  • Bourbon or Scotch?

    First of all, hey people. Hope you have been safe and well during these uncertain times. We need to reflect on our true nature as well as the intertwined spirit of humanity as we fully understand how difficult it is to be away from the touch and mental stimulation of strangers and friends.

    second of all, I’ve been drinking more as we all have. I’m a newbie to whisky. I like Mezcal... and they aren’t that far apart in reality.

    so far I’ve only picked up a bottle of Elijah Craig small batch which I researched is a good bourbon. It’s nice , I sipped in neat which will take some time. Also good in an old fashioned.

    I also picked up a bottle of Glenlivet 12 as someone said it’s a good starter scotch. It’s smooth but I wish it had some
    smoke or more character.

    any tips for a whisky newbie?

      Scotch is pricey,

      MaCallan’s 10 or 12

      I like Islay scotches, but usually they’re pricy but for one that’s $30ish a bottle McClendon’s Islay is a go to “cheap” scotch that I like a lot.

        Uh... yeah. They’re pretty far apart. Mezcal is more of a brandy.

        That said, Blanton’s, Basil Hayden or Hudson are great. Woodford is nice.

          Bourbon is objectively superior.

              I mean Mezcal and Bourbon are derived in different manners of different ingredients.

                I like Basil Hayden. Haven't had it in years.

                  Nah. Bourbon is better bang for your buck for the normal price range, and I drink it more but good scotch is just better than good bourbon.

                    Yould be wrong. But that’s okay. We don’t expect much out of Philadelphians.

                      Press F to pay respect for city’s old man taste buds.

                      Bourbon is American, therefore superior to all other forms of liquor, especially scotch. This is not a subject of debate, but rather a fact, like the speed of light and Philadelphia smelling like piss.

                        Make fun of my old man pallet all you want, but ripping me smelling like piss hits too close to home for me and my people.

                          Once at 17 or so, me and a friend stayed at my family’s sailboat. My dad had a small liquor cabinet. To not create suspicion and drink a bunch of one booze, we had the bright idea to drink a little of all of them. We did shots of scotch, vodka, gin, bourbon, mezcal and I think coffee liquor.

                          This had to have been 22 years ago and I still remember that hangover.

                            The only people I have ever known to own a sailboat were a pair of college professors at Jacksonville State.

                              My dad loved sailing on lake Lanier growing up and bought a boat in the 90s. We still have it. It’s a 45 minute ride and then you’re out of Atlanta. He’ll leave his house and go up there for a few nights probably every two weeks.

                              It’s pretty chill up there. FAEF62AB-5DCB-4708-866C-DCDCA444598E.jpeg
