Hi PRob,

A good subject for political junkies of different stripes to have some common ground!  I got inspired by the Talisker comment and just bought some this afternoon.  I'm enjoying it now.  Thanks for the recommendation.  Good and peaty, but not overpowering.  A few drops of water made it just right.

While at the store I found a book by Michael Jacskon (of course not the singer) on various whiskies.  A great resource worth checking out.

A year ago in England I had the pleasure of spending about $75 on single glass of the most amazing nectar of the Gods I've ever had.(I'm ashamed to say I can't recall the name!!!)  No joke...the finish lasted a solid 20-30 minutes.  Totally amazing!  I certainly can't do that very often, but wow!

I asked the store manager about the Johnny Walker Green label.  He heard about it, but only had it in a gift pack and hadn't tried it yet.  The indivuals should be out soon.

Cheers!

I agree, an excellent book.

Hello Gideon,

Thanks for the Amazon link.  FYI, the book I was looking at wasn't limited to Scotch.  it listed whiskies from around the world.  Of course Ireland was listed, (I do enjoy Bushmills as an inexpensive drink, and Black Bush I think is quite good for a premium blended) but also had reviews on whiskies from places as strange as Japan.  I'll double check the name.  But it's not limited by Scottish producers which I found a good thing.  I couldn't find it in Amazon, but the title is says "whisky" and not "scotch."  No doubt his books on Scotch will be more in depth for that specific than the book to which I'm referring.

There's something about this Laphroig with a habanero and some honey steeped in the bottle that just takes me further- it ain't smooth at all but man it gets me THERE.! A bit of an off-sour thing though that's catching up with me here. I do think I will try the 10 year Ardbeg and see if that's more like it, and the Laguvalin (sp!) too.

Is that Whiskey Fest always in NY? Is it ever a west coast thing?

Hey Ted,

That sounds crazy.  And just crazy for me to give it a try!  So how's this done?   A pour the scotch in a new bottle with the goodies or put the goodies on the Laphroig bottle?  Normal size pepper?  How much honey?  You said to steep the ingredients...heat or just let it sit for a bit?

Sound like a great cold rememdy!

I once soaked a hotdog in Laphroaig; it was the best damn hotdog I ever ate.

I'm still working on the recipe- I cut a large habanero into several pieces and popped it right in the Laphroig bottle, from which I filled my little formerly-vanilla-extract pocket flask to take down to the studio.

First it was just hot... a couple days later, a nice roasty pepper flavor developed... then it got hotter and roastier... now, I can barely drink more than a sip! So I added the honey and a touch of lemon juice. I think maybe it was best just after a few days... possibly it would be better to dress the habanero and remove the seeds and membrane and go for a milder more tasy beverage with just the shell of the pepper.

It's not the ultimate recipe but it gets you LIT and is very good for opening up the vocal chords!

Oh yeah, I forgot, about the time it was getting hotter and roastier I popped a bit of echinacea root, fresh from the garden, into my little flask- holy cow, that was really something. That'll cure your cold!
