This is what I'm drinking tonight but it looks like I might run out by the 5th inning.   :smh:



Were you buzzed when you took the picture?   It's awfully wobbly.   I find that resting the camera on an arm rest gives the camera user a sturdy perch to take a focused picture when you're plowed.

Actually I was only on my third so I was fine.  :rofl:

We had a couple of shots last night at Justin's, called Fireball shots.  Tasted just like fireball candy.  These could be very addictive

picked up a bottle of this in duty free in Mexico last week, very very good either straight up or in a Paloma.

My 21 year old niece and her mother apparently like some stuff called Moscato?  I had to pick up a couple of bottles of that along with 10 bottles of two-buck chuck for Thursday.  That stuff sounds like boone's farm with less alcohol. :spaz:

It's a sweet desert wine.

Anyone ever have Fireball whiskey?  Picked up a pint while at the liquor store.  I wanted some drinkin' liquor but was too afraid to spend money on Scotch that I wouldn't like.  They didn't have any small bottles of Wild Turkey, only half-gallons, so I got the Wild Turkey 101, hope its serviceable.

My friends swear by Fireball as their go-to campfire hootch.  Never tried it myself, but it can't be any worse than some of the distilled death I had in Indonesia last month.  As for scotch, JW red might be the best value out there...Famous Grouse sucks ass in comparison

I saw Famous Grouse.  And "leperhoaig" or something like that but that was $100.  I thought Johnny Walker was considered bottom shelf and crappy :shrug:

That's 'Laphroaig' (la-FROYG), a single malt from Islay - definitely an acquired taste because of its incredible smokiness (I rather like it though).

Fireball is awesome - but I can only handle a little at a time

Serviceable?  By far the best of the mid-range American bourbons to my taste.  Beam is coarse, something about Jack Daniels never quite worked for me, but Wild Turkey fits the palate a little too well. 

If it's too strong for you you can always cut it with vermouth, a dash of bitters and a Maraschino cherry.    :twisted:

The Heathrow duty free is like the world's biggest candy store if one likes single malt scotch.  Too bad the U.S. duty free limit is only a litre.

The 101?  I like the regular stuff but not the 101.  I'm not one to do shots so I wanted something good enough to just sip.

Neat or on the rocks?

Yes, quite good, though more expensive than the regular 101.

Dilutes it too much for my taste. I also tend to pour a sizable amount and sip it over a long period of time. I really like it with a hoppy ale.

I like it chilled a bit, and usually whiskeys sit up behind the bar so patrons can see the selection, not chilled to 55 or so.

Hah, I actually have a set, but keep forgetting about them buried in the freezer.  You do really have to remember not to bite down on them.
