    LOVE me some whiskey! prefer bourbon though.

    when i'm feeling like spending a little more than usual i reach for this excellent drank:



    but lately my regular go to is this guy:



    some people scoff at using bourbon in a manhattan but buffalo trace mixes up beautifully in a perfect manhattan with a twist

    Finished my Blanton's and my Knob Creek Rye, so went with this. It is highly recommended!

    Single Malt only and Islay if possible. Lagavulin and Ardbeg, yes.

    Right now we're trying this one:



    Bruichladdich, Islay Single Malt, 10 years

    It's surprisingly well rounded for a 10 year old and still it is kinda wild. (Sometimes it's more challenging to drink a younger Whiskey that isn't that well behaved like the old ones.) Curious to try the older Bruichladdichs when this bottle is finished. As long as it's summer I don't feel like drinking Whiskey though. More like this:

    I'm definitely on that Macallan 12. Love it.

    I like a little bit of Laphroaig every once in a while, but not enough to actually go buy a bottle of it.

  • Got a bottle of this on sale for $20. Pretty damn smooth, especially for 92 proof


  • I'm generally a Bushmill's guy and I love an occasional Basil Hayden, but in my neck of the woods no one has a conversation about whiskey without singing the righteous praises of this stuff.


    If you haven't tried it I whole heartedly recommend it! :beerbang:

    here are my bottles....glenfarclas is the best i cant wait to cop the 25


    bassie
    that t?? bheag is such a good blend for the value...since the distillery is located super close to talisker's it like 70% talisker for half the price
    anyone who only drinks jameson will get their mind blown with this for a few dollars more

    Have you tried the Black Bottle? Best blended I've had.

    Watch there be a Sideways 2: This time it's Scotch

    it's called Angel's Share, and it's mediocre.

    btw.

    this my shit


  • Bulleit is the shit.

    For scotch, I most often pour Oban.

    As a gift, I received a bottle of Highland Park Thor, which is insanely good and makes me cry that I have to ration it so carefully.

    Bulleit is good, but the best under $30 bottle I've tried is:


    Tastes like it should cost much much more.

    my new favourite


  • Nice thread, lots of gold! Very envious of the range of ryes and Bourbons available in America and their prices. By the time they get to Australia, even the entry level stuff has swelled significantly in price. Funnily enough, as I type, I'm working my way through some Baker's 7yo. Around the A$80 mark if I remember correctly. On the upside, word is it's easier to get the ultra-rare Pappy van Winkle gear down under than stateside, only we pay significantly more than you guys do.

    Recently tried some of this. The Chardonnay finish makes it very smooth.



    Also been enjoying this....

    Holed-up indoors with this



    It's some good sheeet, mang. Is cask-strength the term they use for stronger whisky's? So necessary imo as I was drinking that Glenlivet French Oak reserve like it was very tasty water.

    This has been my go-to lately.



    Still have an unopened bottle of this for a special occasion. :necessary:

    Buffalo Trace & Knob Creek have both become reasonably easy to find in bars over here now (UK), I think I prefer the Trace (just). I only know of one bar that serves Blanton's though

    Sorry man, I have to disagree. I have a bottle, and I think it represents a lot that's wrong with non-distiller producers. This is just generic MGP juice--a giant commercial distillery in Indiana that makes a lot of the whiskey that goes into brands that don't distill, like Templeton. The marketing is goofy, and is pretty intent on conveying that Templeton is distilled in Iowa or wherever in some fancy old style. Pure bs. There's nothing inherently wrong with packaging spirit you don't distill, but there's a lot wrong with pretending you distill when you don't.

    Anyway, I'd take a lot over this. At this pricepoint, Willet Family Reserve for days.
