Scotch is my drink of choice. I have never had Macallan though, so I will have to check that out. I typically have a glass of Chivas Regal.

as far as whiskey i like Makers...Woodford Reserve is also really, really good. you can also give Gentelman Jack or Jack Daniels Single Barrel a try. i've never really gotten into the Walkers, but i say you spring for a bottle of Blue :-b

Gentleman's Jack and Jack Daniels Single Barrel, FTW!!! ;-D ;-D

the macallan single malts are generally considered one of the best, so yea give it a try. at costcos around here, they also have the glenlivet 12yr for $21 which is a very affordable quality single malt. i'd take these over blended stuff like johnny walker, although the green and gold are the vatted malts (blend of single malts). one blend i really enjoy though is jameson, a irish whiskey.

if you want to know more about what i think, check out my post in the liquor thread here: viewtopic.php?t=397751&start=10#p3159419

oh and please don't be like somebody here and mix the stuff with coke. :-b :-L


I bought the Macallan 12 this evening and took it to a friends to enjoy a glass. It was very good and I enjoyed the combination of all of it's smokey flavors. He brought out a bottle of The Balvenie 12 that he had and I tried that as well. I liked the Macallan more, but The Balvenie was good too. The Balvenie was a lot more smooth and didn't have as much of a "burn," but the Macallan had a lot more of a flavor profile that I enjoyed.
You have no frame of reference, Donny. You're like a child who walks into the middle of a movie...

i got me a bottle of jameson yesterday, and damn it's smooth as butter. definitely my favorite blend. it's the anti-chivas/crown.
you know i tell when alcohol is clean/pure? you don't get toxic sore leg syndrome the next day. everytime i drink american whiskey i get the toxic legs syndrome. if i drink a good single malt or nice blend like jameson, i could almost not even remember i drank the night before.
