Every gentleman needs his drink to settle down after a hard day of work. In my case I like a scottish whisky, preferably single malt and aged a minimum of 10 years to exhibit the right flavors.

What is your spirit of choice /class/?

The Original Poster is a very fine gentleman, and his preferences are startlingly similar to mine.

However,I am a scientist at heart and I enjoy putting additional substances into my drink. Call me a ruffian, but a healthy dose of valium can spruce a drink right up.

Thank you for this pleasant conversation my dear gentlemen.

although I have to concede to OP that i do love a good single malt scotch, particularly glenfiddich, my true love is vodka and a stiff drink with some Balkan 176 does my nerves good at the days end

Amice, after having tried it straight and sipping it I must agree on your choice.
The counterman did his best to convince me Patron was of the highest quality, but to me it tasted like sugarwater for the lowly masses. Don Julio will soon be resident in my abode.

On another note, Jose Cuervo Reserva De La Familia is also quite agreeable albeit a bit expensive in comparison.

A fine single malt well matured scotch whiskey, glenmorangie special reserve,28 years old, served in a short tumbler, with a single ice cube,(optional),any more kills the whiskey, to be savored, not swilled.

Interesting good sir. Are there any unfortunate side effects of doing so that you are aware of?

Sophisticated Gentleman 12/06/24(Sun)00:57 No. 1132

Though it might be rather malapropos, I feel it necessary to object to the very notion of a gentleman doing a "hard day of work". Rather an obnoxious notion if I must say so myself.

Personally I prefer a medium sweet white wine, a riesling or moscato perhaps, but had I to choose a spirit it will be bourbon or cognac.
A long time ago I had one bottle of old cognac in a green matte bottle. It was absolutely gorgeous in taste, I only wish I could still remember its name.

The "Uncouth Swine" is back on the premisis. I was indeed very intoxicated in my last post. But I do like to make fun of the Australians. I am actually an englishman living in New Zealand, and my drink of choice is easy - Hennessy.

Nothing beats a fine cognac, and no cognac is more fine than Hennensy, with the runner up of course being Courvoisier.

And for a fun fact, Hennessy was also Ozzy Osbourne's drink of choice!

Sophisticated Gentleman 12/07/03(Tue)05:45 No. 1210

File 134181173877.jpg - (152.32KB , 1600x891 , kentucky-bourbon-barrel-ale.jpg )

My drink of choice. Only available in Kentucky in limited quantities, but it's so damn good. Perhaps the finest beer I have ever had the pleasure of tasting.

In terms of fancier drinks, I quite like bourbon. I tend to stay away from Irish Whiskey, but a good Knob Creek or some other such bourbon usually hits the spot when I'm in front of my fireplace listening to jazz on a cold, rainy evening.

Beer and scotch man myself. If you haven't yet check out your local brewery. Go down there pick up a couple of growlers. Most will let you sample everything first so you'll never go home with a beer you don't like. Usually runs about $15 per the first time but after you own the containers its a great deal.

Sophisticated Gentleman 12/07/12(Thu)07:24 No. 1252


A fine choice! I used to dislike bourbon, but Knob Creek opened my eyes to a new world of taste! However, I still prefer my more rye oriented whiskey, which is why I'll suggest the smooth Forty Creek.

Sophisticated Gentleman 12/07/13(Fri)16:31 No. 1257

I'm partial to whiskey, Recently my uncle bought me a large bottle of "Gentleman Jack"
I also quite enjoy a high quality ale such as "black Sheep Ale"

Personally I prefer a good bourbon or an aged rum, something 20+ years old if possible. For bourbon my favorites are probably Blanton's Gold and Pappy Van Winkle 23-year, whereas for rum I would heartily recommend El Dorado 25-year or Ron Zacapa XO Gran Reserva.

McCallan 15
Oban 14
Dalmore 12 for starters

Sophisticated Gentleman 12/11/26(Mon)01:13 No. 1768

Good middle range (40-70 usd) Scotches that I like to keep on hand. Listed from peat to sherry:

Laphroaig 10 year
Highland Park 12 year
Oban 14 year
Aberlour A'bunadh

Be certain to start off neat. Sample that first off, then wait five minutes and sample again. Afterwards add a couple drops of a good bottled water and let that sit for a minute or so, sample yet again. The flavour should change considerably over these three sampling, pick whichever you like the most and run with it. Keep in mind that the Aberlour is a cask strength, so you can add a dollop rather than merely several drops.

Happy drams gentlemen.

VAT69 is my blend of choice.
As a student, I had to achieve taste for accessible marks, such as the mentioned, for my currently low social position. I hope this may change once I'm done getting my degree as a physician and a respectful job with a decent monetary retribution.
On the bright side, wine is really cheap in my country of residence, and pretty acceptable too, so in general I end up consuming it.

As a fellow lover of bourbon and sour-mash whiskey, I commend your choice, and I'd suggest trying the woodford with a pinch of fresh squeezed lime. It truly brings out the more subtle flavors already present in the bourbon. But careful not to add to much, and risk turning it into some tropical nightmare.

My spirit of choice is the easy-drinking, and charmingly complex Blanton's bourbon. It has it's detractors, but as a gentleman, I respect the rights of others to be wrong.

That is the most evil drink I've had. Ever.

Ah, Original Poster! I too, enjoy a good whisky. I will note here though that saying "Scottish" whisky is redundant, as the spelling you have chosen is particular a drink of that breed, whereas the spelling "whiskey" would be used if your drink was not Scottish. All pedantry aside, I applaud your choice of drink. It is refreshing to find another soul who enjoys drinking as it is meant to be; straight from a well crafted tumbler (preferably crystal), and a healthy enjoyment of the comfortable burn that accompanies it. That being said, I will admit with some embarrassment to being quite partial to a Cuba Libré on occasion.

Also a wine drinker. Partial to full-bodied reds myself, but all varieties and vintages are welcome at my table.

Glenlivet 12 year is my "every day" spirit of choice however I've been known to enjoy a glass of wine with dinner or even a cold pint of malt beverage whilst "chilling with bros" as I believe the vernacular expression goes.

I prefer the smoky flavour of Islay single malt whiskies. Although I have enjoyed Laphroaig for some time, I've now acquired a fine specimen of Bowmore, which is also quite exquisite.

I don't really drink, but when I do I like a nice chilled vodka. The flavor and that sting is just like melted sugar to me. Course, I enjoy a nice Absinthe every now and then, classic French or Bohemian prepared.

Hendricks gin is pretty nice. Can's say I know that much about whisky, but The Macallan 18 yr is a pretty rad and casual? If the weather's hot, then a G&T is the way to go for me. a mint leaf isn't entirely out of place in one
