Never had any of it before. Close out at the liquor store so I figured now was the time to try them.

With coke?
With Dr. Pepper?

Go

Two to three fingers in an Old Fashioned type tumbler. You are allowed one ice cube (can really bring out the aromatics).

Sip sensibly. Enjoy.

Scotch is straight or with ice. Normally not mixed with anything.

Glass glass, not a plastic cup. mmkay?

Over a small amount of ice cubes or even better, whiskey stones. Don't mix it with anything unless you are a chick.

A single ice cube in a glass. What did you pay for that?

$60. It was a $99 Christmas special. Each bottle is 200mL.
Link Posted: 1/17/2015 3:48:36 PM EST
four nights worth of drunk. How much did those four bottles set you back?
Link Posted: 1/17/2015 3:48:40 PM EST
waterback. Swirl some water in the glass and pour it out. you only need a drop or two of water.

then fill with whiskey
Link Posted: 1/17/2015 3:49:00 PM EST
open top, place bottle to mouth, toss back and enjoy..


repeat if necessary..


glasses just slow things down ..

I purchased one here in WA for 99 plus taxes.

I didn't think they tasted like they were anything special.

that's basically cooking whisky. Cookies, pecan pies, chocolate cakes... pretty good score!

Straight, one ice cube.

Mixers are used to cut the nasty taste of cheap booze.
Link Posted: 1/17/2015 3:53:28 PM EST
Straight, like a real man. And act like it tastes good, even when deep down you know it's disgusting. Anything less makes you less of a man!
Link Posted: 1/17/2015 3:53:42 PM EST
Why are you all suggesting one ice cube? A single ice cube dilutes faster than having a few ice cubes.

And this maniacal devotion to avoiding dilution is silly anyways. Sometimes removing a bit of burn lets you taste it better.

Blue label is over hyped. It would be a decent buy at about $90.
Link Posted: 1/17/2015 3:54:03 PM EST
Neat, and no junk in it.
Link Posted: 1/17/2015 3:54:59 PM EST
Start off my Chugging down the first bottle of Black in less than 30 seconds.

Chase it with a 22 oz FourLoco Watermelon.

Wait 1/2 hour. Chug the second bottle of Platinum in less than 30 seconds.

Chase it with a shot of 1800 Tequila.


Repeat with the last two bottles until intoxicated.

Then get on ARcom and start posting your thoughts.

Scotch is spelled W-H-I-S-K-Y.

Look at the label.

On the rocks is the only way to drink the good stuff. All Johnny Walker is blended whisky. If you want the REALLY good stuff, try some good single malt. It's mo bettah.

OP is trolling. In NH you got about $600 worth of whiskey.
Please tell me you're not gonna mix blue label with soda!
Give it to some one who would enjoy it as a gift.

"Aromatics"? All I ever seem to taste is the yeast and some barrel.

Damn my taste buds!

Begin with a glass, a few ice cubes, and splash water; adjust splashes till you find a satisfying flavor. Eventually you might enjoy it straight or with ice Cheers
Link Posted: 1/17/2015 4:05:29 PM EST
Good mixed with Diet Coke.

Start with the blue stuff until you get used to the taste.
Link Posted: 1/17/2015 4:05:40 PM EST


I know OP's is a blend but try with a Highland single malt some time.

If you're just starting out, cut with a little good quality seltzer water and adjust to taste.

Don't overdo it -- it carries its own built-in punishment.

IMO incredibly overrated...... get yourself one of those round ice molds, that will cool it down and release the aromatics without diluting it too much

Per Johnny Walker's own tasting event, either is acceptable. Although they were making cocktails with the platinum.

Feel free to drink the black label mixed if you must. All others straight but instead of ice use frozen grapes as to not water down the whiskey too much. Usually the condensation from the outside of the frozen grapes is enough water.
