Sometimes nothing is better than sitting down to play a game with a nice tumbler of premium whiskey. What is your favorite brand of whiskey? Put brand and any other additional info up here. The more info the more likely someone will find it and try it.

Mine is the Thomas H Handy Rye from Buffalo Trace Distillery. Sells at about $50-$60

Not sure if this is sold in Kansas, cant find any at the local stores, but a friend who came into town to visit brought this bottle over half full and we finished it off with some street fighter.

Wait, is it socially acceptable to play games and drink by yourself?

Because some whiskey might make some of this grinding in Persona 3 go by faster so I can get back to the good stuff.

I started almost exclusively drinking premium vodkas straight the last year or two (Though I do often indulge in a whiskey sour, which would be my favorite drink. It's bitter, but kinda sweet. Just like me!) I just really enjoy the clean taste of it and I'm less prone to hangovers and getting too drunk with straightGrey Goose or Stolichnaya.

But looking at my liqour cabinet all I see is a 2/3rds bottle of Maker's Mark and I have a bottle of some Glenfiddich at a friend of mines.

Oh yeah, a friend of mine got a bottle of Johnny Walker Blue for his birthday by his brother and daaaaaamn, that was tasty.

Got a fifth of Johnny Walker Blue Label sitting next to my TV, but I only occasionally drink from that. Normally I drink Bushmills (Black Bush is a good tasting, inexpensive whiskey) or Chivas Regal (if I'm want a scotch and soda, this is my go to)

I drink Canadian Club. Here's why

Cheap, yet has a decent taste far beyond the price range

I'm Canadian

Don Draper drinks it

It has a classy label.

@TheHumanDove: You know in the UK Canadian Club is pretty expensive and considered one of the premiums.

Whenever I visit america I drink a ton of the stuff.

I'm a scotch man myself, Glenfiddich 18 year is my go to. When it comes to whiskey I prefer bourbon over rye, which is funny because I live in Canada. Gentlemen Jack is my de facto whiskey, single barrel when its a special occasion.

Living in the area of the Scottish whisky trail has it's advantages. With the Glen Garioch distillery just down the road; I generally just grab it straight out the cask when they allow it. A bit of a shady practice, but great if you get a bottle full out of it. Age, percentage, and flavour vary.

For me it's a tossup between Dalwhinnie 15 Year Old and Oban 14 Year Old. Neat, of course. I have yet to try the Oban 18 Year Old.

My buddy had a bottle of Lagavulin which he was kind enough to allow me to try. That stuff is positively delicious. It's like liquid smoke.

My go to would be Buffalo Trace, a great bourbon thats very reasonably priced and widely available. But most of the time I'm constantly trying new or different bourbons and whiskeys, most recently I'v been enjoying a lot of rye whiskeys.

Lagavulin, Laphroaig, Dalwhinnie, any of those really. I do like the "liquid smoke" taste of the the peaty Islay whiskies, but sometimes you want something a bit milder & that's what Dalwhinnie is for.

But honestly I just like to try as many different types of whisky as I can because so much of it is just lovely.

Not got such strong feelings about US or Irish whiskey though. Nice enough but I guess whisky love is a side-effect of growing up near the whisky Mecca of Speyside

Some of the favorites are Glenfiddich, Laphroaig, Glenlivet, Tullamore Dew for my Irish Coffee. Ballantines for coke. Currently living across the street from a bar with the largest selection of whiskey in the country, so I'm trying different stuff in addition to my favorites.

Don't know about socially acceptable, it is, however, fucking awesome. Getting buzzed and playing Journey for the first time, was one of the best times I've had with a video game all year.

Yamazaki 12 Years, tastes great and makes me feel like Kazuma Kiryu. Not cheap or easy to find but definitely worth it.

Edit: Wish I hadn't seen this at work, have a craving for it now and it's agonizing counting down the hours, haha.

Tend to just stick with a variety of the single malt scotch brands out there, not too particular on any specific one as they're all pretty good.

For whiskey I prefer Knob Creek, Buffalo Trace or Elmer T. Lee (also make by Buffalo Trace). For whisky I'm partial to Laphroaig when I'm in the mood for big smoke/peat, Macallan if I'm not.

If you drink by yourself and play games to you care what society thinks of you? I'm all for boozin' it up solo and playing some games!

At the moment I'm working through the 21 y/o Chivas Regal jubilee colours, halfway through green ;) Not a primary whisky drinker tho, usually a beer for gaming guy.

I only bring out the whiskey when I am playing a long, campaign style game like Command and Conquer or an RPG.

But when I do - I have a bottle of this...

I like whiskey, but I'm not a huge drinker and don't have it too often. But when I do my favorite is Laphroaig. I find that as I get older I like hard alcohol less and less, oddly enough. Outside of certain times, I'm just never in the mood for liquor (like I would have been in college). Beer and wine I can generally always drink, though.

I just finished off my bottle of Johnny Walker Green last month.

I'm usually a gin and tonic kind of guy (hell, gin and anything really) but once the weather turns bearable, it's cigars and whisk(e)y time.

Has anyone tried that Jack Daniels whiskey with honey? I saw it in the store and was curious what that was all about and what it tasted like.

I have a bottle of Glenfiddich 12 year old in my cabinet. I usually have to mix it with something else like an amaretto or something so my throat doesn't dissolve away.
