Molson Canadian is a crappy mass market lager, no doubt. But it's better than that other dreck. I would offer that familiarity has bred contempt to the point of lost objectivity.

Maybe since Bud is an import for you, you subconsciously think it tastes better than Molson?

I think Bud, while shit, is objectively better than Canadian. Coors is the worst though.

Canadian, coors and bud are all shit. I lose respect for anyone who says Coors is their favorite beer. Beer flavored water

Any bourbon/whiskey fans around? Getting more into it (more efficient/relaxing than beer). Just got a bottle of Michter's Unblended American, it's whiskey blended in pre-used bourbon barrels (so technically not bourbon), enjoying it so far.

Big fan of scotch over here. Would like to get more into other whiskeys (and dark rums, for that matter), but I don't really know what's good and don't really want to plunk $50+ down on a whim too many times

Pretty much always have makers on hand for cocktails, and currently have some laphroig, johnnie walker blue, and crown royal black (don't love this one) on my shelf.

I am. Prefer bourbon. Don't really like rye whiskey.

Woodford Reserve is my go to, and Maker's. I saw Woodford has a Double Oaked bourbon, and I saw another one called Angel's Envy at my local liquor store. They're on my wish list.

Not really a big scotch drinker, personally.

I keep buffalo trace and bulliet rye on the shelf for cocktails (and neat occasionally with the former). Both are delicious at the price point.

Blanton's bourbon is incredible. Johnny Walker Blue. Woodford reserve is also really good, but it's way too strong for a lot of people puts hair on your nuts if you know what I mean.

Tullamore Dew is my go to Irish whiskey

Kind of the same way on the first paragraph. Found a go-to store where I just show up, tell em roughly what I'm looking for and what I want to spend, and ask what their recommendation would be. has worked pretty well so far.

Slowly getting into scotch, Maccallan's 12 year is pretty solid.

Bolded is me and I agree completely. Mac 12 is my fav normally priced scotch so far.

Both of these are semi-regulars for me.

Agreed with everyone on Macallan 12. If I had to pick a favorite scotch it'd be that, but my tastes keep changing on me. I bought Macallan 15 as a gift for a friend recently - he said it was great, but I haven't had the chance to drink any with him.

Might have to give one of the ones on Craig's list a try soon. I don't think I've had any of them.

Sweetwater are great.

Mac 12 is a pretty common "I'm just getting into Scotch" favourite Scotch. I think I went from there to Scapa, if memory serves. Around the same price point.

Honestly wasn't too impressed with eagle rare. Four roses is good though.

Evan Williams single barrel vintage is decent at a reasonable price.

Eagle is my least favorite on the list, though I haven't tried the EH Taylor yet. Really like the Weller and Hudson.

Laphroaig. That is all. (Note: did a year of field research in Scotland.)

Do they have the distillery tours out there as well? I did a few in Kentucky that were really fun, listening to those guys talk about their process is interesting. Will have to check out Laphroaig.

Also curious how the Ron Swanson/Nick Offerman phenomenon has affected Lagavulin's business.

Yes, you can do tours. I didn't do one, but know you can. Laphroaig is very smokey, just know that going in. If you can get into a Johnnie Walker tasting event, I'd highly suggest it. Very informative about single malts--they have you taste a variety of singles and talk about how they contribute to the blend. Personally, I don't think anyone should have a "favorite" scotch, just because there is such variety and a "time and place" aspect.

I've heard this too. Since I'm a beginner I'm not fighting it, I certainly think it's very good.

I'm drinking Dalwhinnie 15 now. It's one of the two single malts I own (Glenlivet 12 is the obligatory other).

Where did you stay? What are your favorite parts of Scotland?

My mom is from Scotland and moved here in her 20's. I've spent a total of 4 complete summers in Scotland growing up (1 as an infant so really 3) as my mom is terrified of flying so we would go as soon as school was out and come home a few days before school began every 4 years. That was back when flights were beyond expensive but we would stay with family so that helped. We stayed on the Edinburgh side in a town called Gullane which is most notably known for being the home of Muirfield.

I did a M.Litt (masters) at St. Andrews. I really, really like Edinburgh, is what I would say. Though I think the coastline up by St. Andrews is gorgeous. I didn't do a ton of traveling around Scotland itself (spent a lot of time down in London, and have been to the Continent a couple of times).

Yes, it's very good. The wood they age it in is crazy stuff. So dense it stops a bullet. Saw the vats on the tour a month ago.

Hunderdon is distributing it and they cover all of NJ. Anywhere that has Founders or Oskars Blues should have it. Only a 3 case limit per store so far. Kegs will start going out to bars next week.

The rest of their beers are ok, but nothing I'd search out. Jai-Alai on the other hand has always been my favorite beer. I'd probably take it over a Heady Topper.

Their stouts are excellent too, led by Hunahpu. They're very much in the mold of what leading craft brewers were five years ago. A big, bold, west cost IPA and a few variants on a RIS, plus smatterings of other more traditional offerings.

Also overrated, imo.

Will have to try their stouts at some point, I guess.

I've seen that a few times, but its been $15+ bucks for a 12 oz bottle. Dogfish is starting to price themselves out of my price range.
