Print off my list of favorites, including everyday ones, and buy some. After tasting them, report back to us.
Scotch and Cognac great spirits. But when it comes down to QPR, I recommend aged rum. Period.

I don't drink a lot of liquor but when I do it is occasionally scotch or more often cognac.
I poured 2 fingers in a lowball glass. My impression of the first sip was one of cognac that had been sweetened, and the sweet flavor was overpowering the best of the tasting notes. By the end of the glass I was enjoying it a bit more.
Rum may not be for me. I'll give it a couple more chances, but I can't imagine drinking this over cognac or scotch regularly.
