Really enjoying my first glass this evening. John Martyn, warm glow of the Valves and candles is adding to the atmosphere. 

I'm just getting into Whiskey. Any other suggestions at a reasonable price? 

Kind regards, Stu 👍 🥃

Highland park is very good..bunnahabhain stiruridreadair is excellent!  I just bought a few bottles of johnnie walker ' white' reduced at asda £18 each..its quite nice! Japanese 'toki' whisky is sometimes reduced..its a bit of a aquired taste..but once you get used to it? Very nice.... I have drunk many whiskies in my time..bunnahabhain stiruridreadair is my go to whisky..its unaged as many whiskies seem to be nowadays.. First dram ' bit rough'  lol second dram ' actually quite flavoursome' third dram ' im not sharing this whisky ' lol...

I prefer Irish Whiskey to Scottish Whisky. Irish Whiskey does not generally have the peat flavour as the malted barley is not heated/smoked over peat and it is usually triple distilled giving a purer ethanol. 

I find Irish Whiskey  is smoother than all but the more expensive Scottish single malts.

I saw a review of whiskies according to bartenders in new york ( and I guess they should know! ) and every whisky which was chosen was irish whisky! No japanese,  no scottish, no taiwan whisky! So you might be right..
