The Booze Thread

Postby D-Day » Mon Sep 19, 2016 2:54 pm

Stopped in at Two James after TdT 15, where I met a good friend from HS who also did the ride. Gotta say I was a little skeptical of what to expect given the hipsterification of Corktown of which Two James is kind of emblematic, but ho-lee shit. Drinks were outstanding. Friend bought me a bottle of Grass Widow and is it ever good. Not sure it's $60 good, which is what it cost, based upon what I can get for that price here on the Southern OP, but it is outstanding

Looking forward to going back

Good booze? I hope to get some: I'm in San Diego for a few days of meeting fun and am counting on someone with more stripes than me to pick up the tab. Hoping to do some exploring around the high end of the Dewars' line ( in keeping with an earlier theme). If not, well, I've not died of thirst yet...

Good man, I hope you had quite a few Hoover Specials for those of us out of town.

I'm changing planes at Heathrow on my way to Rome in a couple of weeks and will have some duty-free time whilst I wait. Any suggestions on decent, not so smoky, Scots whiskey I might want to pick up? Preferably something that's hard (or impossible) to find in the US of A?

When I want a non-smokey scotch, I like Dalwhinnie. I know that it can be purchased in the US of A, so it doesn't meet all requirements, but damn if it is not the smoothest single malt out there.

Got this as a gift from my brother-in-law and finally cracked it open last night. Not bad. Not bad at all.

There some very good whiskies that come out of Japan. Suntory, the brand pitched by Bill Murray's character in Lost in Translation, is an excellent Asian interpretation of Scotch. It's not a cheap date, though.
Soon I discovered that this rock-thing was true...

Windsor mayor faces online backlash after gifting whiskey to Michael Phelps


I thought it was a nice gesture, 850ml of Canadian Club with a personalized label and all, but if you can't handle having it in the house then just re-gift it and be done with it.

I know absolutely nothing about Michael Phelps relationship with booze, but I do know a lot of people who can't handle having it in the house and it would never make it to the regifting phase. It would be gone before they got it into the aforementioned home.
That said, I'm guessing the mayor just wanted to give him something that Windsor is famous for and unless Phelps wanted to go to the ballet, the choices are limited
