It’s about time we fire up the old Drunken Whiskey Review machine with another bargain scotch called Drumguish Scotch Whisky. You’ve definitely seen it on the bottom or second to bottom shelf of the packie, hanging out next to some of the weirder scotches that are sold for anywhere from $20- $40. Let me just say this, the 20-40 dollar range of scotch is a wild, wild fucking world. You have zero idea what you’re going to get. Some of them are awesome, and some are absolute garbage. Much more of a wide range than the other kinds of whiskies, too. With rye or bourbon, 20-40 dollars is guarenteed to get you a good whiskey. But with Scotch it could go either way. So which way does Drumguish Scotch fall on? Let’s find out.
How to Drink It
First of all, I have no damn idea how to actually pronounce this whiskey. I’m calling it “Drumbush” because I think that’s hilarious and I also kind of think it’s actually correct. We tried this whiskey full strempf, on the rocks, and in a shot (no mixed drinks for Scotch, that’s for the birds). The absolute best way to drink Drumguish is on the rocks, and it’s not even really that close. In fact, you should drink this whiskey along with a couple ice cold beers, because it really is the perfect companion. It’s like a pallete cleanser, just like that ginger shit you get with sushi. Those Asians definitely had it right with that shit. Have a couple beers, drink some Drum bush in between, and you’re golden.
This is going to sound completely out of left field, but this whiskey actually kind of tastes like cereal. And not Lucky Charms or any good cereal, but it almost reminds me of unfrosted mini-wheats. Or Wheeties. Is there any difference between those cereals, by the way? What even are Wheeties? Do they actually give you athletic ability like I’m assuming they do? Anyway, this Scotch tastes exactly like those cereals, except it doesn’t suck. It’s not that great, but it doesn’t suck. And when you’re alone in a supermarket, completely overwhelmed, what do you do? You reach for a box of Wheeties because there’s an off chance that you become a super athlete or a super hero or something. So next time you’re in the packie and you’re either completely overwhelmed or completely wasted, just try this stuff and see what happens. You definitely won’t regret it, but you probably won’t be winning any gold medals, either.
So Drumguish Scotch Whisky is definitely worthy of a try. I wouldn’t go ordering it in any bars anytime soon, and to be honest I probably won’t be buying it again anytime soon, but I definitely will keep it in mind. Like I said it’s a great whiskey for sipping in between beers when you’re trying to get drunk fast, but other than that it’s really nothing to write home about. So go ahead, give it a try, or don’t. I quite literally could not care less.
