    Looked online and it’s up to $2,500 in places. I haven’t opened it yet, but will announce the blessed event! Cheers

      If you're not someone that hates anything different from what you're used to, you may find you enjoy it.
      I thought Crown and most Canadian blends were mostly rye? I like the Crown Black for sipping. Pendleton not bad either. I have about 2/3 of a handle of Dewars that has been sitting for a year or more. Dewars had an excellent to my taste 14 yo a while back. Haven’t seen that around these parts in a while. Some of the Islay scotches are a bit bold for some. My brother describes them tasting like a burnt-down ghetto house smells! Refined palate he has.....

        I can't handle the hard stuff, I may as well try drinking gasoline.
        My pop, on the other hand, would not touch a "blended" whiskey.
        His preferred was 10 year old J.W. Dant.
        "IF" I ever want the hard stuff, it's "Black Jack" with just a little water. I can't handle it straight up.

          Could be WAM, I don't drink much of the Canadians. Don't have anything against them, just think there's better bottles out there.

          In my parts, it's all about Bourbon these days, the new fad. $30 dollar bottles going for 150, etc. It's ok, but I just can't get my hair to stay in a man-bun, so I stick to the Scotch, with a trickle if some pot-still Irish now and then.

          If you like the Islay's (and only the best do) try a bit of the latest Laphroaig Cairdeas. It changes by year, but this release is finished in "Port and wine" casks. A but trendy, but I think it's really good. For the price they ask it should be.

          Well, off to the range. CMP dropped off a 1952 M1 the other day, and my WW2-history buff kid wants to hear that ping some more.

            Thanks, ‘Flyer. I’m not drinking much these days. Whiskey is giving me headaches, not hangovers, even in moderation. I rarely have more than 2 shots an evening. Seems like it keeps me awake in the middle of the night, too.
            Have fun with the M-1 😆

              I'm only drinking three nights a week. One double shot of rum mixed with mango/orange juice on Tuesday's and Friday's during karaoke practice. On Sunday at the bar, it's usually two rum and cokes, two or three Rolling Rock beers, and a buttery nipple shot - spread out over 4 hours.

                Got to lubricate those vocal cords to hit those Barry Gibbs’ falsetto notes in “Stayin’ Alive”!

                or a little Brian Johnson “ Thunderstruck “.....

                  Indeed, I need all the help possible. Those falsetto notes are usually beyond me. So Barry Gibbs and a bunch of others are out of my vocal range. Would really like to do "Africa" by Toto but those high notes stop me. The closest I come is in "Wicked Game" by Chris Isaak.

                  Now AC/DC is another story completely. "Thunderstruck" kills my vocal cords for the rest of the evening. However, been practicing "Highway To Hell" and "It's A Long Way To The Top" which are not as bad.

                  I have to stay away from most Motown tunes as well. PigHuntress says I sound like a white boy trying to be black. Got to know your own limits...

                    How about this one? Ties into the thread nicely.
