    Re: how to describe whiskey

    Last summer I went to my uncle's golf club for this member/guest deal and they had a scotch tasting. Some of them were really good but some were awful tasting to me. I was kind of drunk and asked the guy telling us everything where the BV was and the guy actually laughed and told me they probably didn't even serve that out of the well, which they didn't. He was the real deal too. He was wearing a kilt and had the full on accent.

    Re: how to describe whiskey

    I prefer a sweeter scotch to the very peaty ones, the glenmorangie portwood, and the Balvenie 21 year portwood are both good options.

    Re: how to describe whiskey

    No offense to the scotch drinkers, but the reason I like bourbon over scotch (in general) is the same reason I like beer over wine (in general).

    I ******* hate snobs.

    I can drink good wine, I can drink good beer, I can drink good whiskey/bourbon....et cetera...et cetera...When I say good, I mean well crafted. I don't mean the most expensive, well marketed thing out there. I enjoy the hell out of a locally produced 'cowboy whiskey' at $25 a bottle because it's produced on a pot still with a great system to get the heads and tails out of it. They also make a bourbon...I took a bottle to a 'scotch snob' friend of mine as a host gift for a holiday party...and the damn thing was gone before the end of the party and he asked if he could get another.

    The wine snobs will trot out the 'terrior' and the scotch snobs will do damn near the same thing.

    Ahh hell, I'm on a rant. Carry on, as you were.

    So you like bourbon over scotch, not because of any taste reasons, but because you think scotch is pretentious? gotcha. There are beer snobs too you know.

    Re: how to describe whiskey

    I had some Glennfiddich 12 year at a company Christmas party last night. Put me under the bus for sure. Seems like I only have scotch when I'm already drunk.

    Man up. Oh, wait...

    I have a coworker that would think much of this discussion is irrelevant as he thinks the only true scotch out there is the stuff made in Scotland. Yes, he's one of those.

    I'm not a huge hard alcohol drinker - I'm more of a beer snob, so I'm not as cultured when it comes to this discussion. That being said, I do like my black label Jack Daniel's (my dad likes the green label), and I can make a mean Tennessee Iced Tea out of it.

    Why would you mix booze that is more than one step above well level?

    Re: how to describe whiskey

    By law Scotch can only be made in Scotland. The general difference is that it is made in used oak barrels where, for example, Tennessee bourbon is always new barrels. Scotch is whisky but not all whisky is scotch.

    If you want whiskey, but not the burn there is....
