    12oz scotch drinkers

    Discussion started by Æ° - Apr 22, 2005

    I enjoy drinking scotch.

    And although I always keep a bottle on hand I seldom drink it, but maybe more frequently during the winter months.

    This is my standard; because it's reasonably priced and tasty single malt.

    [​IMG]
    This is another one I'll buy sometimes. It's blended but still good, and pretty cheap.

    [​IMG]
    I usually don't treat myself to the expensive stuff, but I was lucky enough to get one of these bitches for my birthday a couple years ago. It's unlike anything I've ever tasted before and was almost unpleasant at first. But as soon as you remember this stuff is over $200 a bottle you can't help but keep drinking. Blue label was the shit that made me realize the gigantic difference only a few years will make when it comes to scotch.

    [​IMG]
    I've bought this stuff a few times, but it's a little spendy so they're few and far between. If I could afford it I would drink 15 - 18 year all the time, I think it's the sweet spot for single malt.

    [​IMG]
    This is the 'already drunk' scotch, definitely not something you want to start the night off with. I'll get this when I'm in a mood at the bars, no use spending $10 for a drink you'll be slugging down shots of jager with.

    I just cracked a bottle of the 12y/o glenfiddich that's pictured at the top.

    I don't venture outside of the johnnie walker/glenfiddich circle much, so if there's any other scotch drinkers around, share with the rest of the class.

    If you like scotch then you might dig it,
    but if you love scotch then you will love Cardu.

    What I'll usually do is take a few ice cubes in the palm of my hand and smack them with a tablespoon. I like a little crushed ice with my drink.

    when it comes to drinking (properly), money should be no object.

    if it is, you're an amateur

    Excess in moderation...

    I throw down the cash now and then, and in that case a strip club and scotch is always in the equation.

    at first glance I thought this said "12oz crotch stinkers"...

    but while we're here, anyone want to explain to me the difference between scotch, whiskey, and bourbon?
