My hunnie and I were invited to dinner at a friend's house. They are into alcohol in a big way, and they have an extensive selection of adult beverages from around the world.

Our discussion turned to whiskies, and out came the Japanese brands Hibiki, Yamazaki, and Kujira. I'm a bourbon drinker on occasion, and I had never tried Japan's premium offerings. I liked them all, and the 20-year-old Yamazaki was my favorite. It is also the most expensive (~$1K/bottle); a little more than my preferred American bourbons, that's for sure. I won't be stocking up anytime soon :oops:

We took a quick side trip to Scotland via Macallan 21 and Dalmore 25. This is not cheap drink; they also had bottles of water from the area the scotch brands are made to mix with the stuff. Did I mention they're into booze? In a big way.

I enjoyed it all. It was even better because they are such good friends.

I have a kettle full of that stuff. I made tea with it, an hour ago. :lol:

There's a bottle of regular Macallan here, somewhere. Maybe half a bottle.... :)

Uisge Beatha....water of life.
