    How do you like it? I’m down to my last bottle of the 10yr (stocked up when it went on sale a few months back) and I’m planning to buy a Wee Beastie when I’m out. 

    As you'd expect from a 5 year, it's not quite as good as it's 10 year counterpart, but it still very much tastes like an Ardbeg.

    No, they're not expensive because they're not blended.  They're expensive because they're aged 10 years or more (usually 12 years).  The cost for storing that long and the amount lost to evaporation (angel's share) drives the prices up.

    Well, not all of them are aged that long.  I just picked up some Ardbeg Wee Beastie last week which is a 5-year Scotch.  Granted it is cheaper than their older Scotches.

    If you mix your bourbon with ginger ale, just buy Beam. Or Old Crow. 🤮

    Personally, I use Ezra Brooks for my mixer.  Not gonna be confused with a high end bourbon, but better than a $13 bottle should be.

    You want cheap and good? 

    Old Grandad, which Bob already mentioned.   Old Granddad 114 is even better, and doesn't cost that much more.   Wild Turkey 101, Evan Williams Bottled-in-Bond, Four Roses Yellow label.  There's a ****-ton more, but these are a good start

    I would be remiss if we were talking good-and-cheap bourbon without a shout-out to Larceny.

    Not sure following your logic....

    Procreation is not a factor that excludes you from Darwin...

    Dumb, ignorant people can procreate..hell my wife has 5 sisters that have proved that...multiple times...with multiple men...


    Yes, you may all throw up now...


    Edit: should also add...none are married to any of the kids fathers....1 was before she cheated on him with half the neighborhood and I wish I was exaggerating. ..now you may go throw up...

    The idea of the Darwin Awards is that you are removed from the gene pool.  So you can win an award by dying or by being castrated, but if you've already procreated, you've continued your genetic line and thus have not been removed from the gene pool.

    the following deep analysis is solidly grounded in science and objective analysis of validly established empirical data and could go in the 'gop sewer' thread, but since it's related to the garland doj hearing going on mow, i'm putting it here: lindsay graham's value to humanity is less than that of a bag of fertilizer

    Yeah, but where does he fit compared to a bag of spiders?

    Nikki Fried says she won’t lower flags to honor Rush Limbaugh despite DeSantis’ order


    Florida Agriculture Commissioner Nikki Fried says she will disregard Gov. Ron DeSantis’ order to lower Florida flags at half-staff in honor of conservative talk radio host Rush Limbaugh who died last week.


    “Lowering to half-staff the flag of the United States of America is a sacred honor that pays respect to fallen heroes and patriots. It is not a partisan political tool. Therefore, I will notify all state offices under my direction to disregard the Governor’s forthcoming order to lower flags for Mr. Limbaugh – because we will not celebrate hate speech, bigotry, and division. Lowering the flag should always reflect unity, not division, and raising our standards, not lowering them. Our flags will remain flying high to celebrate the American values of diversity, inclusion, and respect for all.”

    Hasn't Biden asked that flags be flown at half-staff for the 500,000 people dead of Coronavirus?

    There is no doubt that the roll out for both company’s is problematic at best and horrible at worst. That they’ve sold more than ever is a statement on their brands appeal, but does not make it a good rollout for their customers. Not when they could have sold 3x as many or more, who knows. Also that they’ve had 7 years to get ready for this, 7 freeking years! And receipts for how much the scalpers made as a sign of success is a testament to how grand a failure it is, for its customers. I don’t blame scalpers, the company’s are responsible for the failure and their inability to sell direct to customers and through its distributors.

    They could only sell 3x as many if they could make 3x as many.  These companies don't own the chip-making foundries.  Right now there's a high demand for microchip manufacturing and you can only get what you can get.  Just look at the GPU market right now.  Generations old GPUs are selling for over MSRP.

  8. It's pretty amazing how well the Caps have scouted and developed goaltending talent over the past 15 years.  Varlamov, Neuvirth, Holtby, Grubauer, Vanacek, Samsonov, and even Copely has been competent for a guy we first acquired as an undrafted free agent.
