    Japan's Suntory whisky is mighty tasty stuff I will admit.

    Maybe, but I bet they don't make HAGGIS!

    Lance, you had a chance to try Japanese whiskey? According to the article, Japanese whiskey is hard to find in Canuckland. [​IMG]

    Hmm, that reminds me, I should check Willowpark Liquor Store here in town.

    Willow park is good for almost anything, Max. if you can't find it there, check out the place at Glenmore landing, I can't remember the name of it... I'm told that place is good as well, and it's owned, or operated, I can't remember, by the guy who does the wines in the Herald.

    To my taste, there are at least 3 major categories of whiskey. Scotch whiskey, which I can't abide. Blended whiskey, AKA Canadian whiskey, smooth yet somewhat bland. And sour mash whiskey, my preference.

    I was just in Scotland 2 weeks ago and I picked up a bottle of some of the best Scotch I have ever had. If you can find a Bottle of Edradour pick it up. YUMMY

    Irish, followed VERY closely by the Scottish, and in a distant third, the US (Jack's a beauty).

    What is sour mash whiskey? Sounds...barbaric. Could be good. [​IMG]

    Edradour...must be pricey heh.

    I'll have to check Glenmore Landing out...for some reason the liquor store there is in my blindspot - I never see the storefront!

    Well, considering that Japan has a higher per-capita alcoholism rate than Scottland, this isn't all that surprising. [​IMG]

    Of course, much as i love Japanese films and cultural traditions, i have to say the best ever Whisky was.. Welsh whisky. So good, it was no doubt stamped out by the devilish jealous Saxons and lost in the mists of time, to be rediscovered, when Merlin awakes from his mountain prison, and Arthur returns to free Celtic Britain.

    The Edradour wasn't that bad. I picked up a bottle at Heathrow and paid less then my boss did in Scotland, only 27.50 which is about


    $50.00 us

    They may MAKE the best whiskey in Eastern Tennessee, but can they DRINK it ?

    Thought the county Jack was produced in is dry ?

    Knob Creek kicks the poo out of any other sour mash whiskey I've had.
