I always prefer a single drop or even two of water off of an ice cube in my single.


In Scotland, no ice! They'll add a few drops of water though.

Completely agree, a drop or two, off of an ice cube, but never ice.

Btw, w+a, I had a nice discussion about single malts with Olivier Humbrecht this summer. His wife is Scottish and they were about to leave for a vacation in Scotland. He gave the name of a single malt site he frequents.


I hold Olivier in high regard, and would think you would connect with him as well, Board-O.

I thought he was a true Renaissance man, and one of the finest visits to a winery I have ever experienced.
I have a personal preference for the
whiskeys of Ireland. From what I have observed not a whole lot of people have ventured into this venue. I would suggest that you scotch fans give it a try. For everyday drinking I prefer Jamison. For great sipping I strongly suggest Blackbush.

Yes it does. That's ice's defining characteristic.

LOL !! Boardo, thanks for the clarification. Big Grin

Berno, that Pappy 20 is pretty great stuff. Have you tried the 23? I haven't but would love a dram. From what I've heard, it's the Romanee-Conti of bourbons.

I have not, there's a bottle left in my store. It's quite tempting, but I like the 12 year enough to keep me satisfied.

you can feel all 127.4 proof on this bad boy.

not as refined as the basil hayden's, this is sharper, but still nice. and a great selection when you walk in from the office and "need a drink"

It is one of my favorites as well.


Yes. His Blanco is also my go-to for summer margaritas.

Thanks for the tip. Smile

If I recall correctly, this was the brand being tasted at a retail shop recently. I tried both the Reposado and Anejo, and wasn't very impressed. Herrudura's Anejo is about the same price and blows it away IMO.
I've always leaned toward scotch whiskey, but after ten days in Ireland I'm re-acquiring my taste for Irish whiskey. Not sure how prevalent it is here because I'm just getting back from the trip and again, I haven't looked at Irish whiskeys much, but I really enjoyed Redbreast...

Had to google this, to see if this is a 400 year old bottle. Ok it isn't Smile[/QUOTE. I'm a poor and working class stiff. I was lucky that my CC went through... And a Sears CC at that. I'm a rookie when it comes to this libation, so nothing unique or expensive. Wink

Working class stiff, yeah. Given the wines you are drinking, i did not completely rule out you actually tasted a 400 year old Irish Whiskey.
