What's your poison?

Recommended Posts

I'm a fan of single malted Scotch and/or Irish whiskey. I usually have a flask of it on my person (the O'Grady and Carlisle parts of the family would disown me if I did otherwise - of course the German part will drink anything liquid and alcoholic). That said a good 150+ proof Vodka or Schnapps has a great many medical and survival purposes besides just consumption or trade. j No, seriously ... really ... I'm not joking. OK, I don't care that you don't believe me but Vodka mixed 1 to 4 with water makes an excellent ice pack (better than store bought) and can be refrozen and reused. (and when no longer needed, PROPERLY disposed of:o )

I doubt I'll be bringing any. I'm not much of a liquor drinker in the first place. I have been told (by a buddy of mine) that I am a beer snob. I like good (expensive/unique) beer and unfortunately that doesn't go down well when warm. I don't think I could justify the cooler space for a couple of cold ones.

Jameson Irish Whiskey or Chivas Regal.

Both are good. I was introduced to Chivas Royal Salute at a time when it was older than I was. THAT was an epiphany! I've since moved on to single malteds but Chivas and Jameson are not to be refused.

Yeah, that's why I'm drinking that bottle slowly. Hahaha. Fortunately I had 5 guys who all split the cost to get it for me as a B-Day present. I'd never spend that much on scotch otherwise.

I ran across a "Scotch Bar" at a hotel in Dallas. You could buy a shot of 100 year old single malt at $150 a shot. I was tempted but I was afraid it would be as good as I expected it to be and then I'd never enjoy another scotch again. Sigh, so much excellent single malts and so little cash ..... Sounds like you have some good friends.

I should change my profile information before I say this. I always thought Jack Daniels just had a robust sound to it. Like PICK UP TRUCK or SHOTGUN. Good for those manly moments in the woods with friends.

I agree, sir. A nice ring to it. That said, I learned when I was an escort officer for visiting brass that the Army brass treated "B & B" (Bourbon and Branch) like sacramental wine; it was the drink of choice for O6 and above. So, once you get your commission, keep a stock of good Bourbon and Branch water of some type available for when the Colonel comes calling.
