I was wondering what everyone's favorite whisky is(or other, as your pleasure may run). My favorite is 18 yr old Glenmorangie. It's smoooooth.

I'm also a huge fan of darker beers. Stouts, porters, etc...

Belly up folks...the bar is open!!

I'm not a big alcohol drinker, but I do like a Florida brewed hard cider; Kelleys Hard Cider. Only available on tap in the area right now. sad.gif

Other than that, I like Bacardi Twisters and Sangria. Don't care for beer or wine.

Ah, she's got a good head on her shoulders. biggrin.gif

Glenfiddich 30yr is the best fighter fluid that's ever passed my lips. Here's what Glenn's got to say about it.

This prestigious single malt Scotch whisky is for those who appreciate the finer things in life. Seductively woody, with substantial oakiness and lush notes of sherry, this is an evening whisky, perfect for indulging yourself and treating friends.

Expect a companionable silence as the complex nose is inhaled and the woody essence, with sweet floral top notes, is savoured until the final fading moments of a honeyed finish.

If you want to see the rest of the line, here they are.

Special Reserve 12 yr I drink this mostly. The cheapest Glenn is still a premiere whisky.
Caoran Reserve 12 yr
Solera Reserve 15 yr I've had a bottle of this as well, and it's a nice upgrade from the 12 yr.
Anchient Reserve 18 yr
Gran Reserva 21 yr
Glenfiddich 30 yr
Glenfiddich Liqueur This is the first I've heard of this, and MUST have some soon. (starts making Christmas list)

Now we get into the rare stuff. drool.gif
Glenfiddich 40 yr
Glenfiddich 50 yr A bottle of this stuff sold at a charity auction in Italy in the 90's for £35,000. blink.gif
Vintage Reserve 1963
Rare Reserve 1937

While tracing my Scottish heritage I have also started the quest for my favorite single malt Scotch. My current favorite is The Glenlivet.

user posted image

I have tried The Maccallan, Laphroaig, Talisker, Glenmorangie.
I want to try Glenfiddich, Knockando, Lagavulin.

The word "whisky" itself comes from the Celtic 'uisgebaugh' (the Caledonian spelling) or 'uisgebeatha' (the Hibernian spelling), and means "water of life."

A cut-crystal tumbler,
at the end of the day,
pour about three fingers of the golden nectar,
no ice, no water,
relax and reflect.

One of life's great pleasures.

No RobertH, I believe that about covers it laugh.gif

I also need to mention my sentimental fave of Jack Daniels. I was teethed on it and I've had this whisky thing ever since (although it's Gentleman Jack now). rolleyes.gif

Haven't tried that one. Did try a single malt from the Isle of Islay once...made me think of unleaded gas. There are undoubtedly those who love it, but I'll pass...
