Christmas sorted then.

Brilliant

cheers ops I got it for £13.80 , I had the £6 promo last time when I bought the gift card

Still 20 notes in ASDA if you have one and don't want to wait in for delivery.

Nothing wrong with Black Label neat or with a drop of water. Double Black not a fan of though. Have some heat

Always keep a bottle of this in the house for when I'm in the doghouse with the missus.

Never got why people get a half decent whiskey or cognac or any spirit really only to desecrate it with fizzy sugar, might as well stick to alcopops

Not the best whiskey? This is an excellent whiskey, it's highly rated by many enthusiasts

Because a cheap spirit and a bottle of pop is much cheaper than a similar tasting alcopop?, plus you can then control the strength so its not weak as piss. Also no alcopop on the planet tastes as nice as even a extremely cheap bourbon with coke (IMO anyway). Makes no sense to put pop in any decent spirit though I agree there.

BTW ASDA is doing this same Scotch for £20 in case anyone doesn't have Prime and wants some Black Label.

I'd rather not drink a spirit than have to mask its scratchy quality with fizzy sugar though there's no accounting for taste I suppose in my opinion of course

But anyway let's talk about the savages with no class who would mix say a generous measure of Martell Medallion or even more criminally XO(my preferred tipple when flush) with a can of pepsi khazi like they would with sewer standard three barrels like what the fxxx is that all about but them people are out there and invariably are the very types who wouldn't just stop there, they'd go the whole hog in butchering such a heavenly creation by throwing some ice cubes in there too!

I absolutely despise all those septic whiskies, bourbons or whatever you want to call them but there's still always a bottle of Jack D single barrel in stock for those who visit who like that kind of thing. Luckily nobody that's ever had one has asked for a fizzy sugar mixer with it because abrupt responses can cause offence and that's what they'd get if they did we got some of that Jim Beam apple whatever it is in the cabinet for Tizer drinkers that pop round

Some people just want a cheap drink that tastes ok to them, what you'd do doesn't change that... You said you didn't understand why someone would put pop in a spirit rather than just drinking an alcopop, so I explained why.

Anyway personally I like a good Scotch or Bourbon and wouldn't add anything to it. But I do buy cheap Bourbon to have with coke, because it tastes fucking lovely mixed, simple as that.

+1 Although I have historically been known to enjoy a southern comfort and lemonde if I'm drinking a real whisky the only thing that goes in the glass with it is a single ice cube (the frozen water kind not the rapper)

Cola would make paint stripper taste nice if you like that sort of thing I suppose which makes me stand by my alcopop comparison all the more.

Speaking from personal experience I would put it out there that three barrels is more akin white spirit than it is cognac not even a tanker's full payload of fizzy sugar could disguise it's minging cheap taste nor neutralise it's world class acid inducing properties.

If you like proper whiskey/bourbon I can't for the life of me get my nut round how/why you also like cheap rubbish too I'm not prepared to neck Fosters, Stella or any of them other cheap tut lagers either. I am no way an aficionado yet I'd rather not drink anything than make do with mass produced inferior quality, if that makes me an alcofascist so be it.

No idea what that tastes like because I just never fancied mixing anything to spirits but as far as I can remember of the one time I tried Southern Comfort it was uncomfortably sweet already.

The only 'sweet' I have ever done with any alcohol is a splash of blackcurrant in the occasional snakebite I have been known to indulge in whilst in a licensed premises

Why not just let people enjoy their drink the way they see fit? To each his own bud.
I'd drink both cheap and expensive whiskey, depending on the people i'm. If they can only afford the cheaper ones, so be it.

There's a lot more to life than shooting down so-called idiots who, in your opinion, shouldn't mix whiskey with fizzy sugar and all that malarkey.

Without banging my head against the wall continuously I just can't see how you can 'love' a specific spirit if you mix it with anything but I'm going round in circles so let us just leave it at that.

Picture sums you up; you're a stereotypical snob.

Why would my enjoyment of one drink have any impact on my enjoyment of another? I can enjoy a nice glass of Wild Turkey Rare Breed straight and on another occasion enjoy a Jim Beam with coke. The coke isn't there to hide anything, its there to mix with the bourbon and change the taste to bourbon and coke, a different drink in and of itself.

I don't know what Three Barrels with any soft drink tastes like, but if someone likes that taste then great, drink it. Glad to say I can enjoy a wide range of drinks including a standard pint of lager on occasion. You seem to have a strange almost snobbish attitude to alcohol, which it appears you revel in. Fine but most people don't take it that seriously and as always personal tastes vary.

BTW your assertion on alcopops, as I already explained, doesn't make sense. Like I said the reasons why someone may choose to drink a spirit with a soft drink rather than a alcopop are numerous and quite valid. From price, to variety (might not be a alcopop that tastes the same as a particular mix) to being able to choose your own strength depending on what you fancy at the time. To say that "if you drink spirits with soft drinks you might as well just drink alcopops instead" just sounds like you're trying to be dismissive and really didn't think through the comment to be honest.

Nobody who likes cognac enjoys three barrels because it's beyond the boundary of last resort, cheap n nasty stuff that provides little or no pleasure when consumed by the unfortunates consuming it.

I had a shot of this ridiculously priced designer gin from Canada the other night, even the barman seemed rather surprised when I asked for it straight. I thought a couple of ice cubes and a slice of lime would be plenty enough to mix with such a fine expensive tipple, alas it was filth but I don't regret trying it because I now know I won't ever be able to enjoy it because it was so minging without a mixer.

I just don't get mixing spirits like there's bundles of people who don't get drinking them neat/straight. No matter how much you talk about the drinker controlling the alcohol content by mixing fizzy sugar with a spirit makes it nothing like an alcopop I can't and won't have it.

Because each person has the right to enjoy their drink they way they want to. It may not conform to your "standards" but it doesn't make it wrong.

Yes i get it, you're a hardcore, old school, purist. Crystal clear. You want to enjoy drinks properly.

It's not about right and wrong. It's about choice. You choose to be pure. Some choose not to be. If it's wrong in your book then it's wrong. But remember that's just your book - and you are not the bastion of knowledge, drink wise.

Whatever suits a person, then that's what it is. They want to get sloshed in the worse of ways, then hey, have fun and deal with the toilet and hangover in the morning! :-) You want it neat, straight up, room temp, etc, then yeah so be it as well.

It's all about choice. Don't choose for them by imposing your standards, and making others feel that if not done your way, then it's wrong.
