Knappogue is a decent Irish Whiskey. It's got alot of fire which requires some water to help develop the flavor. I spent 27 dollars (2007)

Bushmills Black Bush is a great Irish Whiskey. This is my favorite Bushmills. You can really taste the Cherry Cask in this one. Very little fire and alot of flavor. This was a gift but I think the cost is about 30 dollars. Thanks Alan!!!

Dalmore 12 is an excellent Highland Scotch. It's a little peaty with a little fire. It's very good. The bottle that I have is from my Assistant Phil. Thanks Phil!! So a price on this bottle I don't have. I've heard that the DAlmore 15 is even better!!!!
McClelland's Islay is GREAT!!! If you want to spend a little bit change for some peaty goodness get this!! This is my everyday Scotch. You'll probable need to add some water because it does have some fire to it. I bought it for 24 dollars.

St George is a crazy Whiskey. It's distilled from a barley malt mash. Let me tell you it tastes like it! It's not to bad of a whiskey. I would recommend adding some water do to the fire effect of the AC. Let me tell you somethign else it tastes like it was made from Barley. Those of you that are beer drinkers and love beer should try this. I bought this at Big Red for 56 dollars (09).

This was a surprise. A French Whisky that is peaty and smooth just like a Scotch Whiskey. This Whisky has some fire to it. My assistant has added some water and seems to be enjoying it more. i can see why. It allows the flavor to develop. It's smokey with some oak and something sweet. I bought it St. Malo and spent 25 Euros for this. Good luck trying to find it in the states.
Holy Peaty!!!! This is an awesome Islay. Very peaty. The nose will overwhelm you with the peaty goodness. The flavor is PEAT and a smooth/smokey portion and then some fire deep down in your gut. Adding water helps reduce the smoke and peat flavor. I got this Scotch as a recommendation from my cousin. I got it at Big Red for 90 dollars (2009).
This Scotch is the oldest scotch that I own. I got this Scotch on a cruise in the Carri bean. This Scotch has more fire in it than I would have thought and Phil thinks this as well. With out water the Scotch is smooth with a slight sweetness and ends with some fire in your belly. This 30 year old Scotch is good. When we added water it definitely opens up this Scotch. It opens up the sweetness of maybe honey in the flavor. The nose on it is not as AC vaporish as a result of the water. When I bought this Scotch it was 250 dollars on the cruise and in the states it was 400 dollars
The Lowland Scotch that I've to date (05-23-09). It's got some fire to it that is for sure. it would be good to drink on a cold winters day. Adding a splash water opened up the nose on and flavor and nuetralize the AC vapor which allowed the flavor to come through. After adding the water I can tell there is a charcoal flavor that i can only say is Lowland. Phil isn't sure what to make of the flavor.
An awesome Scotch. It is definitely the Nectar of the Scotches. For this Scotch my assistant Phil has joined me. This Scotch is sweet and smooth. Very Little fire at all. I don't think any water is needed for this Scotch. Actually adding water I think hurts the flavor. Phil seconds this.

If you like the peatness of a bog you'll love this stuff. Peaty as hell and smooth as a babies bottom.
When i tasted it with my assistant Phil we discovered that it does it has a Earthy taste along with an iodine after taste. This bottle was given to me as a gift from my father in-law so im not sure about the cost.
Is awesome!! It's the only Irish Whiskey that I know of that is peated. If you see it buy it!!! I bought this in 2006 and spent 42 dollars. In 2009 I've seen it priced at 82 dollars. I wish I still had that bottle I bought in 2006.
