I have a sealed bottle straight corn whiskey from McCormick distilling company. The bottle says it was aged 8 years and it has the mark of 1977 on on the bottom. It was kept in a cold basement all this time.
Is this still drinkable? What will it taste like?

Here are three NSFW porn blogs, called: tattoos-n-blondes
, and s-u-i-c-d-al-r-e-v-e-n-g-e
; all are hosted on tumblr, and all frequently reblog each other's posts. Does anyone know: are these blogs actually viral marketing for Jack Daniels? About once every 20-30 images in each, there is a prominently displayed picture of Jack Daniels whiskey, either by itself or being held by a lass. Are these blogs being independently run, but paid by the Brown-Forman corporation
? Are the blogs actual sanctioned advertising directly from that corporation? Attempts to ask the blogs via tumblr's messaging feature have gone unanswered.

I had no idea how much I wanted a pumpkin spice whiskey until I turned up this
via Facebook this morning. But! It's only sold in New England! I can't find anywhere to buy it online and I don't know anyone who lives in New England. Am I out of options? Please let me know if you have any ideas/suggestions for obtaining this. (I live in Seattle, if that helps.) Thanks!

I need to buy my brother a very good bottle of scotch. The last very good bottle of scotch I bought him was Highland Park 12 year. He liked that. But he has done me a series of nice, nice favors for which I would like to top said Highland Park.
He also likes Laphroaig. Really, he just likes scotch and whiskey.
Suggestions, please, $200 and under.

My single malt top preference is for fairly tradiitonal peatty Islay malts. I very much enjoy most of the Laphroaig outputs and love the 16 year old Lagavulin - I can take or leave Bruichladdich and have no interest in the trend for super peatty malts. I am looking to expand my tastes into bourbon but have little experience. Given that love of Laphroaig and Lagavulin, what bourbons might most appeal?

I pulled up the old floor in our house and found an old, mostly full, quart bottle of whiskey labeled "William Penn". Our house, located in Indianapolis (US) was built in the 1890s but I don't think the bottle is that old. Here are some pictures 1 2 3 4 5
. It was wrapped in a German language newspaper that appeared to be from Indianapolis but is too fragmented to get a date from. What can you tell me about this whiskey?

I'm heading to Scotland in a few months and I'd like to give my host, who's a fan of Scotch (or just whisky, there) a gift of good American Bourbon. My criteria are that it's a very good bourbon, and that it's a bourbon that he couldn't get there in Scotland. I don't know anything about bourbon, though. Want to help me out? [more inside]

Why is Scotch whisky called that, instead of "Scottish whisky"? And how did Scotch, which is (or should be) used as a versatile adjective, become short for the whisky itself? I'd think that'd be similar to calling Tennessee whiskey simply "Tennessee." Just curious. Thanks in advance.

I was looking at an Icelandic book of recipes from 1858 that is largely based on Danish cookbooks and in it there's a recipe for "whiskey" which is made from tea, sugar, lemonjuice and white wine. This isn't terribly similar to glühwein or glögg, but not entirely dissimilar. My question is, does anyone know why this is referred to as "whiskey" in the recipe book? Has anyone heard any kind of European mulled wine referred to by that name? Or know another name for mixed wine and tea drinks? I've put the recipe inside. [more inside]

I want to become a whiskey drinker, lover and aficionado. Over the past several months I have grown to enjoy whiskey very much. Can someone point be in the right direction of some good whiskies to start building a nice collection around? Any literature I can get my hands on to improve my whiskey knowledge?

Is there an easy way to determine the value of a very old bottle of Scotch Whiskey? It has been in the cellar here since I was a young boy. No idea exactly how old it is. It has got to be at least 30 years old. Teachers Highland Cream.
