I'm relatively new to whiskey. I don't drink it straight. I like Jim Beam & Coke mixed strong...about 2 parts Coke to one part Beam. I have no idea what the official mixing ratio is but this brings out a strong carmel flavor.

I've tried a few others but not many...

Elijah Craig Bourbon
Two Gingers Irish Whiskey
Costco Kirkland Small Batch Bourbon

What do you enjoy?

Edit: spelling, I'm not drinking any now...completely sober. : )

I like R&R aka Rich And Rare Canadian Whiskey, mixed with Coke.

It's pretty good. It's not like Jim Beam. It tastes a bit different as it's a blended Whiskey.

I also really like Seagram's Seven Crown. Very good stuff. It's not top shelf, but top shelf top smelf..bla bla bla.

One time in high school (Senior year) my buddy Don and I snuck a bottle into the cinema for a few extra nips.

That was after chugging down some California Coolers out of the big two litres.

We were pretty freaking messed up!

Good times..

Seagram's 7 Crown

Buy good stuff and don't pollute it.

Check out some of the smaller local makers. There is a *serious* revival of "craft" whisky making in America nowadays.

Drink local.

Agree with Tri0de. Buy a good whiskey and have it on the rocks. I prefer Jameson's.

Drink Local! Seriously, seek out some place cool and close, meh on the mega places

Here is a list that I am trying to work through. Small places, several of them quite close. The Wylie Howell Whiskey is excellent and made by a friend of mine.


1512 Spirits, Rohnert Park, CA. This micro-micro distillery in Sonoma County makes 1512 Barbershop Rye, an unaged rye whiskey.

American Craft Whiskey Distllery, Ukiah, CA. This is a project of Crispin Cain, a distiller at craft brandy producer Germain-Robin who used Germain-Robin's stills to make Low Gap, an unaged wheat whiskey.

Anchor Distilling (Griffin Group), San Francisco, CA. Old Potrero Single Malt Rye.

Ballast Point Spirits, San Diego, CA. This brewery and microdistillery makes Devil's Share Whiskey, a malt whiskey.

Charbay, St. Helena, CA. this micro in Napa County has put out two releases of its barley-based, hop flavored whiskey as well as Charbay Double and Twisted Light Whiskey.

Fog's End Distillery/C&C Shine, Salinas, CA. this distillery makes Fog's End Monterey Rye, the corn based California Moonshine and an unaged rye moonshine.

Lost Spirits Distillery, Salinas, CA. This distillery is in the process of making a peated single malt whiskey called Smokestack Lightning.

Old World Spirits, Belmont, CA. These makers of Rusty Blade Gin and La Sorciere Absinthe also make Goldrush Rye Whiskey.

St. George, Alameda, CA. The makers of numerous spirits, including St. George Single Malt, also make Breaking and Entering Bourbon, which is a blend of Kentucky bourbons (listed below under independent bottlers).

St. James, Irwindale, CA. Peregrine Rock single malt.

Stillwater Spirits, Petaluma, CA. This distillery, which makes brandy, does not sell its own whiskey yet, but they do distill the corn whiskey used in Wylie Howell Whiskey. They are also working on a bourbon and a rye.

Valley Spirits, Modesto, CA. Valley Spirits currently produces Outlaw Moonshine, an unaged wheat whiskey. They are also planning a barrel aged three grain (corn, wheat and rye) whiskey which they hope to put into barrels in 2012.

"Ballast Point Spirits, San Diego, CA. This brewery and microdistillery makes Devil's Share Whiskey, a malt whiskey."

That reminds me of Devils Cut, which I think is a Jim Beam product.

4000 wineries within a few hours drive. Don't know if I'm ever going to even get to them all, let alone try everything they make,
But worth trying.

I've recently come to like the occasional whiskey, either neat or on the rocks.

I'd like to try to some single malt scotch. What do you guys recommend?

Insanely expensive single malt Scotch whisky.
