@OGIONIK,
I know a lot about it.

There is a culture of single malt scotches. It doesn't involve, usually, socking it away to oblivion. It is more about sipping 'neat' scotch with appreciation. Bourbon drinkers oft do the same. A controlled thing, a taste and smell move. I say this as someone who smells very little but appreciates scotches. There is really no need for more than one, or at the most, two. People who have need for blotto look elsewhere, unless they're well monied.

@ossobuco,
people keep telling me. u like scotch? how?

ur so young.

blah blah.

i had 3 tonight watching heat.

it felt, well, grand.

1 ice cube. near the end it gets a little watery.

you can taste a whole range of flavors, from pure , when some of the ice melts, and then the end when it has the most water.

i dont think i can muster up the courage to drink it neat yet, however hehe.

i have a bottle of glenlivet, ever heard of it?

@OGIONIK,
Glenlivit is an easy one, but certainly tasty. The thing with single malts - well, it's complicated - for years and years they gained power with years, though not all conisseurs (misspelling) like all years. Fairly recently, production diminished (for reasons not in my purview).

Really, the thing is not to obliterate yourself. It is to taste something good and savor it. Savor versus blotto.

@ossobuco,
I'm dissociated from scotches because I can't afford them, if I ever could.

I'd, if I were you, check out some tastes -

MacAllan, any. I've tasted some very old ones, sort of a waste as I've no nose, but I like some oldes more than others.

Laphroig - yeh.

It seems I now forget names. But if you really want to get it, Ogi, look at the regions of scotland and the virtues of their varied products - geography matters on the bottles of this and that. Age matters very much, and the folks have been caught without enough aged product, last I read.

oh yeah, i tried it neat. better than i thought.

alot of flavor. the ice desensitizes your tongue way way too much.

theirs a burning , a bit. but it was worth it.

@OGIONIK,
On your dad, he doesn't get it. Old scotches and bourbons, and, I assume much else, dunno, ports? are for sipping. It is a true waste to chug.

yeah i confronted him.

i said, dude, either your 23 year old son knows more about drinking scotch than you, or your an alcoholic.

he started to talk and i was like NOPE. one or the other. you choose.

heh. but damn, i cant afford another bottle i had about 7 glasses total.

fuckkk.

getting home and having a glass of some good scotch, thats heaven.

especially after a day of hauling 400 and 3 hundred pound tables and bunks.

Had a boss who would bring me a finger of Laphroiag in a china teacup if we were having a tough day at work. Great Boss!

Re: drinking it -- Scotch neat, water on the side. Iceberg water if we're being particular. (Can't afford it either, anymore, Og, oh well...)

I'm partial to Chivas Regal 12 year blended, over ice, verra nice ...
Never really done single-malt, but I like 'em.

Chivas and a nice cigar .... heaven ...

@ossobuco,
cigars are a whole whole whole new thread to start.

unless there's one already started.

i dont know if its from the media, or what but im just drawn to scotch and cigars,tea, things i think need a refined taste.

most people have 3 cups of generic coffee top get a buzz, i have a cup of green tea with ginseng honey and mint.
most people buy a mediocre bottle of vodka to get wasted.
im like, ehh i dont want to get drunk, but i want quality.
scotch? hrmm, sounds right.
most people buy marlboro lights or reds or someshit and smoke a pack a day.

i just want a bit of flavor with a mild nicotine intake every so often. heh.




i dunno. maybe im just being elitist.

@OGIONIK,
Try Makers Mark bourbon.

And I find Jameson Irish Whiskey to be highly drinkable.
