Well played, sir. Well played.

All scotch and whiskey is a ripoff. Why would you want to pay 30 to 40 extra dollars for a bunch of tannins and other impurities which cause hangovers, foul taste, etc. Pure grain alcohol diluted in fruit juice is the cheapest, most efficient, and pure forms of potable alcoholic beverages and they leave no hangover and contain zero impurities.

I used to be a scotch drinker like you, then bourbon took me to my knee.

I dont drink scotch to get drunk (same with red wine). I enjoy the taste. The process of taking something simple and putting it through a process that makes it amazingly complex is wonderful.

If you dont like it, dont drink it.

yert: cbackous: Fuggin Bizzy: Not a fan of Glenfiddich - I prefer Jameson, myself. (I know, they're not exactly the same kind of booze, depending on how familiar you are with whisky vs. whiskey.)

There, I name-dropped a $30-$35 bottle of Irish whiskey. It's not very obscure. You've probably heard of it, and can easily acquire some at your local liquor store if you're interested.

that is more of a scotch vs whiskey thing...

I can drink about any scotch in the world. jameson or any mash whisky will make me puke. (this is due to a failed koolaid bourbon experiment when I was 12)



LMAO, you too?!

If you can suppress your snobbery for long enough, I highly recommend the "connoisseur" tour (yes, I know, stupid name) at the Glenfiddich destillery.

It includes a very interesting tour around the destillery, and ends up with a tasting session of all their whiskys, including the very nice 15 year old Solera and my favorite, the 21 year old Gran Reserva.

I love Scotch, and the high is different than any other liquor. The best is throw in 1 part drambuie and 2-3 parts scotch. It's like heaven in a glass.

Hangovers don't work that way!


Yes they do:

A 2009 study provided evidence that darker-coloured liquors, such as bourbon, cause worse hangovers than lighter-coloured liquors, such as vodka. The higher amount of congeners found in darker liquors compared to lighter ones was indicated as the cause. Studies that attempt to compare hangover producing potential and hangover severity of different alcoholic drinks suggest the following ordering (starting with the least hangover-inducing): distilled ethanol diluted in fruit juice; beer; vodka; gin; white wine; whisky; rum; red wine; brandy.

DrunkenBob: Sybarite: Is this the thread where I display my drinking superiority by name dropping $400/bottle 30yr Scotch?

That's be more a display of taste and purchasing power. Drinking prowess is determined by your ability to stomach vile swill like radiator moonshine, pruno, and rubbing alcohol.

You go to hell and you die, sir! When you grow up you'll come to love the taste of various forms of alcohol. Until then, if you just want to get high cheaply may I suggest sniffing glue? ;)

Is Glenfiddich that bad? I have some that I got as a gift and I can't say I really like it. My favorite is Balvenie Doublewood which is just scrumpy, but I consider myself a casual, uneducated scotch drinker?

I prefer whiskey on the rocks to whiskey neat because I like the way the taste slowly and continuously changes as you work down through the glass. YMMV.

If it is cast strength I will add a little water or an ice cube or two to it. Never more than that.

Pocket Ninja: Glenfiddich drinkers won't notice.


Ah, so you know about Glenfiddich, huh? I used to drink it years ago, when it was an 86 proof, 10 year old whiskey. It wasn't the best single, but it was reasonably good. Then it was bought by the Americans and they immediately dropped the proof to 80 and the age to four years. It became swill. So once the original stuff was gone, I quit drinking it.

What do you get when you're swimming in whiskey?
Drinking and diving can be rather risky.
The barley's full of skin and the hops have got hair.
Didn't I read this in Up...ton Sin-clair...

Another voice for liking Glenfiddich 12+. It's my second favorite Scotch behind MacAllan, although I'm still very much learning and exploring.

Don't confuse it with Glenlivet, which tastes juuuuust like mud.

Yes they do:

Stupid 2009 study...


I get different hangovers depending on what I drink. Wine gives me headache handovers and beer gives me barfy hangovers. After heavy whisky* consumption, I still feel drunk most of the next day, but don't feel particularly sick.

*Contirbution to Whiskey Snob bit: Glenmorangie or Laphroaig preferred.
