Bourbon, Whiskey, Spirits thread


#182

I like the islands

Especially isle of Jura

But these days I’m not into the hard stuff

My wife loves whisky and bourbon though


#183

I’m not much of a Scotch drinker. I have tried! Although, I am watching the Outlander series with my girlfriend at the moment and it’s made me contemplate it. Jesus, that show is a little too much at times. The last two episodes of the first season were fucking hard to watch.


#184

I hate that show


#185

my wife read all the books.

and of course we had to watch the show…a time travel movie to scotland …and then back to the 1700’s in america…utter fucking garbage.

but in the same breath…she hates better call saul and i love that show…


#186

Yeah. It’s not great. The rape stuff really bothers me.


#187

Agreed


#188

Bulliet is a fine go to for cocktails, highballs and shots. I don’t have anything against it except that there are bourbons and ryes as good or better than Bulliet out there for less shekels.

And I’m not really a Scotch person either although I won’t say no to a gift if it’s unpeated. Also, as an aside, i think that all Japanese whiskey wants very badly to be bourbon but can’t make the claim because of the technical rules for Scotch.


#189

Do you have any Japanese recs, though? I always see one or two on rec lists.


#190

You can skip the Japanese whiskies, Ely. I have tried several and they all seem overrated.


#191

Skip them. Buy scotch for a better price.


#192

I got my husband a bottle of Laphroaig 10-year, then took the idea of samplers that Ely got and threw them all together for his gift. I know nothing of Laphroaig, but the reviews seemed promising.


#193

It’s harsh
But maybe he’ll like it


#194


#195

Love it and stealing it!


#196

He loved it! The smokiness won him over. I tried a sip and told him I felt like I was standing over the smoker with the after taste it left.


#197

Not a lot of peaty folks here.

Glad he liked it!


#198

Been trying to holler at’choo about this, Nick.


#199

Dude! I have been trying to track some down myself. From my understanding, it’s impossible to get right now.

However, I finally tracked down this stuff down! It’s wonderful.


#200

Monkey, I bought a bottle for you! You tried tracking it down for me, so I got you one. Thanks, man! I can’t wait to hear your thoughts. Be honest with us. My brother didn’t care for the finish. He said it almost had a waxy finish. I agreed with him, but I like wax lips.


#201

Oh wow! That’s beyond generous! I don’t even know what to say. Jeebus.
