    If I'm going to cheap stuff I like Bourbon, or lately Jameson's Irish Whisky.

    If I want better stuff I go for Bowmore, 10, 12, or 15 years old.

    Great stuff.
    The 16 year old special editions Bowmore had out the other year were incredible. :yep:

    But Highland Park cannot be beat in my opinion. I once had the fortune to get a taste of a 25 year one at a whisky tasting event. It was heavenly. The standard 10 year is still pretty good though. :sogood:

    Quality Bourbon like Makers Mark or Bullit Bourbon?
    Makers Mark without question. It's my favourite whisky. A friend of mine who is something of a sommelier introduced me to it many a year a ago and I loved it ever since.

    Bowmore is nice, but I prefer Laphroaig. Still, Islay whiskys are :drool:

    Until 5 months ago I hadn't really had a proper single malt, sticking instead to cheap and cheerfull whiskeys, but I tried a free shot of 10 year old and 15 year old Bowmore and I couldn't believe what I was missing.

    I would have loved to try the 16 year old.

    I haven't tried any other's though. I used to work in an off licience and the ones people bought the most were Glenfiddich, Bowmore, and Macallan. There was another too but I don't remember the name.

    Soon I play to buy a bottle of Glenfiddich and start from there.

    Interesting, I haven't had it before. I really have been meaning too for a while though.

    What is your drinking preference?: You drink it straight? On ice or without?

    I find it slightly smoother than Bowmore, with a more woody taste. Tis my fave whisky.

    Smoother than Bowmore? Then it's already starting to appeal to me. Bowmore I find is a easy down the throat with a bit of a kick at the end.

    Even better with ice.

    I'll certainly give it a go soon enough! :yep:
