    My guess would be Irish whiskey.

    Yep, Hertz confirmed it.

    edit: forgot the e...guess I was just trying to turn it into Scotch!

    normally i drink Scottish, but Irish is OK as I found out now. Might try what Hertz suggested.

    I'm still in love with my Laphroaig scotch...it's like liquid smoke. Delicious!

    I rarely drink hard liquor (I don't know why), but when I do I enjoy some Glenlivet. Its easy to find, too. Cause pretty much if anyone has a single-malt, its gonna be the Livet.

    I've never had brandi or cognac, though. Someone told me I'd probably really like it. But with how little I drink, I just can't see me buying a bottle of Remy Martin. It'd take 10 years for me to finish it! :)

    Glenlivet is probably the best deal in Scotch, the 12 year is good, but not great, and dirt cheap when it comes to scotch. I usually have a bottle of that around as well!

    As for brandy or cognac, I've only had cognac, but I've tried all 3 major ones (Hennessey, Remy Martin, and Courvoisier VSOPs), and Hennessey is by far my favorite, it's just great.

    Beer is better especially a nice Scotch Ale.

    we are talking about enjoying taste here. money should not play a major role then. I prefer to drink half the amount and get something special for double the price.
