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.
Same with an Old Fashioned. My dad's side of the family were traditionally Rye drinkers, and as a Canadian I've always felt pride in drinking it. I'm sure the constant exposure of Canadian Club on Mad Men doesn't hurt either in terms of Rye sales.
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.
