    Jameson.
     
  2. They are making Cigar Malt again but it is a different recipe than previously. For about $100 a bottle it also costs a lot more.
     
  3. Drunk. :p

    Elijah Craig 12yo bourbon. I'd had their 18yo and been blown away. The 12 is ballsier but has several levels of flavor I am just discerning. Not badly priced either ($21 the fifth at Surdyk's in Minneapolis).

    Whiskey and coke? Please tell me that's just bourbon your drinking and not fine single malt, otherwise I may just weep.

    It's whatever was cheapest at the Pick 'n Save. Wakefield Family or some such. Some sort of blended whiskey, I think it said on the label. I dunno, I'm typically a beer guy lol

    Still finishing the Cabernet/Syrah blend I bought a few days back.
    Winding down from chores? Sounds like a good plan to me.

    Hi Sloan

    You might want to weep just a little for Venezuela. A college friend (whom I haven't heard from since) says that South Americans drink Scotch and Coke. Personally I'd gag, I swear. I don't have any Coke or I'd try it in the Famous Grouse just to see what it would be like. Don't worry, Coke ain't touching the Taliskers or the Liaphrog (spelling).

    If I recall, a few years ago Bells tried to market a ready-mixed whisky and coke concoction, but it died a swift death. I think the more ersatz blended ones try to market themselves this way to appeal to a younger palate, but it's daft. Single malt whiskies are the reward you get for realising that sickly sweet shooters and other such nastiness are just wrong and that there's more to alcohol than just intoxication :D. Oh, and I cannot think of a more obnoxious mixture than Leapfrog and any soft drink. A drop of water, that's all you need.
     
  12. lol lol lol Oh.
    What kind of whiskey?
     
  13. Makes sense to me. There are also so many different flavors from the different producing regions that you can certainly find a single malt for any taste---straight. I don't even add water unless I can get the water that it was made with. :p

    Some do, some don't, but drop of water can help 'open up' a very strong, concentrated whisky, like a lot of the Islay ones, and make it a less eye-watering experience. :D

    The Bow Bar in Edinburgh (on one of those crescents just below the Castle) is my favourite Scotch drinking spot. The aromas wafting round that place are simply intoxicating! They have some nice beer as well!:D;)
