I could agree with you but then we'd both be wrong.

Horrible stuff imo. Would only have it in an irish coffee. 
I think it’s the nicest out of the base level ones.

Yeh, i'd take Powers over Paddy and Jameson and the corked bottle definitely swings it. Don't like the new bottle design though.

Bottles from then aren't what you want, really. You'd rather something recently bottled that was casked back then and only recently bottled. If you want to really, really splash out, there is a whiskey that was discovered by Jameson's master distiller Barry Crockett back in 1994. It was a cask that had been filled in 1964 but somehow misplaced and forgotten about. It was one cask and there aren't that many bottles of it left. It's called Dungourney 1964 but a bottle of it will set you back the best part of a grand at this stage. They were €600 about five years ago, so if they are still for sale, it'll be more than that.

I worked in the Croke Park hotel and we had two bottles of it. When Ireland were playing Russia a couple of years ago, there were some Russians staying, and they drank us out of it.... except the f**kers were drinking it with coke. Absolute cretins.

Jesus Angry
A friend of mine had a similar experience. He refused to serve the coke. His manager told him to give the customer what he wanted. My friend said, F this and walked off the job.
Your friend is a spanner.
LOL
A degree of truth to that....

Going for €100, be going for a lot more on the auction sites in the not too distant future.

Blue spot was €80 when it came out, €220 on auction sites now. Could get over a grand for 2020 midleton very rare now, was €180 when it came out. I'd imagine this will follow the trend, but not to the same extent.

As a friend once said to me, the good thing about whiskey is, it it doesn't go up in value, you can just drink it!

I buy some bottles for collecting in the home they go up in value and then some for drinking, bought two redbreast earlier, one for me and one for keeping in the wardrobe hoping it goes up in value!

You just talking about buying the whiskey in the off license or from the distillery website? Wouldn't mind getting a bottle of Midleton and drinking it.

Got those from their website, bought a few from the offo during lockdown, Method and Madness single pot probably the pick, the blue spot was very good too.

Will have one of the redbreast 10 bottles for myself too.

Got 2 bottles of the Midleton Very Rare in 2017 when I had twins. Drank one and keeping one for their 18th/21st or something. They'll probably hate it and want a Fat Frog or Jagerbomb or something

Just ice with anything decent. 
Might have a drop of ginger ale if it’s cheaper stuff

Picked up a bottle of Connemara peated single malt the other day after it was recommended to me. Cracking stuff but wouldn’t dream of using anything other than a solitary ice cub with it
