good nose before sipping.

I have to get another bottle now that I've typed this out.
I have not had the opportunity to try those, but I have added them to my "shopping list." I hope I can find them.

When you say "the right glass", which glasses do you use/prefer? As you can see in the pic above, I use Riedel Vinum Single Malt Whiskey Glass for most of my whisky drinking.

I actually prefer Irish whiskey over Scotch and a majority of my collection is Irish single pot whiskey with a few bottles of Scotch mixed in.

Cheers!

Mostly anything shaped for whiskey as opposed to your standard water glass (which I've definitely used as well, but there does appear to be a difference to me, so I like to use different glasses for my whisky).

Mine are your basic Glenlivet glasses, tulip shaped with a small stout stem. I like them - I think yours should work quite well too though, and Riedel makes good glasses.

Definitely keep an eye out for it!

From earlier this week - was in the mood for an Old Fashioned. Was pleasantly surprised with Blade and Bow bourbon - had never even heard of it and received it as a gift from a family member.

Walked into the liquor store for simple syrup and saw they had Double Black on sale for $34, so thought, why not.
