@Jhonx,
Maker's Mark and George Dickel are the whiskeys I have appreciated. Jim Beam is good. While Southern Comfort is good whiskeyesque drink to mix with other stuff.

@tsarstepan,
Thanks for the help. These are all Bourbon. But there are other type of whisky, for example the scotch whisky. The expert appreciates this type of whisky because they are intense but also very strong. You know some good brand of scotch whisky?

Indeed there is the Scotch whisky. For ordinary drinking I like a blended grain and malt whisky like Johnnie Walker Red Label or the more expensive Johnnie Walker Black Label and for special occasions a Speyside single malt such as Glenfiddich or Glen Grant. My absolute favourite is an Islay single malt called Laphroaig.

@Jhonx,
If you like smoky peat (I do), try Lagavulin.

It's very nice. You may laugh at this, but I quite like the 18 year old single malt they sell in Lidl from time to time, some people say it looks and tastes like a Tamnavulin 18 year old. Sweet with a hint of smoke in the finish. Their 12 year old is nice too, a hint of iodine, a bit medicinal, at first I didn't like it, but by the time the bottle was half empty (i.e. a week or 10 days later) I had become very fond of it.

@contrex,
I remember liking Lagavulin back when we had a friend that stocked his den bar quite well.

@Jhonx,
Well, try some of these - Talisker, Macallan, Laphroaig, Bruichladdich, Springbank. I'm no expert, just like them.

Irish Whiskey - Try a Bushmills from the world's oldest distillery.

@Ceili,
Yesterday i tryed the Oban 12 years old and the Talisker equal aged. The first was very delicate and the flavor was quite. I liked a lot this. The second whisky was very strong and had a strong taste of smocke and of burnt wood

According to me Signature is the best whisky. But I am not a professional drinker. By the help my friend I suggest you a brand name of the whisky.

Elijah Craig and Johnnie Walker are the best from the rest. If you have not tested them then you have not tested any real whisky.
