    Irish and Bourbon = good.

    Scotch = good for cleaning paint brushes in.

    Not the good ones, I hope!
    I do use a digital device in my photographic pursuits when necessary.
    When someone rags on me for using film, I use a middle digit, upraised.

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.
    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 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 am beginning to resent being referred to as 'half-fast'.
    Whatever that's supposed to mean.

    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.
