Tuscaloosa Whiskey‽‽‽

I found a reference to Tuscaloosa Whiskey in an old book explaining how to copy liquor. Tuscaloosa is my hometown, and I've never heard of this before. Newspaper archives reveal many people advertising that they have Tuscaloosa Whiskey for sale around 1850. Does anyone have suggestions of how to learn anything more about Tuscaloosa Whiskey?

What Japanese Whiskey or Sake should I bring home from Tokyo?

I am in Tokyo for the next few days, and want to pick up some uniquely Japanese gifts for my boss & coworkers back in the US. Since they are generally hard to please (and they fancy themselves "connessieurs"), exotic/interesting booze tends to be the easiest thing for me to get for them when I need to get gifts for them.

Best pro-tips for managing a five day drink-a-thon

I'm home for the holidays and seeing many friends after years apart. I have five days, each consisting of brunch, lunch and dinner with others, and am looking forward to unimaginable quantities of free alcohol. I am a seasoned (pickled?) drinker that does not normally get hangovers but never have I been on such a social whirlwind with so many opportunities to celebrate. Does anyone have advice for overcoming the potential weaknesses of the flesh to rise to this challenge? Or, how to pace myself when offered so much free deliciousness? Details below [more inside]

How much sugar/sweetness do oak barrels add to whiskey?

The other night a friend of mine argued that aging in oak adds a minimal amount of sugar to whiskey: oak's main addition to the end product is flavour, with the majority of the sugar in whiskey being a product of the fermented mash. Is this true? Does the oak have a significant role in the sugariness and/or sweetness of the end product?

Moonshine from 1969 (or 1977), what will it taste like?

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?

Are these blogs viral marketing?

Here are three NSFW porn blogs, called: tattoos-n-blondes, i-n-k-e-d-b-i-t-c-h, 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.

How can I find this pumpkin spice whiskey?

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!

http://www.esquire.com/features/drinking/​ scotch-pronunciation-guide-5836

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.

I like Islay whisky, what Bourbon might appeal?

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?

What can you tell me about this old bottle of whiskey?

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?

Bourbon in Scotland

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]

"I'll Take Some Tennesee, Please."

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.

Have your heard mulled wine referred to by the name "whiskey?"

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]
