This encompasses:
Scotch, Irish, Canadian, American and Bourbon.

Personally, I prefer bourbon. Maker's Mark hit's the spot.
If I had to pick a main-stream scotch that I like, it's going to have to be Black Label JW.

I avoided whisky. When you drank it like me...a pint in an hour...you tend to avoid the shit that gives the worst hangovers. And whisky's good for that, no matter how snooty the label. :mrgreen:

Maker's Mark. 'Nuff said!

However, if I'm in the mood to spend a bit more and drink a little slower, the eighteen year Glenlivet is where it's at. I'll never drink the twelve or sixteen, again.

I usually go for Makers Mark.

I have heard from some co-workers Gentleman Jack is pretty civilized though.

That sounds familiar. I think I've seen a bottle of weed labeled Sweet Tea. If I am remembering that correctly, have you tried that before?

No, that's some kind of new crap, essentially tea flavored Vodka.

Hah. I love that too. I like Crown a LOT. I can drink a whole bottle in one sitting.

Scotch (Neat):
Dalwhinie
Laphroaig
Macellen

Don't care for the blends;

Maker's Mark
Knob Creek
Jack Single Barrel
Woodford Reserve

And Busmill's or Jameson's when I am in the mood for some Irish Whiskey

Bourbon is from Kentucky. Whiskey is from Tennessee. Other than that - damn little. :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen:

Edit: There IS a difference in taste. I'm not at all a fan of whiskey. On a flight once, I ordered bourbon on the rocks. The FA brought me Jack Daniels. I politley told her I asked for bourbon, and not whiskey. She said in a somewhat snotty attitude that they're both brown - all the same. I told her they guy next to me ordered gin - you didn't bring him vodka did you - I mean they're both clear - all the same. She went and got me bourbon. Thank goodness it was a short flight - I wasn't her favorite passenger at that point..... :mrgreen: :mrgreen:
Rack-em'. I'm getting a beer.

If you can't stand the taste you can consume it like some people at a party we went to the other night.

Soak some cotton balls in it and jam it up your pooper.. Apparently it gets the desired effect even faster- if you don't mind the loss in dignity.

The differenece is that TN Whiskey is filtered through charcoal just before being put in the barrel for aging. The smell in the room where they do this at the JD distillery is pure heaven.

A friend of the family went to Lynchburg, Tennessee. He manages some liquor stores in the Bellevue, WA area, so he got a free trip. While he was there, they were letting people take a wiff inside one of the kettles. He stuck his head in, breathed in...

I think to this day he still doesn't have any nose hair...

[Sorry for the bump]

Did a bit of research (on an aviation website?!?!?) on suggested Whiskeys as I am by no means an expert (more of a rum man myself) and ended up taking a bottle of Laphroaig to last night's Burn's Night Supper

It went down a treat with all on my table

Thanks to one and all for the recommendation {thumbsup}
Lovin' the smell of avgas in the morning....

Actually, I have recently evolved past makers mark.

Basil Haydens is a good whenever bourbon... For special occasions, Bookers.

It's all Ted (bhmbaglock)'s fault - he introduced me to the evil stuff!
