You should try Lagavulin as well. Richer and heavier, but all the Islay and Jura whiskies have that peat-smoke taste.
I have a bottle of Bowmore at home which I will be attacking at Christmas.
Lagavulin, I think I tried at my brother's house. Very heavy, like medicine almost? Good stuff.

Ever been to Islay, ibis? Nice place for a holiday, I'd say.
I've been to Oban which I enjoyed.
Oban is a good single malt for beginners. If you are new to whisky, try Oban.

In alkmaar where i live now there is a scots restuarant with a wiskey from all approx 750 distilleries. I really like the Islay brands. Haggis is good too.

In my fridge tonight: 2 kegs of Amstel and Heiniken pils, Four beers from IJ brewery, Trappest Rochefort 10 (*6) , Brigand IPA, Guiness special extra stout (*3), Tongelero dubbel (*2), Wheinstephaner weiss, Kriek boon and tongerlo dubble + homemade cream liqueur. Party time.

Bollinger also has a fantastic website check it out. Also have some french stuff. Remy Martain Xo Cognac though may save that for much later.

Shame. What I love most about it is the kind of drunk it gets you, extremely happy and carefree while not too crazy. I'm getting together with a group of friends next week and we're going to get started by polishing off 2 bottles of this stuff and going from there. In my experience, 2 bottles of Jager = good night guaranteed.

That said, if you do actually throw up after drinking loads of it (not just a few shots), your vomit is black...

Also, I still haven't tried Bushmills yet, I keep meaning to. Next time I'm out I'll pick some up. Can you get it in smaller sized bottles?

Ah Cactus, too old...

Get yourself a shot glass of that and a pint glass of red bull energy drink. Drop the shot glass into the red bull and gulp the whole lot down. It is called a Jaegerbomb.

At my time of life, it would probably finish me off. I'll stick to the Scotch.

Any drinks out there people tend to stay away from at all costs (apart from johnfas and Jager)? I don't like to drink vodka as, even though it's a cheap way to get absolutely pissed, I tend to get very rowdy on it and sometimes do things I am later embarrassed about. I have even become slightly aggressive after consuming much vodka, which is not me at all.

I have also ruined peach schnapps for myself after getting absolutely destroyed on it one night at a house party (I was drinking it straight as part of a drinking game; which, by the way, should only ever be played with beer). As well as having to clean up the mess the next morning (and borrow a friend's shirt), I now feel violently nauseous at the smell or taste of peach, schnapps or otherwise.

Your body may be trying to tell you something evercloserunion - I've just been reading in the Indo about people with final stage (i.e. incurable and terminal) liver disease at the age of 18. It used to be something that happened to people in their 50s. pale

Killer stuff! I used to drink this when I lived in Germany. That and Underberg. Underberg even more lethal because under the small bottles of the stuff you get in pubs, there is a number between 1 and 50. If you were in a round, every so often, an equivalent number of small bottles of Underberg would appear. They'd be drunk and everyone looked to the underside of the bottle. The person with the highest number on his Underberg bottle had to buy the next round. Jägermeister is good but my fonder, if foggier, memories are of Underberg.
