    I drink both whiskey & scotch. I've never tried proper 12. Never actually seen it available. But I've tried several other "celebrity" blends & they've all been shit to undrinkable. So I figure proper12 will fall into that category. But I'd try it just to compare my impressions to the expert's. Also crown royal is piss.

    Look we know it was a shit product but Conor would have made good money off his name with it. He definitely had shares

    This may be true. I've tried it and it was nothing special. The individual flavors in it esp the vanilla overtones, kind of stood out too much. maybe this will mellow out over time. It could be quite good eventually.

    Like I said, I haven't tried it. Continuing to call it "scotch" because you think it upsets people just makes you look dumber and dumber by the post. But for sure keep doing it, it makes no difference to me.

    He tried to shit on it, without even knowing what it is. Now he just keeps posting claiming he just calls all whiskey scotch. And now he keeps calling it scotch because he thinks he's hurting feelings. It's pretty embarrassing.

    You seem to be going on about it, so I am entertained.

    It's not even close to as good as Bushmills. It's way more harsh and medical tasting.

    He owns the brand.

    I don't know the details, but I'm assuming he doesn't own any of the infrastructure used to make the whiskey.

    Bushmills use malt and grain whiskey, aged in bourbon, sherry and port casks. This will just be a blend of stuff they already had in the warehouse.

    There is no age statement so all we can deduce from that is that any component of it must be at least 3 years old.

    In order to keep costs down they could use only bourbon casks, possibly after multiple uses. They could use young whisky and a lot of grain whiskey which is cheaper to produce. All of those things would give you a lower quality product.

    From his perspective, I assume he can pretty much walk away any time.

    It depends how much his company actually does. Do they blend, bottle and distribute? Or do they just own the brand and Bushmills / Casa Cuervo (parent company) do all the work?

    It’s not scotch, but you wouldn’t know the difference
    If you had enough finesse for that your trolling would be more subtle
    p12 is perfect for you, cheers

    Just a word to the wise man. If you are going to ridicule something publically, make sure you know what you are saying.

    Whiskey doesn't age once it's bottled, unlike wine.

    If it was aged in barrels longer before bottling, it wouldn't be the same process used to make current "proper 12".
