Here you go

  • step one: subscribe to /r/bourbon
  • Buy a bottle of Buffalo Trace, Elijah Craig 12, Evan Williams Single Barrel, or Four Roses Small Batch
  • Pour your new purchase into any glass you have, but look into getting a Glencairn
  • Sit back and enjoy!

u/huhwhatanaccount · 6 pointsr/starcraft

And a proper whiskey glass as well. Looks like a Glencairn, if I'm not mistaken.

You've come to the right place. There are a ton of excellent community members here who are eager to help new-comers like yourself. Stay within the whisky network and you'll be a seasoned malt / mash head in no time!

  • Add a few drops of water First tip.. Only cool clean (bottled or filtered) water is allowed in your single malts and bourbons. Add a little bit at a time to get used to drinking it "neat" (without water).

  • Invest in a nosing glass A Glencairn or a Capita or a regular wine glass will due in a pinch.

  • Ask questions! Don't be afraid to ask other community members for help or tips.

  • Read a ton of reviews This will help guide you to figure out which flavor profiles you like best and help you decide on making educated purchases. Our goal is to help you avoid buying shitsky as /u/texacer likes to call it.

  • Check out the side bar and malt map here and other side bar resources. There are some excellent videos posted under helpful stuff. Plenty of documentaries about Scotch whisky. I'll need to work on a Bourbon video section at some point.

    Cheers sir or madam, and enjoy yourself!

The US Amazon has them for $6.90 and free shipping if you get $25 of stuff:

There are also sets of them on there for a bit cheaper.

u/daeedorian · 4 pointsr/Scotch

$7.60 apiece to anyone with Amazon prime...

I keep ordering them for friends, mostly because I want to have one to use when I'm at their houses... but it makes me look nice.

This $5 mini pitcher is also a great addition...

Do you mean Laphroaig? It's pronounced "lafroyg". You could get him a set of Glencairn whisky snifter glasses, I'll edit back with a link to amazon

Edit: something like this:

u/gimpwiz · 3 pointsr/tequila

I bought this: set of six. I kept four and gave two to a good friend.

Alternatively, if you want just the one, this single is a good price.

Finally, this site sells glencairns with various things on the glass, and they do sell (but are currently out of stock) a glencairn with a reddit alien (snoo) logo on it. It's not to my taste but a lot of people like it. They're a bit more expensive, but they are high quality, not some cheap acid etching. And they have fancy gift box type dealies if you want fancy; a standard box of six just looks like this.

For Reidels, I would ask /u/ipixelpixels for a better opinion than mine!

u/Goatpunching · 3 pointsr/Scotch

I am in the US, I got a little better deal than what you can get them on amazon right now and it was a local place so no shipping. The one issue is they did come in the commercial box and not in the retail box. I would say this is the best deal right now.

For $50 to $100 I'd stay away from buying them watches. Watches can be a very particular item for people and you don't want the gift to just sit in a drawer if they don't like the specific model you gave them. How about something unique like this:
Whiskey Stones, Whiskey Glass
& an entry level bottle of Pappy Van Winkle

That is an inexpensive gift that even a connoisseur would appreciate.

u/ITrageGuy · 2 pointsr/Scotch

Less than $8 Can't beat it IMO.

u/jaikeane · 2 pointsr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon

It's too quiet in here!

And this would make me happy!

Related fact: The term “whisky” is actually derived from the Gaelic words uisage beatha, which in turn came from the Latin Acqua Vitae or “water of life.” It’s thought that the name refers to the fact that whisky was first used by monks for medicinal purposes.

> I'll have to do some research on what to buy and invest in something better.

A Glencairn glass is most popular, but there are others. You can get one for about $10 at some stores or online:

> That seems a little pricey, and I don't know if my drinking habits will allow me to stretch a bottle across 6-8 nights.

Scotch is more expensive than bourbon. In my opinion, you won't find much below $50-60 that's well regarded. There are some cheaper options, but you'll run out of them eventually if you want to try something different each time. Additional price increases have started pushing many of the more flavorful malts you'll see recommended on here to $60-$80. That price range will provide you with many options; some of those options are higher proof, so you might be able to drink less or add water to your scotch. The base assumption is that these bottles are all 750 ml.

> So why is it looked down upon?

It's fine, but it's somewhat bland in my opinion. It's the highest volume single malt in the world, so it's mass produced at lowest cost. This is somewhat indicated by its price. To an extent (but not always), you get what you pay for (at this end of the market--not really true at $100+), which is why eventually you'll have to pay more.

> I'm starting to look towards the peaty end of the spectrum. Anything non-respectable there?

By no means are peated scotches the only respectable options. You want a list of non-respectable options? Instead, I would recommend that the Islay single malts are mostly all decent. The least expensive from the distillers are some of the new no-age Bowmores and Laphroaigs, but again you get what you pay for. ~$50 will get you entry-level Laphroaig 10yr and Ardbeg 10yr, which are both very good. Others have recommended a few of the "mystery" single malts or blends, which are a little cheaper but also younger.

All of this is just my opinion. I would also agree with most the other bottle recommendations here, but I chose my favorites to recommend. Ultimately you'll just have to try a few and see where it takes you and come back for more advice if you need it.

I would recommend that you don't necessarily have to rush through many options at once. Instead, focus on your Glenfiddich bottle and getting as much out of it as you can. Get a better glass and keep drinking Glenfiddich over a period of time, because as your palate develops you'll discover new aspects of it. You may have to buy another bottle of it if you're drinking that fast. Then eventually take the plunge and try something else. Rinse, repeat.

The one that I've gone to, twice and a third time next year :), was very much worth it; there were scotches, bourbons, ryes, vodkas, gins, rums, etc everywhere. There was also free apps, loved me the smoked salmon, for days. AND I got to keep the snifter, or Glencairn, that I used throughout the night.

My ticket was $75, for all you can drink, from $1000 bottles, and all you can eat. That really just replaces a couple of weeks worth of going out; it's more than worth it.

Hope yours is similar, both in experience and in price :)

u/xaffinityx · 1 pointr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon

When I am thirsty I love to drink Coca Cola. I will never drink water when I am thirsty. Unless that water has been converted to tea, lemonade, or koolaid!

Whiskey glass so we can be fancy butts.

u/a8vision · 1 pointr/Scotch

looks like you can get 2 for $18 rather than 1 @ ~$7 each.
