    PB orders this, along with a Corona, during his dinner at Texarkana with Paul Allen (in the movie). In the book, he's having dinner at Texarkana with Paul Owen and orders his J&B straight with a Dixie beer instead.

    I'm glad to see at least one American Psycho scholar on this forum! Props.

    What's wrong with Vat 69?

    I like Laphraoig and Ardbeg. I tried Compass Box Hedonism and it was good but didn't do it for me. I'm trying Caol Ila now.

    Glenmorangie 10 yr. old, but I'm more of a bourbon guy. The Islays are a little too harsh for me, but that's probably why I'm more of a bourbon guy.

    I cannot recommend Dixie beer after having one in college a few decades ago, then again it may be the perfect pairing with J&B.

    Part of the humor of the novel is that the combinations - especially in clothing and food/drink - would be ridiculous and/or disgusting IRL.

    Thanks dog. A scholar and a gentleman (I hope).

    Laphroaig is my favourite scotch - i'm sure that's what they drink in heaven. Assuming there is a heaven.

    There's certainly Laphroaig in heaven, but according to the polka there is no beer.

    Are there are any 10 years worth drinking?

    My favorite scotch is Talisker, a bold, smokey, spicey 10-year-old...

    I am partial to sweeter single malts aged in sherry and port casks rather than smoky, peaty scotches. For regular drinking I usually have Balvenie 12 yr Doublewood, Glenfiddich 15 yr Solera Reserve or Macallan 12 yr; Dalwhinnie 15 yr and Glenmorangie Portwood are very good too.

    For special occasions, the Glenfiddich 18 yr and the Balvenie 21 Portwood are excellent. So is JW Blue Label of course.

    I'm no Scotch expert, but I recall a glass of Glenmorangie that I haven't been able to get out of my mind.

    My normal drink would be JW Red ('cause that's what I have in my house) and Laphroaig (ditto), but sometimes the latter is just to peat-y for me.

    Anyone ever send in the free title to land in Scotland that comes with the Laphroaig?

    Yes, from memory all you need to do is go to their website, and enter the barcode from your bottle of Laphroaig. You join the 'friends of Laphroaig' club, and receive regular emails about how thinsg are going at your favourite distillery.

    I've just discovered a liquor store within walking distance of my house that has the best selection I've ever seen and offers 10 ml tastes served in a cellar master's glass for a nominal sum. So far I've tasted several varieties of Chartreuse I didn't know existed, several cognacs including a 70-year-old Tesseron Premier Cru, and a 25-year-old rum.

    Then I bought the Caol Ila 12 year.

    If I can find it I'll drink a 12 year old Dalmore. So far for a resonably priced single malt I have never enjoyed one more. If I can't find that then sometimes just go to a 10 year old Glenmorangie, but that may be nostalgia and price helping with that desicion. I am after all a student on a budget.....
