Toilet Seed Plants under a HLG 260xl rspec kits x 2 COMPLETED

@dbrn32 Glenfiddich, Glenlivet, and Balvenie 12 year olds are a great way to get introduction into Single Malt Scotches.

The style of glasses does effect the taste. I have 3 or 4 different Whisky Snifter glasses. There was a 9 part series a out how Scotch is made and what not. I just can’t remember the name.

Some Single Malts is designed to be cut with water and ice. Me? I ama purist. Straight neat for me. Even the rough ones and if you have one of those, its like a kick to the family jewels. Pretty harsh.

I’m pretty sure I’ve had multiple samplings from each of them. Macallan, Glen Tate, Glenmorangie too. Quite a few 15 and 18 year varieties too.

@Cannabian I can enjoy most types but Bourbon I am not a fan of. Except Four Roses I can tolerate. I am a Scotch man through and through. Been my favorite since I was a wee lad aka before I was 10 years old. My favorite then was J&B. I have not tried is as an adult.

I went to this one Distillery while I was in South Africa. It was on a top of a mountain and there was a Endangered Species called a Samango monkey. .They made Gin which I also love neat.

I also LOVE REAL Vodka made with potato or wheat. There is a US Law that all Russian Vodkas has to be made with Grains. Which gives it the Rubbing Alcohol taste. I lost track bow many types I had in Moscow, Russia.

We went to a Club not far from the Red Square. We had our privste waitresses and I ordered a shot of Vodka. Ahhh a shot…more like 4 or 5 oz. Got back the University pretty lit up at 4:30am. :joy::joy::joy:

If you have a good Vodka, you drink it neat. Vodka aka Водка means Little Water in Russian. Its literally like drinking water. The stuff in the USA is pure rubbing alcohol.

My biggest mistake I only came home with 1 bottle. I didn’t make that mistake coming home from South Africa. VAT 69 is smooth for a blended Scotch. I thought it was a movie prop in Band of Brothers. I was shocked to see it on the shelf for leas than $10.

I draw the line at no more than $1000 for a bottle of a Single Malt.

@Cannabian Thats my high end cut off. The one time I was at the Scottish Whisky Heritage Museum in Edinburgh I got the last of a Glenfiddich was a 40 year old and that was the best I have ever had.

The bartender gave me the empty bottle and its from the 1964 Reserva line. This means only 1 cask is released for each year. Worth every single penny. :+1::+1::+1:

@Cannabian You would think she be dead but you can clearly see she is eating up the fan leaves and she is still producing more fan leaves.

She is no monster. But its all good.
