Bob;
On Sandfly's most wise suggestion of making a small batch of homemade pear wine, coupled with a quick shot of my private reserve of "Crazy Susy-wine, spot remover and vegetation killer" I had the one of the wildest "visions", we Native Americans are so often having.
It was so vivid and so "life like", that I wanted to share it with you, before it faded from my memory. It was a vision of you, and of course, your lovely on your wedding day.
(I, hope, that I added the copy of this vision correctly it's my first attempt at doing so!?)

So if they don't both catch one is the marriage annulled?

Chaz will be here soon to say that the dress should be camo as not to spook the fish.

I'm not a big fan of mad dog Somehow, I end up drinking it though... I've got a few questions for you high class boozers. For what it's worth, I drink plastic bottle rum. The only splurge I make is that I refuse to drink cheap beer. I drink guinness on my own time, and bring yuengling black and tan to parties (cheap, but serviceable), and drink real black and tans at bars, as well as whatever microbrews they have on tap. I'm a beer head.

I know nothing about whiskey and other strong booze types, so I've got some questions about a bottle of scotch that I got today from a friend at work.

It's a single malt from The Balvenie. 12 year doublewood. Is it any good? How should I enjoy it to maximize the experience? This is my first scotch, so I have no idea.

Doublewood refers to how it's "finnished". That particular scotch is aged in oak and the moved to sherry casks. As for the distillery, it's at the foot of the Balvenie Castle on the Spey, sound like a good Scottish Salmon stream to me, and single malt refers to it not being a blend of different ages and batches. It should be enjoyed over ice or with a splash of water to open the bouquet. A nice cigar like a Partagas or a real Cuban, not that hard to find, would go very well with the drink. It should be slightly fruity with a mossy smoked peat flavor but very smooth with minimal bite. If you need help, I'll gladly provide some Cubans that came into the US back in Eisenhour's days to go with the drink. Nothing like a properly aged cigar that's almost fifty to go with some rather fine scotch. And yes, I take my scotch and cigars almost as seriously as my fishing.

Medi comes through....who would have thought

JayL,

Make sure those Ice Cubes are from properly filtered filtered water

Medi,
what does a bottle of that stuff cost?


JayL,

Ad Medi said, if you need some help with that, I will gladly supply the cigars.

Hell, I only live a few mins from you

Thanks for the advice, guys. I poured a bit of it on some ice before I read the cigar suggestion. I love a good cigar, and that would hit the spot. I didn't get a full bottle, it's about half full... I'll be sure to get a good cigar for next time. Medi, I might take you up on that cigar offer. I haven't had a cuban since I was in Germany.

Cambyses, are you going to Valley on friday? I'd be happy to have a cigar while fishing with you.

I must say, it's interesting. It sips well while relaxing and watching the flyers.

WOZERS!! THE THINGS, you can learn on this great board!!
First, I've learned that I'm obviously a minimum of "10 points" below Butt Boat, in class, when it comes to my libations! (which, at least keeps me roughly...3 points, above, Plastic Cat.)
Cigars, we're evidently on about the same par, as I worked part way through college as a tobacconist for the Tender Box-Pipe Shop chain, many moons ago.
But, I really enjoyed reading the lesson on "The Balvenie", booze.
Considering the likes of my libations, (when, I do, indulge), are more than likely; "aged in rinsed out plastic pickle barrels, then moved into equally cleaned, vinegar bottles", I find all this "oak and sherry casks", business quite enlightening!
"Single malt" meaning; "Not being a blend of different ages and batches", also fascinated me, since I had always believed the liquor I drank, WAS made tastier, by the different rags and towels that often were rung dry to get the last drop from them, over the pickle vat before sealing it up to "age" for no less than 36 hours. Just, imagine my surprise!?!
At least I wasn't as ashamed as I'd thought I'd be, when B.B. mentioned "the taste" of such a fine beverage........ mine, also, very often has a "peat bog taste", as well so THAT'S good to know!!
(in fact straining the moss, itself, through one's teeth isn't that uncommon an affair).
But, for the "bite" he insists shouldn't be there, I have to disagree.
We consider ANY libation, we happen to partake in, not worth it's hand printed label UNLESS it not only "has a good bite", but also needs to be subdued with a large stick or the back of an ax head.
Thank, God, no one's brought up the subject so far on "Good Coffee" or we'd have a post going for many, many, pages!!

I think I can be there, if work cooperates!

I don't have to be in the Lehigh Valley until Saturday morning.

I'll know better tomorrow, but work can be tricky, it seems that every friday is a nightmare there.

I love coffee, but I've not yet developed a taste for the good stuff. A good dark roasted african blend is pretty nice.

Perhaps someone else can come in and tack a few pages of coffee talk on to the thread for ya FB.

Sounds good, bob. I'll be sending a few PMs tomorrow to arrange things.

I enjoy coffee very much and probably drink too much of it.

FB,

Don't fret, I don't treat my coffee as I treat my liquor. I enjoy a good pot of coffee, but it doesn't have to be anything to fancy. A pot of Folgers is fine by me, as long as I make the pot.

I am only particular about how the coffee is brewed and how my cup is made.

I don't know if any of you have seen the History Channel special on coffee, but they had some coffee on there that is supposed to be one of the most expensive in the world (if not the most) and it comes from beans that have been digested and passed by some wild cat near Asia.

I don't know about the rest of you, but I am surely not drinking cat crap.

The only thing I think cats are good for are plasticizing!!!

I'm a self admitted coffee snob, I like good coffee, what can I say? I would NOT EVER consider buying the aforementioned coffee, Kopi Luwak. Cat poop coffee doesn't do anything for me.

"Coffee", is to ME.........what "good booze" is to YOU and B.B, Bob.
I roast my own beans here in my tying room and also do tasting for two coffee roasters in my area. What can I say? I retired very early and ya' can't fish after dark, in Oregon!?!
Now, as fancy-wancy as I may like my coffees, I totally agree with you and any one, else, that's; "Not about to drink any coffee that's been passed through an animal's digestive system".
Sorry, but at the risk of "getting kicked off this site, for good", the only way I can describe my thoughts on this Luwak coffee is to link it to "corn and peanuts", if you follow me!?!
Of course, once the Gag-Buck's yuppie crowd learned of this "new, select, extrememly rare and hard to come by, coffee", imitators followed, of course and now you can also buy "Monkey digested coffee", "Aardvark", "Chimpanzee" and even "Ant Eater", digested coffees. I thought it was bad enough, at $85.00 a pound, for the Luwak, let alone the "over a $100.00 A HALF POUND" for some of these others!
But, I DO, find it hilarious, to say the least, when I've read the description of "harvesting Luwak coffee beans": Quote: "It MUST be collected, off the jungle floors of Sumatra, while as fresh as possible and BEFORE it breaks down into individual beans and the "best flavor" is lost!" end, quote.
Well, just thinking about all of these poor workers, running around all hunched over, almost in a 'duck walk', with long handled scoops.... as fast as they can, behind a Luwak, waiting for it to rid itself of its latest load of digest coffee beans... just is too much to even think about, let alone, pay $85.00 a pound for "pooped out coffee beans"!?!
But, hey, MAYBE that's where Maxwell House came up with their age old slogan years ago............ "Good To The Last "DROP"!??

Here in PA you can get the Balvine Doublewood for about $45.00 a bottle, which isn't a bad price for a single malt. They also have a 21 year old for around $85.00 a bottle that was finnished in a port cask, should be very nice. The big boys in scotch available in PA are Glenmorangie 18 year old at about $120.00 a bottle, well worth it in my opinion, Macallan 18 year old, again at about $120.00 a bottle and Macallan 25 year old at about $380.00 a bottle. The longer they age the smoother they get. I can't even imagine how smooth that 25 year old can be. The cigars in question are PINARS and can be found with some digging at a few cigar shops in PA. I always keep a humidor stocked with Partagas, Pinars, Punch, and Hoyo de Monterreys so I have a variety. Coffee? I like Blue Kona. I don't roast but I do grind fresh for each pot and use a gold filter and spring water. Same water I make ice with. That whole coffee passed through a cat or a yak or a monkee or arrdvark thing is funny. With the right hype, you can get people to eat or drink just about anything. I've always said that if they tell you it's an aquired taste, try it and if you don't like it the first time, don't try again, it isn't worth it. Kinda like some call it sushi, others call it fish bait. On a side note, I just helped a friend bitched a deer so I have a nice freezer bag of thin cut venison for scallopini. A nice trout with some of that on the side followed by the aforementioned scotch and cigar and a nice cup of coffee with a small slice of chocolate mouse will make a fine meal. I better get cooking tonight.
