What type of whiskey does everyone like?. I like single malt scotch whiskey something like Bowmore which is peaty and smokey and tastes really nice.

Dear Toonhibby,

I was on a BA flight and happened to sit next to the Operations Director at Bowmore. She asked me which malts I liked and I told her Bowmore. I told her I had a bottle of Dawn,Dusk,Darkest, Mariner and a few others. I told her I was going on the Hebridean Princess and would be stopping at Bowmore. She gave me her card and told me to ring her up when I got there.

I took the tour, and went into the tasting room. She opened up a special cabinet and asked me what I would like to try. I said, 16 year old, sherry finish, cask strength!

It was wonderful!!!!

Hi Talisker92 your website is very informative you certainly have had some wonderful trips, I have not been to Bowmore distillery but would love to some day visit it. Sorry Memsy87 never really liked Irish whiskey but everyone to their own.

Irish WhiskEy - Powers.

 

Scotch Whisky, blended Teachers. Malt a tie between Caol Ila and Edradour closely followed by Laphroaig and Talisker.

 

For something completely different Mellow Corn, corn whiskey.

 

We visited Islay in 1999 and did all the distilleries which were open at the time. I'll be back one day to visit them all again!

Came here to make the same point tartanexile81 made. Two pedants in a pod. :D

 

Whiskey - Bushmills. If you can get hold of the 25 year-old, all the better.

 

Whisky - Depends on my mood. Laphroaig if I want to go peaty. Otherwise Jura or a Macallan (I quite like 18).

Whisky: For my husband, it is Laphroaig almost exclusively. For him, the smokier, the better. I'm more Macallan. I haven't tried Jura.

Bowmore is an Islay Malt whisky, however I prefer a Laphroig from that region. In contrast I would always recommend anyone who does like a quality malt to try Inchgower, a Speyside malt.

 

Of course, there are hundreds to try and I have not even scratched the surface after nearly 40 years a abusing my liver.

My daughter was recently overseas in Japan and brought me back a big bottle of Johnny Walker Double Black, very smooth.

 

But I do enjoy a Glenmorangie or a Jameson Irish, the latter is very good value.

I just got a bottle of Johnny Walker Explorer Club Collection, The Spice Road, and it is excellent. I got it on a BA flight. It apparently is only available on board and at DF shops

As far as Bowmore, try the various expressions-Dawn, Dusk, Mariner
