Ahhhh, yes, I saw that article as well. I also prefer the peaty Islay scotches, particularly Ardbeg. But I also like Macallan quite a bit. It's a very solid down-the-middle scotch that does everything well and won't alienate anybody.

This month, Scottish distillery the Glenlivet unveiled a series of “glassless cocktails” consisting of liquor and some other stuff in a “seaweed-extract casing.”

So if you don't like the taste of scotch, you can still hang with the big boys?

first off, you just know kids will be sticking those up their butts.

second:
So if you don't like the taste of scotch, you can still hang with the big boys?

i don't think this gets you around testing the scotch (if used as expected, i.e. orally).  the idea is that you don't need a glass: pop a pod in your mouth, case dissolves, and you have a mouthful of liquor/cocktail/etc.   

if you're surrounded by Big Boys drinking scotch, i somehow don't see a brightly colored booze-pill being you ticket to acceptance...

Rasmus has an interesting wine auction going, too. Loads of Opus One.

Edit: the 10 year Rip Van Winkle is going for $850. insanity.

Believe it or not, that seems to be about the one and only place you don't have to deal with a bunch of shit to snag pappy... just got to be lucky or a tater.

I don't know him that well at all, but hosted the last DC homebrew thing at 3 stars, so likely talking the same person
