secret santa THANK YOU

would like to thank my secret santa for the bottle of laphroig, the stogie, and the matched pair of aged rib eyes (shipped fresh, no less).

i thought the limit was 20 bucks. i hope you are happy with the potholders i sent. they were nearly brand new, too.

thank you again. enjoying the cigar and scotch after a fine dinner of steak.

i hope you pick my name next year too

    A true love would have sent you Balvenie. Laphroaig is like sucking on a burnt sponge that sopped up salty bog water. ;)

    I like salty bog water ,,, but then I drink bud :P
  • Laphroaig - West coast Single Malt - Too "Peaty" like many from the west coast - like sucking on Cowboy Lump

    Balvenie, Knockando - Smooth

    McCallums - 18 year - real smooth, 25 year is like gold

    :ohmy: :pinch: :sick:
  • Having traced my roots back to that area of Scotland, I thought maybe I should try Laphroaig. You're right, tastes like lump made from peat. Couldn't have been MY ancestors who invented it.

  • laphroig is very phenolic. like the taste of a billiard ball, like from a ball gag.

    i mean, from what i hear, anyway.
  • a real man finds merit in all scotches. except the cheap crap i bought last night! 10 yr glenmorangie.

    was like cheap vodka with an orange crayon dipped in it.

    i like the peaty, smokey stuff. hell, i like mosst of them. like women. sure, there are some more attractive than others, but at the end of the day, a woman is beautiful in her own right.

    I never said it wasn't a good scotch...but it is certainly not for the scotch novice or the faint of heart.

    once i tasted the macallan 18 year old single malt, the search ended, that stuff is too good. :) i dont want to try the 25 year old stuff, B) sometimes its not good to know what your missing :laugh:
  • fishlessman,

    You got that right. I learned some lessons with good Port a few years ago. Can't spend less than 100 on a jug now.

  • i hand you a line like "tastes like a ball gag" and that is your response?

    tsk tsk tsk.

    first, CW tees one up for you in asking for a name for his 'Q, and you respond with (GASP!) actual frikkin solid business advice. then this.

    please don't tell me you have stopped drinking at work now too.

    yep, ports are one of those that i capped off at about 60 bucks and didnt dare go higher. :laugh: i try to stay out of that section as much as possible unless im making a quick matues run. im no wino and i dont consider port to be a wine
