To date, as a result of quality and price, mostly price, my two favorites are both Scotch.  Glenlivet 12 year single malt is my current go to and I am also fond of Teachers Highland Cream blended.  I once had some Jim Beam Black (I think) which was nice.

I drink these neat.

I'm a single malt fan. Not sure I have a single favourite, but it would probably be something like Jura or an Islay single malt like Bowmore. I have a bottle of Loch Lomond at home, which I've never tried but we brought back from holiday this year. I'm looking forward to testing it at Christmas.

I'm not a massive fan of blended whiskey, but Famous Grouse and their variant Black Grouse are reasonable. I can't bear Bells or Teachers.

Outside of Scotch, I'd have to say that my favourite spirits are Himbeergheist (like a Schnapps made from raspberries) and a good țuică (Romanian spirit made from plums).

I'm a fairly newcomer to Scotch, which is why I started on a couple blended versions.  I'm sure as my tastes develop I will find new single malts I enjoy.  Glenlivet seems to be a popular standard among many fans of Scotch.  Laphroaig is not one I can drink at this time, I shy away from Islay Scotch for the time being.  I'll have to look into the others you mentioned.  FG isn't bad.

I'm becoming a Scotch and Bourbon guy, myself. So far, my favorite single malt scotch is Highland Park 12. I like Glenlivet, too. But I usually drink Black Grouse or Famous Grouse because they taste great and are affordable. I'm still too weak for drinking 'em neat, so usually add a couple of ice cubes. As for Bourbons, I really enjoy Maker's Mark. In moderation, of course.  angel

You'd have got short shrift from my Scottish aunt for putting ice in whiskey. A little flat water (not ice cold) or straight was the only way she'd serve it. I drink it straight as a result. Some people claim a touch of water improves the flavour. I've never been convinced.

Evan Williams Black Label.  The Black is surprisingly good for how inexpensive it is.  I always keep it around.  If I have a little extra cash though, I reach for the Woodford Reserve.  I guess its not too expensive, but both of those satisfy me just fine, so I dont see the need to spend even more on something super fancy.

For every other type of spirit, I just get whats cheapest*** as I am probably mixing it anyways.  Ive been known to have some bourbon neat, then turn around and have a cosmo with the wife.  Dont judge... Smiley

*** Unless its tequila. Then I try to get something a little nicer so I dont die.

With all whiskys (and whiskeys), addition of very small amounts of water changes their chemistry (thus bouquet and flavor), often in most amazing ways. There really is not a perfect way to enjoy them.

Ouiske (Sotch, whisky)--Laphroaig, Caol Ila, JW Black Label (will crack open the Double Black after Christmas)

In the cocktail world, which I rarely visit, I like rusty nails (best with Chivas and Drambouie) and this one other cocktail which was unique--featuring lemon and cask-strength Laphroaig.

Cognac and brandy: Courvoisier, Georgian brandy, (Haven't tried Armenian yet)

B&B: Benedictine and Brandy (Cognac). Benedictine is pretty sweet on its own, but it's a distillation of herbs blended with brandy. Great on the rocks after a difficult day.

Grappa--a local variety from a vineyard I visited.

Ouzo, when I feel like it.

Bourbon, when nothing else is available.

There may not be a perfect way to enjoy them, but there are certainly bad ones - whiskey and irn bru, for instance (for those who don't know that's a weird bright orange soft drink from Scotland). I've tried whiskey with and without water and I've been unconvinced by the claims made, but if anyone else wants to add water that's fine with me, just please don't mix single malt with a soft drink,

Aberlour A'bunadh, Lagavulin, and Scapa are my favorite Scotches.  All three are radically different from each other.

For Burbon, Bookers is my favorite with Maker's Mark and Bulliet, with the latter being what I probably drink the most.

Martell Cordon Bleu is my favorite Cognac

I prefer mine neat, but I have found that dropping in one small ice cube enhances the flavor just a tiny bit.  It doesnt make it too cold or water it down like it does on the rocks.

I would like to try some different scotches, but at the considerable cost of some I have seen, I don't see it happening anytime soon.  I have a hard enough time paying $35 for a bottle.  At $80 plus, it can stay on the shelf.

Drambuie tops the list. Bailey's comes next, together with its non-Gaelic cousin, Brandy Alexander.

The husband is a whisky buff, with Glenlivet and Glenfiddich among his favourites.

Very rarely drink alcohol, but spirit favourites include Bushmills Black Bush, Schnapps and a good vodka, but not at the same time. Certainly had some excellent local distilled spirits in Greece but generally prefer a cup of very weak black tea.

Mixed malts like Teachers and Bells are no good except as a topical antiseptic if you have nothing else to hand. Once gave a sick guinea pig - notoriously difficult to treat when ill - a dose of scotch and garlic, it recovered immediately. The vetinary said it recovered because it was frightened I going to give it a second dose!

Unless it's a crappy single malt, like the cheap kinds that are less than 10 years old (i.e., the manufacturer is too embarrassed to put an age on the label).

I keep my Bailey's in the fridge (naturally), so it doesn't even need ice. One single cube in my Drambuie is enough to chill it without diluting it.

Husband adds just a splash of cold water to his whisky, claiming it brings out the flavour.
