I think it's time for you to get a job... and stop relying a a stimulus check to feed yur dog......

EDIT: she's not a union dog is she? if she is I'm sure yur check is on it's way....... :down:

All scotch is whisky.  All whisky is not scotch.  To be caled SCOTCH it has to be only from Scotland.  Not Ireland, Wales, England etc.  Pretty sure I have this right.

The name game...and the beat goes on...

Laphroaig...as I recall a whiskey made in Scotland is called "whisky"...not whiskey. Actually...I know that for an absolute fact.  Scotch seems to be a now general term for certain distilled spirits "over there"...even as in odd places like India, where Aram is being distilled and aged for a much shorter period due to the heat (which has a profound effect for several reasons, as does the low humidity/dryness), and is being embraced by Scotch drinkers, paying serious prices. "Scotch" is now being produced in far off places...even Australia, according to "The Whisky Advocate", formerly "The Malt Advocate"...now owned by The Wine Spectator(Marvin Shankin...i.e. "Shakedown"). There are several scotch offerings from the UK in general.

While I will try bottles of modestly priced true Scotch Whisky...I prefer bourbon more often. I guess that is why I am a Maker's Mark Ambassador, which anyone can apply for, and be. I was fortunate to join just before the NRA convention in Louiseville, KY in 2007...so drove to the distillery, and went through the funny/silly "right of passage"...which I thoroughly enjoyed!

Anyway...if you have a Trader Joe's (yes, I must be a shill for this retailer) near, and they are allowed to sell spirits...you should try the TJ's Single Malt Irish Whiskey...that is Whiskey with an "e", as opposed to whisky without an "e"...which might be a Welsh influence...cause you know they have a crazy language due to their spelling proclivities...but, that is another story altogether. Anyway...I am enjoying the aforementioned Irish single malt whiskey as I type (which COULD explain some...alot) in a (infommercial) www.bottegadelvinocrystal.com Johnson's Whisky Tot, which is the MOST amazing vessel for brown liquor...and all of these delicate comestibles are fully protected from the ravages of oxygen by my world famous (no...seriously...I mean it) Private Preserve Wine Preserver (look to the very left of the page...toward the bottom at this time).

So...I enjoy Maker's Mark, Maker's Mark 46, Wild Turkey 101, Bulleit 95 Rye, Eagle Rare, Speyburn, Dalmore 12, various offerings from Heaven Hill (Even Williams, Elijah Craig et al)...and the beat goes on.

What's next?

ps- It is raining pretty well here in the eastern hills of the Napa Valley (where the quail and the "antelope" play)...and that Irish Single Malt Whiskey is demanding a refill...go figure!

No offense intended shotster;  but technically, you're wrong.  

Can a company in India, to use your example, bottle whisky from an in Indian distillery, slap a label on it and call it scotch?  Sure.  Furthermore,  you are free to drink all the Indian (so called) scotch your heart desires.

However,  just because the Indian company calls it scotch,  does not make it scotch.

hummmmmm... let me see if I can find the post where you talk about little  Frankies dog bringing back the bird with out any tail feathers... or  you having to fight to get it from the pup.....

ohhhh you meant Frank had the bad breath.... sorry :down:

I have explained this, Wade shot the feathers off and there is never a problem getting the bird from her.

Yea, I'm quite sure that I shot all the tail feathers off a grouse on a 25 yard crosser with a .004 choke.... ???   Does the word "Denial" mean anything to you...  :D

All I was able to do was walk and bring my retrieving dog along for all the hard work :D

Lol....and, we both know you killed grouse with that shiny new AYA while we were hunting... :<img src=:'>   I am having withdrawals right now.  That was fun hunting together in November and December !!

Edit:  Slipper slayer was never alone with a bird to cause damage, and doesn't have a criminal record like a certain GSP.... :<img src=:'>

I don't know how that would be possible, I never even fired a shot.  :D

I agree, we will have to get together and shoot some preserve birds this winter. Eagerly anticipating spring woodcock though

With Scotch whisky you're tasting the character of the place, the people, rocks and water that go into the making of the water of life. You taste the rough, rugged land and sea, the heather of the highlands, the barley grown on thin soil. You taste the place.

In the depths of Winter I like that heavy peat, runoff from a house fire flavor, of some of the Islay malts like: Laphroaig, Lagavulin, Caol Ila and Bowmore. Their island of Skye cousin Taliskers is also a great way to spend an evening by fire.

With the warmth of a Summer evening I like the lighter styles from the Highland glens: Glenrothes, Glenmorangie, Glenlivet,etc,.

For just a good all around whenever malt I love the Highland Park bottlings from Orkney. They have enough of the classic peat flavors to hold my interest along with a good balance of heather and honey.

As to blends I like the Famous Grouse's Black Grouse. It must be the peat.

So many whiskies to explore and only a lifetime to enjoy them.

here's to perfect evenings... Slàinte

All real scotch is made in Scotland out of malted barley.  Then there are blended scotch that has some real scotch and other whiskey addedthat is what I have always understood it to be.

That is what I understand.

To be Scotch it has to be barley malt, distilled in Scotland and aged three years. Single malts are whisky from just one distillery, Vatted malts (Walker Green label) are when single malt whiskies from more than one distillry are blended. Blended Scotches whiskies may also contain other grain whiskies in the blend.
