And sake - especially this one (name translates to Kubota in English. I used to know a cute Jap girl whose family name is the same:

 

 

 

I know one too (not personally know)! A cute/gorgeous Filipina-Japanese with that surname.Here's Exhibit A. Possibly NSFW. :D

 

 

 

All the Kubota's I know are bright orange tractors. Yours looks a lot more fun to take for a spin.  :P

 

 

Better headlights, too! :lol:

Now I recall of another bourbon with memorable taste. It has even a song.

 

Lyrics very, very NSFW

I have to agree with Murph's "training whiskey" assessment.

"When I was a child, I drank as a child..."

I'm a huge fan of The Macallan, especially the 18. Pure awesomeness in a bottle.

As I get older, though, I find myself drinking more and more good tequila and less whisky.

Bourbon is the nectar of the gods. So many varieties across the palate- sweet, smooth, spicy, firey.

 

Been drinking quite a bit of rye whiskey as well, when I do drink liquor. A good, spicy rye Old Fashioned, just a little tonic to open it, a good twist, none of that muddled fruit/cherry shit. The perfect drink.

My opinion is, there is no "training wheels whiskey". You either like it or not, be it bourbon, blended or single malt.

 

My fav is Famous Grouse.

Grouse is a good value malt, no doubt.

 

By choice I would choose Grants, though.

Grants is my second choice if Grouse not available. :)

Don't drink much whiskey because of the horrible hangovers it causes to me but my favourite so far is Isle of Skye which is smokey but milder than Laphroiag, more suitable as 'training wheels' whiskey at least for me. I'm not big fan of Johnnie Walkers etc but then I have only tasted Red & Black label.

Tequila, I love tequila (or Ter Kill Ya as some call it), but it does not love me back.....

 

 

For better results, stick with 100% blue agave tequila.  The reason shit like Cuervo Gold makes you feel so bad the next day is because It's a mixto, which has grain alcohol and coloring in it.

I've gotten staggering drunk with 100% agave tequila and felt great the next day.

The last time I drank Cuervo, Jose beat me to a bloody pulp.

Hornitos is a good quality tequila at a good price (less than $40 for a half gallon at Spec's).

Stay away from the clear, non-aged stuff period too IMO. Quality, non colored, only agave based sipping Tequilas are great. Not quite the breadth and complixity of Scotch's, but still lots of palate.

I just enjoyed a rather nice dram of Jamison's Irish, my favorite tipple.

even worse. 2 U$D for chunks of frozen tap water?  :blink: 

 

What is "neat"? (I guess something cheap to rip off even more money)

 

 

 

 

 

training wheels whiskeys. hmmm. Well anything Lowlands or Irish are pretty safe. Japanese are also very mild.

This is my go to whiskey.  I call it whiskey for people who usually don't like whiskey.
