I am very fond of this Greenore. I always have a bottle in my cabinet (apart from the closed bottles - I have the whole range - which I collect). It is the only Irish single grain on the market, if I'm not mistaken. And a very good one. The brand was recently sold to Jim Beam Inc, but the people at Cooley have promised they will keep producing this wonderful spirit.
