I was sitting here, just drinking my 3rd glass of Maker's Mark, when I realized it. I really like whisky.

Now I didn't come in expecting that I would, because my only previous experience with whisky involved me, a buddy, a fifth of Jack Daniels, an hour, and a horrible next day.

So when I finally thought about trying whisky again, I wasn't sure what to expect, but just sitting here, relaxing, just sipping and savoring it, I find that I am really getting into this stuff. I guess so much for my idea that I wasn't really a liquor kind of guy.

Who else loves whisky? What do you drink? What should I try next?

I love whiskey. Right now I think my favorite is Ardbeg 10yo and Bunnahabhain 12yo is very nice. The Bunnahabhain is pretty hard to find in my area but it is wonderful.

Even though it is Canadian, 40 Creek Barrel Select is pretty nice. Down here in Louisiana the stores only stock the big brands and the cheap stuff.

Thats how it is here. You have to go into the specialty stores back areas where they keep the good **** to get the great bottles.

In Dallas, the best stuff is commonplace in all the liquor stores I've ever been to. I'm fond of Scotch and Bourbon both. The Islay malts are my favorite Scotch; Laphroaig quarter cask especially, and Lagavulin. For Bourbon I like Knob Creek and Woodford Reserve.

By the way, "whisky" is Scotch, and "whiskey" is everything else.

Wait until you tr something good

For suggestions, if you don't mind the price, pappy van winkle's oldest stuff and Elijah Craig 18 are both good IME.

I am most definitely a whisky and bourbon fan! For whisky, Caol Illa 12 yo and The Balvenie 12 yo rank among my favorites. Knob Creek and Maker's Mark for bourbon.
