i'm a bit of a purist myself and feel that drinking a blend of anything simply isn't the same. i've had some of the nicer Johnny Walkers and they're good but, you know. Also it's american, which breaks rule number two. I say bring the single malt and we'll decide if it's good or bad.

i'll leave you to confer with the experts

I think part of the idea is to taste the difference from the regional malts. While Johnny Blue is no doubt a good bottle, it is a blend, which kind of takes away from the whole tasting idea. We can always use it for the "wash" between malt tastings.
What is it anyway? Fiddich? Livet? Its all good.

A little scotch to cleanse the palate, i thought that's what beer was for?

if it is a livet/fiddich/morangie we can start with that one...

To be honest I get so much liquor given to me this time of year and drink so little I don't know what treasures my liquor cabinet might hold. It will almost certainly be something better then a livet/fiddich/morangie. I'll save the Johnny Blue for another time.

Trailer for Crispin Glovers movie "What is it?"
Apparently the movie was made mostly in his backyard, and all of the actors had down syndrome.

I haven't watched those but he is pretty "Special"..I still remember when he Letterman yeeears ago, dressed in I don't know what, and he almost kicked him in the face with his giant platforms he was wearing.... I don;t think he's been back since. He was high as a kite at the time..... like waaaaay high.

Not I smoked a doobie high.

Have a great holiday Shizy!!!!

Nothing beats the SNL xmas special where Chris Farley comes out shirtless, streaming with sweat obviously coked out of his mind and ruins the whole skit but makes it far funnier in the end because of his chemical ludicrousness.

I wouldn't know if it's better. I'll save ya some as I'm really not much of a drinker of the hard stuff.
I can only enjoy single malts so I suppose my palette(sp?) can tell if it's good.

CG was full on creepy in that movie where he controlled a **** load of rats.
I wanna be a track rider, I can't wait to be able to zooom around the banks.
Does the track produce a sound like a skate ramp would?
