The Scotch Thread: Stay out children....
 
Its about that time....

Cigars and scotch, 45 degrees and crystal clear out, fire cracklin away. Get that scotch, tackle that fretboard, and spark up those robustos :woot:

What are you guys drinking?

For me, the following:

Oban 14 year
Johnny Green

On less expensive nights

Johnny Black on the rocks, splash of Perrier
Laphroaig 10 year... smokey as a bastard, great for the money
Glenmorangie 12


If you had a sip of Johnny Blue once, congratulations. This thread need not apply to your e-balling and stupidity for bragging about a bottle that any actual scotch drinker can agree is about $100 overpriced.

Aaaaaah I'm going to fall in love with this thread.

JJR4884 10-24-2011 04:24 PM

Well you can start by contributing :spit:

JTLaz 10-24-2011 04:30 PM

haha dick. I didn't want to spell the names wrong so I was going to hold off until I got home (silly, I know lol)

My cheapo scotch is: Glenlivet

But, I also have a bottle of Macallan Cask Strength and Johnny Walker Blue (my dad owns a liquor store and owed me some money. I took this bottle as interest lol) that I pour a glass from every once in a while.

I need to broaden my horizons and pinpoint which region I like the most (Highlands, Midlands, Lowlands, Islay).

JJ, do you use whisky stones or an ice cube? I stick to one ice cube to dilute the scotch a little and cool it down a bit.

SPDSKTR 10-24-2011 04:31 PM

Glenfiddich and Chivas Regal.

For now.

Adam@Euro-Spec 10-24-2011 04:34 PM

I'll share the bottle of johnny blue i have laying around if you bring the cigars :luv:


My gf's dad is a big fan of Glenfiddich, so we drink that a lot. It's pretty good I enjoy it and pretty reasonable.

JJR4884 10-24-2011 04:34 PM

@ JTLaz :P

I stick with an ice cube, however any scotch worthy (we'll set the threshold at $70 a bottle) will be neat for me. Johnny Green, Oban, Johnny Gold, Macallan 18, Johnny Blue, and Glenmorangie 18 I will have neat, 100% of the times.

Anything less i don't mind keeping cooler and don't stress about being watered down a bit. In fact, when I am not in the mood for another cocktail (vodka) I will fill a highball glass packed with ice, 1/2 johnny black and 1/2 perrier. take a few sips, put some more ice cubes in it, and drink away. there isn't even an 1/8 of an inch at the bottom of the glass of room, literally ice top to bottom

i drank it that way to get me into scotch, and it definitely helped.... goes down like water and it tastes good for a cocktail.

I do like Macallan a lot too. Glenlivet is another cheap scotch that I enjoy and is easy to drink.

would like to try...!

Does scotch taste better as you get older? I really want to be classy at the bar and order a scotch but would rather drink vodka or rum.
Please, stay safe.

I believe only if it is still in its cask. A lot of the time its the wood that infuses the flavor. I don't think it continues to age once it has been bottled. (Maybe i'm wrong, if so correct me plz)

I'm a big fan of Johnnie Walker but I really don't like anything higher than green. I also drink macallans.

I either drink neat or with a splash of warm water.

(Johnnie Red gets ice lol)

EDIT: I just realized you are asking about YOUR age not the scotch...lol....ummm I'll go with yes!

how serendipitous I have actually just started drinking more scotches. so far had chivas and johnnie black. I drink them mostly neat occasionally with ice to see the flavor change.

was wondering like wines when drinking scotch what are the usual flavors I should be tasting? also how best to store it? room temp, fridge put in fridge/ freezer hour before drinking etc.
