Monkey shoulder is on my short list to try. It’s a malt blend, not a single malt but not cut with other cheaper grains. Sounds good, price is good. I’m presently working on a bottle of Naked Grouse which is also a blended malt that is finished in first fill sherry (casks? Vats? Not sure about that). It’s a sherry bomb, very fruity and lush, worth a try.

Monkey Shoulder is good stuff! I find Glen Moray to be a great affordable scotch. Who could go wrong on Jameson? Been a long time since I had Jim Beam or Wild Turkey. I hear the 101 is good.

I went the bourbon route after 2007 economic crisis. Dollar was crap and instead of buying Scotch I went with buy American. Current pile is Jefferson, Woodford, Buffalo Trace, Michter's and one I haven't cracked yet that my buddy picked up. It's called Oola and made in Seattle and got really high marks. Might make that my Memorial Day bourbon.

Yeah, re the trio blending of Monkey Shoulder. It’s a blend of three single malts, one being Glennfidich, plus two others that are owned by the owners of Glennfidich. (Balvenie, Glenfiddich and Kininvie) It is consistently proclaimed to be the best drinking Scotch that is “bargain level”...best bang for the buck...always have it on hand...yadda, yadda, yadda. I can see why. Very, very friendly. Like Jameson is friendly. Anyone could have one and feel good about it. Both Jameson and Monkey Shoulder are $29.95 regular price via the Oregon Liquor Control Commission.

The others? My spin:; The Bull Run is finished in Pinot Noir barrels. It is a flavor nuke. A bourbon drinker’s Bourbon. The Wild Turkey, for me, is the mixer of the crowd. It makes a crazy awesome Manhattan. The highly touted (by their own advertising) Jim Beam Black is what I save for those that drop over and we end up sharing one. Both are very good whiskeys. The Glen Moray 12 y.o. Single Malt is a very light and bright offering. Good for summer...like a wheat beer is good for Summer.

Things I have on my short list (top 5) to try:

1. Elijah Craig,
2. Buffalo Trace,
3. Rare Eagle,
4. Glennfidich 12,
5. Highland Park 12,

That otta do me for a while.

Glenfiddich and Highland Park 12 are both fine malts but you’ll find them to be in the same range as the the other tame, widely available generic malts. They are unassuming, pleasant and down the middle, but rather one trick ponies. You might want to consider venturing into a peated Islay and a sherried Speyside like Aberlour 12. You’l get an amazingly greater amount of character from Aberlour that the Glenfiddich. As far as peated Islay malts go, they’re smokey, yes, but not all are smoke bombs. Bowmore and Bunnahabhain are very well behaved and have a lot going on besides smoke, especially Bunnahabhain 12, which is probably my favorite Islay. Beware of Laphroaig and Ardbeg unless you’re in an adventurous mood. I love them personally, but I’ve seen many a man wonder wtf he just put in his mouth Laughing

Can’t find Bunnahabhain 12 on the OLCC list. So they don’t sell it in Oregon. Is the Aberlour you mention...ABERLOUR GLENLIVET 12 YEAR OLD SCOTCH? I assume it is. That’s for sale here. Both are in the $45-$50 range. The Bowmore is listed as BOWMORE 12Y (PREVIOUSLY 10 YEAR) and is $47. They are also both stocked at the closest OLCC store, which is one of the better stocked stores around. That’s one sherried Speyside and one somewhat Smokey Islay? Hmmmm. I could likely do Aberlour and Bowmore...when I get a hundred bucks ahead. Maybe Father’s Day.

The best laid plans Mr BH! 2 out of 6!

+1 for the Bowmore; a fine intro to Islays. I think I suggested elsewhere that I'm rather fond of another Islay, Lagavulin. It's not as potent as the Laphroaig in terms of smokiness, but is more complex. The distillery is located on the water's edge and I swear I can taste the sea air. Down side is it's bloomin' expensive, even here in the UK.

Aberlour and The Glenlivet are separate companies and separate distilleries but both are owned by parent company Pernod Ricard, so I’m guessing the Aberlour Glenlivet bottling you’re looking at is a special offering. A lot of independent companies will buy quantities of different malts from distilleries and release their own bottles of single malt or blends. I’d assume that is a blended malt of the two distilleries. The Aberlour I’m speaking of is Aberlour 12, their standard bottling ar 40% abv.

ABERLOUR GLENLIVET 12 YEAR OLD SCOTCH ($45)

How does it work in Oregon? Is it one of those things where it’s state licensed stores only, and that’s the only way to get the stuff? I guess I’m lucky here (can’t say that very often, California sucks). The booze warehouse that is Total Wine and Spirits has probably 200 different bottles of scotch and bourbon down one aisle. I’ll stand there for 25 minutes just looking everything over.

Yes, state run and state licensed stores. Oh...and state sets max price. Individual stores can do their own price reductions as well as state doing a reduced price thing. It’s all very glamorous and thrilling.

Abelour makes some really fine single malt scotch, if you prefer that style.

And as for the bourbons, if Buffalo Trace is actually available, load up. Probably the best low end bottle you can get....it's just really hard to find. For a little bit more, Four Roses Single Barrel is awesome

Good suggestions.  The OLCC has an online search function.  Plug in your zip and what you’re looking for and then hit the correct product code and BINGO you get stock on hand in the various OLCC Stores within X miles.

Here’s a screenshot of the Buffalo Trace stock within 10 miles of my zip...no worries about the hard to find thing around here!

Pretty slick, eh?

Finally popped for a bottle of the Buffalo Trace.  Did my wife two huge favors this morning so I’m paying myself back.  

Did a shot in my flared snifter thing and to my nose, got the typical vanilla, honey followed by caramel, cinnamon & slight black pepper tasting notes.  Nice light spice.  Must be the light rye content. The mash is 85% corn...so it’s definitely sweet.  Very friendly.  Damn fine Bourbon for $25! Arguably the best $25 item on the shelf.


Next tester will maybe be Eagle Rare. It’s made by Buffalo Trace too, with the exact same mash recipe as Buffalo Trace...but aged 10 years instead of maybe about 6 on the BT (?). But the age on BTrace is a guess as it’s not age stamped.

IMHO Highland Park 12 along with Talisker 10 are the finest single malts <100. I'd keep it on the list.

Yeah...Highland Park 12 is roundly acknowledged as a number one Scotch by most everyone.  Here in Oregon it goes for $55 which is actually pretty reasonable for “the best”. More of a sherry thing?

I’d like to try the Magnus version too. Entry level Highland Park. It’s a $40 bottle here. Peaty background?

Then there’s the Talisker single malt 10 for $60. More of a smoky thing?

Talisker is hard to define. I know Islay fans who hate it, I know highland fans who hate it. It's quite different.

Medicinal is the word I'd use. It's a flavor not widely found, but if you hook into it, it's better than mother's milk. I suppose it's closest to Islays, but not quite...

PostSubject: Re: Friday Night Whiskey Tasting   Friday Night Whiskey Tasting EmptySat Apr 20, 2019 10:36 am

Big Scotch Whisky fan here, what I do is a Forever bottle of Whisky, the past couple of years I have been putting a half inch of different Scotch Whisky in to a bottle until it's filled up, take out a couple of Drams and top up with another bottle.

This gives a very different taste every time you enjoy a drink out of it, So far my bottle has had these added to it.

Aultmore 12
Balvenie 10 Founders Reserve
Glenlivet 12
Glenrothes 12
Glendronach Cask Strength Batch 7
Auroisk 18 Coopers Choice
Glenglassaugh Pedro Jiminez Finish
Glenteachters 19 Casks 1407-1408
Tullibardine24 1993 Cask 12026
Tamnavullin Double Cask
Glen Grant 10
Gordon & McPhailStrathmill 2002-2016
Glenlivet Founders Reserve
Master of Malt Strathmill 11
Aberlour Casg Annamh

The only rules I use are Scotch only, No Blends, and No Peaty Smoke as this can overpower the taste leaving it a Smokey profile, if you want this then do a separate bottle.

One that I don't have in the mix yet is but I can highly recommend is a Glenfarclas 15, a beautiful Sherried Dram, a bit pricey but worth is and one to savour and enjoy sipping slowly.

PostSubject: Re: Friday Night Whiskey Tasting   Friday Night Whiskey Tasting EmptySat Apr 20, 2019 11:50 am

allyby - I’ve heard of others doing a “forever bottle” which has always sounded like a fun project. It’s always seemed like a risky thing for me to start as it would fill slowly and that long term scant bottle would likely degrade due to there being too much air in the bottle for too long. Is that a fair concern?

Plus...my bottle would be mostly entry level Bourbon & non-smoky Scotch. I’d hate to sully some decent dram with other far more pedestrian stuff.

Is there anywhere in the U.S that you can buy get something like this.

https://www.masterofmalt.com/blend-your-own-whisky/?gclid=EAIaIQobChMItNmgzYXf4QIVjOd3Ch27wQN8EAAYASAAEgKinPD_BwE

If not you could always start with a full bottle then when you have a half bottle left fill that one up with different Malts, you make your own rules with this no hard and fast methods.

Whisky will keep for at least a year with a couple of drams left in it but if it's topped up fairly regular you'll have no problems as long as it's filled to the neck, as little air as possible and it will keep forever as long as you have a good stopper.

It is a fun project and amazing how it differs in taste from one tasting to the next, look up youtube for videos, there are plenty going around.
