What is everyone drinking these days?  I just discovered the Laphroaig brand.  Excellent stuff.  Really smoky taste with a great finish.

Woodford Reserve.

Yes Christopher, Caol Ila is definitely one of the finest single malts around, but the Caol Ila distillery is owned by Diageo, a British multi-national alcoholic drinks company. The Laphroaig distillery is owned by Beam inc. -- an American spirits company.

Like you, my preference in whisky is for the peaty flavours of the Islay Malts: Lagavulin, Laphroaig, Ardbeg and others. They are truly unique; and Islay Malts are without doubt the most richly flavoured of all whiskies, and once tasted nothing compares.

Glenmorangie because I prefer something a little smoother.

I'm more of a bourbon drinker myself, but i do fancy a few fingers of The Famous Grouse now and then. Not exactly high-class, but very smooth and a nice addition to a good book. If i'm going to splurge, i have to go with one of Glenfidditch's offerings. Love the 18-year, when i can find it. So hard to find a good Scotch in this part of the country.

The Dalmore - never fails to please.

I like Woodford Reserve, Knob Creek, or Maker's Mark, personally. Over ice.

A bizarre dating trend I see

Maybe this is just me, but one trend I tend to with people looking for someone to date or marry is some fixation on "common interests" or the other person "liking all the same stuff, e.x. music, hobbies, sports, etc" as me.To me this just seems... weird, and doesn't seem to jive with history; romantic relationships to me are primarily about attraction and love, and the specific 'activities' you do together aren't really that important, it's really about the bonding and connection.Not about a…See More
