Bushmills is good stuff.

I bought a bottle of Old Bushmill once.

And later that night I met my future exwife.

Not saying there's a connection or anything but that's also the last bottle of Old Bushmills I've ever had too.

Bushmills straight and a beer.

To be honest, I do it wrong by having a fizzy yellow beer along with it. Yes, it's a crime, but this way the higher water content and lower 12 course dinner content as compared to Guiness lets me stay upright quite a bit longer.

Jamesons will work in a pinch if I happen to be outta Bushmills. But Bushmills is way shmooder

Well as long as it is not Jim Bean or something!

Gelignite Cocktail

Double shoot of Bushmills (I'm a purist) in a Pint of Guinness.

Jameson's.
Link Posted: 10/16/2008 6:23:19 PM EST
I'll have to respectfully disagree with Soylent.

I'm a long time Bushmills drinker and I think that Jameson is smoother.
The Jameson also has a hint of smokeyness to it. (Not approving or disapproving, just my observation)

As to which Bushmills is the best, I think that would have to be Black Bush.

I didn't find the 10 year old single malt to be as good as the Black Bush, but it's been quite some time since I've bought any single malt.

For my money I always felt that standard Bushmills was the ticket.

It's a HIghland single malt Scotch. It spends it's first 8 years in a White Oak cask, and then spends another 4 years in a Saunternes cask. Main influences are vanilla, honey and lemon.

Goes well with Connecticut style cigars.

Oh, and it eats Macallen's breakfast, lunch, and dinner.

Don't get me wrong, I *do* like Jamesons. It's a personal taste thing though between Jamesons and Bushmills as far as I can tell. I know quite a few folk that swear Jamesons is the smoother one. I know a few others that agree with me that it's Bushmills.

The thing I like about them is that they lack the heavy aftertaste of a Scotch. Yes, I know it has to be "The Good Stuff" with Scotch or you've done it wrong. I do like "The Good Stuff" on occasion, but even then I don't care very much for the Smoky, peat aftertaste.

However you like your drink, be a man and drink it well!

Not that anyone cares about my opinion, but I have never understood why in the hell anyone would ruin good beer or whiskey by mixing them together or mixing them with anything else. When I see people drink "black and tans" and shit like that I think to myself that they might as well piss in a pint of Guiness.
Both are great.
Mixed, they are ruined.

Now this man has taste. Franziskaner is 2nd in my mind only to Augustiner which I can't find in the states. So Franziskaner it is for me as well.

2nd ETA: Just for the fuk of it.

So how do you pronounce it so you don't sound like a retard? Sounds good.

I'll have to try Bushmills Black. I'm just developling a taste for whiskey. I've found avefter the first 2 they are all REALLY good

Since a bunch of whiskey (and whisky) drinkers are around I will espouse the virtues of my latest poison.

Rye whiskey.
Good shit. Smooth with a peppery aftertaste.
I'd put Old Overholt up against Irish Whiskey any day. It's also $10 less per fifth.
Give it a try sometime.

I actually have tried Old Overholt

I did like it some, but at the time (it's been almost twenty years ago now) not enough to buy it again. I almost picked up some Rye again my last trip to the candy store. I'll put that down on my "To Do" list.

Also, I do agree with the poster that says mixing ruins the drink. I don't pour my drinks together. I just use the beer as something to spi at between shots of Whiskey. If that's still too mixed for your taste, you're not alone. But I like it that way, and really that's all that counts.

I disagree. I PREFER Guinness straight up. I could drink that all day long I never tire of it. I like it Ice cold or Room Temp. It is my drink of choice. If McCain gets in, I'm getting a keg setup in the house. If Obama gets in I;m buyiing mrore gun stuff. Any way no more election crap. But I don't mind mixing some of the greatest drinks ever invented!

I LOVE car bombs. Have to try some Gellignite Cocktails. But I do like to mix it up a bit.

I prefer to drink the drinks straight when alone but if partying nothing beats a Car Bomb!

But alas I am out of Baileys and Guinness. So it is only Bushmills tonight and that is foing fast!

One thing that always struck me about Bushmills was that the bottles were designed by a fucking genius.

Pack the most whiskey into the smallest possible space.

If I was going to smuggle a case or two of whiskey in my suitcase it would have to be Bushmills.

Aren't Bushmills and Jameson now owned by the same overlords.

Next topic: Beamish vs. Murphys vs. Guinness.

Oh, and guys across the pond, please do chime in.
