    how to describe whiskey

    I am a whiskey drinker except for Johnnie walker. Someone asked me what I don't like It but I couldn't describe the flavor other than it is different than other whiskey. What do you like and how do you describe Johnnie walker?

    Re: how to describe whiskey

    Johnnie Walker is a Scotch. You probably just don't like flavor from the peat. The peat is pretty sedate in Johnnie Walker compared to a lot types of Scotch, but it is still there.

    Johnnie is a blend.
    Go buy yourself some Glenlivet, Laphroig, or my favorite Glenmorangie.

    If somebody doesn't like peat that is a horrible idea. You can't just jump straight from bourbon into something like Laphroig.

    I feel scotch has a lot more flavor than other whiskeys (to some, the taste may be too strong). Have a drink of a good, single-malt then have a drink of whiskey. The whiskey will taste very bland.

    Re: how to describe whiskey

    Well you have many different styles from scotch, Canadian, bourbon, Tennessee whiskey, etc.
    when it comes to scotch, an affordable quality scotch would be glenfidith(sp) 12 yr
    canadian whiskey, crown reigns supreme in most people's minds though I feel revel stoke is very under rated
    bourbon, I would recommend you try Woodford Reserve masters collection. Cheap alternatives would be Jim beam and red stag.
    Tennessee style would be you Jack, Gentleman jack is nice and smooth.
    finally Irish Whiskey, Jameson 16 yr nadurra was my favorite, but standard Jameson isn't bad either.

    See, I would say the exact opposite but I never cared much for scotch.

    My favorite is Glenfiddich.

    There's some good single-malt Irish whiskeys, too; Connamera and Tyroconnell being two that come to mind.

    A good bottle of bourbon tops them all, though.

    The OP never said they didn't like peat, but I agree that it could be that component.

    All bourbon is whiskey, but not all whiskey is bourbon.

    Re: how to describe whiskey

    I switched to Scotch and Irish whiskey drinking them on the rocks.....I used to be a big Crown drinker....now Crown is to bland for me it almost hurts I don't like it as much.

    Re: how to describe whiskey

    Johnnie Walker has a smoky taste to it IMO. I have always enjoyed whiskey, and about 6 months ago I was treated to a few glasses of JW Blue on the rocks. Needless to say, nothing will ever be so good. Smoothest I have ever drank. Very expensive though. $200+ a bottle

    Re: how to describe whiskey

    Yeah JW is a blended scotch. I very much prefer single malt. Go for Glenlivet single malt aged 18 years. It's about a $75 bottle. But I'd put that bottle up against most $200+ bottles of scotch. Best bang for the buck IMO. Amazing drink.
