What is the smoothest whiskey for sippin' straight up? With a couple of ice cubes in the glass?

Any ol' rotgut will do with coke or juices, but we're talkin' the straight stuff here. What do you think?

Irish?
I like Michael Collins single malt.

Scotch?
I like the 21 year old Glenfiddich, but there are many others depending on your taste.

American?

when I stopped drinking the hard stuff years ago I was drinking Crown Royal......

have about 5 unopened bottles upstairs from my many trips to Canada.......

years before that I went throught the single malt phase but these days its good beer and good wine with an occasional margarita, manhattan or gin and tonic......

I like Tullamore better than either Jameson or Bushmill.

Tonight, I am just finishing off a bottle of Aberlour single Speyside malt

I've found Elijah Craig (Bourbon) to be smoothly palatable when taken neat.

But if it's sipping you want, why not sip on a fine brandy?

To be brutally honest, ever since Uncle Jack and I got into a vicious argument almost 30 years ago (that I lost miserably, I might add), I cannot tolerate the aroma of him or his bretheren anymore; much less drink it. :D

I had that same argument with Cousin Harper, and learned that he, and his brethren demand a great deal respect, and if it's not given they will make you pay.;)

When a city boy friend of mine suggested that any city boy can outdrink any country boy I gladly proceeded to prove him wrong, and that's when I learned that my self respect exceeded my respect for liquor, and that needed to change.

I'm definitely more a tequila and/or gin man. Give me some Bombay Sapphire, a bottle of Schweppe's tonic water and a lime and I'm a happy man.
