One of your options is other whiskies. After that list are their any others? Perhaps from Mars or somewhere like that. :o

Canadian Mist is my favorite for mixing. Good and cheap (about $15 for a 1.75 Ltr)

I haven't voted in this poll because, truth be told, I prefer ginger ale when I occasionally do reach for a soft drink to add to whisky. And in those instances, I find a Highland single malt or blended Scotch works best.

Crown Royal and Coke is, of course, an established classic, though a good middle-of-the-road Bourbon would probably mix just as well.

I think a cask strength, no caramel, non-chill filtered, triple wood singel malt really brings out the subtler undertones of cloud and butter in a light low calorie Cola drink. That would be my choice.

I wouldn't be surprised if the next poll will be "Which of these things can you taste in whisky?", with a long list of possibly absurd options.

I was trying to be ironic, Johan.

did anyone see that video thing with Richard, the guy from White & Mackay, and a barman mixing cocktails. they whisky companies are delighted to have thier product drunk in any way. Then don't even mind if most of it is spilled.

Actually, the real question is what is the best Cola to go with the non-chill filtered no caramel cask strength quadruple wood single malt mega peaty single malt.

Coca Cola is a little bitter perhaps, Pepsi quite sweet. Aldi do a good own label that seems to accentuate the oily leathery undertones of the whiskey which is okay for home use but it's hard to get ithat particular cola in night clubs!

Sorry Aidan. I took it a bit too seriously. I often see customers in the bar mixing Glenfiddich or a good cognac with a coca cola and it always makes me a bit mad.

I'd go mad too if I saw someone ruin a good Cola by putting Glenfiddich into it. I understand where you're coming from.

You have Aldi in Dublin? :o I had no idea. They have indeed their own good coca cola. I like it better than the 'real stuff'.
Still, I think this poll is taking it a bit too far '100point'. Be more brief with the options please.

The only things I have drank with Coke is Makers Mark, Crown Royal, and Jack Daniels but that was when I was like 20yrs old. I don't do that anymore. So, i can't really answer the question but I figured I would put in my two cents.

You're forgiven. I consider this as a youth sin. You didn't know any better. Maker's Mark with coke? That's pitty. It's been several years since I last had a Maker's Mark but I still think it's a great bourbon.

Thank you. Yeah pretty much a youth sin. No I didn't. I haven't had Maker's Mark since than tho. Mainly been SMS or other spirits like tequila and vodka.

I've tried to mix coke with vodka but it gave me a terrible headache. For some reason I can't take a vodka. Not to worry. There is plenty of whisky to live on. :)

Vodka and coke sounds rather disgusting. I usually drink it on the rocks. Well there are a lot of people who can't take vodka. Yes there definitely is.

As bizarre as it may seem, I have an answer to this question:
100point wrote:What do you say is the best Whisky To Drink With Coca Cola or Pepsi[?]


Cola drinks are fairly assertive on their own, so you need an assertive whisky as a complement. Forget the Lowlanders, the Speysides, the Highlanders, the Bourbons, the Ryes, the Canadians...forget everybody.

You need the cheapest rotgut available: that way, you wont cry in your drink for wasting a $20 dram mixed with crappy cola.

I am warning both of you. Georgia moon with coke is a bad idea! Actually, Georgia Moon is a bad idea period :shock:
You actually could ruin the coke with Georgia Moon, had it a long time ago think I mixed it with coke quite disgusting. Not sure what you would mix georgia moon with. I think the toilet would be a good idea or polish a chrome bumper :P

The only alcohol drink I mixed with coca cola is rum. And that was when I was very young and the objective is to get drunk quickly. I dont like the sweetness of cola.
