We are boys because we don't like the taste of something. Got it.
Single malt scotch is the way to go, it's like fine nuggs as opposed to Mexican dirt weed, which would be your Canadian whiskey, bourbon, and American whiskey, and even blended scotch for that matter.
Once we were all boys who didn't like the taste of scotch, junior.
Like someone said, it is an acquired taste. Don't try to acquire it on cheap scotch, it tastes like cheap bourbon. Don't try to acquire it on the single malts either. You won't appreciate them. No, you acquire a taste of scotch on the premium blends like Chivas, Cutty, Black & White, and Johnny Walker. A splash of water brings out the flavor.
Actually it's gin that I hate. Never tried scotch.
I'm with you there. Gin is the one alcohol I cannot drink at all. Scotch is my drink of choice. If it wouldn't get me drunk and had fewer calories, I would drink it all day long. I just love the taste of it.
Gin is another nasty liquor, there's nothing on the planet that can hide that dirty taste. But since I didn't know Johnny Walker was scotch, yeh i'm dumb... I have had a taste of the blue label and it was pretty smooth and tastey, but nothing i'd intentionally write home about. I prefer nuggs over drinking, no hangover and makes ya feel much better.
Jesus Christ, the boys don't like gin either. I don't swill the stuff, but there is no better before-dinner cocktail than a gin and tonic. It cleanses the palate. And you won't get malaria.
Red it is the quinine that prevents malaria.....the gin stops the head from ringing. Give me a MacCallan 24 neat and a fine cigar and that is living.
A crown or margarita on the rocks is much better. Or a bloody mary, or a long island iced tea... to each his own. My ex used to slam down gin and tonics like they were bottled water, couldn't stand the smell of them. Although blue sapphire is more tolerable than tangeray but not by much.
Bombay Blue Sapphire, swirl a little vermouth around in a glass then sling it out, crushed ice and two or three fingers of the good Dr. Bombay and it just doesn't get much better.
