View Full Version : How do I make scotch not taste like death?



Stick
15th October 08, 06:01 PM
So I have a bottle of Glenmorangie, Highland Single Malt Scotch Whisky, The Quinta Ruban, Perfected by the Sixteen Men of Tain- holy shit that's a long name- and I'm trying to figure out how to drink this apparently good scotch without wanting to light my tounge on fire.

It's like, hidden under the burn I can taste, just almost, something that I know I like, but there's just the god awful burn of whisky/medicine/urine surrounding that taste and preventing me from enjoying it to the fullest.

Now, what the fuck sort of mixed drinks can I do with this scotch in an effort to make it palletable?

I can buy ingredients, but just so you know, here's what's in my fridge right now
eggs
fat free milk
sour cream- ok, porbably not useful, but what do I know?
orange juice
lemon juice
fruit punch gatorade- LoL
apples
bananas
oranges
extensive spice rack
soy sauce
worschteshire sauce
teriyaki sauce
vinegar
olive oil
lager
merlot

Alright, you superior drinkers, help me drink this bottle!

A little bit of water can take a lot of the edge off Scotch without diluting the flavor too much. Try letting the ice melt for five or so minutes. You also want to take small sips - this is not PBR or your girlfriend's white wine spritzer. Once you get it past your teeth, suck a few bubbles though it to fill your sinuses with the flavor, then swallow it.

Or, there is the chance you could both be a pussy and lacking in refinement, but I'm giving you the benefit of the doubt here.

The sour cream AND the fruit punch. That should mask that pesky flavor of quality scotch.

Aaranar
15th October 08, 07:32 PM
Ice and water not cutting it, huh? Try a good sour mixer, preferably something you mix in a blender, not pour out of a plastic bottle. Maybe an orange twist.

As an alternative, you can freeze it ( leave it in the freezer for an hour or two ), and try it that way. Superchilled, it should bring more flavor forward, and delay the burn a bit.

Stick,

Two options.

1.) Drink it neat, but don't slug it back. A little on the tongue, ENJOY the burn and inhale just a bit before you swallow. It releases the flavour on the way down. DO NOT choke trying to breathe and swallow at the same time. Inhale first, THEN swallow. Quality scotch is supposed to be savoured, not slammed or mixed. It should take a while to enjoy a single ounce.

2.) If you try that and it's still not to your taste, then refer to SFGOON's post: you are a pussy. Give the scotch to someone man enough to appreciate it.

You might just not like scotch. Try it this way, and ounce or so of scotch and a beer. Have a little beer and then like Feyrk suggests a small sip of scotch whenever the mood hits you. That is how I drink Bourbon. You do not gulp...

Wine is one thing I have not tried yet. Smells awfully grainy though. I think I would need to start with something very fruity, and I mean a vintage other than gay sex.

Don't talk about being gay in the company of men of the calibre who took your juicy young wife-thing from you, like a ripe ignored fruit. All you can do now is learn from us. You can reject that hard lesson if you wish. But you cannot complain about that hard lesson until you are finally one of us.

Your loving is not measured in litres or inches, but by shoe sizes.

Admit it, you cannot truly love any women because she has no hairy cock to slurp down, nor any chiselled abs she can dangle that low-slung rifle across. And that is why you love the military so much. Because you are gay. Very gay. And you shouldn't be ashamed.

Why the fuck are you drinking Turpentine?

As far as Reagan goes, my friend expressed my feelings for the man best when he said:


"Ronald Reagan represents all of the worst elements of the American political experience of the last 50 years. All of them. He was, and always will be, nothing but a steaming hot pile of filthy hyena puke.

Intellectually, Reagan gave chimpy a run for his money. He was vacuous. He was shallow. He was incurious. He was a puppet and a door stop for a group of sick ideologues who really ran the country. He was a shitty actor and foolish tool.

Ideologically, he was a hater and an imperialist and far-right loony-tune. He hated the poor. He hated gays. He hated leftists. He hated communists - and he was pretty sure you were one if you disagreed with him. He hated and he hated and he hated. Just ask his own kids. He hated them and himself and his ex-wife. Ronald Reagan was a twisted unrepentant closed-minded shit-bag hate monger. And that's just for starters.

The foreign policy of Ronald Reagan did more to impoverish and kill the poor and helpless humans of the world than any world leader before or since - with the possible exception of our current chimpking. Reagan just didn't give a shit. He was going to defeat communism (which was already falling of it's own weight) and he didn't care how many children were burned alive or how many people starved to death on the way. Let em die. Reagan was a fucking asshole.

On Reagan's watch the military budget of the U.S. grew to the proportions of a heaping pile of 10,000 week-old dead and bloated Blue Whales. And it stunk just as bad. The practice of rewarding incompetent cronies with gigantic useless contracts for unneeded military hardware was elevated to art form under Reagan. Reagan's legendary megalomania, hubris and abject ignorance led him to believe the tales of any crackpot who managed to slither past the goons who comprised his inner circle. Star-wars missiles, atomic shields, space-age death rays. You name it - that dumb piece of shit would fall for it - and blow billions of your tax dollars on it.

And on the domestic front - holy shit the domestic front. Ronald Reagan was a force for the rampaging evil of anti-human destructiveness. He never met a social program he didn't scorn. He never met an American in need he didn't shit directly upon. His response to the AIDS epidemic is one of the most sickening cold-blooded expressions of pure murderous political evil in the history of the earth. Genghis Khan could only dream of such depravity and indifference to human suffering. There is so much more, but, hell, if you don't already know about this shit, then go read a fucking book or two.

Then there was Iran-Contra - the infamous orgy of unfettered criminality at the heart of the Reagan legacy. Again, look it up. Rogues, liars, crooks, murderers and ignorant heartless scum surrounded Reagan at all times. Alli Babba would've been shamed. But Ronald Reagan was shameless.

Oh, did I mention The War on Drugs and it's ballooning of the prison/criminal industrial complex and the rise of brainless goon-like authoritarianism? Or the destruction of the modern labor movement including the cowardly firing of the Air Traffic Controllers? Or the beginnings of the current trend of packing the Judiciary with corrupt freakish pseudo-fascist stoolies? Or the repugnant rapes of Lebanon and Grenada? Or the dim-witted goofball junk science that came to known as "Reaganomics?" Or grant rigging at the Department of Housing and Urban Development? Or James Watt and the whole-hearted attempt to destroy the earth and all it's inhabitants at the expense of greed mongers and corporate whores? Or the largest white collar theft in the history of planet Earth - the Savings and Loan Bailout? And on and on and on and on.

I really don't have time for this shit. So let me conclude,

Ronald Reagan will forever be remembered as one of the most idiotic, vile, worthless leaders of any any nation in any era. He presently occupies a special place in Hell beside Hitler, Stalin and Pol Pot. And I promise you, they all think he's an idiot too. Fuck Ronald Reagan. And then fuck him again."

You never serve Red Wine chilled. It needs to be kept in a dark environment to age well, but you don't serve Red Wine cold, so it's wasting space to keep it in a fridge. Put it at the back of a cool cupboard if you don't have a basement with a cool corner or a pantry or a real wine cellar.

Generally warmth brings out the flavour in a red wine more but it's acceptable to serve some reds (like a pinot noir) slightly chilled. Say about 30 mins in the fridge then open it to let it breathe for a while before serving.

It's not compulsory, merely a matter of preference. Remember, the argument that red wine should be drunk at room temperature to bring out the flavour can just as easily apply to many types of beer, but civilized races believe that beer should be cold and warm beer should remain the tipple of homeless people and the British.

Bowmore 12 yr old is as lovely as I remembered.

Lead crystal rocks glass chock full of ice, about 2 fingers of amber heaven and a splash of water.

I'm told that the look on my face when I had the first sip was frightening, but that was my elder daughter. I let her taste it and she understands.

No, she's still not for the likes of any of you.

Best Scotch I have ever tasted. Ever.

The gran reserva is much more affordable, so it is probably next on my list. I will think of you guys the next time I crack the bottle.

So I have a bottle of Glenmorangie, Highland Single Malt Scotch Whisky, The Quinta Ruban, Perfected by the Sixteen Men of Tain- holy shit that's a long name- and I'm trying to figure out how to drink this apparently good scotch without wanting to light my tounge on fire.

It's like, hidden under the burn I can taste, just almost, something that I know I like, but there's just the god awful burn of whisky/medicine/urine surrounding that taste and preventing me from enjoying it to the fullest.

Now, what the fuck sort of mixed drinks can I do with this scotch in an effort to make it palletable?

I can buy ingredients, but just so you know, here's what's in my fridge right now
eggs
fat free milk
sour cream- ok, porbably not useful, but what do I know?
orange juice
lemon juice
fruit punch gatorade- LoL
apples
bananas
oranges
extensive spice rack
soy sauce
worschteshire sauce
teriyaki sauce
vinegar
olive oil
lager
merlot

Alright, you superior drinkers, help me drink this bottle!

THAT WAS MY FUCKING BOTTLE OF SCOTCH!!!!

Ice and water not cutting it, huh? Try a good sour mixer, preferably something you mix in a blender, not pour out of a plastic bottle. Maybe an orange twist.

As an alternative, you can freeze it ( leave it in the freezer for an hour or two ), and try it that way. Superchilled, it should bring more flavor forward, and delay the burn a bit.

Sour?

You want to put sour in a Quinta Ruban...with an orange twist...

You remind me of the gay guy in Boondock Saints...if he were played by the flamer from that show with Debra Messing...

2.) If you try that and it's still not to your taste, then refer to SFGOON's post: you are a pussy. Give the scotch to someone man enough to appreciate it.

Or just give the bottle BACK TO ME!!!

A manhattan is a tasty non girly way to drink less good whiskies (and bourbon of course). But I'm not giving you my recipe cause if you use a good single malt for a manhattan, Goon will kill you, then me, then himself.

A Manhattan is made with bourbon. Not Scotch.
