I said:

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).
tomintoul is also one of my favorites and laphroaig is one of my least favorites. but how can you like a good vodka over a good scotch

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.

Not necessarily. Dan's post is a bit confusing in that regard. He may be talking about the Nadurra (which is an 18y/o) or the 1991 from any of the previous years... Clarification in 3...2...1...

You should.  Better than 15/Nadurra/18/21 IMHO.

Dan, thanks for the fork. Any way you can turn it into a poll?

What is your preferred alcoholic beverage:

  • Vodka
  • Scotch

(obviously some people might prefer other drinks, but if we start adding it starts getting complicated...)

I was waiting for these threads to merge,
Can we at least put Bourbon up there.

If by 21 you mean GL Archive... that stuff is good.
Woodford Reserve FTW.
+1
I always like to keep a bottle on hand. Its good and pretty cheap

Isn't Bourbon/Scotch/Whiskey all the same thing just distilled in different regions?
