    I wish they used Habuso. Its Japanese Whiskey with a highly venomous, native island viper to Okinawa. The snake is literally soaked into the whiskey and stays in the giant mason jar it usually comes in 😂

    I think she might be a little confused. Blended malts and blended grains blend malt whisky and grain whisky from other distilleries that used pot stills. You can't blanket state a blended scotch whisky is column distilled.

  • Mark Tudor

    When she goes like: “whisky is made of 3 ingredients” she flunked that “expert” right out of park. Wood is there too. Without the wood element there is no freakin whisky. Water, grain, yeast and wood (mostly oak) in most cases is what makes whisky whisky.

    • MisterGunpowder
      MisterGunpowder 12 days ago

      While fair to say wood is important, it is not an ingredient in the sense anyone uses the term. It's like arguing that metal is an ingredient in grilled cheese. It's necessary because you need the pan to cook it, but it's not an ingredient. It's a vessel.

  • leonious mumblescraper

    I’ve taken a few trips to Scotland. Toured the following distillers: Glengoyne, Glenlivet, and the Famous Grouse. Don’t seem to recall them mentioning spanking. Maybe she meant Irish whiskey?

  • kootify

    So which whisk(e)y is each of these?

  • DS Rai
    DS Rai 29 days ago +6

    My favourite whiskey has to Jameson’s Irish whiskey. Not the most expensive, but it goes down smoothly and not a harsh taste as you get with some. Anyone who likes whiskey and hasn’t tried it I would highly recommend it. It can be drunk straight, with ice or with coke and perfect for any occasion. London, uk

    • DS Rai

      Rockdude147 Thanks, I might give it a try.

    • Rockdude147
      Rockdude147 17 days ago

      If you like Jameson's, I would recommend the Jameson's Caskmates Irish Whiskey. It is sweeter than the original but nothing too over powering. Its almost like a hint of smooth chocolate carmel.

    • Dylan Schuette

    How do I find out what these were so I can try them? $50 is a more expensive bottle for me but I would go $200 if I could reasonably know what I was buying. Whiskey bar may be my best option and take along my Visa...😉
