    Crown is just fine fwiw. It's a staple in my bar.

    Crown 'n Coke is quite good. I just tend to forget there's alcohol in them until it's too late....

    That is the fun part.

    I like my girls like I like my whiskey. Aged 12 years and mixed up with coke. Click here to enlarge

    This one really is all that it is cracked up to be. Best all-rounder I've tasted yet, by quite a long shot. Ignore the price of admission; you won't regret it.

    If you like a super smokey and peaty scotch, Peat Monster Reserve delivers better than any other I've tasted. Greatly preferred to the usual Oban, etc.

    I always keep a 1.75 of Woodford in the cabinet...ironic since I collect Maker's bottles (unopened), but never keep any for drinking. Also love High West's Rendezvous Rye...picked up 2 cases of it right before they ran out. Shockingly impressive for the price. I've lately begun dabbling in white whiskeys...I'd highly reccommend checking some out for a completely different road to travel down. Buffalo Trace White Dog #1 and High West Silver are two great places to start.

    Also just cracked open a bottle of Glenmorangie Quinta Ruban; one of the best new scotches I've had in a while (in a market that becomes increasingly saturated by the day), it has a rich smoothness that is no doubt accentuated by the port casks in which it is aged.

    +1, but I like the Lasanta just a hair better.

    That just moved to the top of the Scotch buy list; will have to try it. I got the Artein when I got the Quinta Ruban, and I liked the Quinta better than the Artein...didn't see that one coming.

    I haven't seen anyone mention Redbreast either. One of the most authentic Whiskys around...pure pot still goodness.

    @DefactoM6, that series of Glenmorangie has absolutely amazed me. I'm relatively new to the world of Scotch (~8 years), but in the beginning, my tastes ran rather expensive. Macallan 18, @ $150/bottle, was the cheapest fit I could find. After a while, I made it my mission to find good bottles under $75. Glenmorangie gave me 4 (Lasanta, Quinta Ruban, Nector d'Or, and Finealta). Finealta busted the limit by a few dollars, but was still under $100. Unfortunately, I can't find the Finealta around here any more and I have maybe two fingers left.

    Definitely should try this one. Absolutely delicious, and it runs ~$30/bottle.

    Seen it on the shelf a few times but never took the leap. What's it like?

    $60 isn't a bad price for a good bottle. It should be here monday. Thanks!

    @nawlinstornado....<3 Finealta, didn't realize they stopped making it; I might be able to arrange something, gotta make a call.

    As for redbreast, for starters, AFAIK, it's still the only whisky currently on sale that is made in a pure pot still, which is what drew me in initially. I personally prefer the 12 to the 15, as the flavors are much more prominent and complex than the 15, IMHO. As for what it's like, it's a sweet, vanilla-y nose that continues through the sip. It sips super smooth, with the aforementioned sweet vanilla notes, along with some really nice nutty hints, and it finishes smooth and spicy. It's perfect to sit down with after a day at work.

    I can attest that it is indeed delicious.

    But where did you get it for $30? I saw that one around the $45/bottle range.

    @Torgus, let me know what you honestly think! Did you get the Peat Monster, or the Reserve? Apparently the bottling continues to evolve, and I had one of the Magnum Reserves

    This one: http://www.amazon.com/Compass-Peat-M...onster+Reserve

    I love super peaty and smokey scotch after a good meal or with cigars.

    I will let you know what I think. Thanks again for the suggestion. If it is as good as you say I can't wait to share it with some of my buddies who like scotch.

    You're going very well especially with your Mercedes posts. You keep posting good content and you'll be bumped up practically overnight.

    Drinking mostly bourbon. Not too much straight up or on the rocks, I like a little mixer (not too much) either sour or coke. Favorite Bourbon is Woodford Reserve.

    I was the same way for a while, particularly with Scotch. Unfortunately, I had only tried Johnny Walker and a few other brands - none of them excited me. Then a friend educated me a bit and I learned I had experienced less than 1% of the available varieties. We talked about my preferences for a while and then he had me sample a few based on our discussion. Lo' and behold, I found some that were absolutely delicious. Since that day, I have been on a whisky adventure.

    If you want to learn more about Scotch or other whisky, tastings are a lot of fun and give you a chance to try a wide variety of flavors. Then you can focus on particular areas-of-interest with your own collection.

    Forgot to mention, there is usually a decent selection of hotties at these events. Some are educated, cultured ladies genuinely interested in whisky; others are looking for wealthy men to hang out with. Either way, great hunting environment.
