Not interested in any variety that doesn't smell of kippers.
Would rather have a cup of coffee than any of them.

Good Islays, really.
Not speyside stuff, however.

I'll have to stick up for my 'Oirish' roots and go for Black Bush, Jamesons or Green Spot to be truly authentic

Not a big fan of whiskey - prefer Jack Daniels or Rebel Yell (I think it was called)

Laphroaig - taste inherited from my Scottish dad! But will drink anything once I've had a few, except for Southern Comfort after nasty experience when I was 18.

Favourite used to be Talisker. Having visited the distillery makes a difference as I can picture it every time I take a sip. However, I have a 16 year Lagavulin and that is absolute tops, although bottle is sadly running a bit low.

Once bought the father in law a 50-year Ardberg, which was good with a dash of water, but a bit too intense to be an every day favourite.

Occassionaly, if I fancy something with ice I will go Jack Daniels. Especially if I'm drinking it in the bath.

coffee has to be Lavazza.

Gawd! almost forgot Johnnie walker Red! Most people think it's cheap and nasty, but I love it cos it's quite sweet.

Lavazza espresso should be deemed a performance enhancing drug... But it tastes goooooood!

euch - we went to the Talisker distillery and they give you a complimentary dram, however not being a whisky drinker I thought I'd 'water mine down' - all it did was make a little amount of euch stuff into a glass full of euch stuff - couldn't drink it in the end ( I know - what a lightweight) nevermind.

Although I am a fan of a good, has to be old,malt such as Glen Morangie (spelling???) I’d have to say my favourite was a sickly sweet liquored whisky called Glavar

Have to recommend Highland Park as well as Caol Isla (it has a couple of different spellings) and an Irish called Middleton. Looking forward to my 1st drink in a while after the New Forest marathon on Sunday - I just hope that the town of New Milton has some good pubs.

Glava is made with cherries is it not? Its a scotch liquer isn't it!?

Glayva is made from 100% blended Scotch whiskies. Have you tried Drambuie, WW. Or better still a rusty nail (Drambuie + Scotch), yum, v v good.
You must all be big peat bog fans! How about Glenfarclas or The Macallan, or if you're feeling really flush try Royal Slaute

I am a major fan of the rusty nail and try to drink as many as possible when oh holiday in foreign parts (where they have big measures) but the problem is I usually end up falling of my bar stool – much to the wife’s amusement.

And yes I prefer the peat bog whiskies :o)

Bring on next months holiday

Flaming Drambuie'.... eases the pain!

Somewhere hot and sunny?
19/09/2002 at 14:38
Jon, you are barking! What pain and why would you want to waste all that alcohol by setting fire to it? I never did understand all that Sambuca pyrotechnics (sp?) stuff.
19/09/2002 at 14:39
Well... You get the full pleasure of the intoxicating fumes! A mate of mine did 11 doubles in the pub on his birthday, couldn't make it clubbing afterwards for some reason
