    Ha! We've all been there. IMHO, whiskey is a more mature drink, similar to wine. It takes a little bit of time it really get in to it and appreciate it. If anyone is a reader, there are some awesome books on the history of American whiskey/moonshining and how to distill your own (technically illegal, but so is speeding Click here to enlarge ) - let me know and I can recommend them.

    BTW - Did you merge two threads or was I just blind to the first three pages of this? Great thread - I'm finding several new varieties I need to buy.

    Blind.

    And what about that whiskey I just posted? I think I'm going to take a break off the forums which have been driving me insane for the past few days and have a drink.

    Unfortunately, I'm not much of a scotch guru, so I can't really say other than knowing Glenlivet is typically well respected.

    I will open it up tonight and report back. I'd do it already if it wasn't 9:30 AM and I'd like to not sit around waiting for the super bowl to start for 10+ hours.

    I just finished my bottle. It was very enjoyable. Glenlivet is a Speyside scotch, I believe. They're usually a little sweeter and less peaty than some of the others like Lagavulin. These are my preferred scotches.

    I noticed you just tried JW Green. Try Gold if you can find it.

    Decided screw it, my Friday starts now and opened her up.

    I'm not wowed by it. It's decent but Lagavulin 16 kicked its ass.

    The buzz that whiskey give you is just awesome. I wish I discovered how awesome this stuff was earlier.

    Drinking it neat now. And... I'm enjoying that.

They have both won many a gold medal and are fantastic. Stranahan's is great because they bottle it at a slightly higher proof so it is actually made to be mixed with a small amount of water and/or served on ice. Makes it incredibly mellow and smooth.

    I took a trip up to Denver last year with a native Coloradoan, and he introduced me to Stranahan's. It's fantastic. I wish I could get it in Texas.

    Currently drinking Bulleit and Aberlour A'Bunadh Cask Strength. Bulleit is a little sweeter than most whiskeys I've had, but I like it. Definitely will buy again. The Aberlour is ~120 proof IIRC. Tried it neat the first time, like I usually drink scotch, but it was pretty heavy. Watered the next one down a bit (just a few drops) and it opened up beautifully.

    @Sticky - That list is nuts! One that stuck at as something I'd like to try is the 1984 vintage Caol Ila. No idea if it would be good or not, but I'd try it if I wasn't on a budget.

    Bought this for a friend for Christmas and ended up picking up a bottle for myself, which has been empty since mid January. Most excellent.

    Laphroaig 10 or 18 are both great scotch. You can smell/taste the sea when you drink it.

    I actually had a dream about this scotch last night. It is SO good in real life that I dream about it. First time I've ever dreamed about drinking alcohol, lol.

    I haven't tried TOO many, but am getting there

    (rough price order)
    blends:
    anything cheaper = mouldy poo
    JW red = poo
    Teachers = uhh better than johnny red? i don't know, last time i drank it, it was straight from the bottle... would not recommend?
    Bailie Nichol Jarvie = THE BEST BLEND I HAVE EVER TASTED I THINK... i may prefer it over JW green or chivas 18, for all of half the price! - if you ever can find it TRY IT. it's a .. blend of a few of the higher end singles, bottled by glenmorangie.
    JW black = first drinkable
    Chivas regal 12 = better than JW red, worse than black,
    JW double black = slightly funky tasting but still good
    Monkey Shoulder = better than everything before, but with no real distinguishing characteristics i can recall.
    JW green = sadly gone but delicious for a blend, and cheap
    Chivas 18 = only tasted it a decade ago, memories = delicious honey.. but i used to like JW red back then so i dunno...
    JW Blue = if you buy a bottle of this, i will think less of you.. it's alright, but nothing 'standout' it's just so.. meh, for $150+ a bottle.. you can buy scotch for 1/4 (well, 1/3 more commonly/easily) the price i'd enjoy more.


    (yet to try the gold/platinum JW's)

    single malts:

    Glen moray 12 = barely better than jw red, same price less dirt taste but with this disgusting paint thinner burn
    glenfiddich 12 = DELICIOUSNESS, so easy to drink, and affordable!!
    Glenmorangie quinta ruban = pure sex, just spectacular port notes (from the port casking..), the perfect burn.. almost on the end of the bottle, will need another.
    lagavulin 16 = IODINE. IODINE. IODINE. absolutely a love or hate.. i hate, a $96 bottle i just gave away to someone who would enjoy it lol.

    I believe i've tried others, but can't remember

    Bourbons:

    never tried any of the really good unique ones

    Cougar = paint thinner
    Jim beam/wild turkey/jack daniels = everyone knows them, the're not offensive, much prefer turkey
    jim beam honey = meh, i like it but meh, cheap for a reason
    Makers mark = delicious, my day to day pick
    Makers Mark 46 = delicious, but not more than the original ENOUGH for the price.
    wild turkey honey = the $#@!, so goddamn delicious
    wild turkey rare breed = delicious with the turkey taste
    Jack Daniel's single barrel = delicious with the JD taste
    boop

    Here is what I found to be a pretty good explanation of the different styles:

    Bourbon: Made of at least 51% corn, and stored in a new, charred, oak barrels for at least two years. Famed for its vanilla, toffee, chocolate and berry traits.

    Rye: At least 51% Rye, Rye whiskey is spicier than it’s cousin Bourbon, less sweet, with more pepper notes and a broader mouth-feel.

    Single Malt Scotch: Made from Malted Barley, Scotch Whisky most often starts its aging in used American Bourbon casks. There are five major distilling regions in
    Scotland recognized by the Scotch Whisky Association, Lowlands, Highlands, Speyside, Campbeltown and Islay, and all have their own distinct style.

    Irish: The originators of whisky, Irish whisky is almost always triple-distilled, creating the smoothest, most easy-drinking style in the whisky world.

    I'd actually debate that in my personal experience.. to me Irish has the most burn, the most astringency.. yes the finish of the irish is smooth once the burn leaves, but the actual mouthfeel and nose... again, haven't tried too many, i think $#@!ty cheap Jameson is totally ruined it for me lol.

    and Bourbon is the smoothest easy drinker.. little burn, very sweet.. those toffee/vanilla/chocolate notes. nomnom.

    I haven't actually tried a Rye - didn't know it was a thing! thanks! Click here to enlarge.. that'll be my next bottle haha

    Single malt scotch is probably the most wide ranging though IMO (not that i've tried enough of the other styles to be definitive!).. ranging from the heavy sweetness of speyside, to the light sweetness of highland to the overpowering peaty smokey brineyness of islay

    (if you can't tell, i'm a highland+speyside scotch person Click here to enlarge )

    I think I'm going to go with their highest end Bourbon flight. I always thought Maker's and Wild Turkey were cheap stuff though?

    I'm finishing up a bottle that I posted earlier right now. I enjoyed it enough to finish it but I can't wait to branch out.
