    man, I used to empty 2/3 of them scotch bottles during weekdays and show up to work...not all there.
    Good thing I stopped that.

    Easily explained. They both impart stiffness to soft tissue.


    I'm no Scotch expert, but have recently taken to Islay malts with a passion. Started with Laphroaig Quarter Cask, transitioned to their PX Cask (which is barrelled in old Pedro Jimenez sherry casks - lends a terrific sweetness to the finish. I'm a big fan of this one.)

    Recently I was at a duty-free store with Laphroaig on my mind. In a hurry, I picked my poison, reached out, grabbed, paid and left. Only when I got home did I discover that I had in fact purchased Lagavulin 16yo. This is known as "serendipity".

    Alas, the Lagavulin disappeared all too quickly. So tonight I'm sipping on Bowmore. Not the greatest Islay, but not bad either. It's all they had at the liquor shop, hidden among bottles of Johnnie Walker Lord Fauntleroy Limited Edition and other overpriced crap.

    Lagavullin 16 is still one of my favourite whiskies, even after having been in Scotland for a while now and trying everything they have to offer (within reason).

    Man, I miss the days of drinking half(?) A bottle of Islay Laphroaig 18 and waking up with liver pain and kidney pains. Gone are them days.

    Now I just stick to green tea and camomile tea. Sigh

    the who?
    I don't wine but when I do drink I go Ruffino Chianti Classico. Has a very smooth buttery after taste. I swoosh it around in my mouth and I gargle to get the full taste of the wine.

    Not the worst vodka flavor.

    By far, that title goes to Absolut "Peppar"

    You will gag immediately
