Favourite whiskey?
#1
For me it's gotta be:

Mix it with coke and it tastes awesome. Crown used to be my go-to but I like Jameson more now.

I used to enjoy whiskey (rye) when I was younger. Don't like it at all anymore.

We did tour the Jameson distillery in Dublin last summer which was pretty cool. I sampled a Jameson & ginger which wasn't too bad

I really enjoy Canadian Club 41 year old, but at $280.00 a bottle I don’t buy too many.

My more affordable go to of choice is Crown Royal XO.

That would cut in to the 5 figure watch budget, wouldn't it?

Nah, that watch was paid for years ago.

Good call on the Blanton's NS.

I got introduced to a few Japanese whiskeys last year. Good stuff!
Tokay Coffey 12 year is a gem!

Auchentoshan makes 3 nice single malts as well at an affordable price point.

Oban just came out with a $40 single malt that I plan on trying this weekend.

Occasionally I like a smoke-bomb like Laphroiag. For slightly less smokey, Johnnie Walker Black. For a more affordable but still good scotch; McClelland's Islay.

For Canadian whiskeys, I usually buy Gibson's Finest Rare.

Jameson is good for Irish whiskeys.

I think I've given up on bourbons. I just don't like them as much as a similarly-priced scotch or a less-expensive Canadian. But I'm willing to try.

But the important thing is none should be mixed with anything. Putting whiskey in Coke is for children.

I originally bought a bottle of Blanton’s for my dad years back and paid $80 for a bottle. Tried it and liked it however I didn’t want to pay $80’s for my own bottles. Found it in the LCBO a couple of years later for about $50 a bottle so I bought 3. Just finishing my last bottle and looked to restock however now it’s $70 a bottle.

I was gifted a Breville Smoke Gun for Christmas and have used it more for adding smoke to drinks then to meat and food. Last weekend I put a snifter of bourbon and a piece of cheese under a glass dome and filled it with oak wood smoke for a nice fancy afternoon snack.

Lagavulin or Laphroig for single malts. Lately, I've been enjoying Dewar's White Label. Its cheap, but has a very light taste.

Basil Hayden's bourbon is really smooth. Probably my favourite now. Blanton's is delicious too. My boos just completed the racing figure collection. 12 I believe.

Any whiskey-appreciation thread that starts with "mix it with coke and it tastes awesome" has a steep uphill climb to get back to respectability.

To be fair, I think most peoples' journey into the world of whiskey starts with it being mixed in coke or watered down with a wedge of lemon.

It's not just something you pick up one day and start drinking.

I enjoy Crown's Harvest Rye.  Great price point and flavour.

A few months back I took the whiskey tour at the Gretzky Winery / Distillery.  Product there was a giant steaming pile of dog poo.  In my opinion.

I drink mine straight. No ice. Occasionally, I'll add a drop of two of water depending on the whisky.

Co-op operates a World of Whiskey store in downtown Calgary that has one of the largest selections of Whiskey that I have ever seen. They have whiskey tastings every Friday afternoon and have everything from the $30.00 bottles of Crown Royal to the Balvenie 50-year old which will run you about $40,000.00. (That one would really cut into my watch money)

That would go down really nice with some Cola and ice.

For scotch, Lagavulin. I very rarely drink rye. I do like Jameson Irish whiskey for Irish coffee and picklebacks. I like Connemara Irish whiskey - another fabulous peat with a drop or two of water.
