Scotch 2
« on: Sep 02, 08, 04:26:30 pm CDT »

Well met, count.

Don't just limit yourself to beer. Try the ale, mead, loki, etc. But I'll strongly recommend the peaty brilliance of pure single malt whiskey.

How now gentle folk (and not so gentle ones)?  Mmmm, single malt...aged of course.  Have you a favorite lable?

I can't wait to taste the libations again.  You may or may not know that over here we are under the restrictions of the military General Order One (GO1) which is the restriction of the possession or use of alcoholic beverages.  :'(

So I may be a bit lily-livered.  Those that know me have usually witnessed me with a wine skin and two fistfuls of ale the entire time at faire so this should be interesting.  I'll need a battle buddy to watch for cut-purses.  I'll have to skip the 'ritas at CRF if I want to walk out on my own...how embarrassing! ::)

Dude! Now you know what happened to me!  I'm in the freakin' desert (only 130 degrees here). LOL, I lost your email addy and could not get anyone to pass the message to you.  I left right after GARF in May 2007.  I'm on my way home right in time to make CRF's last w/e.

 How goes old man?

Best I ever had. Two cubes of ice opens it up 'verra whale, lad'

Balvenie 1952 / 50 Year old


 
Single Speyside Malt Scotch Whisky
This was the oldest cask in Balvenie's cellar and at fifty years old it's comfortably the oldest Balvenie ever to hit the market. The cask was filled in January 1952 and was bottled in September 2002, yielding just 83 bottles at a natural 45.1%. It is also unusual in that it is the first Balvenie to be from a single sherry cask, so obviously the flavours have a more intensely sherried edge than is normal for Balvenie, which is normally a mix of sherry and bourbon casks.

I have a bottle of Balvenie Doublewood 12 year on my shelf. Good stuff.

I don't think my scotch palate is refined enough yet to appreciate a 50 year, however.

I have made a point of educating my husband's palate since we met (he was a Crown Royal man....).  He currently has at least one bottle of an Islay at the house and probably something else....he's told me it's okay to slow down on my endeavor because he just really does not drink enough of it....

I think his Scottish genes must have been diluted too much by the introduction of the German or something....he has a woman gladly buying him $80 bottles of scotch on a regular basis and he says slow down....

LOL, my squeeze knows better, she bought me some high dollar tequila (around $80) and it didn't last long.  My pet peeve is peeps who use mixers with high dollar goods whether it be scotch or tequila or even a nice vodka (Grey Goose ftw).

So, who's a glen livet fan?

Love Glen Livet.

That and the Macallan are two of my early faves.

Bring yourself to PARF and we'll see what I can put in the flask....

(in all honesty I think he feels bad about spending that kind of money on it.....he's not used to being able to indulge in such things.....)

One of the local restaurants, which happens to be called Restaurant Local has a 36 YO MacCallen available ....probably for Cheney and his cronies....

Yep, I've gotta save up for travel next year. There are quite a few faires I'd like to make.  Aside from the honor and pleasure of making your actual aquaintance, I might get a good drink or two as well  :)

Sounds like you got a goodun there. I totally understand. I never have been able to buy myself excellent whisky. I have just been lucky, or roguish (wink, wink) enough to be there when someone else was catching the tab.

Macallen is good. One of my instructors kept a 25-year-old bottle available for after-class conversations. I can imagine the 36-year version.  Yep, I've gotta save up for travel next year. There are quite a few faires I'd like to make.  :)

Nothing implied here Ms Tink Dear, just making a statement.  I know you little but I hardly figured you for a foofy, tippy toed mixed drinker type...well u know what I mean, I hope.  Outside of margaritas, I drink most of my liquor straight.  I'm more of a wine snob anyways but that will be an entirely different thread soon.

I have to say that I have not had Macallen but at least heard of it.

I was predisposed to like the Macallan upon learning it's the drink of choice for Neil Peart.

I like Islay anything first.  I like Bruichladdich (so much so, we named the dog after it), Glenlivet to sip.  But I love love love Glenfiddich when I make my chocolate chip cookies.  Someone once told me about this and I tried it...thinking, Scotch and cookies can't be all bad.  The warmth of the chocolate melting all over my tongue and then taking a sip of Glenfiddich is almost orgasmic.  Some Scotch need a capful of water to bring out the aroma better.  Learned this at a Scotch Snob Seminar.  Just a wee bit of water enhances the aroma pleasure without compromising the taste pleasure.

That's what the ice cube is for then?  Not to chill but to enhance.
