    I don't know, sounds like a vodka drinker to me. Not that there's anything wrong with that...

    Ohhhhh.......that's the expensive version of this style isn't it? It must be pretty darn good for you to drop that sum. I've seen nothing but good reviews about this one.

    I can see how it could be polarizing but it hits all the right notes for me in a way no other whisky has - as usual, try it yourself first as my palate could be totally jacked up

    Knowing me, I'll probably like it. Time to search for this one at the local whiskey bars.

    Re: What "Other American Whisky" are you drinking?

    Charbay R5 is definitely one I want to try. I really like IPAs and Charbay is basically a distilled IPA. On the other hand I got a bottle of Leviathan III last week as it sounded really interesting and I really like Islay Scotches. It is weird though, I really don't like it that much. Funny thing is it tastes extremely similar to my Wasmund's unaged single malt that has been sitting on a ton of oak chips for two months. Maybe the apple and cherry wood smoke impart a similar flavor to Canadian peat smoke, or maybe that's just what young single malt whisky tastes like. I think I'll stick with my Islay Scotches over those two. And while Charbay R5 will cost me about as much as Lagavulin 16, it's something I figure I should try at least once in my life. As for Release III forget it. If I'm dropping that kind of money I'll get an Octomore 10...or 5 bottles of Lagavulin.
