Can anyone recommend anything, around the £20-£30 mark.
I've already had Jamesons, Bushmills, Black Bush and Connemara, so soething different would be interesting

I second these, although I have had Redbreast 12yo only, sorry, which was for me very complex and interesting whiskey and I'm going to order RB15yo and Green Spot soon.
They have a shop in the city centre on Nassau Street adjacent to Grafton Street.
Also Locke's 8yo € 36.99 is a nice peated single malt worth trying.
Powers 12yo € 35.99 is not liked by all and very much an Irish whiskey
but Redbreast 12 € 37.49 or Greenspot € 38.99 are probably your best bet all right.
Generally these would be around 35.00 in other off licences and supermarkets but as the above is a whiskey specialist and has a bigger selection he charges slightly more.
redbreast 15yo as it's a limited edition, i went to buy one yesterday and they dind't have it any longer.
and i would defenatley recommend jameson 12yo distillery edition ,if you didn't have it already (available in the old jameson distillery in Dublin (bowstreet))
but they cost more than 30€
The Jameson 12yo is a great whiskey also but I would presume it is widely available in the UK.
I'd go for the Green Spot if you're buying it in Dublin.
When you wife is coming back through Dublin airport, she could pick you up some Jameson Gold. Or there are usually Bushmills cask whiskey available in the Duty Free.
In summary then, Green Spot or Jameson Gold.

OMG! I need to fill in my order immediately, price is 49.90€ at my "purveyor", before they run out.
