1991 is another way of saying 21..no?

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...

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...)

Can we at least put Bourbon up there.

If by 21 you mean GL Archive... that stuff is good.
Woodford Reserve FTW.

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

Theoretically yes, but try drinking Dewars, Crown Royal, Jack Daniels, Johnny Walker (even the green/blue is blended!!!) etc and you'll immediately agree that scotch is in a class of its own.

Different regions and different rules, for example bourbon has to be from corn

After I wen to yeshiva in Israel for two years the site of Vodka or toot banana drink makes me nauseous.

Most of the time I will enjoy bourbon over scotch if the bottle is under $50 but once its over $50 usually scotch is my drink of choice
I take no responsibility for the results of your actions

$50? Good bottles of both bourbon and scotch can be had for less than that (in the right places). Perhaps that's another reason I'm a Vodka guy ;)

I think Glenlivet 15/French Oak is a good value for a great drink at about $40 or so.

$40 sounds cheap for that bottle.
IMHO, best value under 50- Glenmorangie Original

Depends where you shop IME. You said you like Tomintoul, I just bought the 16yr for $33 in Brooklyn IIRC.
