2 glasses sounds like something one would have over entrees, two bottles on the other hand

I knocked off 2 bottles of wine 2 weeks ago.....it was a sunday and I got some really good cheeses at the market and was making a kick ass dinner. This started at around 5pm.....next thing I knew it was midnight and was wondering how the hell that happened.

Brunello or Ribera with sheep's cheese Now if only I could afford it...

Riesling or Gewurztraminer with curry is great too.

I'm drinking Johnny Walker Black right now (out of a nice tall glass) and its perfectly fine, a solid enough blend and reasonable price, and yes, Johnny Red is antiseptic.

/I hear it has a Hitchens endorsement

You lost me at 'blend'.......

'blend' is an acronym for "we're watering down the good stuff with the shit stuff'

Are there bad single malts ? Yes.

But just go get a Macallan 12 (or 18), or Glenfiddich 18, Dalwhinnie 15, and you'll never go back to blend.

I grew up in Johnnie Walker's hometown/headquarters, been to the plant a few times too, that stuff is in contact with aluminum more than it is with oak.

I cannot JW Black without the ice. Which to me, signifies it is not a great Scotch. It is an OK affordable scotch when on the rocks.

These days I like the flavour-infused vodkas with club soda or fruit juice - pretty much a sugar-free (hang-over free) version of yummy vodka coolers and martinis.

On the wine front, I'm red all the way and prefer French...also love sangria.

Any lager with a big slice of lime or amber beer works for me on a hot summer day or après ski.

I'm WAY overdue for a boozefest!
