We'd say about it would last until about 3pm. But only if we got a late start on breakfast.

I wonder what the math is on that amount of whiskey destroying how many livers.

That photo looks weird, almost like it was a forced perspective of a normal bottle and a woman in the background.

Let me guess, it was developed by an alcoholic for people who can pay with cans.

If I could only have one bottle, it would be that one.

Alcohol poisoning never looked so tempting.

If I'm going to die of acute alcohol poisoning, I have to admit, a single malt *would* be the way to go. Not as epic as yesterday's execution-by-mortar story, but still...

I was thinking same. I don't doubt said bottle exists, but I really don't think that's a picture of it.

Its very pretty but I think it's always lame when the results of a creative publicity bit metting is "let's make the worlds largest....."

I want! Oh, God, how I want...

Unless they pop the cork and serve it up, it could be full of pee, for all we know.

I dont like whiskey much but I want that. That single bottle would provide almost 1/3rd of the annual liquor intake, and probably tastes better than cheap vodka.

What livens up whiskey? Is it really true a few drops of water should be added to your drink, or is that a hipster thing?

And if ye been a good boy, ye'll go to Scotland when ye die. Edinburgh has a lot of great attractions, and the Scotch Whisky Experience is one of the best.

It's whisky, people. Whiskey is the imitation made in America.

Looks to me like a little of both. Like, yeah, it's a big bottle, but not bigger than a woman.

I've often wondered about that...I've not done *that* much research, but if all of
the whisky distillers use "used" American oak casks for aging, there had to be a
time when whisky wasn't "whisky", right?

Chicken and egg, and all that...or did somebody just pop off to NA, grab a few
trees, char them after making a barrel, forget to mention that they'd discovered
the New World(TM), and just kept moving along?

And yes, I love whisky. Some whiskey is quite good too.

Oh right - through all that they'd have to infuse the barrels with corn whiskey,
as well...forgot about that bit...it's not just charred white oak....

Not all distillers use American barrels. Traditionally it was sherry casks that were used and now a lot of casks come from France. It has nothing to do with place of origin for the casks, just that they should be oak.

For some reason, this made me think of the Mitchell and Webb corner store skit, with the upper-class alcoholic buying his morning drinks.

For that garbage the Scots make only Mountain Dew can repel the putrid flavor.

I must not be drunk enough, because that pic looks fake as all hell
It looks like the bottle was put on a piece of wood, right in front of the camera, with the lady standing on a carpet in the background

On please. One thirds of a bottle of Makers Mark will mess up one Mod to the point of passing out and crashing into a server.

I know it's true, I've seen the picture.

That's a bit over 140 fifth's...smuggle that into Alaska and you could make almost $13k.

No, I think they prefer Bourbon.

Forgot about the sherry casks. Thanks for reminding me.

We're gonna need a bigger bottle of Mountain Dew.
 
2012-10-26 10:38:41 AM
Right. We need some long bendy straws, a step ladder, baby oil several lengths of rope, a kitten and some diet coke.

That's sort of how I felt. If the bottle is 4'9" and is on a pedestal like in the photo, that would be a short girl.

Yeah, it's both. The model is probably around 5'8 to 5'10 (Baseline for guess: assume the heels are 2 to 3 inches, extrapolate), and the bottle is about 4'9. It's maybe two or three feet in front of her, on a slight pedestal.

But there is a lot more oak in America than there is in all of Europe.
