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)

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.
