You never know what you'll find on Cruise Critic!

 

Favorite Whisky: Balvenie 21 Port wood

Runner Up (Totally different style, of course) Lagavulin 16

Guilty Pleasure: Unopened litre of Cao Ila 18. I'll eventually drink it, but it will never exist again...

 

American Whiskey: Jefferson Presidential 21. Has become as scarce as Pappy VanWinkle!

You are spot on with the Balvenie, but in the US it is over $200 a bottle!!

The problem with Lagavulin is it is so high in phenols, I do not like it

 

I just got my hands on some of the Johnny Walker Explorers Slub Silk Road and enjoyed it

But going to the Pot Still on Hope Street in Glasgow was like making a pilgrimage LOL

Dang! I've got two bottles I got for around $179 each (military exchange, though). Just saw the state run monopoly in Virginia has increased it to $219 a bottle, plus tax!!!!:eek:

 

But, I don't drink it much, so I'll probably keep buying it!

 

(The Doublewood is my vote for the best buy, quality for dollar, in whisky.)

I like Scapa 16 but there are lots of others that it is no effort to drink!

 

Recently tried Penderin (sic) Welsh whisky and it was really interesting, surprisingly good for a new(ish) product.

 

Some of the small batch whisks that Edradour produce are really good, some are only sold at the actual distillery, they do a cask stregths that is like liquid Christmas cake but with a punch to finish.

The best I ever have tasted is a Macallan 30 year old whisky aged in fine oak casks. Only ever had 2 glasses due to the cost but it is fantastic. :eek:But it was the most perfect whisky I have ever tasted.

 

On a more reasonable note. My usual whisky tipples are

 

Dalwhinnie 15 year old single malt

or

Jura Superstition.

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.

 

I do not like to be excessively pedantic but is not Whiskey an Irish drink not Scotch.  The Scottish version generally more popular is Whisky.

I will be around your abode in a few hours after I get there on the aeroplane LOL. Your collection sounds lubbly jubbly. My good stuff I got for Fathers Day (in Sept,) JW Double Black and Glenlivet has evaporated, strange that. Now I am down to JW Red Label, as a mixer with dry ginger or soda, a bit harsh straight or on the rocks.

 

When I fly on the those big flying machines, I like to ask (nicely) what is the best whisky you can serve me? Normally get something a little better than JW Red Label. All depends on which class one is flying of course.

 

Good health to you and all lovers of the 'Highland Nectar.' And the Irish Nectar too.

The pour on BA (First) is JWBlue. I asked for a Black in the Club at Heathrow and the Bartender said, sorry, we only have blue.

I am not going to play the spelling game. But here are my favorites

 

Daily on the Rocks. Johnny Walker Black

 

Occasionally Johnny Walker Green or 

Johnny Walker Gold usually neat

 

Highland Park Dark Origins neat

 

Special occasions neat Johnny Walker Blue

 

Macallan Anniverary 35 year old. A once a year or so dram neat

 

Blair Athol 30 year. An occasional Dram neat

 

In Irish Coffee, Jamesons. 

 

I have had others usually on an airplane or as a guest of a friend including Oban, Glenmorange, Talisker. Chivas 25 at my Nephew's, his favorite (Well, he is a senior partner in a statewide law firm, so money is no issue).

I like most single malts but my favourites are from the highlands.

 

My very fav so far is Tomatin but they do a superb range of differing styles so even within that distillery I prefer the 14 year old but even their cheapest "Legacy" is excellent. Not quite like any other I have tried.

I'm just back from Scotland and ticked the Campbeltown distilleries off my list.

 

Also popped into Glenturret, now owned by Lalique, and needless to say their new bottles are the best I have seen.

I am partial to the Jamesons range at the moment. I find Jamesons is smooth and easy drinking.

 

I did get a bottle of JW Green Label for Fathers day which is in September here in OZ. It is a nice drop too.

 

Crikey this is an old topic, I last posted on it in 2014 !!

 

Has anybody tried the Aussie single malts like the ones from Tasmania? Nice but expensive about $150 a bottle !  My son bought this one back from Tasmania for me a some months ago.
