Correct. Ginger beer is just like ginger ale, but much spicier, more complex, and generally sweeter. They mix better with alcohol due to those notable features. Though, there is one alcoholic version called Crabbies from Scotland. It is truly wonderful!

Yeah, Ginger beer is amazing.

I normally just drink whatever year Macallan I can afford at the moment neat, but learning mixed drinks that don't insult the whiskey would be great.

Yes, a whisky subforum, not whiskey, would be great, as I would like to ask about best bang for buck choices !  :tongue_smile:

I am totally down for giving advice. Take a picture of your favorite whisk(e)y store's selection and I will let you know what and what not to buy!

Shoot that reminds me. I haven't drank yet on this lovely Saturday night. Time for some whiskey and ginger ale! :D

So you go back to the store yet and let the salesman listen to them without his gag reflex interfering?

  • Fact, beards make music better
  • I like Scotch
  • How much did you pay???
  • I will own a pair someday. My current target is the Alpha Dog.
  • Why the odd grammar of Whisk(e)y???

Whisky is the original Scotch term, whiskey is the American slang version.

Remember, we're dealing with rednecks here.

 

Yanks could never spell, nor get their wording right. Cases in point:-

Spelling.

Color instead of colour.

Vapor instead of vapoir.

Jail instead of gaol.

Aluminum instead of aluminium

etc, etc, ad hoc, ad nauseum, ad infinitum

 

Wording.

Condominium instead of flat.

Gasolene instead of petroleum

cellphone instead of mobile phone.

4X4 instead of All Wheel Drive.

Fiduciary instead of financial

etc, etc, ad hoc, ad nauseum, ad infinitum.

 

Also starting sayings such as "I could care less" instead of "I could'nt care less" is just Stoopid.

 

I think youse all gets da pitcher already, dat's swell.

You're a wag, wink. And of course, perfectly correct. ;)

Awesome story!
Whiskey and death (and headphones). For some reasons reminds me of Boardwalk Empire smily_headphones1.gif with a little less violence and a little more nerdiness. Awesome show.
I like me some smooth Jameson's, Petey Talisker , smokey Ardberg.
I need to learn more though, whiskey tasting would be cool; I think there's some groups here (Melbourne Australia).
I'd be interested to try more Japanese whiskey too I hear theres some gooduns.
Enjoy those awesome cans

Very good read, thanks!

I lol'd a few times and to the odd looks from my wife, I'd say, "no, it's just this poor bastard with headphones that smell of death"

As a side note, a guy who lived in the dorm next door when I was in uni was born without the ability to smell. I think he was near 14 years old before he and his family realized he was missing a sense. Prior to knowing, he said his mom would be home baking pizza for supper, the smell of which would aromatically be filling th house and the kids would come in the front door and she say, "Hello! Can you guess what we're having for supper?"

Jeff would take a big nasal breath in and guess, "air?"

Oh and the nick name I gave him stuck all throughout undergrad; Stinky.

My friend lost his smell last year in a skateboarding accident. He'd be oblivious when someone opened a bag of chips. XD

@mrscotchguy

 

I'm sure you've already ordered a couple pairs to last you your lifetime:

Will it be the tale of the incredibly smelly Grados in 50 years?
