    Good Whiskies what is your favorite tipple?

    The world that is whisky is a diverse one. There is Scotch, Bourbon, Irish whisky, Canadian etc etc...

    What I would like to know is what is your favorite tickle that you splurge on and also your regular tipple. I will go first.

    My splurge is Four Roses small batch.



    My regular tickle however is Old Overholt.



    What do you enjoy and why?

    your regular tickle.
    I think it's supposed to be tipple, as in 'tipsy', unless you're trying to get 'ticksy'... which sounds unpleasant.

    Anyway, a spoonful of Jameson's makes the coffee go down, so I hear.

    OK great so can you provide a little back story or did you just do your usual google nonsense?

    Four Roses is a globally recognised bourbon. So slamming it just makes me wonder that your are a complete wanker who is on the dole and lives in a tenement house. Some old dipshits....

    I rarely drink these days (it's been about six months since the last time), but when I do I like something decent.

    It's a bit expensive in LOS (though south of something like JW Blue), but I quite like this:



    I also keep a bottle of decent bourbon around (this is the best I've found in the local markets):

    There he goes. One of God's own prototypes. A high-powered mutant of some kind never even considered for mass production. Too weird to live, and too rare to die.

    Difficult question as Islay produces so many amazing Whiskys. Probably Ardbeg or Lagavulin.

    Went to a whisky tasting at the Conrad Hotel last week, and got pretty toasted...Good fun!

    Ive only tasted decent whiskey once, a 20 year old single malt that was given to me. It was lovely, really smooth
    I forget the name now, but before sampling that I thought all whiskeys were like that Bells or Grant's pish.

    I've eyed up the single malts and the Cognacs in Duty Free on a few occasions now. I could never bring myself to part with that much cash on alcohol and always come away with a bottle of Absolut voddy instead.

    I drink to get drunk anyway, let's face it, if Lager tasted that nice, why's there no market for Carlsberg flavoured ice lollies

    One of the best blended whiskeys I've ever had.



    Ya wont find outside of Scotland, or far from Glasgow. A local fellow in a pub in Ullapool told me about it. I did find two bottles on the Isle of Harris. Snapped them up I did!

    Ah, I've been known to partake in a wee dram from time to time.

    Of the regular malts - i.e not ones that are a silly price:



    Balvenie is a Speyside malt. It's distilled in a place called Dufftown, which is also where the better known Glenfiddich hails from. Balvenie's a fairly subtle whisky, so either just a small splash of water or a single ice cube works well with it for me.

    An honourable mention must go to Lagavulin, an Islay malt and a big, tough bruiser of a thing:



    Ideal to fill a hip flask with before setting off across a sodden, windswept grouse moor. It's definitely a useful fellow to have on the team for when the going gets tough, but I find it a bit too gung-ho for the more laid back, balmier Asian climes.

    Of the blends I probably prefer J&B:



    The base whisky is Speyside, but there's all sorts of bit and bobs from other distilleries in the blend.

    J&B is not always that easy to find, so as an alternative:



    TBH there's not much between Grouse, Bells, Teachers etc, but I always associate Famous Grouse with childhood summer holidays. Before going on holiday my father and I would make the trip into Perth so he could buy a case of Grouse from Matthew Gloag and Son. Then all the other family crap would be loaded into the car together with mother, siblings, dogs etc and we would set off for a week or so's holiday at some drafty house or other with various uncles, grandparents and the like somewhere in the west coast of Scotland. I was quite young then so didn't actually drink the stuff, but the trip to buy the Grouse was one of my first memories of doing 'man stuff'.

    Spool it on a few years and, as is borne out in Earl's post, I began to discover that there were all sorts of little distilleries/blenders scattered around rural Scotland.

    One favourite of mine that was relatively local to where we often stayed was:



    Te Bheag is a blend from the Isle of Skye, and is damn good stuff. Much more flavoursome than your normal supermarket blends (Grouse/Bells/Teachers et al) having a decent enough kick to allow you to probably run a small outboard motor if ever required.

    Being English I always assumed it was pronounced as 'Tea Bag' and could therefore only ever remember it as such. Asking for a bottle of Tea Bag would always cause a few sharp intakes of breath from the wee biddy in the local shop who, after pausing to give me the sort of disapproving look especially reserved for Sassenachs, would say 'Ye'll be wanting' the Chay Vek then?'

    "Aye lass, the Chay Vek".

    Damn fine whisky, was the official medicinal whisky for the US military during WW2. Compared to all the others it's like a health food! Which it is!

    For the price it really cant be beat. I love all the top shelf whiskies but I doubt most can afford to drink those on a regular basis.

    555 took me about three years before I was informed of that..thought it was rice wine!
    No aficionado of whiskies but Ben Moore suites me..first bought it cos they gave away a free glass...
    Actually Captain Morgan dark rum is my tipple of choice with a slice of lime.
