Yea that's what I meant, the most I have ever spent on a bottle of booze is about $30AUD and while some of it was half decent, a good proportion of it has been garbage. The scotch I have tried would be classed as ok at best.

More expensive doesn't equate to better quality.

name a "cheap liquor" that is any good.

:)
If 'cheap' definition is under $20, many wines, vodka, Kahlua, Bailey's, most rum's. You can get very good single malt scotch for as little as $30 like Glen Moray, Glenfiddich, and Old Pulteney 12yo(which is excellent.)

I basketed a bottle of 'Canadian Reserve' well deserving of its economical stature (not to be confused with 'Canadian Club') precisely because of its brazen presence in the whiskey genre.

I then proceeded to pollute a few cups of it with instant coffee, chocolate syrup, unsweetened condensed milk, vanilla and sugar, put it into a decanter and after pouring a pair of cordial glasses, popped her off into the fridge.

I equate it to things similar to baileys and other chocolate/coffee cream liqueurs .

I am presently sipping this liqueur, happy as can be :)

cheers

Precisely. No need to get your knickers in a twist, precarious. Although I'm not sure when "cheap" arbitrarily started meaning $20 dollars or less, I tried the dictionary like you said, but it didn't seem to affirm your assertion.

So the local liquor store updated their stock with a bunch or rare imports due to the high demand from the local Microsoft clientele and I snagged a bottle of Old Pulteney 12 that's been on my to-try list for a while.

Macallan typically hold free tastings throughout the US each year.  You get to taste test between the 10 to 18 years.
www DOT raisethemacallan DOT com to register for an event, if it's not full yet.

A tip, sit/stand nearby where the servers are coming out and you can typically get more freebie drinks in.

Once you get on their mailing list, they spam you for future events.

Hey, nice pic.

Oban is my choice for single malt Scotch whisky.  It's not for everybody, I don't think, because of the overtone of heatheriness, and the hint of peatiness.  But it's a good one.

Glenfiddich for me because I'm a poor, poor person with all of my expensive hobbies. Glenfiddich seems to taste just right.

However, I did recently buy a Talisker Distiller's Edition (1999) for a friend's 21st...

Glenfiddich 12 is great to have a couple of bottles of at home. 15 and 18 if you have a nice drinks chest like me. :p

Could you tell me a little more about that Yamazaki please jooks? I've heard a lot of good things about it.

I cracked that bottle of Dalwhinnie 15yo last night and I have to say, this just rocketed to one of the best malts I've ever tasted. The deep notes of honey and fruit are just wonderful. The taste is just so warm and complex, yet entirely approachable and likely the smoothest malt I have ever had. I usually enjoy the kick of peaty drams but this one was too special.

Yeah, it's weird but I like Dalwhinnie too, even though no-one else in Scotland drinks it. I only tried it because it's near where I was born/used to live; it's mainly just used for blends and export abroad.

Have you tried the Triple Wood yet? It is surprisingly smooth and complex. I think I prefer the quarter cask, but like you said, "Anything Laphroaig is my favorite".  ;D

Only like $180, compared to the $200+ I'd pay at home.

Worth it? Nope. I've enjoyed under $100 bottles more.

But I'm glad to have finally grabbed it.

Nothing wrong with Grouse though. It's just that Johnny Walker is a heavily marketed, nonsense whisky for foreigners that don't know any better.

Even Grouse is bloomin' heavy in the marketing department nowadays. Some JW blends just cost a hell of a lot more. :/

Yeah, but I mean Grouse is like the Coca Cola of Scottish whisky (in the Andy Warhol sense), Grant/Teachers/Bells is Pepsi, and Johnny Walker is supermarket cola in fancy packaging sold almost entirely to North Americans and Asians for ten times the price because they've fallen for their marketing scam.

Maybe it's from growing up in the Scotch-less capital of the world but I'm fallen for a good bottle of Jim Beam Black. It's my go to bottle that makes me go to bed.

Best Whisky I've ever had was Dalmore King Alexander III. Got it from an ex-boss at Sundance and drank it down in a single night, in a hot tub, in the mountains, in the snow, with women.....good scotch/whisky/bourbon brings back good memories!

Fair enough. Personally I'm not a fan and I think the price is unjustified. But it's worth trying to see what all the fuss is about I suppose.

Nice scotch lineup. We did a tasting a few days ago with a nice range of scotch.

Won't bore you with the details but the big winner was Tamdhu 10 year. Think it's about $50 a bottle, which is a really solid deal IMO.

I have a problem with collecting.   Plenty of open bottles though.   Right now we're enjoying Balvenie Madeira 17 and 21 Portwood,  Glenlivet 21,  Pappy 10, 12, an 15,  Four Roses  (I like all of them) Small Batch Select.   Lagavulin 16, a few Kilchoman etc.....

I try not to have more than 15 bottles open at any time LOL.

of all the RVW's, the 15yr is the best, IMO.
I have some Black Maple Hill bourbon on hand and I find it's an excellent rounded bourbon

For Scotch, I'm not a peat fan so I prefer highland Scotch like Clynelish (coastal highland).  Speyside if nothing else available.. but I tend to ward off islay.
