Knob Creek??? :D

 

Every Brit would explode in laugh!! Because of implications... :)

 

Not to mention 9 yr old... :D It's very very bad! :)

 

even worse. 2 U$D for chunks of frozen tap water?  :blink:

 

What is "neat"? (I guess something cheap to rip off even more money)

 

 

 

 

 

training wheels whiskeys. hmmm. Well anything Lowlands or Irish are pretty safe. Japanese are also very mild.

 

 

Neat in my US language (albeit not used to USian version) means without ice or water. At least neat in Europe means that.

Interesting. I will have to try a bottle.

This is my go to whiskey.  I call it whiskey for people who usually don't like whiskey.

OMG!  Jamison's Irish Whiskey Stout.  WOW!  My new tipple.  A wee dram with one ice cube is sooooo smooth.

Have you tried Connemara? A lightly peated irish, if you want to dip into peated, but do not want to be hit with a scottish peat hammer. ;)

 

 

irsih national anthem (sort of kind of)

 

 

it is St. Pádraig's day! Sláinte Mhaith!

I'll go get some Connemara and try it.  I love me some Jamisons.  I also got a bottle of Glenlivet 15 year old for those times I want something with more peat.

Not a whiskey drinker, but had Tullamore Dew Original yesterday. Nice and smooth.

Just got a bottle of Sexton Single Malt Irish Whisky, and it is pretty decent.  A single ice cube opens it up very nicely.

Elitist bullshit, certain types and strengths of whiskey benefit from the addition of a small amount of water.  An ice cube is a perfectly acceptable way to add it.

Adding some water is a good thing but why would you want to lower the temperature of the whisky? That won't make it any easier for your taste buds to do their job.

To reduce the temperature to something close to the environment it was made in...

The bottle SUCKS!  The hexagonal shape makes for dribbles.

My current all time favorite is Jameson’s cask mates stout edition.  Just so nice, had a wee dram tonight.

Hooten and Young American Whiskey, by some of the Men who were in the Blackhawk Down fight.  It's good booze, buy some.  S/F....Ken M

Bit of necro but still. I was at Glenkinchie destillery a few years ago (SERIOUSLY HAS IT BEEN 22 YEARS??!!!) and asked what they thought about adding water or whatever to the whisky.

The answer was (in quite distinguished Scottish in Edinburgh) We have too rools. One, don't water anoder maans drink and don't steeel anoder maans weejf. Two, drink it with waaater, withooot waater or AS waater :D

 

On topic, I find many irish whiskeys to be rather mild and good for starting with. One exception, Power, don't try it.

 

BTW, in whiskey you can have ice :P

I'm pretty hammered on extra Anejo tequila right now.  It is really good stuff.  Drinking it like scotch.
