Whisky

My Wife has always liked single malt scotch whisky but it has alway gave me the dry heaves. I guess that comes from my young and crazy days of over doing shots of cheap stuff. That's why I haven't drank it in years.

I sat down and poured a bit of Macallan 12yr and just sipped at it and to my surprise I found I enjoyed it. That was a few weeks ago and since then I've delved into the world of whisky.

Does anyone else enjoy single malt scotch, what's your favorite? I've tried the Macallan 12 and Talisker Distiller Edition 1999 so far.

I have samples of Abelour, Lahproig, Lavagulin, Balvenie, and Glenmorngie coming in them mail. I'll have my daughter set up a blind tasting for the Wife and I see if we can find something we both really like out of the bunch. Should be fun.

When we still lived in Bradenton, FL there was a celtic pub there (closed now) that had over 50 single malt scotches. Thom and his brother in law made it their duty, their duty I tell you, to try each and every one. A different one each time they went in there. Once a month they would hold a class with a tasting.

One of my favorites is Scapa 15 year old - behind that there's Highland Park 18 year old...

Oban and all the others mentioned thus far. Pour some on a glass and sip away. SOME say you should use just a splash of water or perhaps ONE ice cube. Any more and it's ruined.

I also like JW Black neat

Talisker 10 yr(Skye), Oban (West Highland). Going to try Dalwhinnie 15yr (Highland) this Friday. Also for Whiskey, Kirkland (Costco) Small batch 103 proof is pretty good and at a good price point.

I am with wildtoad on this one, Oban is pricey but super smooth. Hold the ice cube, it dilutes a fine drink. I'll pass on the JW though, a little harsh for my taste.

Single malt is pretty good.

I found Bourbon in KY.
Hard to go back!

I found the Talisker DE 1999 really peaty with a long coal tar finish. Maybe too much, I'll have to try it again this weekend. I'm curious to try the Lagavulin and Laphroaig to see how different the heavy peat influence can be.

I'm also going to find some Oban, it seems to be popular.

X2 on the Scapa. I'm also partial to Jura, and to Jura Superstition. Abelour is lovely, and Genmorangie is a good all around scotch, but the Glenmorangie Quinta Ruban is superior. And if you like the Balvenie, try to find the Balvenie Caribbean Cask, it is also very good - it's aged in rum casks.

You've chosen a good sampling of scotches to start with :-)

Oh, and should you be in the Seattle area, The Whisky Bar on 2nd Street in Belltown has an extraordinary selection of whiskeys!

Nothing better than Tenessee Moonshine right out of the mountians, gives you a nice warm glow inside and out,, so smooth,, but guess that should be another thread.....

I prefer Irish Whiskeys... right now I am on a Midleton Barry Crockett reserve kick... Expensive, but worth it!

I am bourbon fan as well!
