    The Angels' Share
    is a Scottish comedy-drama film directed by Ken Loach, starring Paul Brannigan, John Henshaw, William Ruane, Gary Maitland, Jasmin Riggins, and Siobhan Reilly. It tells the story of a young Glaswegian father who narrowly avoids a prison sentence. He is determined to turn over a new leaf and when he and his friends from the same community payback group visit a whisky distillery, a route to a new life becomes apparent.[4] The title is from "the angels' share", a term for the portion (share) of a whisky's volume that is lost to evaporation during aging in oak barrels.

    It's certainly not Scotch.

    The colour alone gives it away.

    For a Brit that's an awful weak brew.

    I love bourbon / rye / Canadian whiskey but absolutely can't stand Scotch Whisky..That being said, my wife grabbed me some last minute gifts passing through LHR, one of those being a small 20CL bottle of Bells Original..Of course I tasted it, so missing about an ounce..I will be going to PROGDAY, if anyone is interested in it I will trade you for a nice cool IPA...

    Bells is horrendous stuff, I don't even take that to my boys drinking weekend for 2am in a field. My go to cheap slugging whisky is Famous Grouse.

    I saw this and really enjoyed it, especially after being in Scotland. We definitely got a whiff of the Angel's Share when we visited the cask vault. The minute they opened the door it was overpowering, and really nice!

    Same here. When the missus and I were touring Scotland, we noticed that all the bars kept Famous Grouse as their bar/blended scotch. So I bought a bottle when we got home and have kept one on hand for Rusty Nails and her family.

    To you, what is the difference between rye and Canadian Whisky. Up here, rye IS Canadian Whisky... As for not liking scotch at all? That's like saying I don't like wine or beer. There are so many types out there that maybe you just haven't found the one for you. Scotch is the DEFINITIVE whisky. Your statement is the equivalent of saying you like sparkling wine but don't like champagne...

    To my tongue Bourbon and Irish whiskey has a sweetness that I could do whithout.
    Its good in a drink, coffee, but pure or on the rocks it taste 'cheap' somehow.

    I find there are some excellent bourbons out there, like Knob Creek for example.

    Knob Creek is my go-to for bourbon. I like the caramel notes--they really come through in this, without being cloying.

    But Bourbon is not Scotch.....and bourbons, in general, I find to have far less variety than Malts.

    I hate to admit it, but when it comes to whiskey, it's Wild Turkey 100 proof. I want to try a high end single malt Scotch. So far the worst alcoholic beverages I've had, contained Scotch.

    Ian will back me up on this: nothing stronger than Babycham for the ladies!

    I'll have to try The Famous Grouse.

    My wife started a teetotaler when we first met but she was on vodka and orange within a few weeks, not sure what that says about me. I've known a few whisky drinking cigar smoking women with potty mouths, all of them lovely ladies.

    Famous Grouse is awful in my experience. It was like "scotch flavored grain alcohol" for me. I especially do not recommend drinking it neat.

    For my money, the best slumming blended Scotch is Dewar's White Label.

    The best single malt "daily drinker" which I have gotten as low as $30 at times is Glenmorangie 10.

    Glenmorangie 10 is certainly an excellent choice and much better than Grouse, I rarely find it at a sluggable price in England when I'm buying for my boozy weekend.

    I like the Knob. Many don't know that Knob is produced by the makers of Jim Beam, which also produces a few other popularized small batch bourbons: Booker's, Baker's, and Basil Hayden's. I like Knob from that group, however everyone should try Booker's at least once as it's a cask strength monster!
