    Why practice? Just drink what you enjoy. Kinda like guns and calibers. Find the sweet spot and wear it out. :cool:

    That could end badly and result in a new thread in the reloading or gunsmithing forums! :eek:

    I like me some Woodford Reserve Rye and Smichters Rye. Quite a bit. Lesser Rye's are eeh. Although if you go cheap I actually can drink Dickels. It is better than most Rye's from the $20-$35 range IMO. I haven't gone high end Rye yet.

    I’m the same way, don’t care for rye. I think it would be a good candidate for an Old Fashion though. I don’t usually go for the frou-frou stuff though.

    I tried an old fashioned once made in one of the oldest bars still in existence in the US. It was their signature drink.

    I suffered though half of it and then ordered a glass of whisky. Thank god someone else was buying.

    That was the same night one of the guys in the group asked for blue cheese olives in his martini and the bartender said “where do you think you are? Applebee’s?”

    He was not amused but I cackled like an idiot.

    Really like this dark beer. It’s very light for a stout. Has hints of coffee, bourbon and chocolate. Very smooth.

    I have had some of this. It is VERY smooth. You are right. I normally don't like stouts (apologies to @thrillhill , who doesn't really like beer except for stouts), but this is one of the better ones. I am a wuss IPA guy.

    Don't mess with me Knob! I am not enamoured of the "flavoured" stuff but, the single barrel straight stuff is the shissel.

    It was pretty good, little on the lights side for a coffee porter but I was a fan.

    You're always welcome to come by. It is rare that there is no Knob in the house. Just let me know you are coming, I don't take kindly to unannounced "guests".

    There is no way I'd roll up on you or your house. I've seen those pics with that big revolver!

    (Disclosure: it was a couple weeks ago.)

    It didn't last too long. It was like drinking a bag of apples that kicked yur ass.


    Tonight it's back to the old simple standby.....

    Son, if you need Cheerwine, I'll ship it to you. Not my "cupa'", but I have friends and relations who are addicted.

    When in Rome. I have had many Shiners in TX. Used to have a Rep there whose last name was Shiner so it was mandatory.

    Give the 9% Imperial Ranger a try. I jostle between the two, depending on how lit I want to be.

    To answer the original question, only water, since Jan 2.

    I'm giving both my liver and my wallet a break.
