I had a Bowmore 15 The Darkest the other night and it was very nice.
I've never had a bad whisky from Bowmore, but the Darkest might be my favorite of theirs. Good stuff.

Jameson is my everyday pour...smooth and nice...Dew a step up IMO. Just started trying different rye's...nice change of pace. Balvenie is one of my favorites- many to enjoy.

Very nice, Ken. Tullamore  Dew makes a killer whiskey sour.

I'm not a huge fan of the regular Tullamore, but their reserve is outstanding.

The Jameson 12 year is outstanding as well.

I've moved away from the non-reserves, unless its Red Breast or Green Spot.  But those are pricey bottles at their entry level.

EDIT:  Not to crap all over your selections.  I would certainly join you for a flight.  As long as I could have two ryes and skip the Scotch.

Hmm, I think I would have tasted in the exact opposite direction!

I'd go left to right for sure.

Decided tonight that Rowan's Creek isn't as slouchy as I first thought, pretty good stuff. Might open some Scotch soon...

Gonna have to try Aberlour 12 with a clean palate. Fruity aroma with a tequila aspect and a light flavor with a lingering hint of espresso. With a splash the flavor opens up a little. More experimenting to be done with this one methinks!

Wait, am I missing something?  Or do you guys also drink the Yellow Tail before the Caymus?

I go lightest flavor to strongest. Of course I would never buy Yellow Tail Cab anyway. ;)

Same here. Not that I generally drink that many different whiskey and quality levels in one sitting...although it has happened in a few tastings before.

Tried the Balvenie Caribbean Cask last night and it just didn't thrill me. At the bar they gave you little snacks and one was a small lemon cupcake and paired with that it was pretty darn stellar.

always interesting what seems to pair well with a whiskey. I love a chunk of 86% dark chocolate to nibble on as I sip.
