I had a bottle of cask-strength Edradour from the Heathrow duty free that was pretty much off the hook...might have been "only" 12 years old, but peaty as balls and just downright dreamy.

Don't say that around a scotch drinker, they will say "it's an acquired taste" while they think to themselves, "he's got no taste at all".

but i also used to not like hoppy stuff, now i do.  i went to a tequila tasting, then bought like $300 worth of tequila over a month or two.  i've tried some whiskeys recently, tullamore dew, paddy, michael collins, knob creek, some kind of rendezvous rye and was like "i could get into this". this johnnie walker tasting didnt do anything for me. the blue was smooth and didnt burn, but i'm not a fan of the smokey/slim jim taste.

Tullamore dew is swamp water. Get a single malt. Islay whiskeys taste like a campfire, Highland Park is sweeter and smooth.

Seems to be a highly regarded one, probably fairly high alcohol content. I have no interest in Johnny Walker.

High West Rendezvous Rye Whiskey 750ml
SKU #1037707
 
Winner of the Double Gold San Francisco World Spirits Competition 2008! Rendezvous is created from two exotic straight rye whiskies: a 6-year-old 95% rye and a 16-year-old 80% rye. A higher proportion of unmalted rye gives Rendezvous a unique flavor profile with notes of spicy cinnamon, caramel, honey, mint, and vanilla. Rendezvous is not chill filtered, a cosmetic step almost all large companies use to remove the natural oils that cause a haze when whiskey gets cold. This also removes flavor, texture, and the lingering finish we really enjoy! 95 Points from the Malt Advocate!!!!!

Most blends tast awful. Walker is not bad. Pebble Beach is pretty good, Caol Isla is pretty good, Lagavulin will be too smoky for you.

PA - I don't give a crap if it is girly. it tastes good and that's all that matters.

I never did understand the obsession with drinking nasty ass bitter drinks just so people think you are "manly". and if you drink something that actually tastes good then you aren't "manly" enough.

That's why when I was in the Caribbean I drank every rum punch and fruity frosty drink I could, because that's where you do it.

I really like the way good Scotch tastes. I drink it neat. Even the Highland Park website suggests some cold water to open up the taste, but I like it better concentrated.

I have recently become a gin fiend.

I especially like a Gin Gimlet made with Tanqueray Gin. Two or three of those and I start playing centerfield like Nyjer Morgan.

I picked up a bottle of Haitian rum a few weeks ago...pretty good, actually.  I was expecting Ton Ton Macoute grade zombie piss, but it actually stacks up quite favourably to the best aromatic rums I've had from Jamaica and such places.  Unfortunately, whatever supply the distributors have on hand is all we'll be seeing for a while, seeing as the distillery is in Port au Prince and got flattened in the earthquake.

Gin is good, Tanquery and tonic or straight up with olives and a bit of vermouth - nice and simple, just one small reason why I miss my liver.
