    That settles it! That will be my next purchase!...after I finish my Insanity workouts...

    Until then, just scotch. scotchy scotch scotch. In my case: Laphroig 10. Best Islay for the money, and far better than scotches that cost twice as much. There I said it. [​IMG]


    Laphroaig is a terrific scotch, but I find I can only really enjoy it a few times a month, before the medicinal character really gets on my nerves.. There are some others out there like Ardbeg and Ardmore that are welcome breaks, while still Islays.

    Can anyone give me some recs on good bourbons/ryes for old fashioneds? What are your favorites? I'm looking to give something new a try. Thanks.

    Sazerac, Rittenhouse (bottled in bond), or Canadian Club (sherry cask). Sazerac is my favorite.

    Ardbeg...[​IMG] Ardmore, tho, I've never tried. How does it compare to the Ardbeg & Laphroig?

    Dark 'n' stormy on Appleton Extra and, regrettably, Schweppes' ginger ale.

    Making my own ginger beer is a project for a rainy day.

    Ardmore is a Highland, not an Islay. It is peated though. To my taste it is not nearly as aggressive as Ardbeg or Laphroiag so it might be good if you are looking for something a little less "in your face."

    I had this evening a GT with Ten that was followed by a GT with the standard Tanqueray. The former was noticeably smoother and did not smell of alcohol like the latter. I think I still prefer the strong botanicals of Bombay Sapphire over the two mentioned in their respective green bottles.
