    I have tried it. Its good, but don't let the smokey label fool you. Its no Islay. Hard not to compare it to an Islay since it is smokey. Its worth a try. That said, I have only bought one bottle, and probably won't buy another. However, if I saw it at a bar, or somebody gave me a bottle, I would not turn it down. Try it and let me know what you think.

    Tonight, a special treat. Port Ellen 36 Douglas Laing. Tasty......
     
  4. I'm not much of a rye drinker because of the spice. Even with Irish whiskey I prefer Green Spot or Redbreast over Jameson; less spice & not as sweet. So I haven't bought any of the High West Ryes but their Campfire Whiskey blend sounds intriguing enough.

    You probably won't like it, since it does have the spiciness of rye, but its worth a try. It is an interesting dram for sure.

    Have you ever tried any Springbank? Its a wonderful distillery.
     
  6. I have had the Rum Wood 12 but Springbank is hard to get, at least for me. They have some close connection to Cadenhead & Cadenhead buys most of Springbanks product to be used in some of Cadenheads blends. That new blended Scotch "Monkey Shoulder" is a blend of Cadenhead, Springbank, & Kininvie single malts. Cadenhead does own Kininvie. I didn't care for Monkey Shoulder enough to buy a bottle but you might want to try it.

    Sinus infection has me seriously slowed down. That is the only excuse I have.

    The Exxon down the street don't really have the most stellar selection...and when you factor in 8.1% abv for under $3, within walking distance........

    Good point. That should do the trick!
    I have never had the Steel Reserve, but in college I was very familiar with OE 800, Colt 45, St. Ides, and the like. I would have to say my favorite was Mickeys. Especially the "green grenades". Haven't seen those up here in years.

    A few places around here have Mickey's in tall boy cans, but I haven't seen the bottles in a long time either. As far as Malt liquors go, Steel Reserve isn't any better (or too much worse) than any of those others you mentioned, but it is the highest abv so definately more bang for the buck. It absolutely no way around it has to be ICE F***ING COLD though.
