    OT: Whiskey, Bourbon, Scotch

    I recently started getting into the whiskey land after a friend gave me a bottle of Makers Mark. Then I moved onto drinking gallons of Jameson but now I am experimenting. Just bought a thing of Black Label and I am loving it! It has a coffee like taste, almost like a good stout then it finishes with a smokey campfire feeling. I am really liking this Black Label and how it makes me feel like I was just sitting at a campfire.

    Anyone else into whiskey have any knowledge to impart on me?

    P.s. I always drink mine with two / three ice cubes. I was told it "opens up" the flavor.

    I'm partial to Glenlivet Scotch. The 18 year old is very smooth. But I think my favorite is my 34 year old Beam's Choice Bourbon Whiskey. Yes, 34 years old. My better-half's father bought it at 8 years old in '82 and didn't want it anymore. It's damn near the smoothest, best tasting alcohol I've ever had. And it leaves an incredible aftertaste.

    We had a bourbon-tasting among friends back when I was young and foolish (now just foolish). Rebel Yell (107 proof) was a tasty one, I remember. Of course, that's about ALL I remember. After you sample a shot of 7 different bourbons, your memory leaves a bit to be desired.

    Been a single malt Scotch drinker for about 10yrs after visiting London and getting a taste of the good stuff. Fan of the Balvenie, A'bunadh, and pretty much anything else not from Islay. Lately I've been trying out American Bourbons because the dollar is weak and I can't keep track of all the Glenn's. Makers Mark and Johnny Walker are pretty low end, so if you're like that then it will only get better.

    NYTimes had a good article on this recently: http://www.nytimes.com/interactive/2...G_FEATURE.html

    Chivas, Black label, and Jameson!
    this is kind of sad. my first post is booze related.
    definitely an ice cube or a splash of water with your scotch!

    There is a huge debate that seems to be ongoing on the scotch message boards about ice or no ice. Most of the 'purists' prefer no ice. Of course... then ur drinking a room temperature beverage. Most of the 'regulars' will drink scotch and purified water (however there is also debate on what type of water... purified, filtered, tap etc etc) Then theres the squad thats drinking it on the rocks. They don't really ever complain.

    I like Laphroiag for scotch, although it is a stronger flavor than most scotches and a lot of people don't like it. I also like Glenlivet. With no ice! Although occasionally a little bit of water. It doesn't actually seem to water down the scotch, a few drops actually change the flavor instead of making the flavor weaker.

    EDIT: I should add that I also like Jameson, it has a very smooth flavor.

    I had thought Irish whisky much too harsh. Most of it is. Bike clubs members regularily drink Jameson with orange juice. I found it tolerable. Bourbon. much too harsh. For us. Cognac , Armagnac , or brandy thank you.

    for the win!!!



    From Left;
    Glen Breton 10 Yr., Nova Scotia (and yes, its a single malt scotch), Laphroaig 1/4 cask strength, Bowmore Mariner, Balvenie 17 year old new oak, Dalmore 12, Auchentoshan 10, Springbank 10 ( a really smooth malt) Aredbeg 10, Glen Rothes 15 un-chill filtered collection, Macallan Cask Strength, and finally, Jon, Mark and Robbos Malt Scotch Whisky.

    Last week I finished my bottle of Dalwhinnie and Balevenie 12, so they didnt make the picture.

    I want Whiskey. I want Scotch. I want Beer.

    But seriously, I can't stomach either Whiskey or Scotch. I just end up coughing and feeling wheezy like I just drank the stuff for the first time. Beer and Wine are fine, I love the stuff, but the liquors ugh. I wish I could appreciate the stuff more.

    I am a fan of Laphroaig 1/4 cask and Ardbeg, among others.

    Got a buddy with 150+ bottles, he always directs me to what I am looking for in terms of flavor.

    That's one of the great things about whiskey, you can have many bottles open at the same time and leave them like that for months. Can't do that with wine. Whiskey makers are also much more experimental than wine producers. You can get cask strength, oak/port/sherry/madiera barrel aged, double barrel aged, Xyr, etc. It gets gimmicky, but adds variety.

    Whiskey makes me friskey.

    I've been going through bottles of the Tullamore Dew lately. It's "The Legendary Irish Whiskey". So clean and delicious.

    P.S. Hey Noestaecasa, can I come over for a drink? That is one of the finest selections I've ever seen in one home.

    dw you should make him bring cigars atleast

    good to see your still giving the old liver a work out
    I truly believe that a good whiskey is not properly enjoyed without the accompaniment of a fine cigar or pipe
