I noticed the "Favorite Gins" thread, but since I don't drink gin, I figured I would pose the same question for my poison of choice.

So, Bourbon, Scotch, Irish, Canadian, etc. What is your favorite whiskey?

I will start it off with two, a low priced and high priced.

For the economical minded, I like Four Roses Bourbon. Award winning, smooth bourbon for right around $20/bottle. Just can't be beat.

For the high end, however, I have to admit I am sipping on a Johnnie Walker Blue right now. Bought it in Grand Cayman two years ago, and just love it. Very smooth, not overly oaky or smokey, and perfect neat.

There is no comparison to Johnnie Walker Blue .... Jeff and I shared a bottle over a month or so. Sipping a dram or two every few days. It was divine.

Can't wait for the next bottle, but of course, you only turn 40 once!

I've never met a whisky-whiskey I DIDN'T LIKE. Lagavulin is my favourite after trying almost all of the 4 regions. It's nice to know what to expect from each now.
The bottom line is in any personal trial life throws at us this gift from God works better than anything the pharmacy can offer.

Lagavulin cask-strength. Pretty much ruined all other whiskey for me (well not quite Wink).

My favorite that I've tried so far is Glenfiddich.

I don't drink alcohol often enough to have justified the price tag on trying the more expensive stuff.

Cutty Sark, only for the reason it's in one of my favorite books, "The Wind-up Bird Chronicles" by Haruki Murakami.

I agree Lagavulin has it for me also.
Although any of the Islay creations would not be turned out into the night Biggrin
Shudder to think how much a bottle will cost in future here in the UK, now the tax is going to be increasedAngry

I do business with 3 men on a fairly regular basis. Mr. Daniels, Mr. Jameson, and Mr. Walker. They always seem to end up with most of my money so they are fairly good businessmen.
