    Quoted from Daditude:

    I You may want to look into the smaller/travel size bottles to help you find what is good for you instead of just committing to a full bottle. If you have a store stocked with these, try to look for makers 46, makers, evan Williams, old grand-dad, weller, old forester, stranahans, pinhook, and buffalo trace.

    Evan Williams is my regular brand. A good every day affordable whiskey.

    Quoted from luckycreature:

    Great shelf. Any Ohishi in there?

    No Ohishi - mainly Nikka and Suntory whiskies as they are most common here in Australia and a bit easier to get hold of. Hibiki and Yamazaki are probably my favourites, and I love Nikka From The Barrel which is a cheaper cask strength but soooooo good.

    Plus if you look closely you can see an umeshu (Japanese Plum liqueur) that's been aged in Yamazaki whisky casks and that stuff with a bit of ice is seriously delicious.

    My wife got me a flaviar subscription for Christmas. My first bottle is this tasty Sagamore rye. I got the around the world sampler for my tasting bottles this quarter. The 8 year sherry cask Ohishi is delicious.

    I’ve had that Sagamore and if that’s the worst you get in you gift subscription, you did well which is what I think you’ve done.

    Please, please, please take care of yourself. Those can be EXTREMELY dangerous.

    You are one of the best "newbies" on here. We would be very disappointed if you had any complications.

    Quoted from zombywoof:

    Twenty years ago I was in a random pub in Dublin. It was mid-afternoon, and the place was empty except for my wife and I. I asked the bartender for the best whiskey he had. He set a glass of Midleton in front of me. It's been one of my favorites ever since.
    [quoted image]

    Went to get a bottle of Midleton today until I saw the price. $300, yikes! I picked up a Black Barrel Jameson instead.

    8 bottles of Midleton or 1 Ghostbusters topper. Easy choice for me.

    #66 1 year ago

    For a reasonably priced single malt Irish try "Tyrconnell", for a great bourbon I like "Angels envy". I manage a bar and we sell a huge amount of "Jameson".

    #67 1 year ago

    I'm more a Redbreast drinker, but as I've seen in a few pics here as well, a little Jameson Black Barrel makes a cheap alternative.

    Going to try some rye next I believe.

    #68 1 year ago

    Got this Northern Harvest for the first time, it won some awards a few years back. It’s a pretty good rye. I also picked up a fifth of Jamison to try and make my own Irish cream. I’ve never tried to before, but a video popped up on YouTube and now I wanna try it out.

    I am unfamiliar with that. Please share your thoughts/tasting notes when you get into it.

    Here’s three varieties of the brown stuff in my bar currently. A bourbon, rye, scotch. All so good. Laphroaig if you haven’t tasted is a super peaty scotch. It tastes like a 50 year old leather wallet that’s been in the exhaust plume of a motorcycle then roasted on a campfire and splashed with cologne. And I mean that in the best way.

    Been trying a few things lately. I really like the William Wolf Pecan whisky. Nummy! Also picked up a bottle of Cutty Sark Prohibition Edition and some good stuff from Venezuela called Diplomatico (rum). Had some Ten to One Caribbean rum and that was great too! Smith and Cross rum is a fave of mine too. Maybe there is a problem here

    Quoted from Pin-up:

    A while before COVID struck our local ABC store had a tasting for Afrohead dark rum from Trinidad. After tasting it, I bought a bottle on the spot! I highly recommend.

    Quoted from Deaconblooze:

    Old fashioneds in WI are their own thing. Made with brandy, and either sour or sweet. If I'm out, I'll order them press. It's a great drink to throw back as you're hanging out at a supper club (another pretty unique to WI thing), but personally I prefer the traditional version if I'm making them at home.

    There once was a Supper Club on the Northern edge of Flint, Michigan. It may have actually been in Mt. Morris Township. Walli's Supper Club. Also one on the West side of Flint on Pierson Road & I-75. All gone these days.

    We had Eddie's supper club in Salem, Oregon back in the day.

    It's a strip club now.

    I find it occasionally at the local Total Wine. A lot of liquor stores will special order a bottle of harder to find things for you. Especially the more boutique type shops.

    I love Laphroaig! Just redeemed my FOL points last night. Only have until April to redeem them if you haven’t already - heads up.

    I always tell people it’s like licking a tree covered in moss haha

    That room is awesome! Very cool, thanks for sharing!

    Any Texas or surrounding state Pinsiders who have given any time to the Balcones whisky lineup? They distill in Waco, TX.
    I love Baby Blue the most, but enjoy their Rye and Pot Still Bourbon as well. And Rumble. And Single Malt.
    I enjoyed some Balcones Rye last night while working on controlled light sockets of my Split Second.

    I'm a fan of inexpensive yet drinkable Scotch. Blended or single malt, I'm not too picky. Maybe someday I'll join the >$100/bottle dick waving contingent, but for now I'm a Bang For Your Buck buyer.

    These days I'm usually satisfied with Speyburn, I find it almost magical for the price, under $30/750ml. But variety is nice, too.

    I used to just always buy Chivas. I remember trying Dewar's White label and not caring for it. But I saw an article recently saying that their 12 year old stuff is really good. Should I believe it, and give it a try?

    For value, have you tried Costco stuff? A 1.75 for $20 is pretty tough to beat, and tastes good to me. As Daditude mentioned, it might very well be Dewars, so maybe not the right bottle for you.

    My Buddy and I do a Youtube Channel Called Whiskey Pop. We talk Nerd and Whiskey, doing a dedicated Review on Whiskey every Friday. https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PL8efTxwuVmk1uUV7mD-cga-qPkRpvqcgq These are some of the reviews we have done. If anyone is interest just check it out. We do a lot of Whiskey drinking and playing pinball off camera. Bummer is, I'm the only one with pinball machines.

    So on Whiskey Pop we did a whole month on Japanese Whiskey, our Friday reviews we call Second Pour. The "Whisky" spelled like scotch whisky, I have to say impress me quite a bit. The quality and meticulous attention to detail is what sets them apart.

    I prefer single malt scotch, but my favorite cheap scotch is a blend. Famous grouse

    We are going to do reviews on inexpensive bourbon this month. Already picked them out. I think it’s interesting at how price doesn’t mean good or bad. Kaiyo Japanese whiskey is the most scotch like of all the ones we have tried. The down side is it’s pricey.
