I used to swig on a bottle of jameson as a pal drove me back home from school back in the college days.

drank southern comfort back then too but won't go near it now

jim beam is a fav as is jack daniel
makers mark has some stuff they only sell at the factory that is great someone gave me that once
used to like yukon jack but lost the taste for that too.

capt morgan PRIVATE STOCK is my current fav

I was given a bottle of ron rico from peurto rico once and that was really good spiced rum.

I had some good stuff on the trip to austin .....

ultimately I was not real picky when it comes to drink except for beer but my stomach dictates the quantity and quality now

Well my bottle of Jameson 18 YR was happily accepted by Kevin this afternoon at which time he suprises me with a bottle of GlenDronach Original aged 12 years Irish Scotch Malt.
Unfortunitly I HATE SCOTCH.
He tells me that I should be careful when drinking this stuff.I will probably have a drink of it and find someone else who likes Scotch and hand it off. :cool: GWB

It costs a fortune but is it a good whiskey or is it overated and just high priced?
Any thoughts on Jameson 18 Yr ?
I hope that he will be happy with it and not punch me in the mouth.
Me personally if any of you out there want to send me some Whiskey for Christmas ( or any time ) I drink Segrams VO only.If you need an address to send it to PM me. :p GWB
The Bushmills/NI thing seems rather petty, never heard of anyone hear express such a prejudice. Jameson used to be made in Dublin but now in Midleton near where I live, and the basic product is very good, not sure if the 18yo is THAT MUCH better. I like to tell my Scottish freinds that the top end Scotch whiskys I've tasted are almost as good as the Irish!

Yeah, it's also fun to tell Scots (like my wife) that the Irish invented bagpipes, gave them to the Scots, and they STILL haven't got the joke!

Well I poured a glass of the GlenDronach 12 YR Scotch and put a splash of water in it a few cubes of ice and let it get good and cold.I then very carefully took in the aroma of it and thought this smells pretty good so I put the glass up to my lips and took a good slug of it and??????? :eek: :eek: :eek: :eek: :eek:
AHH SHIT THIS STUFF TASTES LIKE ROTTEN PEATMOSS.
Im sorry ,JMHO, I am not out to offend anyone who enjoys Irish Scotch but after brushing my teeth 12 times , one for each year that Scotch was aged I still couldnt get that NASTY taste out of my mouth.
Oh well its just not my cup of Booze so I will be sticking to the Canadian Whiskey.GWB

Ah, but you must wait to taste the flavours behind the rotten peat moss...
subtle bits of composting caramel, putrid peach pit, and greasy coffee grounds.

Maybe you just have to be in the mood.

For the adventurous, you may want to invest in future hangovers with Shelter Point Distillery. It will be ready for consumption in a few years...

Hard to imagine anyone of Celtic heritage letting any spiritus fermenti get to be 18 years old. Question for Sycamore: Can anyone buy poteen these days? And is it any good?

It's illegal you know...

Any I've tasted has been purely 'functional'. What's the Sligo connection, Sligoman?

They admit that Irish whiskey is 'smooth', but that 'smooth' is for wimps.

"What's the Sligo connection, Sligoman?"

Not much. My great great grandfather and I have the same name. He emigrated in 1852, with quite a few others, from the Sligo area. He wound up in Penngrove/Petaluma, CA, where he acquired some land and became a gentleman farmer. Died in 1911. I've been to Sligo a couple of times and enjoyed the place a great deal. When I needed a name for this board, it just popped into my head.
