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.

I actually visited the Oban distillery last year, it was totally awesome.

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

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

So I want to get my friend some nice bourbon or scotch ... I'm thinking the $100-$150 range...any advice?
#98
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.

When opened, yes it can. Oxygen will react with the liquid, and noticeable changes will occur once the bottle reaches about 2/3 full. This takes about two years to really happen though. Unopened bottles will not encounter this problem, but unopened whiskies will not "improve" either. All changes should happen in the cask, and if your unopened, or well stored opened, bottle of whiskey changes it's character from the norm, it's been contaminated.

To correctly store a bottle of whiskey, it must be kept upright, and tipped twice a year or so in order to wet the cork. When opened, replace the cork when not being poured, and ideally create a wax seal.

Whiskey is a refined taste that only a few can appreciate. For instance, johnnie walker has a picture of the 'striding man' on it. A man walking forewards, this represents progress and foreward thinking that all good whiskey drinkers can appreciate.

...it's whisky. Not frickin rocket science...

Drinking a drink has nothing to do with foward thinking.

Hello there

Since there's the smoking thread wheezing its way along i thought it would be a good idea to make a whiskey thread for those of us who can appreciate the refined taste of a good strong drink.

So, gather round and regale us with storys and wisdom of all the things to do with whiskey!

As for me , i've found out Hitchens was indeed right, Johnnie Walker black is a lovely thing.


Bourbon whiskey is my drink. I can't name a favorite since I love the taste of many different bottles. Pappy van winkle, Elijah craig single barrel, bulleit, four roses, etc. etc.

I don't buy scotch but wouldn't turn it down if given to me. The taste just isn't as good as bourbon to me.

At Wetherspoons I would always drink Buffalo Trace bourbon with ginger ale. £1.99 all nights of the week. Awesome.

I have not come accustomed to drinking whiskey straight yet though. I should try it with water soon but I am still more of a beer man.

That's one of my favourites. It's very good neat, or with equal parts ginger ale.

I had a cheap bottle of scotch whiskey I kept in a cupboard after opening it for a year or 2. When i went back to drink some more of it I swear it had doubled in strength, it blew my head off.
