Default Do you have a special bottle?

To celebrate a special milestone/goal/event?

I placed a bid for a project, the largest one I've ever bid. Submitted it Thursday and am waiting to hear back on it, hopefully this week. So this weekend I bought a bottle just in case I am awarded the job. If I'm not, I'm going to drink my disappointment away anyhow



I wish it was an 18 but since I have to constantly make payroll, it wouldn't be too wise.

that excrement's the explosive device, yo!

the only weird time i ever had with it was the time i treated myself to a bottle of 12 for my birthday, wound up drinking most of it in one night, and expected to have the best hangover ever the next day. NOPE. it felt the same as if i'd lushed on crappy supermarket liquor. i'm guessing the virtue of scotch is in the aging more than the distilling, heh.

today i'm celebrating getting over the effects of a concussion from a week ago. bought myself a couple beers and am having fun making myself some weird micheladas..... like V8, worcestershire, red pepper and tahini. tahini goes well with anything, i swear.

haha. i think the liquor has to be a high quality clear liquor to have a better hangover. johnny walker black has given me a so-so hangover. but tanqueray gin gives me essentially no hangover

what beers are you using for the micheladas?

just some milwaukee's best ice. it said "6.9% alcohol" on the label, so i said YUM! but it turns out to be some pretty nasty, acidic stuff. i feel like pouring it down the drain and getting a nice margarita at the cantina next door, except i've been trying to budget myself lately because i need to replace my tablet, projector bulb etc.

stupid f-cking beer.

Something called Hibiki Japanese Whiskey. I liked the way the bottle looks. It's something my dad and I are saving if the dodgers win another World Series.... before he dies

seems like some of us crave petty aggression in order to feel good about ourselves.

yet also, some of us get a certain high out of cooperation / sharing of facts... maybe even the feeling of superiority.

The Macallan 18 is my favourite Macallan but the 12 is excellent too. Over here in Canada, they got rid of the years and only do colours now like Amber. Asian investors buying all the older ones now

I bought the Macallan 30 as an investment, because some of these limited scotches have gone up +15% in the past decade, but ill probably pop it open if I ever win a big poker tourney.

In general, I like peetier scotches like the Laphroaig quarter cask, Lagavulin 16 and the super intense Octomore 7.1. All from the Islay region.

I think the Laphroaig quarter cask, pound for pound, is the best bang for your buck.
