I made the mistake of listening to Rolfe's review and bought a bottle. All I can say is YUK! My review would gone something like this after my initial taste: roadkill, moldy socks, old tennis shoes and just a touch of dryer lint on the tongue...now I'm getting a finish redolent of stale gym bag with just a touch of sweat. Yummy.

Hope that helps.


When I had radiation treatment and lost function of salivary glands and taste buds that is what pretty much everything tasted liked - for three months.

Reading this thread makes me glad I never graduated beyond being a beer drinker - having a drink should not be as complicated as all this sounds.

Serves a purpose, lama. It's keeping me off the Politics thread.

I agree. Nothing beats a finely crafted beer. And I don't drink that much that I need a large variety of adult beverage types to stave off boredom. Between beer, an occasional glass of wine (whatever my wife picks out) and an occasional vodka (Stolichnaya) martini, I'm content. Boring, but content.

If the Scotch ads are accurate, I'll probably never get boinked on a yacht by a bevy of supermodels. Oh well.

I should invite you, my BIL, my SIL and JG for Thanksgiving. It would be like the Jerry Springer Show.

Yes ... and their Legal Affairs Department is responsible for (among other things) "stopping any mis-representation that states or suggests a whisky is Scotch Whisky, or comes from Scotland, when that isn't the case."

They claim Scotch is worth $4B in exports a year to Scotland. And they seem very serious about protecting that.
I wonder if they have a SWAT team.

When I want to go high brow there is only one name that can possibly come to mind.......Southern Comfort, the grand drink of the South!

One of the things I've always admired about Aussies is their self-deprecating sense of humor. Years ago, I saw an interview with Malcolm and Angus Young. They were asked about a critical article written by an L.A. rock critic. Malcolm's response was: "That guy doesn't know what he's talking about. He said we've made 9 albums that all sound alike. We've made 10 albums that all sound alike."
