I prefer bourbon and Irish whisky to Scotch. Never swill, mind you, but honest whisky.

That said, I've had good Scotch and enjoyed it. I'm not as much a fan of smoke and peat as I am char and sweet.

May prohibition never return.

1. I like them all. It depends on my mood.

Lately I've been working on a bottle of this.


Will probably switch to this next:

2. On this we can agree, somewhat. My favorite Irish whiskey is Midleton. My favorite scotch

is Macallan 18. I always have both in my liquor cabinet.

Both are preferred over the other for different reasons and different moods.

But if I had to chose one, it would be the scotch.

A drinker but I've had bourbon chicken, and damn, that stuff tastes pretty good.

4. Have to agree with you on this.

Life is so much better with an occasional nip of Tullemore Dew or Laphroaig. Might add, a little Jim Beam, now and then, doesn't hurt either.

6. I can get...

Laphroaig 10 yr for about $45 dollars a bottle here.

Probably the the best whiskey for under $50.

8. Agreed!

It fluctuates a little but never higher then $55.

I was first introduced to Laphroaig about 10 years ago in England when my father in law pulled a bottle out of his whiskey cabinet.

Been a favorite ever since.

10. Ever try any of the Highland Malts?

They are more sweet and heathery (is that a word?) than smoky. They can be quite light and delicate.

This is a nice introduction to the style:

12. Yes. I had a nip of that yesterday, in fact. More like Irish Whisky to me than Scotch
