Whiskey is my go to drink after beer. I think that the best whiskeys are Irish Whiskeys. Theyre just alot smoother and more mellow. Tullamore Dew would have to be tops. Man oh man i can drink that stuff like water then Jameson. I also enjoy Jack and Jim. I enjoy some Gentleman Jack and Jim Black Label. I was never a big fan of Canadian or Scotch Whiskey.

I too am a whisky man...

I tend to keep Gentleman Jack in my bar at all times. I also make a point to buy single barrel bottles of brands I've never heard of before.

For suggestions, if you don't mind the price, pappy van winkle's oldest stuff and Elijah Craig 18 are both good IME.
I was going to mention Pappy when I saw this thread, but you beat me to it. I hate that more people are finding out about it though. Lately it costs an extra $10-$15 a fifth from when I first bought it.

Makers is my mainstay, but Pappy is always in the cabinet for a special occasion.

Yessir. I always have a bottle of Jameson around.

When I can afford it I'll splurge for something nice & aged (Laphroaig, or Glenfiddich)

I am a huge fan of Scotch, Whiskey, and Bourbon. Nothing is finer for an evening sipping drink. Here are a few of my favorites.

Bourbon - Four Roses (especially their small batch, and single barrel), Woodford Reserve, Makers Mark, Knob Creek, (thats just to name a few)
Whiskey - Jameson, Bushmills, Crown (rye), ect
Scotch - Glenfiddich, (I don't know much about fine Scotch's)

I love the taste of Jack Daniels Black Lable but seldom drink it as I have too much beer on hand to go spending on whisky as well. I do keep a quart bottle on hand though and probably average having to replace it once ever year or so. I drink it straight on ice.

If you like Makers Mark, you might like to try Buffalo Trace. My brother brought me a bottle from TN for my birthday (can't find it here in NY). Also Knob Creek is good.

But that's not the way it's supposed to be. That's just others ripping off the scots.
