Ok, I've made my love of Maker's well known. But it's not an either/or thing - I like bourbon, and I enjoy good scotch too. So, favorite scotches out there?Oban is one of me faves. Not as "peaty" as Laphriog, but good mellow smoky sippin. Aye. :(

LOL - yeah, barley, corn, it's all good. Not above a little Jamesons' on the rocks either, which is probably sacrilege to a devout scotch afficionado as well.

Shammer, I'm with you on MM. I like to breaking the red wax seal on a new $30 bottle (the same size I think you get for $24 wherever you live, you dawg) and hearing that deep gurgle-gurgle-gurgle. :(

Glenlivet works for me! Also add Jamiesons to my list. I don't do Scotch so that's not on my list, but for burbon I like Ol' Grandad's 101 proof. My more recent favorite drink is Vodka. Not the regular junk that most people associate with the word, but the good stuff. Stolichnya Gold is the best readily available brand, but we had some Russian visitors here and they brought the real thing that is made in Samyra. Its smooth like table wine (it is generally drunk like wine with dinner) and carries a punch that will knock you into next week. Wish I could get it locally.jed

Jed- I believe Glenlivet and Jameson's are both scotches. The former being a "whisky," and the latter a "whiskey." Course, to confuse matters further, bourbon is also a whiskey, but not a whisky. But as a fan of liqour made from tubers, you're off the hook.Kidding. :cool:

The famous historian and chronicler Raphaël Holinshed wrote the following about the results of distillation of malted barley in his "Chronicles of England, Scotland and Ireland" in the 16th century:"Being moderately taken, it slows the age, it cuts phlegm, it lightens the mind, it quickens the spirit, it cures the dropsy, it heals the strangulation, it pounces the stone, it repels gravel, it pulls away ventositie, it keeps and preserves the head from whirling, the eyes from dazzling, the tongue from lisping, the mouth from snuffling, the teeth from chattering, the throat from rattling, the weasan from stiffing, the stomach from womblying, the heart from swelling, the belly from wincing, the guts from rumbling, the hands from shivering, the sinews from shrinking, the veins from crumpling, the bones from aching, the marrow from soaking, and truly it is a sovereign liquor if it be orderly taken."Scotch - it's a health drink. :(
