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

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.

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.

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.

@ JTLaz

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.

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!

My Ride: my favorite two feet
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.
