Water? Are you out of your mind?! What d you drink, blended?! Humph!

Just so you know, the 'proper' way to drink whiskey (obviously it differs according to your taste, but if you're going to cry 'heretic' at drinking it with water...) is 2 parts water to one part whiskey.

I like my Jack, but not straight mind.

I was reading up on Jameson's and found this: Interestingly, the bar that sells the most Jameson whiskey annually is located in Minneapolis, Minnesota (USA): in 2008, the Local Irish Pub in Minneapolis sold 671 cases of Jameson, 22 bottles a day.

I guess I'll have to make a trip there to keep their numbers up.

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.



Funny I should see this post while looking over the forums.....I'm enjoying some Whiskey right now!

I started enjoying Crown Royal but it's way too high in price so I looked into JD and Evan Williams. I don't taste much difference between these two and both are priced quite differently in my store so I go with the cheaper Evan Williams at around $13 for a fifth.

I usually enjoy whiskey straight....but have it chilled a little in the fridge.

In honor of this thread, I will partake in some whiskey while lifting weights and listening to some motivational drinking/workout tunes. I hope to be fall down drunk by the end of the workout. Lets hope I don't get hurt.
Cheers!

Do you have any idea what the bar is called? If you say Blarney I am going to shit my pants.

WyldEdit: Nevermind, found out it is The Local. I may have to stop by and give it a shot.

What are everyone's thoughts on J&B? It's my go-to whisky for Whisky-coke, but I don't find it very convincing when you drink it straight.
I wanted to try me some Jameson's, how good is that? Pure and/or with coke?


I only had Jameson's once, and I didn't particularly like it. It was just a bit too 'meh' for me, but then that's to be expected I suppose since I tend to drink Islay single malt scotch, which is generally very peaty and smoky, and quite different to most of the so called whisky that people posting here seem to drink.

A tip for everyone - if it's a whisky people mix with coke it's because it doesn't taste good enough on its own. If you have a good whisky then it's sacrilege to mix it with anything except perhaps a few drops of water.

To all the single malt drinkers in this thread - I love you guys!

To be honest i've never really enjoyed many whiskys and coke mixes :/ it always just seems to ruin it. I'd rather just have the whisky and coke seperate ...

Soco is the closest thing to whiskey i'll put in my mouth.

There should be a vodka thread.

*gasp*

where have you been all my life thread

whisky is the greatest spirit, period.

as a canadian, most of the time I drink rye, CC, Crown Royal, Wisers, Alberta Premium, Gibson's and the like, but I try new varieties whenever I can, as for my favorite, I'm rather partial to Jameson's, I feel it has an almost toffee like taste, so smooth.

I'm going to start trying out different brands of scotch now, as I've worked my way through most of the conventional fare.

This, have any of you guys here ever toured the Jack Daniel's distillery? It pretty inspirational I must say. It also turned me onto Jack Daniel's single barrel, which has now replaced Maker's Mark as my favorite (if im in the mood for some good fine whiskey that is).

Anyone ever notice that Canadian club pre mixes taste amazing, and the straight stuff is very average?

Must be something to do with the cola they use.

Anyway I'm a Jack Daniels man myself. Gentleman Jack Daniels to be specific. I drink it with ice and water, it's amazing

Best. Thread. Ever! JD and GJ are my favourites. I love Irish and Bourbons, but I wasn't overly impressed with Canadian/Rye whiskeys; to be fair, I've only had Crown and Forty Creek in that department. But seriously:

I'd suggest hunting down a bottle of Alberta Premium, it's a true, 100% rye whisky, the rest are blends of different grains.

I'd even drink BEAM over that. BEAM...! If I'm going to drink whiskey I drink any of these (and not that weak JD stuff):]
Lol I didn't mean I sip Jack like it's a privilege to even taste, it's like, my standard; like coffee in the morning. If I'm going to sip something, I'll take-




Also, if you're not a fan of bourbon you probably won't like it, but a single barrel of Jack might suit you better. I have a NC special edition single barrel bottle signed by the master distiller on my shelf.

Just got a bottle of Glenmorangie Lasanta sherry cask matured. I'll report back once I've wakened up tomorrow afternoon. Also been working on some Talisker 10 and Glenlivet 15. lovely stuff. My favourite Irish is Jamesons and I don't know enough about Canadian / American whiskeys to comment other than that, for me, JD and Beam are mixer drinks rather than drinks to really savour.

also, it's spelled Whisky

Well then, if the Canadians use the correct spelling, then they must make good stuff!

there are quite a few Canadian distillers that are Scottish in origin, we actually got in trouble because a Nova Scotia distiller is named "Glen Breton" and the Scottish distillers took offense to the inclusion of the word "Glen"

the company makes scotch, but it isn't called scotch because of where it's made

I'd very much like to try some of this



it's aged in icewine barrels, it's supposed to have a pretty unique taste

The Glenmorangie lasanta was excellent. very rich, full bodied flavour. still prefer Glenlivet 15 though.
