The only thing you do with a good whiskey is drink it straight, if you're a bit of a wimp then you may be allowed to put a single piece of ice in it.

No adding coke to a good whiskey, that's what Jack Daniels is for.

Balvenie, Talisker, Oban, and anything Isle of Arran for me thank you.

Also, I have a limited Single Malt from the Famout Grouse distillery in Scotland. As part of a celebration they made a single that was matured in Scottish Oak, as opposed to the Spanish Oak regularly used.

It's a lovely little drop, and as a result of purchasing it, my name is now listed on the wall of the distillery.

Love whisky, though ive only ever bought it for other people as gifts, an 18yr old Highland Park for the guitar teacher at school, albeit i chipped in with a pal for it, and a 21yr old Glenfarclas for my brothers 21st. Also got a minature of Yamazaki for my gran to give to my brother as part of his cristmas present. Normally i get offered a glass or get some minatures as a present or something.

Personal favourate for me is Laphroaig, because im slightly mad. Never had an Islay i didnt like in my two years of drinking. Only single malt ive had that i wasnt keen on was a 10yr Aberlour i think. There are a few blended malts i like, though theyre usually used for cooking purposes only. (black bottle in a cranachan seems to work nicely).

I love Jim Beam, Johnny Walker (both in Black Label are best) and Wild Turkey. Chivas Regal is a great fine one. I love drinking Jim Beam, my favourite, straight. Thats how its meant to be.

A dash of lime juice, squeezed freshly from the fruit, goes really, really nicely with a lot of scotch whiskies.

Then of course there is the rusty nail- a shot of whiskey followed by a shot of whiskey liqeur. My favourite has to be Glen Cairn rusties. The liquer is made from sloe berries and honey. Gorgeous.

Whiskey liqueur? Sounds like schnapps or something

It's stuff like Drambuie. Or the fantastically named "Cock of the North"

Penderyn is the whisky for me.
It's a shame good whisky is so expensive though.

Would that juice be added to blended scotch or does it matter?

i used to live right beside the main jim beam distillery. I also hate the taste of any foreign whiskey. if it's not jim beam or jack daniels (both of which I don't like too well, I prefer rum), then i don't drink it.

Nothing mad about it - Laphroaig is my favourite too, has such a rich, complex flavour.

In terms of water, I think that most single malts between 10 and 15 yo don't need any water added, but if you have a particularly smokey or peaty one, or an older dram, then no more than 10% water just gives the flavours room to expand a bit so that you get the full effect of the whisky and don't just have your palate overpowered by the foremost flavours. Sounds pretentious as hell, but in practice means that you get far more out of your more expensive malts. Cheers

MY favourites have to be Jameson and Chivas Regal. Then the occasional Jack Daniel's and Jim Beam. Anything goes, really, but i must say i prefer Irish whiskey and Scotch.

I have a question - can whisky go off? there's been several occasions I've had a bottle, drank half of it and when I came back to the other half, It seems to taste different. like, sweet, but not in a nice way.
