    LOL I have 5 of the 8 including one on an unopened bottle. I may just buy the 3 bottles that I need if this guy has the right tops. Cypress Craft Beer and Liquor on Valley View. Guy has a ton of stuff at great prices. Wish it wasn’t so damn far for me. Would be there all the time getting the hard to find stuff.

    No, just passing by - I spent over 26 years in Whisky Production, so no need to see how it's done;)

    No frick’n way on the top one, no matter how good it tastes. I’m inspired to go have a shot of my Wild Turkey 101. :)

    Why is the Old Forester 1910 labeled Whisky and not Whiskey?? interested to know if there is a reason for this. Thanks:)

    How do you like it? I think that’s one on the must try in your life.

    Not as much as I hoped. The 60% ABV really overpowers the taste and that's exceptionally strong to me.

    I can never choose... Usually my most recent one will be what I say, which is the Laphroaig 18. Excellent dram.

    Sooooo, I had to google:

    Here’s a quick way to remember how some of the world’s biggest producers spell their products:

    • Countries that have E’s in their names (UnitEd StatEs and IrEland) tend to spell it whiskEy (plural whiskeys)
    • Countries without E’s in their names (Canada, Scotland, and Japan) spell it whisky (plural whiskies)

    Now Old Forester is an American whiskey so I don't know why the E is omitted. o_O

    Yes - I understand the geographical spellings ..... I was just curious about the label with the 'wrong' spelling for American whiskey. Printers must be drinking scotch:D:D.

    Drinking Old Fashions with Bullet 10 year. (I have a deep freeze stocked with them.) That’s pretty much my go-to bourbon and non-gin or vodka cocktail.

    I seem to go through phases of wanting Old Fashions then Scotch (typically Glenmorangie 18)...then back to Old Fashions. I can see myself eventually only drinking Scotch 3-4 times a year and sticking mainly to Old Fashions.

    I’ll never stop drinking gin & tonics, and Belvedere...especially in the warm months.

    Speaking of which....I’m off to the bar.

    4 ounces of bourbon, 1 ounce of simple sugar and a few drops of bitters with a twist of orange peel is too much work? 45 seconds.

    Got my chance to try Pappy for the first time in London last week. 20 Yr. old, had a double- neat.

    It was outstanding, with a feeling going down like a brandy.
    First time, hopefully not the last.

    40 UK for the 15 year, 55 for the 20 year. Cheaper than I had ever found traveling here in the US so I did not hesitate. Restaurant was Sketch.

    There are a few good ones within < £50

    1) Port Charlotte – Anything they do is godly
    2) Ledaig 10 – Solid whisky for the price point
    3) Wolfburn Northland - A new distillery but traditional in methods.

    are you talking pounds or euro? either way, that's relatively cheap. I pay US $180 for 20 and $230 for 23.
