Scotch: the best audio tweak of them all - Page 2

post #16 of 19

The only whiskey I really enjoy is Irish.  Scotch is great but nearly all of the affordable bottles taste like ass.  Irish whiskeys are ALOT more forgiving on the lower end of the price range.  My bottle of choice is usually Red Breast as it is a good compromise between quality and price.

 

That said, I almost never drink something that strong specifically for audio listening.  My preference usually leans towards a nice beer, preferably a stout like Rasputin or Speedway.  If not, never have a problem settling with a Stone or other Northcoast brew.

I love all of the brown liquids: scotch, whisk(e)y, bourbon, armangnac, cognac, and rye. Haven't met a boutique one I didn't like and Evan Williams is a surprisingly good inexpensive tipple.

Though I don't know if I'd call them a good audio tweak. Alcohol puts me to sleep, seemingly faster with each passing year. When I'm at the point of happiness, sitting down for a listen lasts about 15 minutes before I drift off. After a few drinks, I need to be on my feet socializing or else I'll drift off somewhere.

Johnny Walker Black seems really healthy in small amounts. No hangover and wonderful effects.

I often feel a little guilty if I spend too long listening to headphones... I start thinking of everything else I probably should be doing, which detracts from the enjoyment.

 

With scotch, I no longer care, and can spend hours single-mindedly going through album after album :P
