Fellow forumistas,

I've started liking the taste of whisk(e)y.
I've also recently been handed over about 200 tax free pounds to spend on something I want but don't really need...so I thought I'd splash out...literally.

I like the drink to be smooth and I don't mind smoke,tar or rubber.

Any recommendations? Apart from fucking off?

I await the deluge of constructive and well informed responses.

Ta.

This would be my first choice of reasonably priced whiskey don't forget to buy some decent whisky stones and a proper glass to drink out of.

If you want a nice bourbon

jim beam should do the trick Cool

This stuff is the dogs bollocks

Don't neglect a good blended whisky. The fad for single malts has saved the Scotch whisky industy but the art of blending, which takes years to perfect, was once the thing that made Scotch a favourite drink. Single malts tend to be harsh but a good blender can turn them into liquid gold.

If you want to blow most of your tax-free money on a single bottle, make it this one. Trust me you wont regret it.

A single malt from Speyside is generally smooth and inoffensive (a bit like myself), though my current favourite tipple is Highland Park (distilled on Orkney).

I'm not big into Whisky by any stretch of the imagination, but I have to concur with the Highland Park recommendations, it's a lovely drop and would certainly be my go-to Whisky of choice.

Glenfiddich 21 is amazing
Recommend a glencairn glass no ice and left to stand for around 15 mind before nosing and sipping. 121 quid mind.

18 year old glenfiddich is very good also. I would say they are my go to well known branded whiskey

Thanks chaps...

Reassuring.

I'll be investing in those fancy glasses (just for the sheer ceremony) and hitting the duty free shop with purpose and intent! One blended and one single. I'm sure the budget will stretch.

Can't drink it cos I'm a lightweight & it makes me mental.

But I got a bottle of makers mark off a. American friend & anyone I've given a drop raves about it.

My da was Glenfddich straight down the line... probably played a part in him not being alive anymore if I'm honest. Tough times, hard living I suppose.

it must be an acquired taste......


last year on the way to a game, my mate pulls out a bottle, he starts waxing lyrical about it being a double blended, malted , made from the tears of unicorns , angels eye lash infused , Scottish malt. says it's older than time and 6000 Scottish brewers died to hide it's secret.

he pours my other pal a small glass,

he smells it , rolls the glass, tasted it , and then pulled this face .......I thought he had had an orgasm, he looked like he'd just jacked heroin !!!

then the purveyor of the whiskey had a swig , and he did the same..
they both then went on about how smooth it was, how it caressed the throat, coated the inner organs in a warm honey type feeling etc etc

"fuck me " said I , "let's have a swig , that looks mega "

and so I did............


I honestly thought it was lighter fluid, I seriously thought they were winding me up and had given me some de-icer as a joke,

but nope, they looked like they were relaxing in an opium den, Shocked

as I said, it must be an acquired taste Laughing

I don't like it, but did the Jameson's tour in Dublin and the tasting tray convinces you that theirs is the smmoothest

Perhaps, like me, a drop of coke is required to bring out the flavours?? Wink

Greenore Whiskey aged stuff is the best.

If the choice isn't there, I almost always go for Jack Daniels.
