^ bought a bottle of that myself. Real good inexpensive bourbon. Goes great with honey


I've never tried bourbon with honey. Sounds like something I'm going to have to throw together tonight

I think I had the jack daniels honey and that was too much. Most premade drinks are. The worst being crown royal maple. It was as if they literally took a bottle of syrup, poured out 1/4th of it, and then filled that bit with whiskey.


All those drinks would probably be great for grilling though.

I drank Jim Beam Red Stag when I lived in the States, sweet, goes down like lemonade. Also great to drink at 10am with coke in Vegas

I had the cinnamon kind once. It wasn't too bad and I was ill at the time so that helped. Tasted like liquid big red. Went good with coffee.

last month purchases:



cleaned out the nikka really quick. wasn't keen on it, so wanted it gone. it's not bad just needs a fair bit of water to be worth while, mostly due to the 51.4% (then again I've had 55% that are nice neat before) which is a bit of a hassle when I prefer drinking neat. also wanted an excuse to go back to the store soon to pick up a glenmorangie quinta ruban (possibly a nectar d'or too)

looking forward to the glendronach. not really tried sherried whisky/speyside (islay + standard highland have been my go to) but it got best of 2014 award from my whisky shop, and a glenfarcas got 2013, so I'm curious what all the fuss is about with sherry casks.
O.K.

Sherried whisky is awesome. The Lagavulin DE that I got on my birthday was finished in sherry casks.

FYI

If anyone wants to take a chance by following words from a meaningless online forum member, then buy Knob Creek Rye whiskey. I was blown away.

I recently got this, and it's well worth the cash. Really, really smooth, delicate flavour.



Single Cask/Small Batch series...

A Selection of the finest Scottish Single Malt Whisky
The range is made up of carefully selected Single Casks
from Scotland’s legendary distilleries
Some of which are not normally available.

Provenance is Bottled in the traditional style – not coloured, not chill-filtered and typically at 46% strength
I got the Glen Moray 12y/o, but will probably try Aultmore next.

lagavulin 16y/o

Yummy yummy...
Tried some of this and holy shit. Bursting with flavours. Incredibly strong but every 'side' to whiskey fades in and out with each swing. Loved it.

I've got a Scotch, a Bourbon, and a Brandy. They're all about to be cherry wood infused!

It's still toasting in the oven, but when it comes out I'll let it soak for a few days and give them a tasting. Not sure how long I'll end up soaking them, but I'm giving one away as a graduation gift.

Sounds great, I look forward to hearing how they come out.

I hadn't bought any whisky in a little while and my collection was starting to slowly shrink, which isn't desirable. I've started to counter that today by picking up another bottle of Lagavulin. It's been quite a while since I finished my last one, really was time I got another. I'm currently working my way through a Glenmorangie Original and a Highland Park 12.

It's pretty nice, can def taste the sherry, elevates the typical "plain" flavour that makes most highland a little boring for me. Can't quite say how it stands up to other sherried whiskies due to lack of experience there, but I like it enough that I think I'll be regularly buying them alongside my usual Islays


Finished Four roses single barrel quite quickly, was very good but I weirdly prefer the cheaper ,"lower end" the small batch, not sure if that's just because the single barrels could be more hit and miss from bottle to bottle. Only have Glendronach left for any kind of whiskies so what with getting paid yesterday I'll be getting some new bottles.

Thinking of getting Glenmorangie Nector d'or in place of my usual bourbon/rye purchase and then some kind of Islay, something I haven't tried much of (usually get Ardbeg, Lagavulin or Laphroaig), possibly Bunnahabhain.

My Lagavulin distillers edition was sherry casked, and I love it, but most reviewers tend to like the regular better. I can't compare because I haven't had the regular version, though.

Theres also Caol Ila; I've been very interested to try something from them, but I would really recommend the Bruichladdich Port Charlotte (scottish barley, heavily peated). IMHO, it gives the Lagavulin a run for it's money at half the price.

Just had myself a good Saturday evening doing a run of Glenmorangies. I've had the four bottles for a while, but it's only recently that I've opened them all.

Started with the 15 Nectar d'Or, then the 12 Quinta Ruban, followed by the 12 Lasanta and finally the 10 Original.

I meant to compare them as I went, but I ended up just enjoying the whisky.

there's a bottle of the sherry cask in my local and I'm desperate to get it, BUT there's a 12yr distillers choice in there as well. There's also a £300 limited bottle of something that is allegedly smokier than Lagavulin and I really want it

The regular version is far less sweet, and much more iodene-y in flavour.
#1497
is anyone else a fan of the real bottom of the barrel shit?
over here we have this shit called Philadelphia, couple bucks a bottle.
tastes like canned heat strained through dirt, but theres just something about it. its a good candidate for a wine spotiote.
something about a cheap ass whiskey, its just kind of comforting to me. maybe just reminds me of good times, hanging out with my brother and friends when i was 14, sipping on whatever we could get our hands on. kind of a nostalgia thing.
am i alone on this?
#1498
I don't mind White&Mackay if I want to get drunk. That's my hip-flask stuff.

If £30 a bottle is still considered cheap, I enjoy Laphroaig and Glenfiddich.
