Does Trader Joe's carry spirits in IL?
With old ass scotch you get the smooth haps and a lower ABV. I'm usually in the 15 year market price wise but I'd like to give this a shot. Was reviewed very well.
total jam at the infamous 'house of spirits' here in rhinelander. da mom picked up a 12 pack of 50 ml bottles of glenlivet 12 for $12 with tax. glenlivet isn't anything to write home about but crunch the numbers. crazy deal, i'm going to pick a couple up on thursday.
$15 for a 750ml?
plus, you feel like a giant when you drink the little bottles
Is that the airplane sized bottle? The one that alcoholics use to disguise their "nips" when they're at work?
For those of us with daughters, the little empty airline bottles are a great addition to their toy kitchen sets.
600 ml for 12 bucks?
Double Black is sick with cigars. Sick.
My brother got two different bottles of Macallan yesterday. I think the ten and the fifteen. I didn't try any.
I almost bought Green Label yesterday but the one liquor store that was open had a ripoff price on it. I got the Balvenie 15 instead. Makes your fancy beers look like a pile o puke.
I had Johnnie Walker Platinum Label at Red Ivy on Clark last night (obviously I was only there as a prerequisite for having sex) (#keepusposted).
Price: 12 for a dram
Nose: kind of a sweet honey malt thing going on, you know it's gonna be very drinkable right away
Mouth: extreme softy smoothness, sensual
Finish: pretty much nothing, like all non-smoky JW labels
Only buy if you're loaded. Not worth 110 dollars. Texture is phenomenal though. Certainly worth a drink in a bar. I was in a horrible atmosphere to critique scotch too. Plus I don't know shit from shine-ola
start drinking some islay scotches, zoso. then we can talk about islay scotches
So when the girl that I mentioned in the Random Musings thread and I started dating we went to a Cubs rooftop game. After the game we were ready to go home, but she got a call from a friend of hers that was at the W Hotel. Apparently, this friend was a dude that was her best friend in high school, and blah blah blah.
We get to the W Hotel, and me wanting to be like a badass in front of this guy ordered a Macallan 25 year. Found out later that it was $150 a glass. It was very smooth though.
Briny and peaty?
Pussy ain't free.
Found that out the hard way that day.
just like how i like my women to be (to wit, briny and peaty)
Amber hued and sensual.
Maybe a stereotype but I always thought dudes with women best friends were either gay or they've been holding a torch for said girl all throughout the friendship
Turns out she was holding a torch for him. So, fuck me I guess.
Is that who she ended up getting engaged to?
My best friend is a girl.
You guys heard it here first. Zoso is obviously gay in love with his best friend. You think the Hose will have it's own table??
Sensual, like a puckered sphincter on a full moon
Those situations are always fucked. Unless the guy truly is a gay (which he never is), they definitely either have fucked and are playing the field until they fuck again, or want to fuck but are too busy playing retarded games to get with it, but they will. Best to just back the hell out of it
We just don't care about each other sexually if that makes sense. There's been some stuff but there's nothing complicated or weird about it.
I'm just going off what I've witnessed. Girl I was friends with in college. Her HS best friend was a dude, he was gay, although when I first met him he was in the closet but it was kind of obvious. All the dudes in my HS that were clearly gay, best friends were females. A former co worker of mine, his 2 closet friends were females. One time he was drunk and admitted to me how he wanted both of them. One of the girls was a huge slut, so I don't know what he was pining for.
At least I'm not the only one with this belief!
I learned that lesson late in that case. As it turns out the guy she is marrying isn't this guy. Guess the best friend and her had a falling out
Next girl I dated who had a dude as a best friend was her cousin. So I was pretty safe in that regard.
I've since turned into a believer. Now I avoid that shit like it is the plague.
Or so you think
My moot court partner in lawl school was this dimepiece who had a serious out of town boyfriend, but also picked up a "best law school friend" dude who she spent 95% of her time with. It was so fucking pathetic watching the dude go through all the "guy friend" motions, not getting any, but obviously just waiting for his moment. We all kinda made fun of him because it was sad. The girl's boyfriend even got a job in Chicago eventually and they moved in together.
Lo and behold, about six months ago I see the girl's FB and she's totally with the dude friend now...and he's smiling ear-to-ear in every picture, another satisfied customer of The System.
I'm guessing out of town boyfriend worked in construction.
Link to said dimepiece?
The thing about Scotch is that it rules.
deepest of dickings
C'mon, zmz, help me out here.
I just downloaded an album by Diarrhea Planet. I am truly living the life.
Alright stfu for now unless you have scotch recs.
Did anyone try the TJ's shit in the original post?
hence the "gay" caveat
Nobody even addressed the question. Do you know if TJ's sells spirits in IL? I have never attempted to buy anything but cheap wine there, and maybe a few sixers of decent beer.
Also Quaye balls, I'm leaning towards a smoky islay malt for NYE. Something good with spicy truffles and cigars and beef.
Pretty sure Trader Joe's only sells beer and wine. Ditto Aldi.
