    It is.  You get these big @ss andwiches too.  Granted they're a little expensive, but they're good.

    the PR Air Guard Lt.Col recommended "Don Q," which is made in Puerto Rico and is not exported to the States.
    Hey Outbreak, I just saw this. When did they quit exporting Don Q to the states? I used to buy it here all the time, back in my Pina Colada days. :P At 151 proof, you could prove to everybody what a "man" you were, or if you were like me, simply use less and save money. ;) I still have some of that swill in the basement bar.

    And anybody here been to Carlos & Charlie's in the islands? Their fish-bowl Margeritas are simply the best drink ever. Don't know what they use for Tequila, but I've NEVER felt like that on any other booze. Could be drugs for all I know.

    Less alcohol than champagne, more than beer.  About the same as wine (or a wine cooler, which it pretty much is).

    Laugh all you want, but when I am doing auto work having a Mike's to sip on is enough to keep the frustration demon's away, so that I dont end up yelling at someone who doesnt deserve it.

    I work on our cars to save money, if I could afford to pay someone I would :)

    I almost drank that stuff when I was younger because I couldn't make the connection between "hard" and booze at the time.  Hell, I figured that it must have been extra lemon-y lemonade.

    Like the same way I almost drank newcastle ale when I was 13.  My excuse, "I didn't an ABV figure on the label."

    Vern I used to enjoy a six pack of mike's hard lemonade.  Don't have a lot of experience with beer  :devillol.

    I will say I started drinking Long Island Ice tea's because I thought they were like Arnold Palmer's...  :devillol  They quickly became one of my favorite adult beverages.   :neener  That and Long Island Ice Tea Suicides.   :nervous

    Try nixing the Coke in the LIIT, for Chambord. That gives you a Purple Rain, a whole new taste and quite interesting.

    According to the Colonel, it had never been exported to the states. The ad I saw recently made it sound like it wass "finally" being exported so us mainlanders could enjoy it for the first time.

    He's wrong. I've been "enjoying" it here for over 30 years. (If you want to call it that; it's a really BAD hangover) Any liquor shop in my area has carried it since at least 1978 or so.

    Trout.  1 cutthroat, 1 lake, and two rainbows.  Just had rainbow trout, squash, and sliced tomatoes for dinner.  All grown or caught by myself or a family member.  (And my buddy's got his home micro-brewery all set up.  Who needs stores, eh?  ;)

    It's not between those 2 at all.  If we were to put whiskey that the average guy can afford on a scale of 1-100, Johny Walker would be somewhere in the high teens/low twenties, JD somewhere in the high 30's/low 40's, makers mark, crown royal near 70, George T. Stagg and the like in the mid 80s, with stuff like Crown Royal XR , Cask 16, and some of the Blanton stuff pushing 100.

    You are really comparing different styles of whiskeys/whiskys. You have American whiskeys, Canadian Whiskeys and bourbons all thrown together. I guess you can lump scotchs in there as well?

    They all have particular tastes that are closer to their own styles of whiskey than to each other. If you dislike Canadian style whiskeys then all the Crown Royals will taste aweful to you. I mean you have Johny Walker Scotch whisky thrown in with Maker's Mark and Crown Royal. You might as well throw some Irish whiskeys in there too. You cannot lump whiskeys/whiskys like that.

    You cannot compare a lighter and sweeter taste of good bourbons to the peat and smokey tastes of Scotch and American whiskey. I mean we are civilized people here. We should give our palate more credit than to lump all of the very great, but very different, whiskys/whiskeys together.

    Sorry, but you have offended the liquor snob inside me by comparing apples to oranges, as it were.     :devillol
