Johnny does not like to play with others. He likes to be left alone, or in the company of 2 ice cubes. Tis an aquired taste though.

Red lable?

Forty years ago, Scotch led me to a serious consideration of abstinence. Fortunately, I discovered Kentucky Bourbon.

My dad use to drink scotch and water... for the life of me, I don't know how he did it. I would just rather drink it straight than dilute it with cruddy tap water!

Actually, it's generally accepted by Scotch connosieurs that the addition to a bit of water enhances the whisky's aroma. For example, check this site:

Okay, from living in NC I have gotten the feeling that Scotch, Whiskey, and Bourbon were all the same because at the ABC store, they are all grouped together under the "Bourbon" heading.

It would be more accurate to group them together under a "Whiskey" heading along with Tennessee, Canadian, and blended whiskies.

Well, for 3 months I didn't even think NC sold hard alcohol so when I finally found out what an ABC store was I ventured in and didn't know what Bourbon was ~ that's how I remember where they were all grouped. Quite honestly the Canadian Mist that I was used to was up front and it was all I had heard of. Jack, Jim Beam, and all the other whiskeys were shelved under a huge Burboun sign. It took me forever to find them my first trip.
