"Whisky to a Scotsman is as innocent as milk to the rest of the human race"
- Mark Twain

Do you have a favourite Whisky (mind you: not Whiskey! I am speaking of Scottish Whisky only!)?

My favourites are Laphroaig (http://www.laphroaig.com/home.asp) and Glenfiddich (http://www.glenfiddich-whisky.co.uk/). Drunken of course without ice but with a good mild cigar. Perfect. :scotland

Bah, vodka is for sissies.
Where I come from(Trøndelag) We are famous for drinking home-brewed stuff which is about 96% alcohol. THAT is strong shit, and we drink that too often, sometimes with coffee.

If it comes to Whisky, I prefer Aberlour. :thumbup

Back in the day my idea of fancy drinking was The Dalmore. At around 70 bucks a bottle it better be.

a CIGAR? :|

I have an 18yo Macallan special reserve (or something like that) that is extremely good. My all around favorite right now is the 18yo Highland Park. Highland Park is distilled in Kirkwall, Orkney. Awesome stuff.

I have simple tastes. Jameson does me.

But after diluting it with coffee it isn't 96% anymore, it's alcopops - as drunk by schoolgirls and ravers! :P

I like the 12yo Jameson as well, but don't call it "Scotch" to an Irishman. Irish Whiskey is distilled 3 times as opposed to twice with Scotch. Jameson is also a blend..

I'm sorry to contradict you, but I prefer vodka because it's smoother and I cannot handle whisky/whiskey. Sorry.....

Lagavullin if I'm in a fiery mood, or Cragganmore for a smoother finish.

A good Welsh whisky is Penderyn, for those interested: http://www.welsh-whisky.co.uk

As suits my age, I have learned many of my Favorites..........
I like Glen Morange,(sic spelling), for Whisky.
I'm partial the Jamisons Reserve, for Irish Whiskey.
I Love Jim Beam for Bourbon.
And, Padrone is great Tequila.
Crown Royal is a great Canadian Drink.
AALBORG is wonderful Akavit.
Tangeray is a great Gin.

I can spend some time with a couple old Friends, and sip the
evening away, as we talk of other places, old loves and better, or
worse times we've had.
Bottles are best shared.;)

I love everything from Islay especially from the southern part of the island…Laphroaig 15 (although no longer available), Lagavulin 12 (yearly limited cask strength release) and Ardbeg (both the Arigh and the Ugi) are my absolute favorites. Laphroaig 10 is my daily dram and is a very fine dram at a reasonable price. I also like Talisker 10 (even had the 30 for my birthday this year) and if I don’t want the peat I go with Highland Park or Scapa.

Mostly Islays like Lagavulin, Laphroaig, and Bowmore, but also Speysides like Knockando.

A cigar is nice with them. My poison of choice would be a Montecristo or a Romeo y Julieta.

I've tried so hard to get into whisky - or "scotch" as it's colloquially referred to over in Canada - but every time, it just bites right back. Whiskey, on the other hand, is marvelous.

Grimsteinr mentioned Crown Royal as being a great Canadian whiskey - horseapples. It's not fit to clean the paint from my brushes. Try Forty Creek. That's a whiskey with some friggin' hair on it's chest.

Gibson's Finest is also a fine choice - much lighter, and smoother, but oh so good.

Scottish Leader is off my list as it is imported and distributed by Distell


The Ruperts also partially control two of South Africa's largest wine merchant houses, Stellenbosch Farmers' Winery (SFW) and Distillers Corporation, who together produce one of every six bottles of wine in South Africa and nearly eighty percent of the country's brandy. These two companies have merged to form Distell.

The Ruperts had a major hand in the distruction of my folk.

Bell's then for me... ;)

Atholl Brose - I just tried my hand at making this: I'm VERY impressed, to say the least (not at my brilliant genius, but the end flavour result). I'm looking forward to refining this preparation; has anyone else tried making it themselves? I'm interested to hear if anyone else has tried toasting the oats beforehand, different honeys in the final stages, what whisk(e)y was used, etc.
