    Re: George Dickel

    I really like the Dickel, but around 45-50€ per bottle, I think it is too expensive.

    That is terrible. Are all American Whiskies that expensive? Dickel is one of the most reasonably prices whiskies here in the States.

    No. You get usually good deals. Like a bottle of OGD is around 16 €, Evan Williams around 19€. Don't know why Dickel is so expensive. Probably because no one buys it.

    Never tried it. I don't like Jack at all, so I just naturally figured they were pretty similar.

    #12 is now on my list. I have heard good things about their Rye too.

    Oh, and peated scotch tastes like band-aids to me. Never cared for JW Black all that much for that reason.

    There are a lot of very good scotches out there that have little or no peat flavor in them.

    YES! I'm so glad to see someone else say that too. I hear about the smoky taste, but all i get is band-aids. My buddies tell me to just give it time and I'll develop the palate for peated whisky. Till then that bottle of Laphroaig scotch will just sit on my shelf.

    Peat flavor in scotch whisky (not all of them have it) is just one of those accidents of history that is now done intentionally in order to maintain a flavor profile. No reason why we should have to train ourselves to like it through.

    I tried for probably a couple years to like scotch, and I had myself fooled for a while, but then I was honest with myself: bourbon is infinitely better. I'll never go back.

    I'm with you. I much prefer bourbon now, but there are some I still enjoy, like J&B and Balvenie, and a couple of others, once in a while. I have to be in the mood. Same with gin.

    With bourbon, or rye, it doesn't matter, it's always good.

    That should read.... "I like bourbon infinitely better."

    "Better" is a very subjective term. I would guess there are many whisk(e)y fans that feel the opposite way you do. Just sayin'.
