Johnnie Walker/ Chivas Regal etc.

Liquor in the nine days

Drinking wine in the nine days is prohibited

The רמ"א* writes, that wine vinegar is permissible in the 9 days.

The (מקור חיים (בכרך writes that the Minhag is to refrain from  חומץ יין & יין שרף           
3 days before Tisha B'av.

The accepted translation today of יין שרף is "liquor/ whiskey"

I  think** (ליבי אומר לי) that the מקור חיים was referring only to wine brandy and not malt/corn whiskey.

I am not aware of any Poskim who prohibit whiskey in the nine days

*תקנ"א סעיף י"א
