Man how I do love me some Kickin Chicken. MMMM

Yes, because nothing improves the value of a brand like over-saturating the market. Why, just look at how well California Pizza Kitchen is doing.

Wild Turkey. Now that sounds good for tonight.

Wild Turkey 101 is pretty good for the price.

Wild Turkey. When Jack Daniels just isn't enough to stave off the withdrawals.

Wouldn't Wild Turkey have to start making whiskey to double production? Last I checked, it wasn't made in Ireland (where the only real whiskey is made).

Whiskey isn't like champaign; you can fermint your corn squeezin' any where you want.

generally Scotch has a different spelling when referred to as Whisky

There are probably a few Scotsmen who would disagree and wonder why you are spelling it wrong. It's spelled "Whisky", no e, to them.

But, depending on where you ferment it, you spell the word "whiskey" differently.
It's Irish Whiskey, Scotch Whisky, Canadian Whisky, and, according to US BATF specifications, American Whisky. However, the hillbillies in that part of America do not learn how to spell. It is an achievement to them, to label their bottles anything other than "XXX".

its Spelt Uísque you lowland sassenach git! And it is short for Uísque Beatha which for ye non gaels is "The Water of Life" or in the Latin: Aqua Vitae....which is why those bonny viking lads called that charming imitation they distill "akavit"

I can only drink hard liquor when the wife's out of town. It gets ugly.

She's out of town this weekend.

And there was much rejoicing...

Please - Scotch is made in Scotland using different processes than Whiskey. Bourbon is a completely different process altogether. I have no idea what the Japanese claim to be making.

But, depending on where you ferment it, you spell the word "whiskey" differently.

Everyone in Ireland spells it whiskey. Since no one outside of Ireland makes whiskey, this is a moot point.

its Spelt Uísque you lowland sassenach git! And it is short for Uísque Beatha

A nice borrowing from Irish, by the way.

MMMMMM Macallan.

/Wild Turkey 101 is my Bourbon of choice.
 
2007-10-05 04:28:28 PM
Wild Turkey is GREAT Bourbon for mixing. Otherwise, nasty. Old Granddad is good cheap bourb.
 
2007-10-05 04:29:03 PM
Scotch has no right being labelled as Whiskey or Whisky or whatever. It should be called "Bull Testicle Sweat". Show me a man who enjoys scotch and I'll show you a man who likes to smell his own fingers after he scratches his ass, and/or has a dirty sock fetish.

Irish whiskey is the real stuff, and bourbon is great as a mixer.

Your newsletter. I'd like to subscribe to it.

If you were a woman I'd marry you for that first line alone...forcibly, if necessary.

You are my man-crush.

Not much into Bourbon, I'm more of a softer liquor guy (wines, beers) or I'll sip a scotch.. If I'm looking to get face-down in a gutter, I'll either drink Tequila or the absinth my boss brings me from the Czech Republic (mmm)..

Too bad WT is teh suck

My choices:

Sazerac Rye
Pappy Van Winkle (any year)
Jefferson Reserve 15 y/o
Connemara Peated Irish (cask strength)

Cheap & good:

George Dickel Tennessee (better than JD)
Old Overholt Rye
Bulleit Frontier Bourbon
Teacher's Cream Scotch
 
2007-10-05 04:44:44 PM
I'm easy to please. Gimme a bottle of Bushmill's and I'm set. If I'm drinking bourbon, Beam will do just fine.

And rocinante721 is right, Sazerac is great shiat.
 
2007-10-05 04:45:58 PM
I forgot my favorite Irish: Powers

Increase in the production of cheap whiskey? That's an economic indicator if I ever saw one!
 
2007-10-05 06:31:38 PM
Gag.

I can't imagine why anyone would drink that swill.

I mean, I love bourbon, but that stuff is just VILE.
 
2007-10-05 07:09:30 PM
Personally, I prefer grain liquor.

mmmmm Graves

You can get Old Overholt? I haven't seen it in years(live in L.A).

When I'm enjoying a whiskey I'm not worried about how it's spelled.

Excellent. More used bourbon casks will soon be available for making real Whisky. =)

Have you ever tried Locke's? That is my favorite Irish one, together with Connemara.
