Teroforma Whisky stones and the best Whiskies
I love my glass of whisky and I’m a big fan of Macallan 18. So when I’m not drinking Jameson or any other whisky on the rocks you can find me drinking my glass of whisky, aged 18 years or over neat or with these Teroforma whisky stones.
Milled in Vermont by the oldest soapstone workshop in the US, these stones are great because they won’t water down your drink and allow you to taste the actual flavor of your whisky.
Normally, when drinking any scotch whisky or whisky under 18 years it is best to drink it on the rocks or with a bit of still clear water. However, when drinking anything aged 18 years or more it is recommended you drink it neat so you can taste the smoothness of the whisky. For those of you who drink whiskies 18 and over and enjoy their drink chilled like I do then I suggest getting a set of these whisky stones because like I mentioned before they will not dilute your drink.
Below, is a list of my favorite and the best Irish Whisky or Scotch Whiskies every man should taste or at least have a bottle in their bar cabinet. These whiskies are only meant to be drank neat or with the Teroforma stones above, which can be purchased at teroforma.com.
If you enjoy Irish Whisky, a glass of Jameson 18 Year Limited Reserve should be what you order when you are out at a bar. However, I’ve always found it somewhat difficult to request since not many bars carry it, so I’ll usually have a glass of regular Jameson on the rocks. A bottle of 18 will cost you $115.
When I’m in the mood for mix drinks and want a great buzz, a glass of Chivas Regal Scotch Gold Signature Aged 18 Years with a splash of Ginger ale or Amaretto to add a bit of sweetness does the trick. Then once I had enough of the sweetness, I’ll switch to a glass of Chivas Regal Scotch Royal Salute Aged 21 Years to keep it in the family and avoid any hangovers. Then again, I hardly ever get any hangovers when drinking. A bottle of Chivas Regal Gold 18 will cost you $82 while a bottle of Royal 21 will be $200.
Lately, my taste buds have changed. So now, I have switched it up to drinking Macallan 18 Years Old Single Malt Scotch when I am out at a bar. You can find me drinking a glass of this scotch whisky neat or sometimes with one cube since bars don’t carry the stones above and the last thing you want to do is have a bunch of ice diluted into your 18 year whisky. Even though it is recommended you drink this whisky neat, I still like my whisky chilled. A bottle of Macallan 18 will cost you $170.
Another scotch whisky I normally order at a bar is a Glenfiddich Scotch 21 Years Old. This scotch whisky is a tiny bit smoother than the Macallan 18, but bars tend to charge you more for a glass of this whisky. Therefore, I rather just get a bottle for myself and enjoy it with friends that may visit. However, if you are not a regular whisky drinker then you will not notice the difference and I suggest you just stick with Macallan 18. A bottle of Glenfiddich 21 will cost you $190.
Are you feeling like a baller and want to spend some serious money on a glass of whisky? This next scotch whisky is only meant to be ordered neat and tastes best when smoking a cigar. Actually, a great place to drink this is at a cigar / whisky bar. Take a date there and impress her with your choice of whisky. However, make sure she is a smoker because all that smoke you will encounter from the cigars at the bar may be a turnoff for her if she doesn’t smoke. So, the whisky we recommend when feeling like the man and in the mood to enjoying something luxury is a Glenlivet Scotch Aged 25 Years. This bottle will cost you $400.
Next, the whisky recommended for that high-paid CEO at a company who enjoys owning a 25 year old whisky bottle and only takes it out to share with special clients; is a Macallan 25 Years Old Single Malt Scotch. This bottle will cost you $900 for the Macallan Fine Oak.
The most expensive, rarest and smoothness import scotch whisky out there that you will find in the states is a Macallan 30 Years Old Single Malt Scotch. This bottle is on my wish-list, cost $1400 and is the bottle that you keep locked up somewhere so only you can enjoy alone.
