I'm going to live to be 173.

I take a Laphroig booster every night, so I have death immunity.

Or Laphroaig, even.

Have you been able to get anything besides the 10 or the Select?  I have those and a little sherry cask and some 16.  I managed to get a Cairdeas last year but that didn't last long.

Balvenie is another one.  There's a shiatload of 12 now.  Last weekend, I caught some 15 on the shelf and I'm sure it is gone now.  Same with Oban...(no 14...no Little Bay - they have Distillers Ed. and I snagged a 2021 12-year Special a month ago).

If you're a chainsmoker for 90 years you may become very old.

Admit it, you're rolling already, aren't you?

Yannick Tagand, Consul General of France to the Midwest

That's either a very interesting or very boring job.

Shiat, I'm going to live longer than I want to.

I'm a bourbon drinker. Does it work the same?

No idea, but you could be the brave soul who finds out if it does.  Drink at least a shot of bourbon each day, and we'll see how long you live.  If you live to be a 100, great!  If not, well, worst thing that happens is you got to drink bourbon every day.

About the same here but truth be told I don't drink that much scotch to justify more than a few bottles of my faves anyway.  I'm fine with my L10 and Bowmore 12 but I don't have any other Islays. Balvenie Doublewood 12, Macallan CS, Glenfiddich Solera Reserve 15, and Cragganmore 12 are still easy for me to find around here. :)

I guess that what he did to earn the medal is still classified?
