Seems reasonably pricey for full sized bottles of the stuff so I'd say it will be good quality.

This is my local shop, full of amazing whisky and knowledgable blokes trying to sell you as much as possible

Site is good for checking this sort of stuff out... http://www.whiskygalore.co.nz/collections/highland/Dalmore


Want to get some GlenDronach 15 Revival and Glenmorangie 18 year old myself. $$$ though.

Cheers Grade. Will have a look on there.

I've given up drinking but can definitely see myself treating myself to a nice bottle from time to time in the future. I'm not a big fan of whisky in general but if you fork out on a decent bit the difference in flavor and smoothness is amazing. Really enjoyed sipping a little glass before bed once in a while.

I got him a bottle of this as one of his Christmas presents and it was incredible....



A Japanese Whiskey called Nikka, Its a bit pricey (for me anyway) but it was delicious.

The Dalmore 15 year is the only one I have tried and I really liked it, it was silky smooth. I am a massive Jonnie Walker fan but if you are going by price range a bottle of Green is about the same price as this and I think I would actually prefer the Dalmore for the price.

Thats a nice touch for a present, I wouldnt actually mind getting one of those for myself, how much was it bud?

Green Label is delicious but you can get some pretty good single malts for the same price. I like Johnnie Walker's range (apart from Red Label, strictly for mixing) even though most whisky snobs will try and drill it into you that they're overpriced crap.

Got a bottle of Blue Label lined up for graduation day, can't wait to try it...

^ Ardbeg is amazing also

Laphroaig, Lagavulin, Bowmore. As far as I know, most whisky from Islay region is heavily peated, as a rule anyway. But yeah Laphroaig if you really like peat, it's like drinking a bonfire.

the blue is lovely... my fav through and through is the double black to be fair.

not tried ardberg.

I did try the Chivas Regal 18year last week and was pleasantly suprised by it but I had already had quite a few drinks so I think ill have to try it again!

I read this as Whiskey Slippers about 10 times before noticing my error.

That is all.

Had a couple of goes at that, it's pretty good but the smoke taste was a bit much for me after a while, I probably prefer standard Black label tbh. I reckon you would like Ardbeg and Laphroaig etc if that's your favourite JW though

I know a guy who used to flick all his fag ash into his pint as someone once told him he would get more pissed.

He is perhaps the thickest man I know.

I payed £55, which is pricey considering the amount of whisky you get but your paying for the presentation box as much as anything.

I've had the Wild Turkey American Honey which I imagine is what that JD will taste like... it's like alcoholic sugar syrup basically, if you dilute with water it's dangerously easy to drink, mate in Aus used to drink it by the pint with water & ice lol
