Its the hot weather. I've switched up to my summer time base of Vodka. It goes so much better with juices, gatorade and the like rather than whiskey.

Vodka is pointless. If we're talking clear liquors, I'll take gin or rum.

I assume you're talking about cask strength. I usually favor Bourbon over Scotch simply because the former has a plethora of barrel strength bottles to choose from. Nothing like ending the day with a glass of 100+ proof whiskey with just a drop of water in it.

Laphroaig is the tits! I love Islay whiskies. Got some Oogie in the kitchen cupboard and you've just reminded me to have a big glass in front of the fire tonight. Thanks.

My brother just visited from NZ and got some Green Label duty free. Been enjoying that lately. Nice to get home from work, have a cigarette and sip some scotch in the afternoon sun.

Also enjoying Moosehead beer lately.

Guy I know makes this on his wine farm as a side project. If there's a more effective liquid panty remover in existence, I've never (ahem) come across it.

Gotta start somewhere, but if you end up liking scotch I'd wager that you'll be moving away from johnnie walker products sooner than later. As a starter you might like MacCallan's which is aged in sherry casks and sweeter and easier to drink than some of the smokier stuff however, once your palette developes and you start to appreciate scotch you'll enjoy the smokier offerings.

Personel favorites in no particular order: Ardbeg, Talisker (mmmmmmmm), Bowmore, Lagavulin and Glenmorangie (madiera wood).

I very nice blended scotch is Té Bhéag (pronounced Che-Vek) but it may be harder to find. Very good price though.

Great choice of whiskies - Ardberg and Lagavulin are favourates as are the 3 extra matured Glenmorangies (Quinta Ruben, Lasanta and Nectar D'Or), but my top one is

As a short back story, I myself have never been much of a drinker or even interested in it even at 23, I'm limited to having tried a couple swigs of Miller Lite (yuck) really lol.  But anyone I've met who doesn't know that about me always says they pictured me as the guy at the bar who would be drinking wine (seriously...wine at a bar?) or drinking a glass of expensive whiskey or scotch. So I figured I'd try some for the heck of it. Kind of a stupid leap from pi$$ water to scotch but you only live once.  Aside from that I just bought my brother in law a bottle of 12 year reserve Jameson (he's Irish) for christmas that I might try with him, and I actually am sitting on a bottle of JW Blue until a good friend comes down for possibly new years. The last part is semi an inside joke because we both love Burn Notice and the main character in one of the earlier seasons mentions that he only drinks Blue. But he also let me stay at his place last year when I volunteered at the PGA at Whistling Straits, so its a bit of repayment as well :P

For now I'll stick to my Goose Island root beer and some pizza and a book :P

Not that I get uber depressive or anything, but I'm a career bachelor, live alone, totally not wealthy etc, so yeah, I tend to enjoy the drink from time to time. The times are getting further and further apart (live alone, remember? got bills to pay!)

But tonight, I'm on the ol' Wild Turkey, 86.8 proof. It gets the job done.

Montreal Canadiens just traded Jaroslav Spacek for Thomas Kaberle, so yes, I will definitely be drinking tonight....

Just have to decide between whisky or anti-freeze!

    • They're playing 16 games in each match though. Don't need much of an advantage before that number of players significantly loads things in their favor. The other team has to win 8.5 games to beat them. At a 65/35 split, that's a lot and pretty unlikely (about 10% of the time).
    • Why does the second sentence have to be true? If they're used to playing a tough course that's improperly rated, they're going to both have inflated indexes and have higher skills relative to them. If their home course features a variety of different challenges, I don't see why their game wouldn't travel well. And on the flip side, some courses and their members take pride in how hard their course is and how tough it's rated, and that bit of vanity ends up hurting them in these kinds of competitions.
    • I discussed it today but can call back and re-confirm.  I would love to be wrong on that point. Note: That may have been before they changed the hotel due to lack of room at Hampton Inn. Update on Friday Hotel: If I can give a count to EagleSticks they can get us a discount on Friday night at the hotel.  I do not have the $$ but should be much lower than the $249 the hotel quoted me. I do not have my list with me for the Friday hotels but if you want one, please post ASAP and I will get the rate and get them held. Thanks @billchao for catching this.
    • There are plenty of amazing things people are doing every single day, but if other people don't care about it, nobody is going to notice. LPGA is not popular that popular, so despite the great achievement, is not getting any attention and is going to be forgotten very soon. On the other side, if tiger farts louder than normal we are definitively going to know about it because tiger is popular.    
    • @StuM when I called the course a couple of months ago they said you can mention that you want to add an extra night to the hotel when you book the package through them and the people who are in charge of the stay and play can handle it, did you ask them about that?
