I don't drink much. Used to drink a lot when I was younger. Nothing against drinking and I like the occasional crap american beer, but just don't drink much.
[... I encourage you, if you are ever in a high end restaurant or hotel to try it. It is really, really good.
Macallan and other Highland whiskies are great for removing bathtub ring and somesuch, but you ain't really drinking scotch if you aren't working on a bottle of Laphroaig, Lagavulin, or, at the very least, Talisker. I'll grant Balvenie a pass; someone in the Highlands actually knows how to produce some flavor. ;)
Ah, come on. I love the peaty stuff too but Macallan is up there with the very best. That is if you go with the 'traditional' bottlings that have been sherry cask aged. Balvenie Double Wood (which sounds like it should be a euphemism) is superb stuff though. I had a nice wee Caol Ila last neet though.Macallan and other Highland whiskies are great for removing bathtub ring and somesuch, but you ain't really drinking scotch if you aren't working on a bottle of Laphroaig, Lagavulin, or, at the very least, Talisker.

Drambuie is supposed to have been a gift to the people of Skye by Bonnie Prince Charlie for helping him to escape the English. Probably bollocks like. Although it is thought that years ago, when whisky tasted like shit, that it would have been common to flavour it with herbs and honey etc. and this is how things like Drambuie came about. I like a Rusty Nail which is meant to be 50/50 Scotch and Drambuie but I prefer it 2 parts whisky, one part Drambuie. I do quite like a Drambuie on the rocks too though when the mood takes me.I hate whisky Danny, only tried it once, but since you are recommending that one so highly then I will - maybe:)
As for trying it in a high end hotel or restaurant; hate them, totally devoid of life or vitality, just deadening.
ps quite like a Drambuie (does that count?) it's made in Broxburn, a wee town just about a 15 min drive from me, but picturesque it is not, unlike some of the distillery places in the Highlands and Islands.
I don't know about god, but I had a wonderful concoction tonight (a few times) that was sort of a high-octane Manhattan, without the vermouth. It was just these two things:haven't clicked on this thread for a long time and thank god i did tonight all of a sudden.
Isn't that how everyone in Boston drinks?that reminded me of a video someone sent me recently...
I've got to get to one of those Boston tap rooms. I don't think I'd like syphilitic piss, but I'll try anything.Wild Turkey is like drinking syphilitic piss straight from the tap.
It is funny what slurping down way too much liquor in very short amount of time does. I mean, not comedy funny, but something interesting to experience.
No, I just learned his name seeing it scrawled on the bedsheet hanging behind him.you'd heard of this guy before seeing that vid?
