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
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).
