Laphroaig is outstanding. So is Jack Daniels. So is Jamesons. I'm quite fond of Knob Creek, as well. I've always liked Jim Beam Rye Whiskey, I must admit. I think Canadian Club is good with water or soda.

We must abandon the quest for the "best" whiskey and accept that which circumstances--which vary--render the most appropriate.

We don't get much American whisky here, so I've always thought of Jim Beem as being a little inferior to JD's (purely 'cause those are the only two we do get). Still, it's a nice, firm brew.

I like the new picture, by the way. Can we have George C. Scott next, seeing as we've already had Peter Sellers and Slim Pickins? Perhaps this picture:



Although it might be a bit too aggressive in nature.

Which is to suggest that it's rather insipid on it's own, and I agree.

The "best" liquor is the one in the glass in front of me. Some recent examples, and two of them are not whiskey:

Pyrat XO Reserve Rum (Anguilla)
Wild Turkey Rare Breed Bourbon Whiskey (barrel strength)
Diplimatico Reserva (gray label) Rum (Venezuela)

I have one of Sterling Hayden as General Jack D. Ripper lined up already, but Scott as General Buck Turgidson makes a fine avatar as well. I think we'll see him one day.

It seems you can only get it on the island of St. Kitts, where it is made, but Cane Spirit Rothschild (CSR) is quite good, not a rum but a product of the sugar cane, particularly with Ting (as recommended by the locals) but also straight after kept in the freezer, like a good vodka.

I prefer Johnnie Walker to the Whiskey brands mentioned above. Johnnie "Negro" to be specific. On the rocks with lots of ice to cool me down... To be honest I am doing a little of him now, but don't tell Tiff, I saw she said it's illegal to do posting when enjoying something brown in your glass, even if it's your own Christmas present...wink

I suppose a bit of irony goes well with Whiskey.

I do not drink at all, but once won a bottle of this Whiskey as a prize in a cycling race.



It is still standing around in it's case... never opened. Any takers?

I also receive this one as a gift.

No case, but again... never opened.

Meow!

Damn one remark and I am getting a reputation? By the way...Santa loves to get 14 year old Scotch and Cuban Cigars. Isn't that what you leave out at your house on Christmas Eve for Santa?

I normally channel most gifts of hard liquors directly to my office and I do most of my drinking there, so I leave it out of my house, yes. Reason for that is that I dont want my wife to party on my wiskey with her friends, or her cervants when I am not there. On the matter of cuban sigars I never learned to smoke, In fact I really never tried it either, so I guess I am to old starting to practise it now? cool
