As a bachelor I am hard pressed to find an ice cube up in this fridge. "A man needs a maid"

I will try your advice though :)

Blanton's is great. Aside from the real good shit like that I usually shy away from the Bourbon and rye and head more towards the Irish whiskeys because I'm a bit of a sissy. Anyone ever try Knappogue Castle? It's a single malt Irish Whiskey. I'm a big fan. They're a smaller distillery and they vary slightly by vintage (they have a date on the bottle like wine). I get their cheaper bottle (aged 10 or 12 years) and it's worth looking for.

Had dinner in downtown Denver last night and tried the one on the right. Excellent stuff.

Unfortunately you have to make the hike up to Fort Collins, Boulder, Loveland or Colorado Springs to purchase the beer as it isn't available yet for mass consumption in or around Denver. I'll have to make a special trip in the near future. Here's the article I found about the beer itself. http://drinks.seriouseats.com/2011/11/r ... orado.html

And here's the web-site for the beermaker. http://www.crookedstave.com/

Other ones I'd recommend include: Alesmith X & Alesmith Wee Heavy, Lost Abbey Devotion & Lost Abbey Judgement Day, Ballast Point Sculpin IPA, and perhaps my newest favorite:

mistersmith wrote:Deads, you're drinking the aged Jameson? Put a few ice cubes in. Give it a few minutes...right around the time sweat shows up on the glass you should be good. The water "opens it up" and you'll get the full flavor. Don't feel like you need to stir or mix it or anything. Most super-complicated tasting note stuff is absolute horse manure, but the right amount of water in some whiskey can help.

But the real only rule of drinking whiskey/whiskey/scotch/bourbon/rye is...however the eff you like it is the proper way to drink it.


Well put.
Only recently began drinking scotch. Favorite so far is a Glanfiddich 15......with only a couple ice cubes.
Seems to open it up perfectly for me.

Laphroaig 10 is good, too.

Currently making peace with a couple Old Rasputins. About the best beer in the US.
