Take a break, you say? ...... does not compute. I'm not sure my computer even has an off switch! ;)


What brand? What year? Single Malt? Blended?

I would recommend - Glenmorangie 10 Year Old - with a dash of water. It does not need the rocks.

And - since my Sarah Palin melt down in September - my wife has limited my posting habits.

Holy cow, I couldn't even tell you. I had some at the last two wedding receptions I was at, so I'm sure it wasn't anything quality. But last weekend I was at a friend's, and he loves scotch, so that probably was better. I'll have to ask him what it was.

There's a great bar here in Seattle that has this entire, giant blackboard listing all the scotch they've got at the bar. I don't think I could even name one. I've had it straight and with water.

what can I say - I'm a noob! ;)

I aquired the taste a year ago... The Glenmorangie 10 Year Old is in the flask I keep in my golf bag. It is really good warm...

Diemen 10-26-2008 06:58 PM

Man, now you've got me really craving some scotch. And I don't have any in the house. Maybe port will do. :hmm:

I'll have to check into that, and see what kind my friend has as well. I may need to snuggle up with some on election day. ;)

Thanks for the tip!

All I ever have on hand is vodka. If I didn't have to leave for a choir rehearsal in a half an hour, I'd be breaking it out of the freezer right about now.

Macallan 12.......

Aged in previously-used-for making-sherry casks for a hint of sweetness

Water/Ice should NEVER EVER EVER EVER EVER EVERERERERERERERE be mixed with a good scotch.

Dalwhinnie is good, a wee bit more of a peat-y type whisky rather than the Macallans which are a bit on the sweeter side

toscano 10-26-2008 07:06 PM

Oh, and never an "e" in whisky, if it has an 'e' it's not Scotch, it's the incredibly inferior Irish or Canadian firewater. May as well drink bourbon or some other nasty firewater.

A_Wanderer 10-26-2008 07:07 PM

Ardbeg 10 y.o.

Diemen 10-26-2008 07:09 PM

Note to self: stop by BevMo tomorrow for Scotch.

corianderstem 10-26-2008 07:10 PM

I gotta start taking notes. Where's my pen?

See how well we all get around when we talk about booze instead of politics? No one's getting in fist fights or anything!


.................. yet. :uhoh:

Many people feel a dash of water releases the taste.

That said, Johnny Walker black tastes better on the rocks to me.

If memory serves me correctly, this one tastes good with chocolate chip cookies warm from the oven.

Diemen 10-26-2008 07:14 PM

:lol:

Though to be fair, this might not be an FYM appropriate thread unless we start a discussion on the eco-social-political ramifications of adding water to scotch. ;)

corianderstem 10-26-2008 07:14 PM

:lol: Awesome.

So, scotch. Save for having it on the rocks, it's drunk warm, yes? Room temp and not shoved in the freezer like vodka?

Diemen: maybe we can leave it open through the election. We may need it. ;)

WE have never had an FYM Bar before.....:D We may need it over the next few days.

Dreadsox 10-26-2008 07:16 PM

You may want to remove the scotch posts from the other thread over here :O)

corianderstem 10-26-2008 07:16 PM

Liquor and cookies? Together?

Clearly, I need to start drinking more.

Diemen 10-26-2008 07:17 PM

Yep. I wish I remembered the names of the scotches I had at my brother's in-laws' house last Christmas. They spent a few weeks in Scotland and basically did a whisky tour.

I tasted 3 that night and all were fantastic, but one of them was clearly tops - smokey and oh so smooth.

U2democrat 10-26-2008 07:17 PM

Can't go wrong discussing politics over a glass of Kentucky Bourbon :up:
