Hi Gawdzilla,

Nice collection. Smile

The Glen Moray is a smooth drop and not too expensive. I have Auchentoshan, Ledaig, Aberlour, Craigellachie, Inchgower, Fettercairn.

A few years back I had some extra cash and bought some bottles from Gordon Macphail, under the heading of 'Conossieur's Choice'. The difference between a £30 bottle of whisky and a £60 bottle was most notable.

I'll try out the Balvenie next. Thumbsup

I've had Aberlour from your list, the others just made mine. Thumbsup

I shoot for the $40-$60 range for the fine. For everyday the Lismore, et al., are perfectly acceptable. We have a huge liquor store near us that advertises they have 700 whiskies. I asked them how many whisky. Only one of them knew what I was talking about. I hope he does the buying.

I'm four days sober, but I still have fond memories of Absinthe.

I also have fond memories of Absinthe,, although there have been a few nights on the Absinthe that I can't remember at all.Tongue

I've over-indulged in some familiar spirits, causing me to pray to the porcelin god in tongues, lol. Buick and Ralph were my mantra.

A friend brought me a bottle of absinthe she picked up Europe, no label on it. I was impressed that she got through Customs with that but she managed.

Haven't opened it yet, four years along. Drinking Beverage

Aaah, you know what they say: "Absinthe makes the heart grow fonder."

OK, I know it's bad. Unsure

I have a bottle of The Glenlivit 18 which I break out nite and again. I've also gotten very into bourbon lately. Woodford I'd my current preference, but I'll happily drink Markets as well. I've found a lot of good bourbons lately.

I always drink them neat or on the rocks. If your spirits need to be cut with something, you're drinking the wrong type.

BnW,

I have a glass of Glenlivet on the go right now. Smile

However, good bourbon can match a good scotch. Over here we have the Woodford, Jack Daniels et al. I like Buffalo Trace, which is mid price but tastes better to me. Also Makers Mark is pretty good.

Bourbon is a sweet drink, a bit like Scottish lowland malt. It doesn't have that salt and peat flavour of the sea and the hills. Maybe the sweetest of bourbons is Four Roses, a rare find here in the UK.

Japanese whiskies are coming over here now, but I haven't tried one yet.

RE: Are you interested in spirits?
I'll have to look into the Woodford. Sounds like it might be OK. Guess I'll look for one of those little bottles. That may not be the way to go, though. The one time I tried Courvoisier XO in one of those little bottles it was nasty.
