    I think I'll choose the living room every time. Though I understand the thrill of seeing it live, as I've gotten older I much prefer being at home.
    I am the same way. Plus I don't close the bar in the 3rd quarter

    I had convinced the wife to let me go to the game but the cap was 2K, so instead of all that money, I am just going to go buy a really nice bottle of scotch and enjoy myself.

    Hard to calculate. I'm paying face through Tide Pride.

    But the savings vs. current market don't come within a light year of making up for the donations necessary to accumulate the Tide Totals points needed to get that opportunity.

    So all in, how much do I REALLY pay? From purely a monetary standpoint, I'm pretty sure I'd be better off with the scalpers.

    I like the Islays -- Laphroaig, Ardbeg, and especially Lagavulin. If you're not in the mood for that much smoke and peat, Talisker is an excellent alternative...briny sea air from Skye, good but not Islay-strength peat, and strong black pepper on the finish.

    If you like the double-matureds, Lagavulin makes one that ages the regular 16 years in oak, then about six months in sherry casks called, fittingly enough, Lagavulin Double-Matured. Ardbeg Uigeadail is Ardbeg's answer.

    If you have trouble finding those, Royal Mile Whiskies in Edinburgh will ship to the states. It's amazingly quick, and they offset the VAT refund against the shipping, so it's almost like buying in their store in Scotland.

    I'm not much for the peat at all. Much more of a highlands kinda guy.

    Every time I drink Laphroaig I feel as if I just rinsed my mouth out with grass clippings and motor oil.

    Well, as my grandfather used to say, "That's what makes hoss racin'"

    And you're right, Laphroaig is the harshest of the Islays. I'd still recommend Talisker as a change of pace.

    We did the Cowboy Classic and The Iron Bowl. That's gonna be it for the year. The dadgum airfare from here is expensive too as it's cruise season too on top of the NC. Add the hotel etc, its just too rich for my blood.

    I have a delicate palate I suppose. I love Glengoyne 17 year, although my girlfriend prefers the 10 year.

    I'm not familiar with Glengoyne, but I'm always looking for a new dram. It'll be fun to track down a bottle.

    But more than that, I have to admire your taste in women. Any woman who drinks scotch and appreciates the good ones is a huge catch. This coming October, to my everlasting amazement, (good Lord willing, the creek don't rise, and I live long enough), I'll turn over 25 years with one for those. She's actually the one who found the Lagavulin Double Matured, and doesn't know it yet, but there'll be an Ardbeg Uigeadail in her Christmas stocking.

    Well done, my friend.
