The Whiskey Thread
« on: May 18, 2012, 10:18:14 AM »
What are your favorites? Any type: bourbon, Tennessee whiskey, scotch, Irish, rye, etc.

For a sub-$50 single malt scotch, I really like Macallan 10 fine oak.

Had Willett bourbon for the first time the other day. One of the smoothest I've ever had. I think anyone could drink it neat.  :lick:

Some day when I have something really big to celebrate I'm gonna get a bottle of Johnny blue.   :excited:

Anybody ever had Pappy VanWinkle? I hear good things.

Breckenridge Bourbon is really good for its age.  Won top 3 at some international spirits thing in London.

Pappy VanWinkle is usually only available during the holiday season. They ship out based on population, so kansas hardly gets any at all.  If you want to try one I'd reserve it at a liquor store soon.

My pallet really isn't developed enough to appreciate or distinguish a good single malt. 

Johnny Red (or literally any other type of scotch) tastes great to me.  Don't know if it's a blessing or a curse.

I usually get W.L. Weller or Knob Creek if I'm drinking bourbon, but I almost never touch the stuff.

it wasn't until my senior year at KSU that i developed my taste for good scotch.  i remember the exact party- it was a bachelor party (hosted by me) featuring two of Dr. Love's finest.

I love Crown Royal. I started drinking it in college and I have tried much more expensive stuff, but it is what I stock. Knob Creek is also very good. Not a hug scotch drinker, but I do have a couple of bro-in-laws that I will drink it with.

You from Nemaha County? I once heard that Nemaha County drank more Old Charter per capita than in other place in the world.
Oh yeah, I also like Charter, which is why someone from Nemaha County told me that.

Not from nemaha, should clarify I drink the ten year, the eight year is disgusting.

I think I had that a couple of years ago and liked it. The problem is that I might have one or two when I try something different, and that is just not enough to switch me from my beloved CR.

Bourbon all the way for me.  Enjoy scotch, but haven't had enough to know much about it.

Cheap: Evan Williams (black label)
Good: Maker's Mark or 1792

All my close friends prefer whiskey to any other liquor. Whenever they get a round of shots, they make order 1 tequila, and x number of whiskey shots. The tequila for me, because whiskey is gross.

Vodka drinkers are tougher than whiskey drinkers, despite popular opinion to the contrary.
