X2 on Glenmorangie as a great scotch, I have a 25yr bottle, it is sooo smooth and should be savored, but I have never tasted a bad Scotch Malt, Been to a lot of distilleries in Scotland including Glenmorangie and enjoyed them all, especially the free samples. We have been to Scotland many times, never tire of travelling there, but once back in the late 80s we visited a small distillery near Balmoral Castle. They had a cask of malt in reserve for Charlies coronation and it was distilled in the year of his birth. Now that will be some drink when they open the barrel. (I doubt peons like most of us RVers will get a sniff of it but I would love to get the chance.)

By the way I don't drink wiskey often, but when I do it is usually pure Scotch Malt. Love sitting in my lazyboy beside a fireplace on a cold day with music in the background or reading while sipping on "neat" single malt. I have a few dozen bottles of malt in my home bar. I have had some of them for about 25 years and they were purportly 12-18 yrs old when purchased. (Don't really know if they get better with age in the bottles, have not noticed any difference.)

Oh I also have a couple of bottles of Jim Beam and Johnny Walker Blue for some of my less discerning visitors, and a bottle of Connemara, Single Malt Irish Whiskey, it is smooth and most certainly challanges the best Scotch I have tasted.

Anyone who does not drink a good scotch or any eingle malt neat, well, what can I say except eek. I wittnesed a person ordering a scotch and coke once. Now that is blasphemy to a scotch connoisseur.

Ha! Haven't thought of that thread in a while. I did include the "e" mostly by mistake but as it turns out - many scotch drinkers enjoy Irish - KY and TN sippin too - so it made sense not to ask for a Mod to change it. And here we are again proving with or without the "e" there is much to enjoy!

For Irish Whiskey, I'm partial to Red Breast. The 12 year is fine, the 15 is better. As for Bourbon, well, my first choice is Booker's on ice, Basil Hayden's is very good, as is Blanton's, but in different ways. Buffalo Trace is my favorite for mixing cocktails, followed by Bulleit. I've not developed a taste for Canadian whiskey, but maybe I just haven't found the right one yet :-)

Haven't seen it mentioned yet but right now what Thom has on the alcohol shelf is a bottle of 12 yr old Aberlour Highland Single Malt Scotch Whisky (yes that's how its spelled on the label).
And while not a single malt scotch he also has a bottle of Templeton Rye Whiskey made in Templeton, Iowa. It's supposed to be a prohibition era recipe made with the recipe that Al Capone liked and served in his speakeasies.

Re the spelling - no "e" Scotch - "e" everything else as I recall, but who's got the next round is priority 1.

If you drink "wiskey", or even whiskey, you can pretty much guarantee it's NOT a single malt Scotch - by definition if it comes from Scotland it's whisky! Some will argue that the spelling is meaningless, but a true Scot will argue with you - and then offer up a dram

Once it leaves the barrel it's done. While it does get older in the bottle, it does not "age" any more. If the bottle is not tightly sealed the alcohol can evaporate and change the flavor somewhat, but buying a bottle of 12 year and letting it sit in your bar for 13 years does not make it the equal of a 25-year from the same distillery.

Alan, you got me on the typos. Creating posts from my phone often causes my fingers to wander and there is no spell check with the IRV2 App. Small screens sometimes make it difficult to catch typos also. Good catch. I know how to spell "whisky". It is on every bottle.

Thanks for the info. As I said, I have never noticed any difference in drinking 12 year old scotch that has been sitting on my shelf for 20 years from a "new" bottle of 12 year old scotch.

How do you guys have bottles that sit that long on the shelf? Mine never seem to make it past a few weeks!

Right on about the next round,

If you look at a "Canadian Club" or "Crown Royal" (both rye whisky) you will see it without the "e". But there is an "e" in the Irish Whiskey bottles I have as well as Jim Beem.

Go figure
