Johnny Blue, which im not proud to say. Paying 80 dollars a shot in a club is just plain stupid. Moving off the sidewalk now.Almost had @amp0193 thread hijacked by @JAJT @Greg Rutkowski and @G-Man. We already know who the cigar aficionados are, but where are my whiskey and Scotch lovers?
Here's my favorite bottle. A Dalmore Cigar Malt. Pairs beautifully with a cigar.

What's the best you've ever had?
We already know who the cigar aficionados are,
Oh man! Tugging at my heartstrings brother!
I'd love to talk about my extensive collection of Pappy but since I've only sipped it once at the distillery that would be a lie hahaha. I'm not a huge fan of blends, more a single malt guy, but on the cruise I got two bottle of Johnnie Walker Island Green and it is fantastic, really smooth. I'm sure the fact that it was duty free enhances the taste too!
"Japanese Harmony" by Hibiki. My go to. Makes a great mid-priced gift as well. Everyone gets surprised when they receive any Japanese whiskey.
Anyone wants to come up to Maine I've got a card table in the lounge downstairs with some Cubans I got on my last trip
Its not the best whiskey I've ever had but as a poor college student whenever I'm 'ballin out' I go for some Jack Daniels.
Amp....we are planning a treasure hunt tomorrow. I know how to do itI have a very interesting story that is relevant to this thread:
My grandfather was the caretaker of a cemetery in Minneapolis for years. My mom and her sisters grew up playing in the graveyard.
Every year, the owner of the cemetery would give my grandfather a nice bottle of whiskey as a Christmas gift.
My grandfather never had a drop of alcohol in his life, but politely accepted the gift year after year.
In 1972, after 6 years of this, he finally tells the owner "I don't drink" and the gifts stop.
Pretty soon after that, my grandfather took the family back to the farm to take up farm life again, but before they did they had to clean up the house... and dispose of the whiskey.
Now, it was a small town, and they were good church goin' folk, and he didn't want the trash collector to think he was a drunk... what with throwing out 6 bottles of whiskey and all.
So he did what any reasonable caretaker would do...
He buried the bottles in the next grave that he dug.
My grandfather told me this whole story at age 99, which was the first time anyone had really thought of it in the 40 years that had passed.
While he couldn't remember the name on the grave, he did remember the row, and I've got it marked on a map.
So yes, there is buried treasure in my family, and it's 6 bottles of 45-50 year-old, good-enough-to-give-as-a-Christmas-gift, Whiskey.
(If anyone knows anything about finding objects underground, or legally exhuming graves, PM me!)

I think anyone that jokes about a treasure hunt should be shot. I'm dead serious. Shoot me a pm and we can plan tomorrow!Not sure if you're serious.
If you are, there's a bottle in there for you.
We tried to figure this out 6 years ago, but it kind of fell by the wayside.
My plan was to transcribe all of the names from the row, and ask my grandfather if he recognized any of the names.
But then he passed away.
So... now I guess I need some sort of underground sonar or something that can identify non-coffin shaped objects.
