Last Thursday I drank four gallons of Jack Daniels in half an hour. Didn't even slur a word. I went out to dinner after that and had a triple seared Japanese Kobe steak at Chef Varley's in Las Vegas. $500 for a 12 ounce steak, but worth every nickel. I brought half a dozen buddies with me on the Gulfstream and they all loved it. But yeah, Jack Daniels is like water to me. It is a good blended whiskey for girls and children.
I am a motherfucker with plenty of cash to burn, so I usually drink $200-$300 bottles of single malt. That's my everyday drink. I drink them down like iced tea. Right from the bottle. But I must admit, I do love cracking open a $600 bottle of 25 year old Macallan Scotch and savoring it. Not just slamming it down in three gulps.
On my birthday every year I treat myself to a $1500 bottle of 37 year old Bowmore. I drink it out of a crystal tumbler that I had made special for me by Tiffany & Co. in New York. I flew out there one weekend with some sketches and a week later a crate arrived at my door with 250 of the custom crystal glasses. Those bastards at Tiffany surprised me and engraved a little portrait of me on each one. I guess that's what happens when you drop $400,000-$500,000 at their stores every year.
Anyway, yeah, Jack Daniels. It's good for rinsing out your mouth when you brush your teeth. Or filling the dog dish, or like I said, girls and children. It's not real booze so no one gets hurt.
But money isn't everything, remember that. Enjoy your simple pleasures. Be glad you don't have my problems.
I downed just about that that much Jim Beam in maybe 8 hours a few years ago and went to the bar and pulled another 8 hour shift (my goal was to drink until I was kicked out). Needless to say I hardly made it home... last I remember was telling everyone at the bar that my name was Jim, Jim Beam.
