Wife and I picked up a bottle of Redbreast 12YO for Thanksgiving dinner. Of course, we couldn't wait until the 24th, so we've had a few tastes.

This is our first experience with a pot still whiskey -- I think it might be one of a handful of whiskeys still done in that style -- and we're both smitten. Very rich and full, quite sweet but loaded with spice that balances the flavor wonderfully. And the finish is particularly nice for a pipe smoker, as there's a bit of tobacco, along with berry and dark chocolate in the finish.

A bottle of Cabin Fever which is a Maple Flavored whisky made in New Hampshire. Incredibly smooth mild maple flavor and not a goopy sweet whisky. Highly recommended for a nice woodsy dram.

Working through a bottle of Glenmorangie 10

It's good. Not sure if I'd buy it again... I prefer heavy PEAT flavor in my scotch

Last I bought was Laphroaig Quarter Cask. The lady of the house hates it--"smells like smoked meat"--which is exactly why I like it.

More recently, I got a big bottle of Maker's as "payment" for officiating a wedding... that'll make you feel like a country preacher.

I've tried one--one of pipesandcigars' aro blends. A Brother sent me a generous sample. Very, very sweet blend, but a definite eggnog flavor!

How's the Forty Creek? I noticed that one on the shelf the other day and almost picked it up, but went for a bottle of Bushmills instead.

Forty Creek to me is what Crown Royal wishes it could be. I prefer it over Crown any day. Similar mouth feel, however not quite as sweet to me as Crown. At $20 a fifth it's worth a try my friend. Trust me, you'll finish the bottle.

Snagged a holiday gift set of Glenmorangie 10yr Friday for 31 smackers, the exact cost of a bottle alone around here. Came with two nice sniffers, not the typical shoddy things you get in sets like this. Really good stuff, I see why it's rated so highly!

Eagle Rare, 10 y/o. Easily the most refined yet tasty bourbon I've drank. I never thought it could get any better than JD, but then I'm a whiskey noob.

Got this as a Christmas gift from my co-workers. The "expert" opinions rate it about 3 out of 5 stars. Drinking it neat was not my cup of tea. I have enjoyed a couple already with two ice cubes. Not bad in my book.

A small tradition, each Christmas I buy a bottle of a "higher" grade of spirits and take it up to the shop (my motorcycle shop friends). We pour a shot for everyone and salute the season. Sometimes we even have an extra shot, in case we missed someone. This year I bought a bottle of George Dickel "Barrel Select." This is VERY good stuff. It beats all of those Beam small batches all to heck...maybe even farther than heck. Mid $30's in price, about the same as the Beam crowd, but much better. I always liked Dickels, this one is just better.

Just opened a bottle of Jameson (12 year old).

Not a huge fan of peat, so I tend to go with the Irish brands.
