Don't mind it, I prefer Hankey Bannister myself, though.

I do know that Hitchens drinks Johnny Black, be careful or you might end up as a drink-sodden-trotskyite-for-war.

I went through a bottle of Glenlivet of xmas. very very nice.

The blue doesn't justify the price tag.

^ still, id love to say ive had a bottle of blue.

id like opinions on what others think is a good cheaper scotch. I am into Grant's atm, as its generally available for around 30 bucks, and is much smoother than other cheaper bottles

I've had a funny journey to finding my favourite drink.

I went from scotch, to bourbon, to rum, to white wine (sav blanc, semillon), to red wine (shiraz, pinot) to cider, and now back to scotch.

well i finally tried port, per ax & bonnie's suggestion. omg it was lovely! like licking juicy pretty flowers. i drank the whole bottle though, which i don't recommend, although the stories i heard of my antics were highly amusing, it's a shame i don't remember it.

the port i had was rather light in color, the label was written in such a way that suggests most ports are darker? anyway, it was fab. i highly recommend it! and thanks ax & bonnie!

Hey, you're welcome.

Dan: That looks real good, I'm going up to Queensland next week, any chance I might be able to find it there?
