Scotch Or Irish

Once, when I was probably too young to be drinking, someone who was heading off to buy the drinks for the party asked me what I wanted.  I said "Whiskey".  So they came back with bottle of Jim Beam.

When I said "Whiskey", I meant Scotch.  My Dad always had a bottle of Dimple (Haig - in the house, and I developed a taste for it.

Many years later, I rarely drink.  But if I do, it's scotch and Coke.

Something else that's nice on a cold winter's eve is Irish Mist. (  A shot glass of that goes well with a cup of coffee (don't pour it in your coffee, drink them separate).

Ok, thank you. I'll keep an eye out for a bottle of that. Adelaide's a bit of a small place, so I don't know what my chances of finding that here will be, but it's good to know there's something that may be within my reach, financially.

There are a lot of single malts that are really good, but there is one that is easier on the wallet, as scotch goes, than the others. It is called Speyburn. <br />

Speyburn is rockin' fine hooch. <br />

It is a lighter color and has a somewhat lighter taste, but the aromatic qualities that I love are there in spades. The marketers are working on it, so the price has been edging up over the last couple of years, but you can still get it for a fraction of the big name single malts.

As far as I'm concerned, there is only one kind of whisky in the world, and it's all single malt

That sounds potent, Squirrel.<br />

Glenlivet? You're a fan of single malt scotch, ILWSO? A friend told that I need to try single malt. As far as I can remember, I haven't tried it yet, but when I was drinking regularly I don't think I was too aware of what I was drinking.<br />
<br />
If I start earning $$$ again, I'll look for a nice bottle of Glenlivet.

I'm with you, when I order whisky, what I mean is Scotch, and usually what I really mean is Glenlivet. Now, if I could just get my bartender trained.......

You know, I have never put scotch with anything other than Drambuie. Always a rusty nail, but two shots of scotch instead of the usual one. One shot for one is just too sweet. This is what the gods drink.<br />

Otherwise, I don't even like ice in mine.
