So it's friday evening and I'm at a local ABC for my bi-weekly liquor run, browsing the isles looking for something new when I find myself at the Scotch isle standing....staring at all the different labels with no idea what to get. When in walks a gentleman straight by me, pauses for a second so I ask "what's good?" he reaches for Dewars White label & turns to walk away and says with a grin "it's all good!" as he reaches the counter to pay he adds "after the first couple anyway". So I pick up the next bottle of the same (added bonus was a cool "rocks" glass mounted on top of the bottle).
Since the NY pipe show, when Doc Watson shared a shot of Scotch with several of the brothers; I've felt like smoking a bit of English tobac while sipping a Scotch (some familiar flavor in there). So Friday night I fired up my cob filled with Squadron Leader with the cool little glass filled with Dewars and a chunk of ice (with a little water chaser).
My expectations were fully met, what a wonderful combination!
I'm not sure what it is, but Scotch and English tobac just seem to be made for one another.
Give it a try!

I have found that scotch is an acquired taste.
I love it.

But I usually drink the US's native spirit : Bourbon

Ezra Brooks 90 proof lately

That's my usual too, and that's what I'm used to drinking. I do occasionally get the itch for a new spirit though.

I usually start in the Bourbon isle and if nothing catches my eye I move on to the Rums, Ryes, etc. this week it was Scotch. I don't know what's going on with Rye it's been non existant lately, do they only produce it certain times of the year?

I think Ryes are only in production (bottling) for a short time every year.
But don't quote me on that.

Been drinking a lot of scotch lately - mainly because I'm lazy and just pouring it in the glass is way easier than mixing a drink. However, now that it's getting warmer, but not quite martini weather for us, we've been drinking a variation on a old fashioned. Had a few of these last night...

Tbsp of sugar
Tsp of maraschino cherry juice
1 maraschino cherry
1 small orange slice (rind removed)

Put in the bottom of the glass and mash it around.

Add a few ice cubes, pour whiskey in half way, fill the other half with sour mix (we just use lemonade). I drink my scotch neat so as not to water down the flavor, so this drink has been a nice change of pace.

EJ,
Dewar's is a good choice for a blended scotch. And as you have said, English mixtures go very well with a dram of scotch as a compliment.
IMHO there are no bad scotches. As for a hot summer evening my preference is a blended scotch and soda with a twist of lemon. Nice and refreshing for sure.
Single Malts are my favorite tho. The differences in flavor from region to region is a pleasant treat and the labels/makers are endless.
If I had to list my favorites and keeping it short it would be Cragganmore, Balvenie Doublewood, Caol Ila, and MacCallan, which covers several regions and flavors.
Hope to join some of my BoB's soon for a sip and a smoke. Maybe in Chicago or Richmond??? Eric and Mark I'm sure you're up to another trip.
Cheers.
Doc Very Happy Very Happy

Right now I am enjoying a nice bombay saphire martini with one olive dirty. So far pretty good, it could probably stand to be a bit dirtier. drunken

That's one heck of an aperitif MB.
I'd be making some interesting dishes after a couple of those 151's
Stopped to buy the Chicago pipe show bottle today. Chose MacCallan Cask Strength single malt. Definitely not an aperitif.
Enjoy

Not sure I have tried the cask strength, but I love the no. 12. This is becoming my favorite single malt, even though I got a couple of bottles of Glenfiddich 12 that go down very nice as well.

Right now, I'm on a Johnny Walker Gold kick. I need to go see if they are still on sale.

I've been a Glenlivet man since asking for single-malt Scotch would put a questioning look of the face of most any mid-West bartender. No reason to change now Very Happy .
