Holy shit Krig, fuckin' nice!
I hated going without Buffalo Trace for so long that I bought a 2nd bottle 15 minutes ago. SMART!
My whisky collection
Yeah man awesome collection!
definitely inspired to pick up buffalo's trace now.
so I was reading this article on how to make a poor man's Pappy. Apparently you blend a 3:2 mixture of W.L. Weller and Old Weller Antique and let it sit for a couple of weeks. For only about $40 or $50 it may be worth trying
So how does everybody enjoy their scotch? On ice? Diluted with a little water? Neat? And why?
tiny amount of water
Neat, occasionally adding a drop or two of water ... usually to open up the higher proof stuff.
Neat for single malts, usually only adding water to higher proofs. I'll drink cheaper blended ones (JW Red Label, Dewar's) on ice or in a rob roy.
Neat always. As fine whiskey goes, I enjoy single malts and bourbon. For single malts, I love the smokey Islays and the like. I find diluting them, even with a couple drops of water, mutes the smokiness for me and I can't have that.
I drink mine neat, but I enjoy using stones. I like it to be a bit cool.
I can't cope with alcohol. I'm a borderline smart guy without it but a full blown retard with it.
On Saturday we went to the Wigle Distillery www.wiglewhiskey.com in Pittsburgh. Small place, but their White Wheat and Aged Wheat we're really good. They are going to be releasing a "bourbon" too. Kinda excited for that.
They are known for their Rye, but I've never been a fan of Rye Whisky, it was good for what it was.
I Recommend it, if you're in the Pittsburgh area.
$22 for a bottle of Buffalo Trace. Yay!
Neat. I like almost anything brown, just depends on my mood.
so a new whiskey bar has opened up just a few miles from my place. 100 Whisk(e)ys available. I went in today and had the following
Elijah Craig 12...one of my favorites. It's a great go-to. Always drinks wonderfully
Elmer T Lee's (I forget which specific vintage). Fantastic. Drank even smoother than the EC12. I was pleasantly surprised
and then the big gun came out
Old Rip van Winkle 10...delicious. A friend had it on ice, and I actually preferred it that way. That being said, I wasn't totally blown away by it, but it was still fantastic. I would never pay $200 or however much that one is (I know the 20 year PVW is like $2K)
I cannot fucking wait to go to the Buffalo Trace distillery in August.
Really want to try that Elmer T. And of course some Pappy
Wish we had a whisky bar here.
Bought a bottle of Woodford Reserve. Good stuff. Still like Buffalo Trace more.
I've discovered that I really like Clan Macgregor. It's bottom-shelf blended scotch, but I prefer it to the bottle of Glenlivet 10 I got somewhere. Probably weird, but it's pretty convenient to enjoy something that's like $12 a bottle.
