Discussing :: Whisky Is Like A Magic Word

“Whisky is like a magic word, whenever uttered people’s eyes light up and smiles appear…” The week is finally over, time to kick back, slide off your shoes and do something truly relaxing. Originally distilled for its medicinal properties, whisky is not just a drink – it is an experience. It has the power to change people’s mood, their outlook on life and perception of existence… Whisky is a social beast that brings people together… To drink whisky after dinner is a centuries old tradition, to retire to the ‘Den’ and sip the ‘water of life’.

I enjoy a sip of the 'water of life' as much as the next person. I have a few bottles of single malt at home, but when I go to town, to keep the price down, I drink CC with a touch of dry. I mentioned this in a whiskey shop the other day and the man behind the counter preceded to tell me that I was not a REAL whiskey drinker... Has Canadian Club lost its class and become just another standard spirit???


Judging by the fact that most university students will opt for Johny Red or CC, with a mixer (dry or coke)... I'm sorry to say yes, I think it has dropped a little. (I talk from experience, and being there).

As for favorite types, I'd say that Isle of Jura is what I reach for the most.
Though I get the feeling that it will soon to smokier, peatier stuff soon.

I had the good fortune to visit a Whiskey Distillery near Balmoral (scotland) which was by appointment, the official whiskey suppliers for the Royal family. Despite being an assault on all the senses (especially the nose)...did you know that Whiskey is essentially colourless and that the colour comes from the (port?) barrels where the whiskey is distilled over many years. The colour and taste, are formed from the port which leeches ever so slowly over time, from the wood in the barrel.

I admit my favourite drink is whiskey, at dinners with work mate theres a discussion about which wine we should have, red. wine, sav, pinot. I try to look like I care. But my heart lies with good whiskey. The one on offer is enough to make me melt. I could give it to my old man or maybe just save him the bottle
