These days I find I like the idea of whisky is better than actual whisky.

I like Irish whiskey, Scotch single malt whisky and recently tried a little American number called Knob Creek which I thought was an excellent name and a very good offering.

If you can get your hands on it, try Woodford Reserve. Excellent stuff.

Personally, I've been on a scotch kick lately. Anyone recommend a good one besides the old standards?

Blanton's, Macallans, Oban... none of the Four Roses crap everybody gets excited about out of the US.. here it is swill. Sazerac is the best. Kentucky rye. Hard to find outside of the Bluegrass. Sorry for you.

Agreed! Maker's is my "go to" bourbon. Can't live in Kentucky without loving Maker's. I also love Knob Creek. None of that Tennessee junk though (Jack Daniel's)! :0

Of course, who else would have time to post stuff on a forum all day?

Great in mixed drinks but a bit too sweet for my taste straight up. Lagavulin is the nectar of the Gods, but an older Glenmorangie goes down really smoothly neat.

I get excited about the Four Roses crap too! Like in "Puking All Over"-excited... It was the first "whisky" I tried (when I was young). After that experience I couldn't drink anything remotely called "whisky" for 15 years... Then I saw the light when I tasted some good scotch single malt. :-)

Some of my favorites:

Scapa (one of the best I've ever had), Talisker, Laphroaig (especially the older ones, like 17yo - very different from the 10yo), Oban, Arbeg, Lagavulin, Glengoyne (very nice, non-smokey but still with a lot of flavour - perfect choice for a giveaway whisky if you're not sure if the receiver likes smokey whiskies or not).


And some that I don't like very much:

Auchentoshan (doesn't taste much), Glenmorangie (same tiny taste, and an aftertaste I don't like), Bowmore (don't like the aftertaste).

I like Irish best.

Powers and Paddy are where it's at.

Arbeg is amazing too, i've heard it described as a blend between chocolate, seaweed, wood smoke and salt... sounds awful but I could drink it all day.
