to all. I have for you a rather offtopic post. Also given my lack of knowledge for what you all drink this may be rather boring.

I have just tried my first sip of George Dickel No. 12. It is quite good. I had previously had their Barrel Select, but that is somewhat expensive. The whiskey market is preying on the publics current affection for "Single Malt" and so forth which in reality I cannot see how there can be such a demand. I have tried several various whiskeys but in the end Jim Beam Black Label, or Famous Grouse is good enough for me. I fail to see how these more expensive runs of whiskey are worth the extra cost. Anyways back to point, this dickel no 12 is great. I usually prefer splashes of coke (or half and half when i'm not in the mood to take it easy ;-) but this No 12 with just ice and some water is very smooth. And it is cheap enough not to feel like a total schmuck.

The decision doesn't have to be logical; it was unanimous.
