Epic fail weekend

Friday night my korean burgers turned out horrible. The only reason I didn't throw them in the garbage was the Nashville Predators called and needed more hockey pucks. Still determined to cook i made or attempted to make pizzas. The dough came out flatter than the Oklahoma landscape. On top of all that I picked up a bottle of Islay scotch only to find it taste like the time I passed out in the flower bed and woke with a mouthful of mulch. Needless to say my neighbor received a free bottle of scotch. I'll stick with the Highlands.

Still, had fun and learned a lot. Football and PBR and golf with Jake saved the weekend.

    A fellow I used to work with was a major Scotch afficianado. Could identify 9 out of ten different bottles by taste. I'd had a few different single malts, and asked him what was his favorite. He replied Laphroaig, but mentioned that many would find the taste overpowering. I suppose I should have thought about that when I bought a bottle of 10 year. I have to admit that while I did eventually finish the bottle, I never acquired a taste for it.

    As for pizzas, tho' my wife says mine are OK, I'm consistently disappointed. I suspect I would have to get as big as a house eating my failures before I finally figured out all the ways I can screw up.

    Oof. That's my favorite scotch. Too much peat for you?

    the only way to acquire a taste for Laphroaig is to drink a bottle of mcClellands islay first
    :)) it tastes like someone was putting out cheap cigars for a week in a sifter of Laphroaig :D you should have just kept it on the shelf, you seem to aquire the taste of different scotches as time goes on. scotch has been strange for me, i simply cant stand an ice cube or more than say a drop of water in a glass

    Henapple, remember I said I poured it down the drain? I would not even give it to anyone I know. SMs are so unique in taste.

    No worries, bro. Dust yourself off and live to egg again!

    About the scotch - Laphroaig is an acquired taste for many. I'm not too much of a fan of the very peaty scotches either, but like them every once in a while to shake things up. There's plenty of choice out there, so stick to your (scotch) guns and try as many as you can!

    I fell in love with Woodford but Glenfiddich is better IMHO. Of course it cost more.

  • a lot of people depressed about their pizzas, what would you say is the biggest disappointment?  My problem was raw doughy tasting crust and I think I figured out the secret...
