No. Yellow spot isn't a mixer.

Johnnie Blue in the above scenario is also a VERY good choice.

Sure - you could use the back of a Van Gogh painting for your grocery list as well, doesn't mean you should. If you do, I have the right to judge you for having poor taste

Pappy is pretty damn overrated, more for show than go, so do as you please with it.

One of the best for the price. Bad part is it is difficult to find. My last 2 bottles came from trades and I still have some left. Good part is at roughly 130 proof there is more alcohol in the bottle than most bottles.

I think all bourbons should be sold at barrel proof, no reason for them to add water to the bottle, I can add what I want and as much as I want.

I actually prefer the Weller Antique to the Old Rip 10yr. Neither are bad, but certainly not worth their secondary prices. Hell, I wouldn't even pay the $80 MSRP for Old Rip a 2nd time - unless it was to flip it.

Haku vodka from Suntory. First vodka I've tried that's distilled from rice. Different in a good way, if you like sake (just a hint of--it's still vodka). Smooth, with a bit of charcoal. Worth a try at $30.

Decided to try some islay scotch over the holidays. Went with the ardbeg wee beastie... mainly because I've heard good thing about ardbeg, it was available and fairly inexpensive compared to other islays.

Was not disappointed. Will be trying out some others soon as I already drank the whole bottle.

The normal Ten year is a good next step, similar flavor profile and just a little smoother. Once you start going to other Islay distilleries you can get wildly different flavor profiles.

Laphroaig quarter cask is another great Islay for the price, and I'd second the recc for the Ardbeg 10yo. If you want to move upmarket some, also check out Bruichladdich peated versions (Port Charlotte is my current fav), Ardbeg Corryvreckan, Lagavulin 8 or 16.

+1 on the port char...fantastic. Lafrog 10 yr. cask is a good pour as well- batch 12 is out although not seen in the wild yet...qtr cask in the interim.
