Happy World Whisky Day everyone

It's the day to celebrate, and with whisky. I'll be having some Bowmore or Laphroaig tonight. Will anyone else celebrate with this nectar of life?

http://worldwhiskyday.com/ (last time I checked their server was overloaded, might work intermittently. In the meantime, BBC has got it covered, as usual http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-scotland-north-east-orkney-shetland-17515210 ).

I think I have some Bell's, which isn't great - although I may yet discover that I have some Bowmore stored away at the bottom of my cupboard for just this kind of special occasion.

Edit: Okay, it's Famous Grouse, not Bell's; not a huge fan. How disappointing.

Don't worry, I used to mix mine with Coke before I found the Whisky Lovers thread.

Coke is a waste of good whisky, reserve it for rum and poprocks.

Water is the way forward.

Indeed. I was young and foolish... [It was two months ago] Now I usually take it neat, but sometimes I'll add a teaspoon of water as well, if I'm not feeling to frisky.

Anyhoo, dis song. Not Scottish but close enough;

Try something from the Old Bushmills Distillery.Its the oldest licensed distillery in the world and it makes some fantastic whiskey.Irish whiskey isnt smoked so its a bit different than scotch.

Kudos for the trad version of it but can you top streams of whiskey?

Hey I said I let you off the hook

IMO whisky is much more difficult to drink when you've mixed it with something. It often tastes bland and watered down. Taking it straight gives you a nice burning sensation.

Drink it straight for a while and you'll get used to it. Some whisky does benefit from a drop of water or so, but don't overdo it.

I haven't noticed that sensation in ages, and when I do it normally stops happening after the first glass.

How's the 18 y o? I've got the 10 y o right now which is nice, but sometimes I feel it's a bit too salty.

Try coughing while drinking and it'll be back in no time
