Ardbeg is one of my favorite distilleries. Their Uigeadail is fantastic. The space Uigeadail might be good as well, who knows!

Gotta love the Hobo brand dental floss. When your teeth get in the way of sucking space tubes, choose HOBO brand space dental floss!

Don't know what subby is drinking, but if it's Ardbeg it's whisky, not whiskey. It's not just a spelling thing, it actually differentiates where it comes from. If it's Scottish it isn't whiskey.

/ Bunnahabhain for me.

"What is this?"
"It's....... it's ...... uh..... it's green."

Subby, this seems like a fantastic headline and article, but fwiw (not much), I've stopped clicking on HuffPo and ABC links because of their abuse of autoplay video.

Ardbeg describe the flavor as sweet and creamy with fudge, smoked apricots, ripe banana and spices with a smoky but sweet finish.

Oh yeah? Let me try that......Hmm, tastes like whiskey.

T-minus whenever it feels right...

It's Scotch. No "e".

Ardbeg describe the flavor as sweet and creamy with fudge, smoked apricots, ripe banana and spices with a smoky but sweet finish. The nose is said to feature spicy toffee notes with hints of tropical fruit.

Perhaps its because I'm not in to peat, but the last time I sampled Ardbeg, all I smelled and tasted was woodsmoke and the pungency of alcohol.

With wine, my palate is decent enough to pick up individual notes but its really hard for me to detect nuances of flavor when sipping whisky straight. Is there something I'm missing?

Incredulous: It's Scotch. No "e".


Lame. Whiskey and E is a good combo at parties.

so if it were Jameson and he left it his stash there, would he fly up through space without a suit or ship to get it back?

Can you make a Pan-Galactic Gargle Blaster with it?

Yum.

Well I'm trying.

zerkalo: Somebody in Glourious Kazakhstan wanted duty-free Scotch


Someone, and I'm not naming names, but someone gave space rockets to Kazakhstan, and look what they do with them. They send up whisky. Again, though, I'm not naming any names, I'm just saying that if whoever gave them space rockets returns those rockets, no questions asked, then no one has to get in trouble. In the future, if Kazakhstan wants space rockets, they can build their own.

give me doughnuts: Scotch.


Ick.


This, Bart, this is a crazy person

"...and Natural Light became the first beer in space in late 2011 when its Facebook fans launched a can to an altitude of more than 90,000 feet."

There are two things severely wrong with that sentence.

Cometary ices really open up the flavours, I'll wager.
