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.

Actually, thanks to this thread, I'll be grabbing a bottle on the way home.
Ended up getting something called Tom Sims, not half bourbon for the price. Remembered what I got for the wedding, Aberlour, unbelievable single malt for the price

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.
It's Rye by Canadian standards, but yes the US and Canada have different requirements on what can and cannot be called Rye.
Canadian Club does contain Rye, or at least the original formulation did. It uses multiple grain sources.
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.

Sweetness... in a man

Okay, so how does/can a man express sweetness, and in a manly way?The self improvement movement seems mostly to focus on being an alpha/confident/manly male. All good qualities, but there isn't much mention of expressing your softer side.One of the sweetest men I know is my Dad. But perhaps I think he's sweet because I'm his son... other than that, one of my closest friends is a sweet bloke. The ladies think he's sweet, but again, what is it that makes him come across like this?I guess I'm…See More
