Default Whiskey/bourbon

Found myself having one or two whiskeys most nights now before bed

An attempt to keep calories low whilst also helping me go to sleep.

Bloody love the stuff currently sipping a makers mark on ice

Always have a single malt on the go, half Scots so itís in the blood. Having said that, I do love a good Bourbon, Buffalo Trace especially, lovely tipple.

I find it difficult to believe that those who drink it actually enjoy it. Mate of mine here drinks it and he looks like heís in pain when heís doing so. He drinks some pretty expensive stuff and told me you didnít know what I was missing.

One night he eventually talked me in to having one and he paid about 30 quid for one for me. I tasted it and said yes it tastes like whiskey and gave it him back.

Blends are revolting imho. Never had a nice one. Might as well drink Bells

But certain Scottish single malts rooling;

Ardbeg/Laphroaig types are all I will touch

Laphroaig is something else. Love Talisker too. Had a few Caol Ila in Edinburgh last month so I'll pick up a bottle of that next time I see it in the supermarket. What's Ardbeg like in comparison to these, I've heard it's more smoky?

Not quite as peaty as Laph, and a bit sweeter, but same ballpark. Great shout with talisker... the Holy Trinity those three imo

I've not had Caol Ila... I'll get on it

Glenlivet is a nice drop.

I was gifted a bottle of Yamazaki 12 which didnít last long

Got a bottle of 12yo Redbreast for my birthday. I'm deliberately taking it easy as I don't want it to finish. Had a real test of my marriage when I found that my wife was using it for baking fruit cakes.

Redbreast is my go to these days.

I like Teeling too.

Will happily drink Jameson tbh - I just like whiskey.

Cardhu Gold is great if you see it on offer, usually £45 but have seen it about for £25 sometimes. Very mellow.

My step-dad is half Scottish so obviously loves the stuff.

Altho his current fave is actually a Welsh whisky - Penderyn.
