Being completely fucking a-religous, I decided to take a stand upon my first sip of Jameson's. From that moment on, not a drop of Protestant barleycorn passed my lips.And perhaps the devout do get their rewards--a couple weeks ago a buddy of mine dropped off a gift he had picked up in Dublin: Image Ahhh....

Tough questions all. This is rough, and requires soul searching. Hmmm.#1 Makers Markn #2 Glenlivetn #3 Knob Creekn #4 LaphroiagI'm not nationalistically inclined. Ireland, the USA, Canada and Scotland all enter into the next 6 of the top ten. But to rate them for this post would require far better alcohol tolerance than I currently have -- at least doing it in one night, that is.n DANBOB

I am missing the scotch appreciation gene. I've tried. It all tastes like cologne to me, regardless of price. More for the rest of you. I'll stick with bourbon.

Technically, Dickel ( and Jack Daniels) are Tennessee whiskies, not bourbon. Nit-picking aside, Dickel's good stuff.

I love the Islay whiskys. Make that another vote for Laphroaig. I actually like their 10 year old better than the 15. Smithhammer -- if you like Laphroaig, try Caol Illa, which within the last year or two became available on this side of the pond again. Adams

As has been said, I tink (that's irish for think) that Jamiesons is Irish and not Scotch and that in itself is enough of a difference.As for Glenlivet, I believe that it is a single malt (unblended) scotch wiskey, and therefore different from most "scotch" which is a blended wiskey.Now I might be wrong, but I'll bet the lot of ya that if I'm wrong n you all have to take a drink of one of the brands mentioned in this thread, and if I'm right, theyou all have to take a drink of one of the brands mentioned in this thread.jed

I'm feeling half drunk just trying to make sense of the paragraph above. But for the sake of argument, let's say you're right - I think that means we all get to drink. And let's take it one step further and say I'm wrong - that means we get to have a second drink, right? Fine - we'll leave it at that for now, but be warned, I'm going to want to revisit this later.

I had no idea that so much could be said about turpentine in a bottle. Are there any dissenters besides me that think Scotch is shyte?I've got no problem with bourbon. Enjoy it in fact. However, there is little appeal for me in a libation that has the bite of a onion pickled formaldehyde that goes by the name scotch.If I stir within you rancor at my declarations, then so be it. Somebody get me a bottle of the Green Sauce...WT you down? Image

Single Malt Scotch is the nectar of the gods. A good Irish isn't too bad either. Even if it's Protestant Bushmills. Bourbon is akin to the fluid drip from the dong of a bull elephant in Must. Nasty shit, unless you're a cow elephant 'in season'.William
