Quoted from Sticky:
I've dumped way too much money on whiskey. Don't even get me started on wine.
Fortunately you can't drink a pinball machine so it always retains some value.
That said... a good whiskey pairs well with pinball. Too much beer and you're peeing all the time instead of playing.
Some of my faves are pictured. I like them peaty and over the top with an ice cube or two.
Also pleasantly surprised by Japanese whiskeys.
If you haven't tried them yet, anything by Compass Box is great. Their top end stuff is spectacular.
The Yamazaki 18 yr is probably the best scotch I've ever had even though it's not technically a scotch. I always try to keep a bottle on hand, but since it's fairly pricey to drink all the time, the Highland Park 12 is more of my day-to-day scotch.
I drink ryes about as much as scotch though and my favorites are High West. I always keep a bottle of their Rendezvous Rye (the best) and Double Rye (everyday).
Don't really drink bourbons as much as the other two, but Bell Meade or Eagle Rare are my norms, though Angel's Envy is also a favorite.
All whiskey seems best to me straight, though sometimes i add a single smallish ice cube, particularly for bourbons. Tried various whiskey stones but none seem to work that well.
Hmm...this thread has reminded me how much stuff I'm out of stock on...
