    I rarely smoke and I'm too poor to afford scotch often, but every couple of months I like to buy a nice cigar and a bottle of scotch. There is nothing more relaxing than sitting outside with a glass of The Glenlivet and a cigar.

    *sigh*

    Good weekend.

    Please show some respect. Glenlivet is Whisky.

    Single malt scotch whisky distilled in Moray, Scotland. Where's the disrespect?

    I love a good cigar... Acid's are great, or any cigar made by Drew Estates. I don't drink scotch with it though, I just stick with Miller Lite. If I feel like being a rebel I swith to Corona beer lol

    If you'd like to offer an argument, I will be open-minded. Until then, it is one of my favorite types of scotch. :)

    hen is Scottish. Unless it's full of sheep bits, he doesn't believe it's Scottish too.

    If I don't want a big smoke, I'll grab an Acid Blondie. My favorite atm is Casa Magna.

    Blondie's are good. Right now I am on a Malta kick. If I smoke one it is one that at least takes 45 mins to 1 hr because I am so busy it forces me to slow down.

    You have a vodka that you recommend? I tried a couple and they reminded me of shoe polish. :D But then, I've tried a couple scotches I didn't like either, so I'm open to suggestions.

    Suggestions. Hmmm....well, since you ask, "When I drink vodka, I enjoy Stolichnaya." *winks*

    You can get it in some liquer stores here. Its Russian. Peeps are either dark liquer or white liquer drinkers. Darks gives me headaches. Lights not so. Stolichnaya even has a smoother taste than most. I usually just savor a shot with beer chaser, then just go out on the back porch, listen to the radio, and all just seems dandy.

    *winks*

    If I remember from my time in the pub, Vodka comes in three colour labels - Red, Blue and Black.
    If you buy red, that can encompass anything from "not bad" to antifreeze.
    Blue is better.
    Black is... I was never able to get any from the suppliers.

    Can't find any citations for it, though :<

    23 years old, huh? How much?

    At the moment, I am chewing an A. Turrent Triple Play. It is exceptional--though, admittedly, I'm a maduro fan.

    This stuff only comes around twice a year, if you work in the liquor or restaurant business its gonna set ya back around 180, if you can find it retail in a store then its gonna set ya back a bit more, around 300-320 bucks.
