If a lifetime can be likened to a day, then this is Happy Hour!
Oh. My. Goodness. I think I'm going to have to go pull the cork on the Macallans and have a good long sniff.
When it gets to be that pricey, it generally is not worth it. More times than not, the difference in taste is barely noticed by all but a a weird select few. This type of price is more about prestige and showing off than it is about taste.Besides, if you have more than a sip, your taste changes where aspects get desensitized. Drink enough and they could swap one out for another and you will have a hard time noticing the difference.
When it gets to be that pricey, it generally is not worth it.There's my understatement of the day. But there IS a difference in 12, 18, and 18+ year old whiskeys. But I hear ya: after the third refresh you might as well go back to drinkin' the usual stuff.Moogie: Macallan's is right decent stuff.
I guess if you drink enough at a time, it's all good.
Until the next day, Lou... until the next day!
I always wanted to be like my dad. Drink all night, and yet get up at 4am to get to work on time.I found out later he was a severe chronic alcoholic and wasn't a normal human.Still though, you have to admire someone who is good at what they do.WV: whappen (sounds kind of East LA)
I relate, Anon. My Ol' Man was a functional alcoholic, too. I'm glad THAT gene went recessive. I think.
Just be polite... that's all I ask.
