I was fortunate enough to have a snort of this stuff over the holidays. Delicious. Wish I could find some, but then again at $350 per I don't think I could do it.

For $350 per bottle, it had better give me a blowie while I drink it.

Married life - frequency of PVW and blowies are about the same.

Wouldn't a Japanese 'scotch' just be whiskey?

Really want to try/like scotch, but I don't think my 22 year old palate can't handle it yet


Start now. I started when I was about 22. I'm 25 now and it's my drink of choice. Fight through the peatiness and learn to enjoy.

I have two nice bottles, but can't drink the stuff on the rocks. Is there any other way to drink it?


I second whiskey rocks. But also, what I do sometimes that works well is I have a Deer Park bottle on my bar, I fill up just a capful with room temperature water (not tap water) and pour it in to about a 2 oz pour. Does well to cut the bite, but with the right scotch you won't need to (or want to).

This is my day to day:

But I recently had this at a Whiskey Bar in D.C. called Jack Rose (Praise Allah, a place with over 200 kinds of whiskey) and it totally blew my mind. I'm currently on the hunt for a bottle:

A good single malt>any blended IMO. Try the Macallan fine oak. Either the 15 17 18 or 21 is fine. some feel the 21 was too strong. My personal fav is the 15
