I am working on a new quiz. Send Scotch.

Also, post some info on what your favorite Scotch is, and why...

Bowmore (that's been voting for a while) Very,very smooth but extremely pricey so only for very special occasions
Balvenie 21, really smooth, good taste, no bite
Dewars Aberfeldy
Suntory 12 yr. Yamazaki

Once you step away from blends its a whole new world -

Oh how I would have loved to join in on this thread about a year and a half ago! I miss The Glenlivet, or a petey Lagavulin... I truly do miss the flavor, but I had to give it up.


P.S. Uhoh! Did someone say ice, already?! That's how I enjoyed mine (to the rim with crushed ice, so don't feel bad)

I don't drink Scotch, but I do have a bottle of Glenlivet in the cupboard that's very lonely. Stop by for a drink, Tex

Bah! This is bourbon country! But I DO have some gen-u-wine white lightning from some friends up in the hills I can spare.

Heather Cream. Its creamed scotch. Last time I had some, I was passing the bottle around a hotel lobby with some good friends.....

That's it.

If you ungrateful philistines continue to put ice in good Scottish single malts, we're not going to make any more and then you'll have to put up with nasty blended nonsense. (Or 'floor sweepings' as it's referred to here).
Couple of drops of (soft) water to let the nose bloom and nothing else!

I'll forgive you this one time Luci 'cos I see you're from Tennesee and I spent an enjoyable September celebrating Mr J.D.'s birthday month.
Does anyone know how you go about getting a whole birthday month? Do I have to burn down lots of municipal buildings?

I take a Laphroaig, neat...the older the better. A Talisker or Bowmore will do in a pinch.

The only name I remember is Dewar's. I don't drink Scotch. Uh, Tuzilla, is your new icon animated?

No. Only the big guy can have animations. The icon has to be a jpg. Sorry.

Bailey's Irish Cream is the only thing I can contribute - but not looking to start clan wars

Sorry about the ice Martin, but if you had lived in Tennessee this summer then you'd have had everything you drank with ice, even the second pot of coffee. Rain is falling here and it is 57 degrees. Blessed Heaven!!!!!! I love Tennessee summers but this one tested everyone. Our pond has been dry for at least 3 months and we've had to water the livestock with tap-water from hoses. I've not acquired a taste for Jack but many here cut their teeth on "Jack Black". It goes into cakes and pies and various and sundry other treats at Thanksgiving and Christmas. My husband agrees with you, NO ICE!

I sipped a few drams of Heather Cream in a hotel lobby with some good friends once...

I drank my scotch with just a little bit of water - no ice. My daddy taught me how to do it. Of course, that was many years ago. Never touch any of it nowadays...

Whilst on the Royal Mile in Edinburgh we visited a popular Scotch market and me partner took to the scotch tastin'. It was but a wee half hour when the wee little drams accumulated and me partner came to me and said, "I Tink we need a cuss, I mean case of Heather!" Eesusbejesus, you are right as usual!

As for me, if you want to use the ice, try Edradour (Scotland's smallest distillery) natural cask strength. And if you are a fan of peat, try Signatory Vintage, an Islay single malt that will let everyone in the room know that you are about to pour.

Justin, it is with great sorrow ... Alas, at least maybe this means 2.0 is closer than it might have been.

After 50 years of sampling Scotches ...

Please NEVER add ice! Cooled Scotch loses its flavours and the ice gradually dilutes - both ultimate sins! If you insist, then desecrate cheaper blends in that way, but NEVER a malt!
The same applies to other additions - ginger beer, lemonade, bitters and other heathen practices. Admittedly, some blended brands might need disguising or diluting!

As for malts, they MUST be taken neat or - as I prefer - the smallest drops of spring water which I feel blossoms out the tastes.

Malts are a very, very personal choice. There are as many tastes as there are malts - hundreds of 'em. My personal preferences are for the Islays, for their peat. And my favourite of these is the Ardbeg.

But my preferences are irrelevant. You need to put in your own 50 years of practice to determine your own choices!

A friend of mine got me hooked on Scotch& Soda when I was in the Army in the sixties. He would only drink Johnny Walker Red, nothing else. We were on a three day pass in Kansas City before going overseas when we were in a bar that did not have JW Red so he drank beer and I had the bar scotch which was, unfortunately, Vat69. Later that night I got so sick I spread my breakfast, lunch and supper all over downtown KC. To this day I will not touch the evil liquid in any form or brand. Now,,,,,Jack (black) Daniels is another story.

I'm not a scotch drinker, but years ago on my birthday a bartender buddy of mione slipped me a shot of some 24 year old single malt.

It was better than sex.

Certainly *way* better than married sex.

What's "married sex"? (My wife doesn't know either.)

I salute Surreyman's preferences ... of course he lied about the 50 years, more like 56 years ... and his spring water suggestion, lead free of course. As for the sex issue (or no issue) the first is the best; Then more build in their own way until your taste buds are ready for the morning dew (or do) and you should be reintroduced.

Looks like everyone has a different opinion and preference when it comes to drinking Scotch.

And, regarding the sex, I see two wonderfully mature, warm, delicious and intelligent opinions, then there's one that reeks of little boy talk.

Well certainly better that Smaug's wife's married sex anyway.

You've had sex with Smaug's wife?

Eesusbejesus  (Level: 75.0 - Posts: 3640)

Is that going in your quiz?

Well, this has taken an ugly turn.
