I have had two bottles of a brand of Whiskey called "Wild Turkey Rare Breed". I cannot stand to do more than 4 or 5 shots. The taste is so horrible that each shot makes my face jerk and make me feel as if I am going to throw up. The aroma itself is enough to make me cringe.

To see if this was a normal reaction, I did a quick google search and to my surprise everyone was saying how nice it tasted!!???? They said how they savored the flavor. Me, I have to wash it down fast or else I will PUKE. How can these people do this?


Give me some tips, I have a bottle next to me with a shot glass. Here we go .

First you need good whiskey not the shit that the homeless is drinking. The good stuff is pretty smooth.

Try Drambuie. Nice n smooth.

had some of the wild turkey for thanksgiving. it is rough, but it works.

if you want good tasting whiskey, try some of Philips' Vanilla Whiskey. darn good shit, especially mixed with coke.

I think it's one of those things, either you love it or hate it.

Crown was the first whiskey that I didn't choke on. But then again, the only alcohol that I dont choke on is 100yr old Tequilla.

Um, yum? If you don't like it, send it to me.

$40? Try $150-200 a bottle for the truly good Irish stuff.

Whiskey professional to the rescue.

Take a swig of pop or water etc. and hold it in you mouth.

Take your shot down and swallow both at the same time.

You could drink gasoline this way and not flinch.

I have mixed it with Pepsi, but the flavor of the Whiskey (Bourben) was so strong that it overpowered the soda and made the whole drink like a giant shot glass of Whiskey.

Makers Mark is pretty smooth. Try some.

First, you have to remember, that you don't actually drink whisky for the taste. You drink for its affect and its smoothness.

Second, you can open up the spirit with a bit of spring water. This will get some of the aromas out into your palate.

Third, try different ones. The Irish invented the stuff, and I like Jameson. The Scots have 4 major geographical areas for Scotch. I like Laphroig 15, Glen Morangie 18, Lagavulin 16, wait a minute....................................

I just counted two bottles of Lagavulin 16. I'll talk to you guys later.

... Yes ma'am!

... Having a Knob Creek drink right now myself - Just saw my g/f off to Italy to visit her mom for the holidays.

... This helps ease the minor heartache I'm feeling now.

Whiskey is a woman's drink. Get yourself a nice bottle of Glenmorangie or Aberlour scotch, now thats a man's drink.
Link Posted: 12/17/2005 7:32:21 PM EDT
No offense, but it sounds as if you aren't a veteran drinker...

Go slower. Instead of shots, try a little ice with it and sip. You may find that you prefer something milder like a Canadian blend.

It's definitely an aquired taste. I started out on sour mash, but over the years my palate has decided that it prefers the milder blends.
Link Posted: 12/17/2005 7:33:12 PM EDT
You drink whiskey for the taste? How quaint.
Link Posted: 12/17/2005 7:33:13 PM EDT
Bushmills 1608 if you can find it. Not the white label Bushmills or Black Bush, but 1608. Runs about 70 bucks a bottle and makes Crown Royal taste like recycled Jim Beam...

Absolutley none taken at all. The fact that I had to ask about drinking shows that I have no clue as to what I am doing. I would really like advice though.

I don't care for it at all and my roommate always has decent stuff on hand. I prefer gin or vodka any day.

You sip good whiskey.


You're not supposed to drink bad whiskey.
Link Posted: 12/17/2005 7:36:11 PM EDT
If you don't like the taste, don't drink it. How hard is that?

I drink Wild Turkey exclusively. No water, no coke, just two cubes of ice. It suits me but it aint for everybody.

Rare Breed can be a bit harsh.

When I did drink it, I liked 101. Harsh, but a good aftertaste.

Now I can't even stomach the smell of the stuff. And I've got a ton of the stuff in the cabinet. Last nip I had was some Glenlivet back in Jan. Barely got it down.

Man is not meant to drink a bottle of Bushmills in one sitting.

Drinking shots isn't the way to go. Put about 4 ice cubes in a glass and pour in about two shot glasses worth. Let it sit there a few minutes and take a little tug on it. That glass should last 30 minutes. Good whisky is made to be savored. Wild Turkey has a distinctive taste I never warmed up to. Try some Weller, Old Grand Dad, or Makers Mark. Grand Dad is way under rated.

There is nothing like sipping on good whiskey and smoking a good cigar.
Link Posted: 12/17/2005 8:01:12 PM EDT
Rare Breed just does not have the taste that Russel's Reserve has and is aged less. Try Russel's Wild Turkey. It still has a bit of a bite but like the others said it is a sippin whiskey not Root Beer. If you want to do shots then just get some Jack... No offense Just my Opinion - course I like a little lightnin too. I don't care who you are but a good lightnin is smooooooth
Link Posted: 12/17/2005 8:03:27 PM EDT
Single malt scotch whiskey is the way to go. Macallan, Talkisker are all pretty nice. Its interesting they come in more grades then school.

Scotch isn't whiskey its WHISKY

I was about to say, you could get three of those bottles for one of the Middleton's bottles I bought.

You're not ruining it with water or ice or anything, are you?

And that sums it up... They are both an aquired taste.
Folks tend to "do a shot" of whiskey or other hard liquors.
But, the real enjoyment comes not in drinking a large amount,
but in letting just a small amount wash over your tastebuds,
and "exploring" the flavors and aromas.
It works for wine.
It works for bourbon.
It works for cigars.
It sounds gay, but it is just "how it's done."

I grew up drinking Canadian whiskey, In Canada it is called Rhy Not whiskey If you order a whiskey 7 the bartender would look at you funny and say oh your a yankee huh Here try this it is what i think you want and would reach for some Jack, Most of the Americans i grew up with still make a run over the border to buy the rhy whiskey, It is some of the best out there I like Seagram's 83 or 7&7 Or to beat all is Gibson Fineest, 18 year old stock It all cost about 50.00 per bottle and once you drink it you will really enjoy a nice mixed drink or even straight shots of it. I think i may have to go have a bump, Hmm just maybe.

Yup you want it neat. Maybe a cube or two but thats it.
Link Posted: 12/17/2005 8:32:27 PM EDT
Leave the shots for the old westerns. Sip your whisky! Although, I have shot Jack Daniels. I like Makers Mark and Knob Creek. I find Knob Creek to be much smoother though.

Nothing better than a good whisky and a cigar +1 (But I had to give up on the cigars recently)

Jameson FTW!


not too bad price wise, and very easy to drink


I also like Makers Mark, Bushmills, the Johnny Walkers, and the old standby Jack Daniels.



I love enjoying a nice cigar with some good whiskey.
