Scotch Or Vodka?
« on: October 25, 2011, 08:50:50 PM »
My guest bedroom in Far Rockaway? Good kiddush..goose or stolly from the freezer  ;)

That's what you consider good Vodka?

What about Tito's, Belvedere, Zabrowka, Beluga, Imperial Soft, Zyr etc. etc.??

Had Imperial Soft and it tasted like Absolut...I will have to give the others a try though.

Mind you Absolut (no e at the end, thought you were saying Absynthe for a second) isn't that bad (compared to Smirnoff, RS, etc). To be fair when I had Imperial Soft it was freezing cold so maybe that's why it went down so smoothly.

Really? The only bourbon I found interesting was Knob Creek (IIRC) and it had a serious kick...

Those two are scotch whiskeys.

Macallan is overrated IMHO, as a non-whiskey-drinker there are lots of other single malts I'd prefer (e.g. Tomintoul, Laphroaig, Glenmorangie, and others).

The Laphroaig might have to do with the memories associated with drinking it ;)

I can't explain the vodka preference, but I'm sure that's my preference, and I've had my fair share of good scotch.
