    Default Such a thing as "ENOUGH SCOTCH"???

    Since we're "off duty" here, my wife seems to think I have enough Single malt Scotches in the house. I don't think there are enough.

    My question is this for the Scotch drinkers:

    What's the best single malt scotch you've ever tasted?

    Please add, what scotch do you drink (daily)? You know, the less expensive but still tasty stuff.

    Thumbs up

    A good single malt is Glen Livet 12 yr, and I can afford it once in a while too!
    The one I drink the most would be Johnny Walker Black, but if you have a spare 175 bucks or so, try JW Blue.
    Also, try this, your favorite scotch with 1 ice cube and some frozen mint girl scout cookies...mmmmmm good!

    Artie...

    Tell Mrs. E ngine Lt that you can't be too rich, too thin, have too many leather helmets or have too much Scotch!

    I'll have a Scotch once in a while, I really don't know much about them... but I do have my own personal quest, and that is to sample the finest beers, ales, porters and stouts in the world! I love microbreweries and brewpubs...there's nothing better than good food and a fine brew. As John Molson stated many years ago..."an honest brew makes it's own friends."

    I am with Gonzo, Beer, beer and more beer. Stouts are awesome. Artie, there is definitely no such thing as too much scotch. The ffod network had a really good show on about a month ago that was all about scotch. It explained the difference between single malt and blended.

    I am a fan of Old Bushmills (not scotch, but close)

    I am rather partial to Famous Grouse scotch. But prefer the Irish whiskey, Jameson.

    My father always said that Scotch was invented by the devil to keep the Irish poor!

    I'm with shammrock54, give me some Jameson's (preferably Jameson 1780) or give me a ride to the next pub

    I recomend if you are ever in IRELAND to check out a small family brand called MCnaulty. Centuries of perfection cant be wrong. Not available in the US or canada.

    Don't drink too much Scotch myself, so I can't comment on that. When you say Irish Whisky...all I can think of is "Grace". Smoothest drink that has ever passed my lips!

    But for day to day, gotta go with Gonzo on this. Stouts, amber ale, dopple bocks, are my favs.

    Motown...it isn't fair to tempt us with what we cannot have...wait a minute, come to think of it, that was temptation is...sorry!

    While on the subject of Guinness, the other day the wife and I went to Sully's First Edition Pub. I ordered a pint of the stout also known as the "nectar of the Gods"..when it came to the table, there was no cascade!!!...just a regular head that would be found on any pint of draught.

    I mentioned to the waitress (a family friend) that if they are going to serve Guinness, the least they could do is learn how to pour it properly!

    Talking

    Read this one and just couldn't resist. For Scotch, well that's a tough one. Greatest preferences are Lagvulin and Dahlwinnie.

    But on the other hand I also have to agree with Capt Gonzo too - there cannot never be too much Guiness either. Seems to me the two of them go hand in hand.

    On the subject of not pouring it properly, well the barman should be shot with a 2-1/2" pumping foam, cuz apparently he needs to be edjamecated on how to make the "perfect Guiness"!!

    I know that this may not qualify, but Heathers Cream Liquar is really good. It's an after dinner liquar. It is one of the smoothest Scotch drinks I have ever had. A little on the expensive side, but not to bad.

    Default Laphroaig and Guiness

    http://www.scotchwhisky.com/english/...s/laphroab.htm

    This sets me all misty eyed.

    Back from a call with a pint of Guiness and a shot of neat laphroaig.

    Laphroaig, now we're talking 1 malt! To date I have found nothing finer than Dahlmer's Stillman's Dram, a 30 year old 1 malt which rates up there with sex, money and fire.

    Tell ya what Loo,
    Next time we get together, you pick the place, and the drinks, I'M buying.

    Personally I am more of a beer man myself. And prolly much to the shagrin of Gonzo and Motown, I am more of a light beer drinker, one Guiness and I am so full I cant drink any more. Now what fun is that? Gimme 5-6 Labatt Blue and I am a happy man!

    OK Lewiston2capt, I gotta ask: I see that you sign in from Niagra Falls, NY, now I gotta ask you, your reference to Labbatt Blue: is that the home grown Canadian version, or is it the watered down export stuff that we send out to all the less fortunates around the world? Your answer will make a differnence between quantity and quality....

    I ask this as a true blue, born and raised Canadian, albeit a West Coast boy from which everything flows downhill from here. In any case, have a shot on me the next time your out.

    Being that I am only 10 minutes from the border I have partaken of both the home grown Canadian version and the watered down three week old stuff that we get on this side of the border. I admit I prefer the canadian version. Although even the watered down stuff is pretty good.

    Shawn and Malahat

    After many trips across the border to the north, I can't help but remember the fine Labatt 40. Anyone up for a Smuggler's run? I only require 10-20 cases, that should do for the summer.

    Ah, to be on St. Cathrines Blvd. again.
