That single malt is amazing.

I didn't host that Irish night. :smile:

Personally, I like Bourbon but Tequila is my fave by far. :devil:
I don't like Bourbon, too sweet, too perfumed for me, and i don't trust myself on Tequila. So i stick to my single malts and Irish beer like Guinness and Kilkenny, or a summer beer like Corona with a slice of lime.

Jameson, especially the Black Barrel version. On cold days I also enjoy Glenfarclas 105.

Crown Royal Harvest Blend - #1. Because it's rated the best whiskey in the world and #2 because it's proudly Canadian like me LOL...

I have some good whiskey (Knoclkando 18, laphroaig 10, Nikka...), but I prefer the very old rum (Neisson, JM, clément...) and some extra old single cask but it starts to cost more

Personally my taste is quite broad when it comes to whiskey/whisky(scotch), I mean there’s one (or more) for just about any occasion.

Generally I prefer the smoother delicately balanced profiles with subtle hints of honey or caramel delicately frolicking against stone fruits or citrus with nutty undertones rooted with a gentle warming spice of cinnamon or clove.

Sometime I’m after a rich fruity date or raisin finish with licks of dark bitter chocolate and roasted coffee caramel undercurrents.

On the odd occasion I may even crave a heavy peaty, smokey, oaky/woody medicinal malt with punch in the face spice notes of chilli and black pepper.

I drink whiskey and soda, an Irish mule, a ginger whiskey, a whiskey sour or a whiskey smash. I’m not impartial to a Manhattan, a Rob Roy, a sazerac or a good old fashioned. After a meal an Irish coffee or when I’m ill a hot toddy. And last but not least of course on the rocks.

I should have called this an ode to whiskey, also I’ve realised I’m probably an alcoholic :devil:

Have a bit of a Japanese collection on the go at the moment, they are doing some truly amazing things

Oh yes please, a friend bought us a bottle of Ron Zacapa XO which is now a staple in our drinks cabinet

I already had Zacapa XO and it stays in my memory. I like to discover new flavor, and there is a lot of diversity in both rum and whiskey. My roll of wine cellar is unfortunately limited to a dozen rum and 5 or 6 whiskey. I live in burgundy and drink often white wine (Meursault, Chassagne, Puligny, St Aubin, Montagny...) and red ( Mercurey, Marrange, Pommard, Gevre-Chambertin, givry, Rully, Aloxe Corton, Monthelie...) :rolleyes:

Your collection of japenese whisky is great, I do not have any for the moment. I discovered peated whiskey with a Nikka a few years ago :smile:

My favourite is without doubt ”Caol Ila” from Islay 18 year minimum & if you can push the boat out “Cask Strength”

My description of it is, peaty, oily, in a smooth way & “of the sea” almost medicinal. The distillery is in a cove tucked away from anywhere & weathered by the sea. It took me about 20 years to find my favourite (yes a lot of tasting :) approximately 85 different malts) but who’s counting!!

So I’ve got my favourite tipple & now my favourite bike! What more could I ask for? (p.s. married for 40 years, so happy with that choice as well!)

Alas my whisky drinking days are over☹
However I have fond memories of many a fine Scottish single malt and none of them were ever lacking!
But don’t let snobbery rule in your considerations and you’ll discover ever more delights.
Monkey shoulder is quite a cute little number should you dare to try.
Slange Var 🥃
