Pro tip for peated whiskies -- aged is usually not better, as the smoky / tarry flavor mellows and disappears with time. I've had Laphroaig 12s, 18s, and 24s, and none of them were nearly as good as the 10, but were much more expensive. However, if you can find cask strength, don't hesitate to buy it, despite the higher price. I don't know why, but the cask-strength (50%+ abv) flavors and aromas are usually much, much more intense than the 40% abv versions.

Non-peated? Nikka Whisky From the Barrel is an amazing dram, I can't recommend it enough, even though it's not single malt.

I am getting my hair cut and there is a liquor store close by, will take your advice and pick up a bottle of Laphroaig .

Got a bottle of .36 Texas Bourbon from a relative and it is amazing. The bottle was gone way too fast. If you can get your hands on some Ranger Creek products, they're worth a try.

Laphroaig is fantastic. Cask Strength will punch your taste buds square in their testes - but in a good way.

The 10 year Laphroaig was my intro to peaty whiskies. It was amazing.

Currently have a Laphroaig quarter cask. I now keep at least three scotches: An Islay, a more mild, non smokey scotch and then something very expensive and good for nice occasions. Currently I have four because I wanted to try Monkey Shoulder.

Bought and consumed and it was amazing. That was also my initial foray into the peaty whiskies.

I think I just became a lot poorer, definitely going to broaden my pallet going forward.

Start it and see.

This lady I used to work with said 100% agave tequila can be consumed frequently in high quantities and will never give you fatty liver.

To combine this thread with tequilla - Corazon makes a tequilla finished in Buffalo Trace barrels. It is fantastic!

I had a visit with a friend this weekend that is a whiskey guy, this was what we tasted. Some really good Bourbons and Rye. Its kind of fun what distinct differences you get from a good tasting - some strong caramels, other strong vanillas, and some just smooth like butter.

No it is not. But she is kind of freaky. She's also terribly underpaid and needs to leave her job.

As long as we're talking non-whiskey spirits, how about the #1 most-consumed spirit in the U.S.A., and the scams and charlatans who made it cool ....

Vodka is stranger than I ever thought:

  • FDA classifies vodka in a beverage group with just one other: grain alcohol.
  • No rules to speak of - nothing even close to those governing scotch, bourbon or tequila
  • Made from any starchy source - potatoes, grains, sugar beets, grapes - most from wheat or barley.
  • Vodka is distilled to 80-90% alcohol - then at distribution, labels dilute with water, and sometimes add flavors.
  • If you see a vodka that claims "Aged X years," it's a scam - vodka is never aged.

Because of it's simple nature, until twenty years ago vodka had no high end brands - "Absolut" maybe, but it's price was just $18 - $20. Then, finally, along came an "entrepreneur" who solved the problem: He knew Americans REALLY wanted to pay more, he just needed a marketing plan. Thus was born Grey Goose in 1997.

Grey Goose has a couple tangible differences - made with slightly more expensive wheat, and filtered a couple more times. Grey Goose also has a couple image differences: It's made in France, and is distilled with mineral spring water. Gotta hand it to that guy, 7 years later he sold Grey Goose to Bacardi USA for $2.2 billion.


. .
. .PINNACLE -$13 . . . . . ., . . . . GREY GOOSE - $37


Mrs. BroncoBuff is a vodka girl, and she swears there is very little difference between Pinnacle and Grey Goose.

And whadd'ya know ... apparently Grey Goose and Costco's Kirkland brand vodka are pretty much the same thing too.

I enjoy whiskey now and again, but my regular staple has gone from beer to wine. Pinot Noir, to be specific. I still love a good IPA, but the carbs aren't worth it anymore. I don't want to bloat up in my 40's and be trapped in a body I can't do anything about in my 50's.

Whiskey seems like a half decent answer to that, but I've got to believe Pinot Noir is better on the liver than grain alchohol.
