I just bought my first bottle of Buffalo Trace after learning from a bartender it's the less expensive sibling to my favorite, Eagle Rare.
Highland single malts are always a pleasure.
Why do some of you say they're not whiskey?
I'm a big fan of Eagle Rare. It's reeeealy smooth. Best I've ever had.
Most liq's in Seattle sell it.
I'm always glad to drink someone's Maker's Mark or Knob Creek but I can get by happily on Old Rip Van Winkle or Rebel Yell without the lust for something else.
Oh... winter time! good thread!
I love Laphroaig... the flavor is pretty special...
another one is Johnny Walker Blue Label. quite expensive, but every once of awhile I feel I need a small sip...
Crown Royal is my brand of anti-freeze, had some tonight while beach fishing for sea runs! Brrrrrrrrrr-sip-ahhhhhh
Now that I'm no longer limited to the WA State Liquor monopoly, I might try and few of the suggested spirits.
Scotch=whisky (Canadian too?)
Burbon, other American styles and Irish =whiskey
Makers Mark, Dickel, Jim Beam for giving to Old Man when he drives to the Hoh Down. He'll drink your whiskey but still give you an earful.
Stranahans, not easy to come by in these neck of the woods but a great addition to the shelf. Made a bit like scotch, aged like bourbon and a great tasting whiskey. I may be biased though as I just moved here from CO and not cheap but a great company too. You can volunteer at the distillery and they give you a bottle as "payment" after a hard day's work.
Although I did enjoy some Jameson the other day as a couple of us polished off the Gun Club's supply of Pendleton.
I'm pretty much a straight Jameson guy. Fell in love with it at Doyle's pub and haven't really looked back. Have bottles of Jack, Crown, and a few others up in my liquor cabinet that only come out for mixed drinks.
Onto whiskeys and whiskys, I've tried alot. Tried quite a few Scotchs. I like the Irish whiskeys much better. It's all in your tastes. The Scotchs have a more peaty/boggy flavor to them. Like that nice clean taste of a good shot of Jameson. That's just me. BUT, I do need to go back to Scotland to reconfirm my tastes (and this time head to Ireland to sample as well).
Speyfisher; enjoyed your post [#22] cool story, thanks.
freestoneangler, interesting signature line for a preferred whiskey thread ..lol..
Always enjoy these discussions ..new friends of old friends.. and a fresh hit list to pursue.
Word for me. I can get Glenfiddich as low as $23 on sale locally. If I'm feeling flush, McCallan's is $45 at Costco; for that special ocassion, it's Oban at $58.
You would be in for a shock if you ever came to BC and saw the prices we pay....
