Default WHISKEY DRINKERS?

Any fellow whiskey drinkers on Drummerworld? I enjoy a good glass of whiskey or bourbon after work. (Moderation, of course, is key. Well, most of the time.

I enjoy Crown Royal but, lately, I've been enjoying Rebel Yell. Delicious.

Any recommendations?

No, I'm a whisky drinker.

Glenfiddich or Macallan when I'm flush. Dewar's White Label or Chivas Regal on a budget.

Now That's a good song from Billy Idol. :)

Yes I do like to drink a good whisky on the rocks, such as: Macallan, Glenfiddich, Glenn Morangie, The Famous Grouse & the Jameson Irish.

I like to take a slug from the bottle about 1/2 hour before before bedtime. I then swizzle it in my mouth and gargle just like brushing teeth - except that I don't spit out the scotch :)

Once it's down the hatch I shudder and feel a spreading warmth from the centre of my body out to my limbs - a bit like the big O. The cheaper and rougher the scotch, the better the effect.

It also clears up gingivitis and mouth ulcers.

I've never had a whiskey I didn't like, and I've had plenty. I'm more of a rum guy, though. Particularly spiced rum. Mmmm...

Hmmm

I like some Maker's Mark.

I really like the Woodford Reserve Bourbon too!

I prefer Bourbon over sour mash whiskeys. Blends are cool but if that's the case then I like the English and Scottish varieties over Canadian blends.

A little wheat makes a whiskey taste great. A bit sweeter.

Try Blanton's if you see it around, good stuff.

Booker's is Beam's undiluted select barrel and is worth every penny. I've only ever had it twice.

I appreciate the craft. A really great bourbon is like the paradiddle. Mandatory in the bar keep skill set.

Tequila.

Any tequila.

On the rocks.

No lime.

No salt.

No ceremony.

I'm definitely a whisky drinker and have been for as long as I've been drinking.

These days, it's scotch whisky for me. My favorite single malts are the Islay varieties, especially Lagavulin and Laphroaig. Of the blends, I like Johnnie Walker Black Label. I usually drink it neat at home or on-the-rocks at the pub.

In my younger years, it was Jack Daniels. Straight out of the bottle.

May I recommend Highland Park 18 to a 'Whisky' drinker. I prefer the Scotch stuff over the Irish personally and Highland Park is made in Orkney. I visited the distillery when I was twelve with my parents.

Not the best Scotch there is but it's certainly up there and one I'm very fond of.

Nice to see Maker's Mark getting the respect it deserves. I'd also throw in Single Barrel Jack Daniel's. And Seagram's Seven with Rose's Sweet and Sour mix... the best whiskey sour you will ever have!

Depends on age, and they have some special offerings, too. It is available at a wide variety of prices. Locally, 12 year old is in the $90 range for a fifth...

I drink very few alcoholic beverages. Maybe a beer a week with my pizza and when I'm very sick, I'll have a shot of whiskey to go to bed. Normally if I can get four to five hours a sleep at night, I'm OK, but when I'm feeling ill, sometimes this isn't easily done.

Ugh! I used to do the salt and lemon thing back in the day but it's horrible. If you haven't had a tequila hangover then you're not trying hard enough because when I've woken up s*faced and f*ed up up on the stuff. Come to think of it, I was probably trying too hard ...

When it comes to scotch, the cheaper and nastier the better. To me, a good scotch is one that makes you shudder :) ... smooth, fancy-pants, quality yuppie brands don't have the same effect.

Having said that, I drink very little these days, just a slug of scotch before bed at times. That started because, at one point, it seemed that every person who lived to 100 would say how they'd have a shot of scotch before bed. It seemed like the healthy thing to do ...?

We play drinking games, so last time I took about 15 shots. The problem is that the drunkenness comes after half and hour or so. I also drink a lot of water and eat food before going to bed. Maybe thats why I don't get hangovers.
