What's the small bottle in front?

 

Finally tried it last night.  Willet is probably not a Bourbon aficionados favorite.  But I liked it quite a bit.  It has a light Bourbon burn with very minty and Christmas type spices.  A cold weather night by tbe fire type Bourbon for sure.  Very nice I thought.

Uhhmmm, welching I think you mean.     Pretty much everyone in Wales thinks you're a prick now.  lol 

Laphroig is liquid arson, it's overly peaty and lingers in your mouth like an std.

Ummm.....you would be committing a cardinal sin if you mixed this with anything but a splash of water and  maybe an ice cube.

Now, let me tell you about this!

That my friends is the best Rye I've ever had and it's not even close.  Before trying this my top 3 was

 

1. Bulleit

2. Pendelton 1910

3. High West Rendezvous

 

And Bulleit was a clear #1.  Not any more.  This stuff could almost be mistaken for Irish or Scotch.  This stuff has THE best Rye flavor there is.  I got it at a steal under $40, usually around $50 or so.  GET this bottle, thank me later.

Found this at hyvee in Kearney.  It’s not bad, but for $58 I was expecting better.

Haha! Aberlour is one of my favorites and got me into scotch, and I hate Laphroaig.

I've thought about blending it with a decent Irish whiskey....but, I don't want to ruin the Irish.

 

I'm too cheap to dump it.

 

I would pick up some bargain scotch with no peat to blend it with.  Eventually you'll find it drinkable.  I recommend Famous Grouse.  A handle is $30 at Wal Mart.

Or...since I've proven over the many years that I can be a sort of masochist when it comes to alcohol....I'll probably just suffer through finishing it off.  It will instill in my brain the fact that it's bad.

I'll try to find some peat heavy scotch cocktail ideas for you.  Laphroaig ruins taste buds, I won't let that happen to you.
