    I am going to keep this in the lower-priced range, so no 30 year recommendations please. I also lean Speyside so no peaty smoky choices.

    so, without further ado:
    1. replace the 18-year Macallan or bring in the 15-year (sherry cask)?
    2. Bring in Glenmorangie?
    3. Balvenie Dobulewood is already on the list to buy.
    Who else?

    I usually purchase at Specs in Houston (downtown) and would like to know if there is a similar spot here in the DFW area with great choice and great prices.
    You drive all the way to Houston to buy your booze . . . that's way too rich for my blood. If you fly, that's scary!! Hell, I'm a simple man . . . I thrive on Crown Royal or Seagrams Gold Manhattans with a dash of bitters straight up. My favorite dessert and meal sometimes too.

    Haven't enjoyed one in some time since I am still on a strict austerity budget.

    Sorry ladies and gentlemen, I'm not sure I get it...
    HUGE JD fan in early adult hood. Did not like scotch or beer. Never got either one for taste or pleasure. Call me trailor trash, stupid, ignorant, it's all OK.

    Later in life after joining AARP I've developed a like for Russian whiskey (although my favorite is from Sweden).

    Still try single malt and blended from time to time but don't get the thrill myself. For the cost vs benefit I'll take vodka any day. Keep the expensive crap to yourself as far as I'm concerned. Svedka works just fine for me, Sky is good also as well as Polar Bear. When vendors take me out they insist on buying the Gooses, Belvederes, etc. Literally I want to spit it out. What a scam. Total garbage with a bite, who cares... Wipe yourself with a 100 and it's all the same... (attempt at humor)

    A good friend has invited me to a tasting at his house of Scotch from around the world. Blends, single malts, and different grains. Going to take him up on it.

    I may change my mind yet, but right now, give me a middle of the road Vodka and I'm good, love watching the sunset with the chimena going and a good 16 oz filet mignon on the grill, hot tub in the background.... Ahhhhhhhhh.

    I smoked way to many years to enjoy a cigar. 4 years clean and I'm not going back, even though it does sound good. It is what it is.

    There is more out there than Scotch....

    I ain't no trailer trash . . . I couldn't agree with you more! I like me a good potato vodka the best. Monopolowa from Austria is very good and reasonaby priced.

    my youth destroyed any taste I might ever have had for Vodka. Let me just say it involved a friend of mine and I bubbling the cigar through the Vodka and drinking the bottle. I still regret that night. And haven't really had much Vodka since then.

    It wasn't guilt, I was about as sick as I have ever been.

    A bottle typically lasts me 1-2 years (unless I have my brother over ). I have family in Houston and usually make it down there about twice a year. So doing the date math you see it is not big deal to buy it there, no special trips.

    Thanks! I will put it on the list.

    Scotch drinkers are like New Army. Beer drinkers are like Old Army. New Army is ruing A&M, therefore New Army is ruining America.

    Oh JOY!!! Carbonated water tastes better and is better for ya . . . but that assumes you have taste. Haven't met too many Aggies that do . . . but that's just from all the inbreeding. Nothing wrong with beer except it bloats me and makes me fart . . . a lethal combination.

    How can you come off as "Old Army" when you graduated in 2003. That's funny or are you talking about me and your dad since we would be considered "Old Army" in your case? If so, that would equate to you being a part of what you say "is ruining America". And that statement alone makes little sense if any to me. Just sayin . . .

    "You have some 'splainin to do LUCY!"

    Back to the beer part. I drank enough beer when I was young for two lives. When I'm done with this one, I still won't drink it in my next life. I do, now and then, enjoy a good hearty beer with real taste . . . not Coors Light.

    Sip it in good health. Smooth and mellow to me. TSM (aka chhspantherfan) insists on no more than 2 ice cubes . . . head scratcher, but if anyone knows, he does.
