    Bought a bottle of Old Crow today and it is really smooth, more so than Evan Williams.

      Believe it or not there is an Old Crow Black label. About $19 a 1.75L.. Haven't tried it. Didn't really think that much of Old Crow to start with.

        Me too, Jameson's in a pinch.


        You will have to try Powers sometime, if you have not already. Wins best Irish for me going away.

          Powers (aka "Paddy" to the Cork natives) is the cheapest anyway. I'm kinda

              Well, I won't drink any whisky that comes in a plastic bottle. And it's gotta have a cork top, with the exception of Bushmills.

              speaking of Bushmills, I tried the 16 y/o multi-barrel single malt. It ends up being my backstop bottle for when I run out of other stuff. I mean, I can't get used to it. All the woody flavor over that Bushmills twang..doesnt seem to make sense..

              One bourbon I want to try is Booker, and this thread has got me curious about a few others.

              Good quality Single Malt Scotch does the trick for me, though, and I've come to have an open mind about them, they're all different, some very different. Compare something like Laphroaig to Talisker for example. Two completely different worlds, and I like them both.

              Caol Ila has come to be my favorite. Greenish in color when it's in the glass. Add a drop or two of water..Somewhat smokey, peaty, and all that other stuff going on. i love it.

              another one I really like is Oban. no peat and smoke, just a lot of flavor.

                Ahhh, good old American Kentucky straight bourbon whiskey here.


                Same here. Straight Kentucky Bourbon for me, thank you. Never "acquired" the taste for Scotch. Lord knows, I've tried! The only way I can drink Scotch is straight, on the rocks. Tried it with soda once or twice. Tasted like nasty medicine to me.

                We had a young Second Lieutenant, back in the 60s, who always came into the "O" Club and ordered coke........neat. We got on him, saying he was a panty-waist for never ordering anything stronger.

                He took us up on the challenge one evening and boldly ordered a Scotch and Coke!! I don't think he ever lived it down. And, he even had the gall to say it tasted good! YUCK!!

Oh, BTW, I forgot to mention my ocarina and maracas.

                  Ya. Bourbon, neat, is too sweet for my tastes. The Basil Haydens and Woodfords are wonderful whiskeys, but I'd honestly rather have them in a Manhattan or Old Fashioned. Sacrilege, I know, but mixed drinks have been my trend this past year. I've gone through more bottles of Bulliet than Scotch. Bourbon is better to take camping, too. This year's surprisingly affordable Single Malt has been the Glenlivet Nadurra.

                    Tastes like ipecac to me--the stuff that makes you vomit.

                    So...I'm the safest person to have stash your scotch bottle. The only way I am going to open it is if I need an emergency disinfectant or alcohol lamp fuel!

                    And single malt Irish? Same as Scotch!

                    I'll stick to bourbon, rum, tequila (Chenaco Anejo--yum), Grey Goose, brandy and gin.

                      I only drink Scotch. Gotta be single malt and 12 years old or older. Macallan, Talisker & Dalwhinnie are my trilogy.
                      Had some Knob Creek the other day w/ a friend. Not bad, but nowhere near, to me, the quality of the afore mentioned.

                        Don't like Bourbon. Only drink Scotch, single malt. Glenmorangie is very good.

                          Though I could probably use a sniff of the stronger stuff every now and then (parenthood has been a really tough job lately which reminds me of a funny line in National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation) I prefer to keep my imbibing limited to a bottle of beer every other day or so to take the sharp edge off the day. After doing a short stint in the Navy and having a run-in with the law in college I kind of swore off the harder stuff before it really became a problem. Nowadays though my wife and I will enjoy a bottle of wine or two with friends who come over after we put the kids to bed - we rarely can get a babysitter to handle our special needs child. On those occasions we usually have either a riesling or a merlot. Nothing too fruity. I prefer the reds anyway because it's good for the blood.

                            Sunday, I finally had a Manhattan made with Bulleit Rye Whiskey. And man-o-man am I a convert! I'd heard that Rye was the traditional way to make a Manhattan but just hadn't ever ordered one. It gives the drink a nice crisp bite that it was missing.

                                But I'll certainly second Oban
