Taste good? It tastes like sucking a good whisky out of an old oak table.

Pass.

Scotchy, scotch, scotch. Here it goes down, down into my belly.

The only thing wrong with this is I'm not going to be drinking any of it.

Would go great mixed with cherry coke

I like to have scotch about once a year, and that's when I save up and order something good. Anything with a red label on it tastes like peat bog and isn't worth consuming.

Mountain Dew you heathen.

And not that regular swill either, we're talking the high class Mountain Dew Throwback with the real sugar.

You better only mix this with name brand Coca Cola, none of that Sam's Choice crap.

I only use Shasta's Diet Chocolate Soda for mixing with scotch. Nothing but the best for me.

Only in theory can it be both. Once you act toward either end, it automatically precludes the other. There is an adage... something about a German cat trying to eat cake...

Really should be the only comment, then lock the thread

subby, note that the scotch in this story was barrel aged that entire time, and just bottled recently. So unless you're claiming that one should buy their scotch in a barrel and age it in optimum conditions for 5 decades, this story doesn't really indicate any form of investment opportunity.

Heathens abound! Away with you all!

I love scotch, but I'll be damn if I can pronounce half of them. My latest favorite is an Islay called Caol Ila. If you heard me trying to pronounce it, you'd think I had a very recent head injury.
 
2012-10-29 12:53:15 PM
I believe it's pronounced "kall eela" and it is tasty.

Love scotch, think "older" is overrated. Can't tell enough difference between most 12 and 18 year olds to justify the cost difference.

Agreed. While I am always leaning to a nice Islay if one is available, the Glenmorangie 10 is an outstanding drink and I wouldn't change a thing about it.

Cheers!

Works great if invested toward getting a greenlight.

It's a logarithmic curve, where price is the X and taste is the Y. Beyond 20 years or so you're spending sh*tloads of cash for a minor taste payoff.

Actually, "X" could also be age.

"We examined the cask every six months to check the quality, the taste, the developments and changes the spirit was taking on its aging voyage,' said chief blender Andrew Rankin... only a dozen bottles of the liquid gold exist."

By examine, I assume you mean 'got super loaded on the good stuff'

Don't defile Scotch with politics.

/underage drinkers and adulterers, however, are on topic
 
2012-10-29 03:05:36 PM
when i scotch it's not for the flavor it's for the effect.

/passed out on the lawn. again.
 
2012-10-29 03:17:51 PM
For the last time: that "aged 20 yrs" bottle that you've been saving for the last twenty years is not now a "40-year-old" scotch!

scotch, served neat. not the really good stuff, but just something decent.
it really is the best thing ever.
smoking a briar pipe of some good quality tobacco while sipping a glass of neat scotch is...well, really it's what life is about.

There's a real tasty single malt from Virginia you might like - Wasmund's.

Its taste is much milder than Scotch (much of the flavor of which comes from peat). Wasmund's is aged in oak barrels with apple wood chips.
 
2012-10-30 12:51:39 PM
(milder than single malt scotch, that is)
 
2012-10-30 08:48:26 PM
Great investment? It's fungible.

The thing I love about Scotch haters is that it means more for me.
