Tornadoes are loud.

Especially if you are clinging to a pipe in the basement when one is flying through your house.

Because that's totally feasible.

Johnny Walker Black is alright on the rocks...but...if it has to be on the rocks, it is not that good.

JOFO 10-28-2008 11:53 PM

:Pray::dance::whistle::happy:Bass Ale, in a pint, poured by a bartender from a tap.

Mm, Mmm......

Makes living easier.






Would probably make dying easier too, btw.

Enjoyed a Chimay Red last night at the Belgian Beer Cafe here. Even got a mate drinking one. Thought Beav would like to know.

A_Wanderer 10-30-2008 07:55 AM

I was eyeballing a 16 year old lagavulin today, ah to have more money.

On the cheaper side Morgans Spiced Rum is very good.

Nice. I think I've just been inspired to grab one of those big bottles of it for this weekend.

If I had any money or liver left after last night, I think I'd do the same.

I had 2 glasses of merlot at dinner tonight, which I shouldn't have done since I felt a cold coming on. Now I feel like crap.
:down:

A_Wanderer 10-30-2008 10:22 PM

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

JOFO 10-30-2008 10:24 PM

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.:reject:

RedRocksU2 10-31-2008 01:41 AM

Nice. I love red wine and cheese together.:up:

yolland 10-31-2008 01:57 AM

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

Riesling or Gewurztraminer with curry is great too.

coolian2 10-31-2008 04:27 AM

42 Below is a damn fine vodka.

A_Wanderer 10-31-2008 06:56 AM

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 :wink:

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.

Dreadsox 10-31-2008 10:49 AM

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.

JOFO 10-31-2008 10:51 AM

I've got a nasty cold......no alcohol for me this weekend.
God knows I'm gonna need some Tuesday night......:drool:

GirlsAloudFan 10-31-2008 01:39 PM

Had a few white russians last night. Delicious.

AliEnvy 10-31-2008 03:01 PM

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!

Irvine511 10-31-2008 03:46 PM

i bought a lovely looking Garnacha for the evening.

funny story.

one of my best friends is a woman of color, and she went to college in rural maine. when she was an 18 year old freshman, a 22 year old senior of her same heritage gave her one of her old driver's licenses and told her to use that to buy alcohol. and if anyone ever questioned her, she should gasp and call that person a racist and accuse him of thinking that all members of said ethnic group looked alike.

it worked.

That's hilarious, and somewhat sad.:lol: Although, I wasn't aware that there were African American people in Maine, so I guess it's understandable.

Out of these, which do you find the most satisfying? Any of them noticeably smoother than the others? I'm going to BevMo in a little while, and along with a good Belgian beer or two, I'm curious to try a nice scotch.

dazzlingamy 10-31-2008 06:39 PM

Last night i drank Bermudian Rum! A good friend is Bermudian and brought it back from a trip home to see the family. I don't know much about rum, but it was delicious and smooth and the 10 of us got through 3 bottles in an hour and a half. Hilariousness ensued.

Anyone like cider? Its my drink of choice at the moment. Red apple cider. YUM

I just got back from Costco and Trader Joe's:

Costco has Macallan 12 for 36.99, TJ has Dalwhinnie 15 for 42.99

If you're a relatively newbie to Scotch, go with the Macallan, it's the easier entry path. More of a Merlot to use a red wine analogy.

The Dalwhinnie is more complex, more of a deep-bodied Cab.

All bad scotch is blended but not all blends are bad.

And I lean towards Islay for single malts.

Well, I love a deep-bodied cab...

I just got back. Decided to go with the Macallan 12. Almost went with the Dalwhinnie 15, but figured since I'm really just introducing myself, I'd go with the cheaper of the recognized names. ;) And holy crap there's some expensive scotch! I think it was either a Dewars or Glenfidditch of some sort (not exactly sure on the name), but there was a bottle in the case selling for $680! :crack:

Need to have dinner first, but I'll let you guys know what I think of the Macallan later tonight. :)

corianderstem 10-31-2008 10:58 PM

Okay, I had no idea scotch was that expensive. :lol: I saw a Macallan 12, but didn't want to spend $50 on a bottle of booze, no matter how fine it is.

I picked up a small $22 bottle of Glenlivet 12. I wanted to try something, and barring the dreaded Johnny Walker, it was in my price range. At that moment, I wished I could have picked up the phone and called someone from here to ask if I should go with that if it's so crappy I shouldn't buy any. Oh well.

:reject:

A_Wanderer 10-31-2008 11:00 PM

We pay excessively for spirits in Australia, I have half a mind of setting up a still to make mixing spirits.

Yeah it is. Johnny Walker's not bad, haven't had it in a while.
I even named a cat after it once because it tends to sneak up on you. :wink:

:reject:

The local BevMo had the Macallan 12 for $40. I justified it by telling myself it should last for a while. A helluva lot longer than a $40 bottle of wine or $40 in belgian beer, that's for sure. ;)

And I have to say it's quite nice, too. I'm not the best at describing taste, especially in a kind of drink I'm not familiar with, but it's quite smooth, lots of honey on the front and backside, and a nice smokiness over the whole thing. Doesn't get too hot on the finish, either. Good stuff. :up:

I'll be curious to try something like the Glenlivet 12 and see if I can appreciate the differences between it and the Macallan. If I can't, then I know to save money next time around. ;)
