Posted 12th FebAvailable: National
A ten year old single malt Irish whisky matured in bourbon casks and bottled as a Supermarket exclusive, distilled at Cooley. Although not publicised online, the assistant did say it was a National deal, it was certainly available at two of my local Lidls...(Govan and Port Glasgow).

At the risk of being shot, how does this (and/or other Irish single malts) compare to Scottish single malts? I suppose for the sake of science, and £20, I should get a bottle if it's available this side of the border.

I've never been a fan of Irish whiskey, but have probably only had Jameson's, which would be like thinking I didn't Scotch based on only having Bells (or even worse, that awful stuff in Perfume bottle advertised by Beckham).

I think it compares well to Scotch singles and better blends I've tried on my limited budget, needless to say, they are not such a bargain as this..Is the Irish stuff not triple distilled?
MMMMM, just trying a drop now....

Just to add, the 'basic' Bushmills blend is a lot smoother than comparable Scotch such as Bells

Irish whiskey is generally very sweet sugary tasting. I suspect this will be too. Its nice but not even a patch on Islay based Scottish whisky's which are the best whiskys on the whole planet in my person opinion..
Can I ask is this a local deal, or national? Anyone know? As I don't think I have seen this in any of my local branches.

I cannot say for sure....But....
It was in two different stores locations, so that would suggest that it wasn't just clearing stock or a manager's special. The assistant seemed to think that it was National, however it was after 9.00pm when I asked Her.

I prefer this to Glenmorangie, maybe it's my sweet tooth...

Do you mean in terms of quality or flavour? I've not tried this (yet, so it at my local Lidl a few weeks back and forgot about it!) so I can't speak to the flavour/quality of this single malt, but an Irish single malt will still taste like an Irish whiskey. It should hopefully be better than your standard Jameson's or Bushmills, but it will taste more like these drinks than a single malt scotch. Irish whiskey tends to be more sugary, flowery, more delicate than Scotch. Daniel Whittington of The Whiskey Vault likes to describe Irish whiskey as "pretty" and I think that's a decent way of describing it.

All depends on tastes.
I made my wife do a blind taste test with a lagavulin 14, a balvennie, glenfarclas 175, bells and a caol ila cask strength.

She decided the bells was nicest...

I usually go for something like an argbeg uigeadail or laphroaig quarter cask as a regular goto but I loved the glenmorangie qunita ruban, one of the best I've ever tried. Its very sweet (for my tastes), might be up your alley if you haven't tried it already.

I would say try Laphroaig Quater Cask or Talisker Storm and see which of the four you prefer. (Laphroiag is smokey, Talisker is very salty). Every other whisky just feels bland in comparison to them two for me after trying them.

Well, if I had deep pockets I'd try them all, several times.
