    Wife is away at a conference in Sea Island, GA and I've been alone with the two little ones all weekend. I've earned this...

    I also like Glenfiddich Single Malt from time to time

    I had a bought with diarrhea a few days ago and felt terrible. I poured a dram of Laphroig and sipped it for about 35 mins, and damned if it didn't settle my stomach.

    Liquid gold.

    I'll have a Dewars on the rocks watching the Yanks tonite. I'll toast you. Fair enough?

    Thumbs up New hard liquer thread

    As Jets season is not far away, it is obviously a good idea to stock up on some strong beverages. So it is.
    So I will start with 14 year old Balvenie "Caribbean Cask". Aged in old rum barrels, this stuff is sweet, fruity and smooth as a vagina of 18year old blonde. It taste for me better then much more famous and 3x times pricey 21 old Balvinie. Great, great scotch.
    Surely a awesome drink after a win, after a loss I would go with some rougher stuff.

    I'll never understand why people spend big money on booze.

    Why buy a bottle of scotch for $100+ when I can buy a $30 bottle of Jameson or Makers Mark and accomplish the same thing?

    There is Blended Scotch and then there are single malts. Blended Scotch means a blend of around 15-20 percent Single Malt painstakingly made in small batches and 80-85 percent cheap grain whisky spewed out continuosly from a device called a Coffey Still

    Thus you are partly correct in that no blended scotch (J and B. Dewars. Johnny Red or Black... Chivas et al) are worth more than.your 20 buck
    Makers Mark or Seagrams 7 while pretty much ALL single malts are worth every penny of what they go for

    Hope this helps

    Because people who drink more expensive liquor tend to be a bit more mature than looking to get drunk for the sake of getting drunk. For that matter, you can go get yourself a bottle of rotgut or ripple and have at it as well.

    Why else would you drink?

    Even the most expensive scotch doesn't exactly taste like Coca Cola.

    You could give me a $30 bottle of Jameson and a $100 bottle of Glenlivet and I wouldn't be able to tell much of a difference. Certainly not enough to warrant plunking down an extra 70 bucks.

    You will soon enough; the good news is that things are always changing.

    The bad news is that nothing stays the same.

    Sure; it's ****ed up.




    and that's why there are $1,000 bottles of scotch

    There is a huge difference. Taste and smelling if it's floral, fruity, earthy, smoky, grassy or spicy. Then the after taste, harsh, smooth, sweet, sour, salty, bitter, dry.
