Nice story, wem- thanks. I've never tried Wild Turkey- I've never seen it here, although they have Jim Beam and Johnnie Walker.

At the moment, I'm drinking Laphoaig. Ah.

Nice try, Kate.

What - no English ale ! You can get this in bottles, but it's best savoured, in all its hoppy glory, hand pulled from the cask, cellar cool, no added gas, just natural fermentation, and a nice creamy head, in a cosy Yorkshire pub! it comes about 10 miles from the brewery to my local, and goes well with a steak and ale pie !

Maybe you can get English Ale somewhere in Vienna, but I don't know where. I was in Leeds a couple of times and enjoyed Black Sheep Ale.

And what can these lovely Euro beers do that a bottle of Bush and a liter of Makers Mark Bourbon cannot do, he asks.

E-lad - lots of stuff, you drink them in pubs, so get that whole social ritual, buying rounds, meeting people, finding new places that sell a particular brew, seeing how the landlord looks after and serves his beer (it's still a living product in the uk).

Anyway next drink story - my favourite scotch : A few years ago my father in law had given me a bottle of "Mackenzie Liqueur Whisky". I didn't like the sound of that, as I don't like sweet drinks. However a shortage of the real stuff one Saturday night drove me to try it - wow it was a rich whisky with chocolate and orange peel notes. Yummy. I went to my local specialist whisky shop

http://www.wineandwhisky.co.uk/

and asked them if they could track it down. No luck. They also told me that Liqueur Whisky was what distilleries called single malts, before there was an established market for single malt - most of these going into blends.



They'd never heard of the Mackenzie distillery, and the nearest they could get to my taste profile was something called The Dalmore Cigar Malt. Not cheap, but exceptionally good, and very similar indeed. To conclude - further investigation turned out that Dalmore is in fact the current name for MAckenzies. I thought that was a pretty good recommendation for the shop !
