(Ok, just ONE beer to appease the brewing gods).
In my experience, using bourbon makes its waaaaay too sweet. So I'd assume rum would be even worse. Scotch would be my first choice, but I wouldn't waste expensive single malt, that'll get you beat up in scotland.

It's far from a waste

As for turkeyjerky, I'd recommend starting in the Highlands and Speyside region with something like the Macallan. Caol Ila is very nice and easy-drinking. If you're feeling more adventurous, check out Islay (prounounced "Ay-la", like island) malts like Bruichladdich, Laphroaig and Lagavulin - ranging from mild to aggressively peaty and smoky.

I haven't updated my whisky blog in a while, but there's some good information and whisky reviews up there.

They're delicious with dark malt--I just made a stout with nice big black patent and roasted barley additions and I'm enjoying the results right now.

(Caveat: mine's a brandywort, not a hot scotchie per se. I don't think the differences affect how nicely the dark malts work.)

As stated above, I love the peaty scotches form the Islay region. They're just so tasty to me. Glennfidich (if I remember correctly) also makes a 15 yo single that gets finished in french sherry casks. It's to die for.

I drink mine with a single ice cube and dark chocolate to nibble on. Hershey's Special Dark broken up into tiny pieces, or Nestle chocolate chips......if you really wanna kick it up a notch, grab some snow caps. YUM!!!

i feel like the glen morangie just got wasted, but to each their own. Tomintoul 16 yr. is pretty good too and I just got a bottle of Glenrothes select reserve for xmas. pretty smooth as well.

So I understand this; You take a shot of hot wort (first running, after the sparge, during boil, after hops,. after boil?) and while the wort is still hot you mix it with a shot of scotch, bourbon, whiskey? (will Gentleman Jack work?) Then you drink it while it is still warm? .....
This I got to try...

Thanks
