    Jameson's Irish Whiskey

    Damn it's smooth. Got a bottle of it tonight, so much better than Johnny Red or Black. The Irish know their whiskey.

    I visited the old distillery (made into a museum, located next to the newly-built distillery) in Midleton once during my two years in Cork.
    Don't like whiskey at all, though, but it was interesting nevertheless.

    I was in a pub in Wales. I asked the barkeep, "Do you have any good scotch whiskey." Without batting an eye, he answered, "Is there such a thing?"
    Dead last finish is better than did not finish and infinitely better than did not start.

    RedBreast will probably always be my favorite - if you found a liqour store out there that sells it, I might have to send you some cash to pick me up a bottle. I hate paying $8 a shot for that stuff. But I still do...

    Jameson is indeed fine for the price, and is the best Irish I've found for every day (okay, not every day!) drinking. My tastes usually run to Teacher's Highland Cream blended scotch whisky (the prices of truly decent singe-malts are outrageous!) and Evan Williams black label bourbon.

    Yeh single malt is outrageously costly...........thats why its called "nectar of the Gods"
    I had my first exposure to it when I was stationed at Prestwick. Was told how to drink it properly......inhale the aroma,sip, slowly, hold in mouth then swallow, went down like honey, no harsh burning, no retching, "like swallowing a bit of heaven,ain't it laddie? an old Scotsman sitting next to me said.........and it was that.
    I buy a bottle of GOOD single malt each year for my birthday, my personal reward, rarely share it, but the times I have shared it I always make a convert from blended stuff

    Indeed, all whiskies benefit from this approach. Whisk(e)y isn't made to chug. If one wants to get hammered blind, then by all means knock 'em back and be poorer in the experience and the brain cells for the privilege.

    I used to drink whisky-and-Coke until one night during a party when I got so ragingly sick I vowed never again to adulterate my beverages. I'll take my dram unsullied, thanks.

    This is true but Jameson is a Wiskey.

    I like Paddy's too.

    The top whiskey of the distillery that makes Paddy's and Jameson's is a whiskey called Midleton. I would think you'd have to pay around $100 for a bottle...

    The word "whiskey" comes from Irish.
    "Uisce beatha" translates as "water of life".
    The word "uisce" was pronounced like "whiskey" in the past, but in modern Irish, it's pronounced like "ish-ke", with the same word stress as the English word.
    ("Beatha" is pronounced somewhat like "bah-ha".)

    RedBreast is a beaut. Easily worth the money.

    Jameson 1780 is also very very nice.

    If you have a hankering to tour a bit around the various derivatives, check out http://www.whiskymag.com/ --

    mmmm, whisk(e)y

    As for locals (bourbons), I love the small batch bourbons: Knob Creek, Basil Hayden's and Booker's ....

    And music and beer and women. So why do they fight over religion?

    Yes. I like the single malt Islay types-- Oban especially. Very peaty, seawater essence.

    I like to "slow" mine down with a splash of cool spring water.

    If you like it smokey, try Scapa from the Orkneys. I am also a big Highland Park fan. That is some of the smoothest scotch I have tried.

    LaFroig is about the smokiest single malt I've ever had. Love the single malts, but they are pretty pricey. As far as blendeds, nothing beats Dalrymple Pinch. Slightly orangy flavor. Yummy for the price.

    Read a great article about Scotches in Esquire years ago. One distiller said that opening a distillery for a single malt is like opening a restaurant, hiring the staff, getting the food prepared, setting the tables, and waiting 12 years for your first customer.

    When I drank I preferred Old Crow in the large economy bar sized 1/2 gallon jug.
    About 13.50 for 1/2 Gallon back then !
    Pop the E-Z pour thingee out and just start chugging away. The jug is made of plastic
    so when you polished off the first 750ml's and got a case of the dropsies you would
    never have to suffer the horror of losing the precious life fluid due to a broken bottle.

    I also though Jack Daniels was for poseurs.....definately an example of image over
    quality.
