You guys are comparing a bourbon to a whiskey that makes no sense.

I prefer bourbon to single malt. How can that not make sense to me?

As a personal preference that's fine, but as a comparisons which is what your posts with the other guy sounded like... It makes no sense.


this is where the comparison doesn't make sense unless you meant to talk about the hype level which would of been good to explain.

"Is pappy Japanese whiskey good" - this is where the conparison doesn't make sense unless you meant to talk about the hype level which would of been good to explain.

I prefer Pappy Van Winkle to the Japanese malt whiskies I have tried. Seems pretty straight forward to me, but whatever..

The Japanese have a whiskey I can compare it to. If you don't want to express a preference for a spirit based on one grain over another, you are free to refuse to.

Um, no. His comparison may not say anything about, say, whether Japan could produce a bourbon equal or superior to PVW. But it doesn't purport to. He makes very clear what's being compared to what, and what his preference is. That makes perfect sense, even if it doesn't answer some different question that you are more interested in.

Saying "I prefer New York bagels to Chicago deep dish pizza" makes sense and is a perfectly clear statement. It may not settle the question of "which city has the best pizza?", but it doesn't purport to.

Is it really that good or is it Chicago deep dish good?

Don't people living in Chicago not eat deep dish? I always thought it was tourists eating deep dish.

I was with sinnedk but those are pretty good points. You can compare and prefer bagels to pizza. I guess it depends on the question but considering we were talking about Japanese whiskey it seems to make more sense to compare it to scotch (considering origin) or Irish whisky (considering production method). Bourbon just tastes so different from Japanese whisky. Made differently from different things

Nah, I think they do. There are a couple of chains in the burbs that seem to do well. I used to spend some time in the burbs of Chicago and Giordanos was my favorite. I could get a small and eat dinner all week.

Speaking of Chicago, and relevant to this thread, Binnys has some of the greatest selection of scotch I've every seen this side of the pond.

Sure, I get that. Like I said, the statement can make sense on its own, but may be more useful or less useful as a building block in some further syllogism. "Socrates is a man" tells you a good deal about whether he's mortal, but not so much about whether he prefers his hemlock neat or on the rocks.

Ice is for suckers.

When it comes to single malt
