drinking is degenerate
willet rye or die plebs
There's drinking and then there's drinking. Which do you refer to as degenerate?
I love whiskey it makes me feel like a man!
Exquisite taste, gentlemen.
ah yes, willet rye
I used to be a drunk. Quit because I'm not a pleasant drinker.
am slavic so it's a drag :(
this is probably the best bourbon i've ever had
This is my favorite bourbon currently
blended malt scotch
I think you need to find out what those words mean.
I’m not really a bourbon drinker but I like makers mark
Grabbed a bottle of Gibson's Finest Rare 12 today, heard good things about it.
And a tiny 100ml of Grant's Family Reserve, just in case I get lucky and have a cheap scotch I can buy by the bucket and enjoy.
this. fucking soyboys and their whisky.
Now, whisky is definitely making a comeback, and soyboys trying to be tough and fratfags trying be sophisticated is definitely part of and a growing part of the whisky consumers, but it's a bit silly to assume everyone is doing that.
You can't assume everyone that drinks wine just wants to feel artistocratic, or that everyone who drinks gin is a wannabe "mixologist".
Everyone who drinks Jack is a fag though, leaving that there.
Just let us like what we like, we'll let you like what you like, and we'll keep to our own threads, yeah?
I'm like whiskey to sip but I just dislike bourbon unless it's mixed. Not a fan of the sweetness.
Lots of butter out of the grant's, never had that before.
Gibson's needs more time, I don't really know my way around rye yet.
I prefer Few but Buffalo is also very good.
nice northernlion gif
is whiskey too manly for a girl?
BT is good but 4RSiB is where it's at
Does it matter?
Lil pricey but sure
*blocks your liver*
i drain a few liters of this shit per week
Meh. Its overrated. Plenty of better bourbons out there for much cheaper.
$30-35 isn't too bad for the OBSV single barrel. It's cheap enough to always have stocked.
I'm aware I posted a private select bottle which I would agree does get expensive
my #1 is pic related, for us boozers on a budget
Is it weird if I like Jim Bean more than the two more expensive/higher rated bottles I got?
who /gin/ here
Black version is damn good
This shit right here was my go to until it just disappeared. 14$ for a handle that tasted like a better Jack Daniels
Enjoy dying of dehydration, moralfag.
Alcohol is sort of icky but it's nice to have bourbon with ginger ale added.
I like this sentiment. It's getting old how some asshole always has to bust in here and be a downer in an on-topic thread with interested folks. there's entire fucking boards dedicated to shitposting, why bother us?
fuck I can't stand beer, but I don't go shit up the beer threads. good on them I say. I can talk about all the other stuff I like here
Slowly but surely developing a love for gin.
Had a G&T once, then tried martinis, now Negronis, probably aviation next.
Don't seem to enjoy it much straight though, but that's probably just me not having the palate for it yet.
Drinking this now, it was a gift from a friend visiting me from North Carolina. It's pretty good.
want to start drinking whiskey
do some reading and decide to start with Irish whiskey
get to try some Jameson at a friends house
it's fucking awful
not much of an alcohol burn just shit taste
get turned off the entire thing
fast forward a couple of months
regain interest in it
read some more differences between whiskey styles
decide on bourbon (I like sweet and spicy alcohol in general)
want something cheap so I don't regret it if I end up hating it
buy a 35cl bottle of white label Jim Beam
try it neat first
taste is nice, if a bit simple
but oh the fucking alcohol burn
not a hard liquor drinker in general
aftertaste is very nice, warm, sweet, with a little bit of spice
again, not the most complex drink but I'm a babby anyway
try another glass
this time I water it down a bit (about a tablespoon) to help with the alcohol burn
smooths out the drink considerably
also removes all the flavor
I can't decide if I like it more neat or with some water. Diluting it really helps since the alcohol burn is pretty harsh to me since I'm not used to it, but the "reward" of the flavor is also gone meaning what little alcohol burn is left just feels pointless now.
I get that whiskey is an acquired taste, kind of like coffee, but holy shit does it have to be this hard. I just want something spicy, warm, and flavorful without feeling like my mouth is on fire. Do they make 30% whiskeys or should I just keep going until I get used to the burn? I used to drink straight vodka when I was a freshman, and after about a month I could barely taste the alcohol anymore. Will it be the same here?
aviations are overrated, but do try a holland gin cocktail
Babby couldn't handle drinking because he is isn't a very nice person deep down inside and the alcohol pulls away the mask
Maybe you should spend more time self reflecting and improving yourself instead of being a contrarian on an anonymous internet imageboard.
Why do trenchcoat warriors never buy appropriate footwear? Its almost always light colored payless sneakers.
Grants is okay. They sell big bottles at Costco Liquor for cheap.
Teachers Highland Cream and Famous Grouse are some other decent, inexpensive blends to try.
Yeah, gin is good. I usually go for Bombay Sapphire or Tanqueray since they're good, readily available and not super expensive.
Try adding just a few drops of water next time and try and find a balance between smoothness and flavour.
whisky is definitely making a comeback
i fucking hate statements like this. whiskey never fucking "left", you 'tards, it's as popular as it ever has been, and i've been hearing about this "comeback" for like 15 years now
"Comeback" is the wrong word, I was wrong to use it.
It's popularity is growing. Soyboys who want to be manly are buying it now, and new drinkers who try it to be as manly as the soyboys are trying it and turning out to actually like it.
From what I hear, it's mostly this "cocktail revolution" that's apparently going on, faggot mixologists trying to pretend that pouring liquids over ice and stirring it is an art.
These two things is why it's as popular as it ever has been.
I like a good cocktail, but any schlomo can doll up a cocktail.
Though for all I know "comeback" might be appropriate in some places, I've heard brandy went from an aristocratic drink, to a drink for niggers, and now it's just a spirit like everything else, so many in some areas whisky was a hick drink and now people are moving away from that.
I get a lot of buttery popcorn out of it.
It's not "good", but it's scotch. Might be the sort of thing I buy a stupid huge bottle of just to have around to make my good shit last longer.
You get used to it. You might also be adding too much water.
When I started drinking whisky that wasn't bourbon, I got absolutely nothing out of it. Even bourbon was mostly more burn than flavour.
Keep drinking it, try different things with it, just go back to the bottle every so often.
The bottle of Gibson's 12 I got the other day is my first 100% rye (I think, at least), and I got nothing out of it for two days, but now I'm picking up what it's putting down.
The correct answer.
Been really enjoying Distillers Cut. For the price it's really good.
I rate it at 4.3 out of 5
Now that sounds like a treat.
Speaking of brandy, this stuff is $14 and tastes like a $30 bourbon. Great if you like vanilla notes.
Anyone who drinks a specific alcohol for the image is a soyboy, plain and simple. Just drink what you actually like you faggots.
Only brandy I've had is the St.Remy VSOP, nice enough for the pricetag, but if I can get brandy that tastes like bourbon I'll have to try it.
You've tried 2 of the cheapest thus more burn of the bigger brands.
Buy something nicer or learn to drink.
It's aged in bourbon barrels, at least all the ones I've seen at the stores. I just noticed the image I posted doesn't say that on the label, so it may not all be done that way and the others probably taste more like a regular brandy.
fuck off back to /pol/eddit you underage idiot
Implying willett rye can even be found lol.
Rittenhouse rye is gr8. For bourbon I like willett pot still reserve
I had a lot of orange bulleit the other day
i love whiskey!!
I thought there was just regular Bulleit and the Bulleit rye.
You know, if you had a criticism of whisky and the people who drink it, you would have shared it. Frogposting is not an opinion.
he means the bourbon (the orange bottle)
if trolling then 4/10 for making me reply
Nope, actually figured maybe there was some orange bulleit somewhere. Might've made for neat Boulevardiers if it existed.
