    OMG - not to be too teenage girly about (being a late 20-something yank), but... wow. the smoothest. buttery. medium smokey. lots of peat. i've been ruined.
    sorry this doesn't have much to do with religion or spirituality, except to say that it was a fairly religous experience.
    ohhhh. to sip it again with a macanudo in my hand. PLEASE GOD!!!

    that would be amazing. may be i had to much... air... before he got out the big blue box, broke to seal, pulled out the bottle, de-corked it, poured it into a glass and handed it to me. may be the fumes of the non-existant beverage effected so that the pamphlet that came with the bottle was not actually in my hand... oh nevermind. i don't want to continue the tangent.
    i don't want to argue the existence of this ambrosia. i just wanted to share the experience with some gamers and spiritual enthusiasts like myself.

    I'd go bungee jumping with half that money -- a bigger kick, an NDE, hysterical screaming, all in one. 😀

    Well, you're not a scotch afficianado. Matters of taste, and all that.

    yes, i agree. there are wonderful thrills out there out side of food or alcoholic consumption, but i'd take great sushi, a macanudo, and blue label over most of them any day. call me crazy or lazy. i'm just... i don't know. decadent.

    I'm so sorry. The same thing happened to me years back when I tried Basil Hayden's. You can't go back to Jack Daniel's after that. My pocketbook has never forgiven me.

    Try it neat. It is smooth and light, and finishes strong with notes of spice and honey. It's not cloyingly sweet like Maker's or Knob Creek, and fuller and rounder than Booker's (in my opinion). You'll love it.
