Been drinking scotch.
I mostly like speyside scotchs: Glenfiddich, Glenlivet, Balvenie, Macallan, etc.
If you like Balvenie, I suggest Oban.
Yamazaki 12 yr. from Japan is my shit doe. It's not technically a Scotch, but shit is delicious.

Only stuff I fuck with. Hit or miss though, I don't think they have their own distillery. Give it a shot, if you get a good bottle, it's on par with some twice its price.

scotch/whiskey/bourbon is an acquired taste, it usually comes with age because as you get older you begin to appreciate it.

my theory is that when you're young you'll drink anything that gets you nice.  catching stoops only with 40s, cheap and lets you drink volume, up in the club drinking those sweet drinks (vodka cran, gin tonic, redbull vodka, etc).  

i found that as I've gotten older, I moved away from pounding beers and drinking less sugary drinks.  

when you reach a point in your life where you are making good money and you appreciate good things, especially when it comes to alcohol, whiskey/scotch/bourbon come into play.  For me the reasons are different, i'd rather spend more money on better liquor that I drink slower in less amounts that gets me just as if not more fucked up then drinking all night.  Usually, the precursor to this is taking shots of jamesons, then moving onto jamesons neat with the occassional jamesons and gingerale.  When you get to the point where you are drinking Scotch/Whiskey on ice or neat, you realize the taste factor.  Single Malt, Aged, Multi-blends, etc.  

My current rotation daily
Glenlivet 12
Bowmore 12
Johnny Black Double Barrell
Old Parr

Special occassions (New Years Eve - image below)
Basil Bourbon 
Glenlivet 18
Johnny Blue 

A bit of education when it comes to Johnny Blue.  Johnny Walker has a wide range of years for their barrels/labels, everyone knows it by Red, Green, Black, Gold, etc etc.  Each labele/barrel has x-amount of years associated with it.  Johnny Blue isn't something that has aged for 40 years, Blue is what Johnny Walker coined as a 'BLEND' of all years.

Oh yeah, totally forgot about Jameson, was on a Scotch wavelength. Jamie and 'spro is classic, also with a wee bit of ice is nice. I have Gibson's Gold when I visit my mum.

For the most part I stick with Tanqueray and Martini(or Noilly Pratt) with a twist of lemon for my drink of choice these days.

I've bought quite a few bottles - never the same kind twice yet just to try out different ones. currently have balvenie single malt 12 and bowmore single malt 12 in rotation but I dont know how I feel about the Bowmore, unless I got a bad batch, but it kind of tastes like an alcohol swab with no flavour. 

I'm definitely keeping my eyes peeled for new ones, including some of the suggestions you guys are throwing out. I've bought balvanie, bowmore, glenfiddich, glenlivet and aberlour so far. about time for a new one.

My boy was stationed in Kentucky and got me into bourbon.  Also, I've always been a budget minded drinker.  I determine my mood.  Am I trying to get drunk? Or am I trying to get a nice mellow buzz?  Am I celebrating?

 If I'm just trying to get drunk, there's no reason for me to guzzle the good stuff.  So I stick to bottom shelf stuff like Evan Williams.  Dirt cheap, but not bad as far as flavor goes, it's pretty decent. I don't dig sour mash though.  

Now, I don't go tossing $100's on liquor so I don't have a ton of experience, but so far, the best bourbons I've had have been Blanton's single barrel

I love this video.  It definitely makes me want to get a nosing glass and try some of the finer scotches.

90% of the time if I'm drinking liquor it will be whiskey.  Used to drink Jack and Jim when I was younger but I can't stand that shit nowadays.  Usually stick with Jameson, myself.  My friend likes to drink Tullamore Dew.  Its a little more expensive than Jameson, but its a lot better.

I was eyeing that Blanton's the other day at the LCBO, digging the top. If I'm in a bourbon mood, I stick to that Wild Turkey, shit's piffery with some ice.

This +9000, but you're making yourself sound old as fuck. I'm 21 and drink mostly whisky/bourbon/scotch.

My current line-up (I usually cop 1 every 2 weeks and keep rotating):
- Glenlivet 12
- Glenlivet 18
- Buffalo Trace
- Knob Creek 9 yr
- Macallan 12
- Maker's Mark

I drink neat most of the time. Add a couple of drops of water, if necessary.

Why do you ask this? You do know that most people on here aren't even old enough to buy a beer right? I'm not even sure if these frail, lightweight muh'fuckers have a stable enough bodily system to even handle a sip.

That Daniels and Jameson though.cool

May your neighbors respect you, trouble neglect you, angels protect you, and heaven accept you.

I think makers is more about the bottle than the whiskey.  IMO, it's not worth the price tag.  Drop the price about $10 to $15 and the price tag would make more sense. I feel like nigs are mostly paying for the pretty bottle.   But that single barrel Elmer T Lee is like $30 and is WAY better than Makers.  

Never get fooled by the bottle.

Blantons is one of my favorite bourbons. Taylor is another great one, but more smoky and expensive.

For Rye whiskeys, Tempelton hands down is my favorite. Lion's Pride from Chicago is a bang for buck whiskey if you can find it.



For that "How To Drink Scotch Whisky" video, I've done it a couple of times. Last night to start off my birthday, I had Glenlivet 18 out of one of those nosing glasses (not a snifter, but not a wine glass, but looks like a mix of the two). It changes the experience of drinking it drastically. My friend was drinking Green Label the same way next to me, and drinking that was intense for him due to all the peat and smokiness. It's true when they say that drinking anything out of different shaped glasses changes the taste of it. For the most part though, I'll continue to drink most of my scotches out of regular rocks glasses, and save the special glasses for when I ball out and get something like Macallan 25.

Working on a bottle of Hakushu 12 year from the Suntory Distillery in Japan tonight. (same guys that do Yamazaki)
