  • Really good, affordable whiskey?

    Some dude at work told me to get a bottle of real Scotch for $300/bottle. I forgot the brand name. No way, I'd rather buy a PS3.

    You know how they had an international vodka contest and Grey Goose from France won top prizes? Do we have a similar award system for whiskeys?

        I saw a bottle of Johnny Walker, 'Green' I think, with a price tag of over $300.

        I gave it a miss.

        PS,


        A bottle of Penfolds 'Grange Hermitage' Shiraz will set you back well over $400 a bottle on the day of release, and a 10 year old one will cost you maybe twice that.

          I'm rather fond of Glen Parker as a budget single malt scotch.

          However this critic hated it: http://whiskylounge.hember.name/2008...live-king.html

          Glenfidich 12 year old is probably the most widely available reasonably priced scotch.

            In this area Mark, any good bottle of single malt scotch is gonna be at least $30/bottle unless you find it on sale of course. My personal favorite right now is Oban

            but at around $50-$70 per bottle depending where you get it and if on sale it can be a bit more than you would be willing to spend. The main reason it is my everday now is that I still have 6 bottles of it left from my wedding. Was a special order for a single malt scotch toast instead of champaign.

            I also really like Edradour's products. Their baseline single malt is a nice 10 yr old.

            It generally runs about $55-60 per bottle.
            If you are a little braver they have an 11 yr old Straight From the Cask that is finished in a Bordeaux cask and is actually cheaper at about $40/bottle.

              Even the Johnny Walker Blue Label King George V Special Edition at $500/bottle is still a blended whiskey which in my book rates it as not worth drinking. Mind you that is strictly an opinion of a single malt snob though!!

                My dad drinks VO. I think it's a Canadian whiskey. not sure about the price, but if my dad drinks it can't be too expensive...

                  Johnny Walker Green retails for about $50 US.

                    That's about the same as a Glenfidich 12 reserve costs here.

                    Never checked it, I'm not a high priced-blended type, but I guess that over here the green label will go at around 200$ easily...

                        12 Reserve sells for about $29. 12 International sells for about $79. But that is all that cheap stuff.

                        Here is a real Glenfiddich...$2954.99:

                          I don't know what 12 international is, never heard of it, I only know reserve and Coran.

                          The reserve sells at about 40-50$ at the duty free here, at a liqueur store it goes around 150-200$.....

                            When it comes to liquor, I am a whisky man, specifically bourbon. Bourbon...straight outta Kentucky. Not real fond of the "Tennessee" variety and it's been so long since I've had any I plain forgot why I didn't like it, but when I developed my palette enough to be able to "shoot" liqour and hold it down, it was bourbon for me.

                            I'm not real fond of the canadian style blends, or other blends, and light whiskies that incorporate the neutral spirits. I can drink 'em but they're not my preference.

                            I like the smooth,medium body of a nice mellow slightly aged bourbon.

                            Bourbon.... Ahhhhh.

                            Bartender, sir...another round for me & my friends. Cheers.

                              I was a fan of bourbon, only. Then a good ole GA boy brought a bottle of Dickel on a canoe tour. He brought it out on the second day and ask if I wanted a sip. WAR, I took a sip, then a big swallow then he wanted it back. We agreed to a an finished it off with the others on the tour that evening over a nice little fire.

                              Give it a try. Small bottles aren't that expensive.

                              I'm with you on the blends. NO thank you!
