    I'm doing something very bad lately - slamming the girlfriend's Jack Daniels single barrel and Jim Beam's Black lately. Firing them neat, with an occasional chaser. I will be hanging with Navy folks (Ret) soon, and could use some advice.

    Dewar's on the rocks does me right.

    I take my bourbon neat with a beer back.
    Sadly unable to indulge these days

    I dated other whiskeys but they were mostly cheap whores. But there were a few I'd bring home to mom.

    I like Maker's Mark. I like it neat but if I am trying to make it last, I will put 1-2 ice cubes in it.

    I suppose my point with Dewar's is that it's a nice segway into the world of scotch if you've never tried scotch, but you quickly graduate to something better and single malted.

    If you are looking for good, not too expensive, single malt scotches, I would recommend Macallan, Balvenie and Glenrothes. All three are pretty smooth drinking if you are in the 12-year range.

    If you want to man up into Ron Swanson territory, Lagavulin 16 gets the job done, but it is more expensive and has more of a bite to it.

    Makers neat for me as well. Not a bad additive for an after dinner coffee as well.

    Abelour 12 year is a really nice Highland scotch, smooth and just a touch sweet. Usually a touch more expensive than the Glens (Fiddich, Livet, Rothes), but not that much more. One of my faves.

    Well, when I splurge for the best I go for Balvenie.

    In the interim, Dewar's works.
