Guys,
some new suggestions:

- Writer's Tears: an Irish whiskey destilled in copper pot. An homage to the great Irish writers.

- BenRiach peated single malt Scotch whisky (aged 10 years): a Speyside whiskey, yet very peaty and intense.

I've got that BenRiach few bottles. Good price/quality ratio.

McKenna is an ongoing release. I've had numerous bottles over the past few years. If you're looking to have a bottle shipped, this is probably the best place to get it.

They don't ship to CT, NY, MA, NJ, or PA due to state regulations in all those places. I'm now looking for friends in VT or NH.

Guys,

any experience with Highland Park?
I've only had the 12 yr. It's a very light mild peated whiskey. One to start out your peat journey with if you've never had it. Ice heard the 15 yr is light years better but harder to find and pricier.

Very light? Really? I thought it clearly had a stronger flavour than the average scotch. Nothing like Ardbeg, Talisker, Laphroaig, etc but good still.

Maybe it comes to variation in batches or something. When did you drink yours? I think it's been about ten years since I drank my bottles and things may have changed since then.

my reference to light was the peat phenol level. If someone were to want to try a peated scotch, it might be a good one to start with a long with Talisker vs an ardbeg or laphroaig with a high peat level.

I found a bottle of 100 Pipers scotch tucked away in the back of a cupboard last night after I ran out of vodka. When I woke up this morning there were only about 10 pipers left in the bottle.

I won't be touching that stuff again.

Tried Glenfiddich IPA which is a non age stated single malt finished in barrels that held India Pale Ale beer. I wouldn't have been able to pick it out but after knowing what it was, I could definitely get a hint of the hops on the finish. Very tasty malt in my opinion.

It looks tasty! Maybe more than it is?

For anybody looking for a solid blended, at a reasonable price, I've just discovered Cutty Sark Prohibition Edition. Miles ahead of the regular Cutty, so don’t be afraid to try it.

I have run into that problem as well. Mr. Jameson & I begin discussions, and in the morning Jim is barely left.......

Interesting conversation. Never liked whisky when I was younger favouring brandy. Just got into whisky a bit more when I was given a single malt as a present from a sales rep

I was given a bottle of this nearly twenty years ago and still have it untouched in my cupboard. Any good? Or is it mass market generic stuff with a silly price tag? Johnnie-Walker-Blue-Label-31.jpg

I think that is the best whisky I've ever tasted. It's sublime. Maybe it's the best alcoholic beverage I've tasted. I've tasted a lot of them, and that takes the spot. I've only ever drank a few glasses of it though, it's far too pricey for me, but I once had some drink tokens in a bar where they could be used for anything they had on the shelves. That was one of the best drinking occasions I've ever had. I spent most of the tokens on Blue Label.

When it comes to Johnnie Walker I don't really like red, it's too expensive for what it is, basically a cheap blend. Black is in general nice but lacks punch and flavour to me. I've drank a couple of bottles of Green and really liked it.
