Default About Wiskey......



In 1952, Armon M. Sweat, Jr., a member of the Texas House of Representatives, was asked about his position on whiskey. What follows is his exact answer (taken from the Political Archives of Texas):

"If you mean whiskey, the devil's brew, the poison scourge, the bloody monster that defiles innocence, dethrones reason, destroys the home, creates misery and poverty, yea, literally takes the bread from the mouths of little children; if you mean that evil drink that topples Christian men and women from the pinnacles of righteous and gracious living into the bottomless pit of degradation, shame, despair, helplessness, and hopelessness, then, my friend, I am opposed to it with every fiber of my being.

However, if by whiskey you mean the lubricant of conversation, the philosophic juice, the elixir of life, the liquid that is consumed when good fellows get together, that puts a song in their hearts and the warm glow of contentment in their eyes; if you mean Christmas cheer, the stimulating sip that puts a little spring in the step of an elderly gentleman on a frosty morning; if you mean that drink that enables man to magnify his joy, and to forget life's great tragedies and heartbreaks and sorrow; if you mean that drink the sale of which pours into Texas treasuries untold millions of dollars each year, that provides tender care for our little crippled children, our blind, our deaf, our dumb, our pitifully aged and infirm, to build the finest highways, hospitals, universities, and community colleges in this nation, then my friend, I am absolutely, unequivocally in favor of it.

This is my position, and as always, I refuse to compromise on matters of principle."

I prefer cheap, American, blended whiskey. Served early and served often. I'm enjoying it now...

Franc if you haven't tried one of the three I've listed, you just have to. VERY smokey. Especially the Ardbeg 10 year. Ardbeg has some nice older scotches, and the new one is Alligator, but the 10 year old is almost like drinking liquid smoke. I can taste just typing about it!

When Ardbeg isn't available, I go for Laphroaig. But I always have a bottle of Ardbeg at home. It's something you have to work way up to in order to like it. I think you are ready!

Waybomb,

Is it as good as 14 year old cheddar? You steared me right on that one! I like scotch, been drinking it for years. Glens are good...but those you mention, better? Really....

Regards, Kirk

I have and I prefer Glenfidich. If that makes me less of a man then so be it. I'm 65 and I damm well do what I like, thank you very much.

Besides, Glenfidich, used to be one of those hardly available "special secret insider knowledge only" scotches. Now it is fairly easy to get, at least the 12 year old version. (18 is my favorite but hard to find.)

At first I was saddened by this, just as I was when Glenlivet became the yuppy rage,,,,, but as more and more drinking establishments had Glenfiddich on the back bar, I realized that as a benefit.

Other scotches I like are Inverleven, Balmore, Isle of Jura, and a blended one called "Pinch"
That last one is very peaty and smokey. You will definitely have to develope a taste for it....if you can find it anymore.

300, I don't drink Glenxxxs anymore; used to, especially Glenfarclas. Next time you are in better bar, try the Ardbeg 10yr. Laphroaig will do as well, though a bit lighter on the smoke. Lagavulin would be third choice.

Wish I had some here in Wisconsin. But then again, I'd probably become an alcoholic like the rest of 'em here.

Franc, drink what ya like man. Somebody's gotta drink that stuff.

If you want to try another cheese, completely different than aged cheddar, but oh so good, try an Italian cheese called Crucolo. It is available in the states, just have to find it.

Speaking of cheese now, a while back I bought some Gjetost.. omg!!
Delicious!
Too bad I can't find it now, as the only place around to carry it closed doors.

Lagavulin is one of my favorite drinks, but at near 100 bucks, I have gotten out of the habit. Two you might try are Caol Ila 12, a similar tasting whiskey at half the price, and another of my favorites, and Glenlivet Nadura. The latter, bottled at cask strength, is one of the few which I do add a touch of water. The current bottle I have is 115 proof. Bottled at 16 years.
