I never drink expensive whiskies, but this one's the best I've tasted recently:



My favorite Scotch, by far. A friend who worked at a bar got it for me as a going away present of sorts. This was over a year ago, and I still have a wee bit left. Smoky and peaty as hell, like drinking a flaming piece of swamp soil. So good.

I also like a good gin and tonic, and I'm strictly a Bombay Sapphire man in that regard.

I don't really like vodka, but when I drink it I get down with some Belvedere or Grey Goose.

My room is also the delectable Sailor Jerry, both for it's taste and tattooed legacy.

I've also been known to enjoy a good sake from time to time. I couldn't name any brands, but my mom was tricked by an unsavory waiting into buying a forty dollar bottle once. Bastards.

Anyone who likes rum needs to get their hands on a bottle of Dogfish Head's Brown Rum...unbelievable.


Definitely second this. I had a sample at the brewery during a roadtrip last Spring and it blew me away. I don't even like rum and I would definitely sip this like a good boutbon/scotch.

I brought a bottle back with me that I haven't even opened, I've been saving for a special occasion.

Excellent rum made in one of the worlds only green booze facilities.
The patate is handwoven by Guatemalan villagers, which is a great source of income for them.



The first organic rye vodka in the states. Fucking smoothness off the charts. The cucumber is easily my favorite, but they have a botanical that's infused with everything from rose to coriander.



For when you know better than to drink Jamo but can't afford Middleton.



My favorite new liqueur made with ginger infused eau de vie. Good w/ pear vodka and lime or as a shot with a fernet float.

this reminds me that I left two bottles at my old house with my brother. I mean, the real shit, and a bottle of thujone extract. I'm sure it will be gone when I go back...I'm hoping he doesn't see it.

Jack Daniels is my drink of choice. I love Makers and Woodford, but Jack is what I usually buy. That new Red Stag from Jim Beam is good with cola.

I wen to t he Woodford Distillery last year. Highly recommend it if you are in bourbon country.

As far as absinthe is concerned, I have fucked the green fairy a few times. We started off with a kiss and took it from there. I have a bottle and a half in my bar for special occasions. I also have a bottle of Cask 16 (Crown Royal finished in Bourbon Barrels) down there right now.

Very much seconded.


A few years back, I was on a real Gin kick. Now it tends to be a bit much for me, but I still love this stuff:




My new favorite tequila:




If I had my way (meaning much more money), I'd take this stuff over just about any tequila:



Had the opportunity to taste some of their stuff made from this wild agave that only grows sporadically in the shade. At $200 a bottle, it's something I'd never buy, but it was one of the best things to ever happen to my mouth.

I am truly more of a beer person (Stone & Mendocino Brewing are current favs). I really don't like mixed drinks, and my taste in liquor is kind of pricey, so I'll usually only get a bottle for special occasions. It's better (for me) that way.

I'm a beer drinker.

But Jewel of Russia Vodka is where it's at. After that I just go with Kettle or something around $30-$40. If I'm shooting something it's usually either Patron, Don Julio, Jager or some stupid mixed shooter. If I'm sipping something, any good whiskey will do. I was never feeling rum or gin.

I'm a bloody mary fiend.

Best vodka I've ever had, hands down, and I've tried everything the liquor store has to offer.

Jaeger comes in a close second as my favorite.

edit: Oh I guess you can't really read it. It's "General John Stark" vodka and it's made from apples at a winery in southern NH.

edit2: and sweet jesus how did no one mention Grey Goose yet?

A common misconception. The reputation that Absinthe received is not accurate. It's simply a higher volume of alcohol. It is not a hallucinogenic. I need to invest in a liquor company. A fancy one. Perhaps Absinthe related and bank off of myth.
