Re: Whisky and Alcoholism

Parvus your laughable response is typical of someone that is so blinded by morality that you haven't the common sense to figure out anything for yourself. The idea that cannabis is toxic is as rediculous as the "Reefer Madness" movie. The simple fact that there is no way on earth to injes...

Tobacco, alcohol and marijuana are all 'toxic' drugs, and all can be abused by a serious, potentially lethal amount (tho activel...

Re: What are you drinking now?

My trip to the liqour store was a bit of a disapointment, no Ardbeg 10 on the shelf, so I reverted back to my old standard Dun Bheagan Islay. The discovery of some Yaluma Mawson's Wrottenbully Cabernet-Sauvignon in the vintages section more than made up for the Ardbeg letdown. The full on peat and c...

Re: Canadian rye drinkers

I did enjoy most of the Canadian rye whiskys straight or with a dab of water in my youth, but now I realize there is much better fare. Canadian rye whisky is nothing more than barrell aged vodka and although scotch whiskey is double the price it is well worth not looking back. No matter what variati...

Re: What are you drinking now?

I let the whiskey touch my lips and I tasted it, found it to be sweet and friendly and beconing deeper involvement. I then let the whiskey dance on my tongue and touch my palate, the smokey medicinal flavours gave way to fruity notes, just too many flavours to discribe. A fleeting moment that just h...

Re: Dalwhinnie 15 Years Old

Any SMSW as smooth, drinkable and with a character that is consistantly recognizable as Dalwhinnie deserves a score of at least 90 IMHO. Understated in my view, but not underappreciated by any means.

Re: What will you drink on New Year's Eve?

SMSWs diverse flavours are made to be savoured.
Champagne is overrated, the taste and effect can be easily duplicated by carbonating a cheep bottle of stale chardonay.

My favourite, the best bargain SMSW IMHO, Dun Bheagan Islay 8y.o., at $45 nothing else comes close until you get to $75 and up range. If its an unpeated mainlander then Dalwhinnie 15 is one heck of a bargain with a smooth friendly taste.
