Any One for a Scotch? - Page 10

post #136 of 3193
I just opened a bottle of Royal Lochnagar. Nice, smooth...similar fruitiness and nuttiness to the Cragganmore but a little less of a kick at the finish.

Thumbs up.

My drink of choice is Johnny Walker. My favorate mixed drink is a Manhattan. I had one yesterday that was like heaven. And, it was at a Chilli's.

the sub-par (IMO) Crown Royale

connemara, do you mean Crown Royal? I believe that is a Canadian Rye whisky, rather than a Scotch. I would recommend it primarily for mixed drinks. I fancy it for "rye and diet" after touch football games in cooler weather, though the Canadian Club Classic 12yr or Wiser's Very Old 18yr are much to be preferred

Say what you will about the whole Connemara situation but one thing is for certain, scotch whisky has been unfairly dragged into this shameful discussion. Aren't scotch drinkers responsible people?

No worries, Kent -- Connemara is an Irish whisky afterall. I don't know if Scots whisky drinkers are responsible or not. I am, but that isn't saying anything much. I will say that Crown Royal does make a mean Old Fashioned. ~ Huntsman

Well, I don't know about that, but I do know that if he comes back from his all-expenses-paid NYC junket without a bottle of Cragganmore, I'm going to start a new thread taking the piss out of him. That should be good for about 20 pages of pigpile fun.

Is anyone familiar with this?
post #144 of 3193
I've neither seen nor heard of that one, LS. Where/how did you come by it?

I got the photo on e-mail - apparently it's bottled in Scotland by a Danish importer (Aftappet i Scotland - Bottled in Scotland). That's really all I know.

One of my favorite dessert recipes is a Scotch caramel ice cream. It's not worth using too high-end of a Scotch, since the medium doesn't convey a lot of the aroma and subtlety, but it's pretty damn good with Glenlivet.

I"ll have to get it at home and post it. As the name suggests, you caramelize sugar (I use raw sugar, although I don't think the original recipe called for it) in scotch. Beyond that, it's much like making any other homemade ice cream. But as I said, I'd be happy to post the step-by-step.

This past Sunday night before an exquisite Cioppino dinner, I tried, for the first time, the Macallan Cask Strength with a splash of water... Good Night! It was simply SPECTACULAR! I am officially a disciple of this man
