guys, not gays i mean :mrgreen: , what's your favourite whiskey?
as for me i'm a whiskey man, drink almost exclusively only whiskey with some good black tea besides.
now just this year i found 'lagavulin' so it kinda made my summer, actually i drank once the double matured one and 40 ml cost me like 20 euros!
besides 'lagavulin' i love 'talisker' - both with them smoky taste, well, and caol ila isn't the worst though less smoky.
so yeah, whiskey (single malt) in a glass, tea (black) in a cup and a good smoke.
p.s. as i'm not rich and drink pretty often, i must buy these cheap blended whiskeys for which i have no great love, but still they get me where i belong :mrgreen:

I don't drink whiskey anywhere near as often as I did some eight years ago. Some names and thay're just off the top of my head right now are Grapa and various scotchs. There are others but the names are a bit distant to me right now but will say them later once I think about it and come back on here

Well seeing as Im being labelled as "gay" lately............I shall redeem myself with talk of mans drink! :mrgreen:

Im a big spirits man, its pretty much all I drink and whiskey and rum are my drinks of choice.

Whiskey has to be Makers Mark and pretty much any single malt Scotch whiskey.............Johnny Walker too, although I do enjoy the occasional Jack on the rocks too.

Rum, I like the spiced rums...............Morgans Spiced (not Captain Morgans) is the best.

well as far as the fine whiskie goes i cant speak on it.....
depending on how much i want to spend
low price .... jack
moderate gentleman.... jack
higher single barrel jack and double barrel... jack

i drink it neat no ice no soda.
if im in a bar... shots with beer backing it up.
if out to diner .... to save the helper time i or a double in a tumbler
and sip it with a beer to back it up.
if im out in the forest , or at a raiders game .. right out of the pipe .
at the warriors games...i sneak in a 16 oz plastice bottle of coke and
pour three quarters of the coke out then fill with jack, this and one beer can last a game for me.

Does scotch count?

If so I vote for Glenfiddich - that stuff can remove paint.

The best whiskey story I ever heard was that someone found a bottle of some legendary ancient whiskey in a building that was being torn down. This was the only existing bottle. Shots were sold off at $900 each and people flew into Scotland from all over the world for this opportunity.

I can appreciate almost any drink from the floral notes of gin to the murky smoke of scotch. I like rums of every kind and tequila is fine, too. I can remember when tequila was cheap.

I like cocktails, especially the old-school ones. I had a 1944 Mai Tai, using the exact ingredients of that era. Outstanding.

My most exotic bottle is an almost-gone bottle of absinth, smuggled in from the Czech Republic. It would be cool to have all the specialized hardware to serve it properly.

Yeah I know all scotch is technically whiskey Bigs but some people get really stuck up about it. I mean, if some people want to get really anal they'll say this is an Irish only choice since it is a "Whiskey" thread versus a "Whisky" thread which would be scotch exclusively.

For instance I wasn't sure if people were sticking to straight single distilled whiskeys or if it was opened up to include Bourbons and other branches.
