i first drank whisky a few months back when i was insomniac for 3 weeks and my body was 

breaking down, so i tried to find something that could make me sleep and voila! i came upon my 

dad's JW Premier and drank it, the taste at first was terrible but it slowly revealed its sweetness when 

i added ice and yea it is better than vodka. The whisky did made me sleepy and i slept like a baby 

that night, to tell you the truth it is one of the best sleep i've ever had. 

i got curious about whiskies so i wanted to know your opinions on it.

No such thing, my friend.

Quite apart from differing tastes, different whiskies suit different occasions. And by different whiskies, I'm including single malts, blends, bourbons. For example, a single malt Talisker is perfect as a pick me up after a long walk in winter, but it certainly wouldn't be my choice for an apéritif.

There's no single best whisky in the same way there's no single best car.
Whatever the man likes.
all of it?
Indeed! The Sazerac just isn't the same without it.
Yeah I noticed that. In the first couple of seasons he mostly drank Old Overholt but in seasons 3 & 4 it's been Canadian Club.
A bit, yes. But the canadian requirement doesn't actually require that rye be used, just that it have the characteristics of those things that do.

I recently had my first Sazerac.  It won't be my last!

I just started Drinking Whisky and find that the taste differs every time I drink. It gets better. I started with Glen Livet 15 year old.
Martin - if I may chime in here, Glenlivet is a nice entry level single malt scotch. Not particularly smokey, not particularly peaty, but a nice dram. If you want to dip your toes into the single malt world, I have found that the best one out there to start folks off on is Balvenie Doublewood 12 yr old. It spends some time in a cask used for American bourbon, and is finished in casks used for Spanish sherry (give a sweet finish).
the price tag is usually not justifiable if you're just looking for some whiskey

Well, yes, if you're just interested in brown liquid which is in the order of 40% alcohol by volume, the price of most whisky or whiskey is not justifiable.

If however you're after one of the most complex and rewarding drinks known to man, it's a different issue.

You could probably get ten bottles of this:


for the price of a single bottle of my favourite single malt, but if you did I certainly wouldn't trade you.
Hahaha!! I didn't even know Tesco made scotch!
Thats like asking whats the best beer or the best car, it really depends on what youre looking for. And you're never going to know unless you try a few. Even then, whisky is a family of alcohols, it's like saying SUV - there's everything from a Honda CRV to a hummer. Whisky includes things like scotch, bourbon, rye. Then every region does something special,

If you're new to the scene, I'd start on the cheaper side and maybe even with some blends to find out what you like and move on from there. I'd get a bottle of jack daniels, and a taster set of a good blend, a blend like Chivas or Johnnie Walker black, and a single malt like Macallan 12 or Glenlivet 12. Once you can start to get the full flavor of those, I'd recommend a sampler pack of any big brand. There's no use starting out with something expensive that you cant appreciate yet.
