    No Haggis for YOU when I come to NY this season.

    I like haggis, it's pretty good. I've actually never had drambuie before. I may need to get a bottle this weekend.

    So I finaly had an opportunity to crack open the Isle of Jura 10 Year Old.

    It's excellent. Far better than I expected. Smooth, a hint of smoke, a nice, but sutble, touch of peat, a nice fruity nose.

    And a very nice quality buzz after two doubles.

    Tonights Menu:

    A continuation of the fine Jura 10, followed by repeated helpings of a 25 year old bottle of 12 year old Glenfiddich.

    Figured it was about time.

    I didn't think scotch "aged" after bottling. i.e. no real difference between a recently bottled 12 year old and a 10 year bottled 12 year old.

    It doesn't.

    Was more a comment that the bottle has sat for ages on my shelf.

    12 Year Old Glenfiddich pretty much tasted like.....12 Year Old Glenfiddich.

    Last night, after the golf event here in Charlotte I went out for a few. As friends ordered beer, I stopped and ordered Glennfiddich on the rocks. 12 year old... Much better than I remember. It was excellent.

    What does it mean that it's triple distilled? What region is it from?

    Now that the seasons are changing this is the time of year that I shelve my scotches and start drinking more bourbon. To me, bourbon was always more of a summer whiskey, and my favorite Islay malts are more suited for cold weather. I made a mint julep on Saturday in honor of the derby and it was fantastic. Some hot days there's nothing better than just a Makers Mark on the rocks in a deep glass. Does anyone else switch it up when the weather changes?

    I break out the Gin & Tonic in the summer vs Bourbon and Irish Whiskey. G&T is the only mixed drink I have. Everything else is either straight up or on the rocks. Cold beer is also a summer favorite. A pedestrian Pilsner will do as long as it is crackling cold.

    Gin is my go to pre-dinner cocktail, always. Sometimes G&T but mostly an extra, extra dry martini - really just cold gin in a glass. That's also known as a "Churchill" martini, because that's how he drank them. As long as he faced the direction that France was while drinking, that was enough with which to mix his drink.

    Any favorite gins? Hendricks is my favorite. Warfish would like it, it's a Scottish gin.

    Dear MODS.... the above is a blatant attempt to hijack our scotch thread.

    Gin is a British drink IMO, and I stick (on the very rare occasions I touch gin nowadays) with an old standard, Tanqueray. Drink it a lot as a (pre-Scotch-drinking) youth, after I gave up Vodka as the evil it is.

    Interestingly, Tanqueray is actually made in Scotland as well these days.

    Interestingly..I look at the white liquors (Gin/Vodka) as you do. Drinks from my youth. However, I went to a function a few years ago and had red bull and vodka. Wasn't terrible but yes, tanqueray is the bomb.

    I've had the 10 yo, it was ok. The 12 looks infinitely more appealing, tbh.

    BR, I bring in gins during the summer as well, preferring Bombay Sapphire. That said, I will still continue to imbibe my Highland and Speyside scotches. I can understand laying off the Islays, but why not continue with the others, especially if you are drinking bourbons as well?

    Thanks brother, appreciate the info. As one of very few Lowland distilleries, it caught my attention. Sadly, the distillery near to where I was born is closed and probably not coming back (yes, I am a Lowlander)

    I'm thinking of acquiring a nice upper-shelf bottle of bourbon (Woodford Reserve maybe? I don't know my Bourbons much, just know the cheap stuff, Jack and the like, are even more evil that Vodka!) for summer-sip'in duty.
