    Come on, YF. If there's one thing we can get together on, it's the answer to this question.

    Up the Republic.

    I rarely buy hard liquor for myself to keep at home because I try not to drink it too regularly, but I had occasion to pick up a bottle of whiskey this week and I tried Jameson's for the first time basically because McNulty drank it on "The Wire."

    It is, of course, excellent.

    I'll go with either Jameson or Bushmills. They're both fine spirits.

    Irish, followed closely by Bourbon.

    My favorites are:

    1.) Midleton's Very Rare
    2.) Bushmill's 12 (you can only get it at the distillery)
    3.) Bushmill's 16


    1.) Jefferson's Presidential 18
    2.) Blanton's
    3.) Woodford

    Woodford for sipping, Jameson's for shooting. Rum, vodka and tequila all show up in mixed drinks in the summer. And, of course, vodka for lono at Passover.

    I don't like blended whiskeys as a general rule.

    If I have my choice and money isn't an object, I start with good single malt scotches. Oban Manager's Choice is damned good. Macallan 18 is a favorite, too,

    If I have to pay for it, I am more likely to go Macallan 12. If it's night time and I am winding down and I am grabbing a bottle, it is usually Irish Whiskey. Jameson's, to be exact. I find it incredibly drinkable and a couple of belts relaxes me like no one's business.

    I went with bourbon because it's my drink of choice, but at the top level, which I can't afford, I prefer single malt Scotch.

    Whatever is within reach.

    If I tend to drink too much whiskey however, I tend to try to cut on things that don't necessarily need cutting.
