Due to this thread I have expanded my tastes. I had some Bush-mills but it is a bit harsh.

I do toast to @Red Flag 1 for the recommendation.:thumbsup:

Bushmills harsh?:-o:wall: Are you a friggin marshmallow? :hmm::thumbsdown: Bushmills is not harsh at all - one ice cube, wait 5 min for the clouding to appear and the buried flavors/aromas to develop, and it is as smooth as an angel's song.:thumbsup::rolleyes::D

Can we ban @Marine0311 for being a wimpy Marine and dissing on the Bushmills? Or we could change his name to Nancy0311....:wall::wall::wall:

What the fuck is wrong with you? Choke yourself. Even Jameson's black is swill compared to Bushmill's and Bushmill's black is called "Black Bush." The name alone makes it a winner.

Choke yourself. I should ban you. We can tolerate that Commie McDeath character, but this cannot stand.

On the Scotch side of things I've enjoyed Oban 14y the most. Still haven't gained a taste for any bourbon

I apologize for my infraction and will hone my bushmills drinking skills.

When I win the lottery I'm gonna buy me a $1500 bottle of Pappy Van Winkle Family Reserve, have it certified non-counterfeit, sit down with my Shadowspear shot glass, and start a-sippin. I'm told I'll see rainbows, unicorns, and feel like my liver just got massaged by 72 vestal virgins. 8-)

I found that Glenlivet 12 year is pretty smooth, so much so that you don't even need ice. I'm not a fan of harsh tasting alcohols, found myself drifting toward Scottish whiskeys.
Glenlivet/Davis, Nadurra

You need to try Willie's Distillery Big Sky bourbon... Willie is a former 3rd Bn Ranger and got better and became an 18D.... he grew up making fortified corn squeezin's in Appalachian Blue Ridge Mountains NC... small batch, lovingly made, proudly by a US Combat Veteran who knows his stuff.

(I miss being able to merge posts....)

I see he's out of Montana. If I can find it around here and can afford it, I'll definitely try it. :thumbsup:

I can use my uninhibited admin powers for the good of you commoners and rename the thread.

Had a shot for free not to long ago. It is good but not $1500 good. Bourbon is like buying wine. Doubling the price does not mean it is twice as good.
