Blends...

(shudder!)

Ya, I have a drinking problem. I can't afford GOOD scotch. Lagavulin is about $80 a bottle.

Once you have Lagavulin, you never go back.

I just think of blends as a different drink. All is good.

Due to the newly screwed-up state of alcohol sales here in WA State, our vast selection of fine whiskies has dwindled down to an assortment of Canadian blends. I'm staring at a pair of bottles of blended Canadian whisky right now: Crown Royal (gag!) and Pendleton, which actually ain't bad. Last week I choked down a bottle of Seagram's 7 Crown, and while I was able to finish it, I won't be going down that rutted and potholed road again. My favorite, Cragganmore, shot up in price from $45 to over $80 when we misteakenly passed the Costco-sponsored liquor privatization law last year. Laphroaig, Lagavulin, Talisker, all gone beyond my means. Balvenie Portwood (another favorite) isn't even available around here anymore.

Uninformed voters suck. So does Crown Royal.

The chickens in the shot I posted are Barred Rock and what's usually referred to as easter egger chickens. They produce blue and green colored eggs, whereas the Barred Rock chickens produce the usual brown eggs.

Irish and Bourbon = good.

Scotch = good for cleaning paint brushes in.

Crown Royal and Seagrams 7 are rye whiskey's, not to be confused with single malt Scotch or Irish whisky. It is meant to be drunk with lots of ice and some coke, rarely straight up. Hopefully it was at least cheap :)

I've been drinking Maker's Mark for 20 years almost exclusively. For no good reason. I simply must try new things.

Hard liquor trumps poultry every time! Let's keep the conversation going.

I've known a few people who thought that about themselves...

I prefer my single malts neat, though (prompted by reading whiskey reviews) I occasionally splash some spring water in just for a change. Seagram and CR are rye? I had no idea. They needed a larger splash of water to make them palatable; toilet water worked well for that. When I was in my early 20s I got roaring drunk once on rum and coke; now I cringe whenever someone suggests that diabolic brew. I use Makers Mark for cleaning out my pipes. Woodford's Reserve is the only bourbon I've found drinkable.

I've been eyeing Woodford's Reserve forever. Will try it soon.

I had a similar episode in my misspent youth, but with Captain Morgan's Spiced Rum. Makes me cringe and vomit just thinking about it. So does thinking about the girl I ended up with that night, but that's another story entirely.:cry:
