    Over the past year I have become quite fond of the whiskey tribe on youtube.
    Been into whiskey for about 2 or so years.

    Basically this thread will be for whiskey trading for those who cant get brand, A,B,C,or D in their state or town. (Obviously only participate if it's legal to ship distilled spirits where you live.)
    ONLY USE FEDEX OR UPS TO SHIP.
    If you use the postal service and they catch you. NOT GOOD.

    I found they have their own distillery. Which I was lucky enough to have a bladeforums member pick up and ship me 2 of the Texas Whiskey Festival blend. Which was awesome. I traded for a custom blade. Which was definitely in his favor!

    So I'm starting this thread to see if anyone else is interested in a similar arrangements. But less the knife. Basically people can trade, or pay for a whiskey, and pay for shipping. I just cant afford doing a basically free blade for whiskey, much to expensive.

    So what is everyones favorite style or brand of whiskey?

    Recently I have been getting into Texas whiskey.
    I also found Nikka coffee grain whiskey. My first Japanese whiskey I found I liked. (Just haven't had many)

    Johnny Walker Black Label
    Lagavulin 16 year old
    Highland Park Viking Honor
    Four Roses
    ...the list goes on and on.
    But for favourite style, definitely Scottish single malt.

    The only whisky I've had that I DIDN'T like was actually a Nikka, can't remember the name though.

    Ahh interesting.
    I'm not a big fan of scotch for the most part. Just havent found anything with a BIG flavor profile for me.
    I'm not fond of johnny Walker.
    But I have some four Rose's single barrel cask strength. It was a barrel pick for a local store.
    Big flavor.

    Crowded barrel Texas whiskey festival blend is excellent. 116 proof. Good straight or one ice cube for a few minutes and removed. Takes a hint of the alcohol heat out and opens up some different flavors.

    @WValtalkis
    Except that balvinie * that you brought to blade. That was quite nice. Tasty stuff.

    Thanks for the spelling correction lol.
    But yea that was very good.

    I recently found finished whiskeys. And damn some are CRAZY GOOD.

    Widow Jane. Not sure which one.
    But I believe it was a rye aged in oak and apple wood. Great stuff!

    Rye is something that I'm really interested in trying more of, but believe it or not, not really a big rye market in Norway:rolleyes:

    There are not multiple ways to spell single malt scotch whisky. Ask any Scot.
