Here’s one for the “Did you know” factoid guys.

If Erinmore, Irish & University flakes were to be considered a “triplet”...then they each have a twin...or something.  

This, quoted from notes pertaining to Peterson University Flake...Wallace Flake, etc.

“After K&K lost the Peterson range to Mac Baren, they did not want to waste their recipes. They tweaked them a little and simply renamed the old Peterson line to be re-released under the Rattray's label: Malcolm Flake being Erinmore Flake; Sterling Flake being Irish Flake; and Wallace Flake being University Flake.”

Well...I think it’s interesting.

Looks like the Pete iteration is $1.25 cheaper!

My take on Irish/Sterling (YMMV) -- A few years, when the Irish Flake was moved to being packaged in round tins rather than rectangular (possibly a change in maker?), I felt the topping was reduced a bit. I liked the new version, I just liked the old version a bit more. Sterling tasted like the old version -- until they also moved to round tins, which tastes sort of in between the two versions of Irish Flake.

At least that's how it tastes to me!

Still good stuff in any iteration

Yipper, they're basically all the same than the Peterson they used to manufacture. I'm currently smoking through a tin of Sir William and it's identical to Irish Whisky.
