Well, we could always just agree to use the original usquebaugh (water of life), wherever it might be made.

Beam over Jack, in the standard white and black label flavors. Now, Gentleman Jack I can savor with gusto. I do like a good Irish or Scotch whiskey, but cannot name specific makes that I prefer one over the other. Whiskey is certainly my first choice of a hard drink. Straight up, or over one rock on the double shot, though I have been known to partake out of a flask in my saddle bags.

Having "passed a bottle" around many a campfire, there was never any "rotgut." I found it interesting that when someone took the time to pack it in, that they made sure what they packed in was really good. I had an uncle on an elk hunt, that right after harvesting an elk, broiled some backstrap, roasted some potatoes, and brought out a couple of bottles of Chateau neuf de pape. He always said the greatest meal in the world was fresh elk steaks with a good wine...........

He also introduced me to single malt scotch (back when single malt was unheard of), epic poetry, and fundamental ballistics of hunting firearms......

These are my choices too. For scotch I like two opposites, Macallan and Laphroaig. I was initially put off by the peatiness of the latter, but after avoiding and avoiding the flavor I actually found myself starting to crave it.

Pet peeve: When I order a round of two fingers straight and anyone in my party just downs it like a cheap shot. Uh, this ain't a Western or a film noir, pal. Do ya see a camera crew? Relax and enjoy. Savor.

I fell in love with the Laphroaig cask strength..........it really is addictive, although a bottle will last quite a while..........

If you join the barrel club at Maker's Mark (they put your name on a barrel and when it's ready you're invited to come and wax your bottle) they send you nice presents at Christmas...like gift bags, wrapping paper, etc.
