Oh yeah. All the guys in my family got together in Arizona to watch spring training (Giants) - Saturday night was perfectly grilled steaks from my uncle, couple bottles of wine, and a bottle of Oban - a 15 year single malt. It was a great night. Cigars and pipes too - almost forgot, sitting around a fire in the desert.

I'd be more specific about the brands...but, you know, see the bottle of Oban I guess.

Good topic - I was thinking we need a chill thread today!

Edit to add a noob question: when you say 1959...like it's been in a humidor since '59?

Hey Craig,

To answer your last question, I misspelled the type of Cigar:

Torano Exodus 1959 '50 Years' - Cigars International

I enjoyed one of them from a sampler collection and they hooked me....GREAT TASTE!!

Regarding Bourbon / Scotch and Single Malts, I have been through the list from stupid cheap to stupid expensive and have attended dozens of tastings over the years. My current tastes dictate $25 for a fifth of Bourbon, $40 for a fifth of Scotch (the beautiful wifey still demands JW Blue Label).

A couple of decades back while Bear Hunting with my partners in Alaska (True Story) we were short of money in a bar and heard a good scotch could carry us much longer than beers would. We ordered GlenFiddich and made them stretch 2 hours.

Since then things have gotten better but I threaten to punch either of them directly in the plums if they get off on an arrogant ass peat discussion regarding Scotch.........,,,,,

Haha! I like your wife's taste - my brothers and I have a tradition of buying a bottle of Blue Label when one of us have a kid. My wife is always pregnant (oopsies!), so even she doesn't know what she likes anymore. Last drink 2012.

I'm a big Buffalo Trace fan. A couple years ago I bought the cheapest whisk(e)y I could and worked my way up until I liked it - Buffalo Trace is my perfect value point. I'm no aficionado, but personally I think whiskey should be good enough to drink straight, just some stones depending on the season.

This thread is making me want to go out back, build a fire and smoke a cigar...but I have to dig trenches for my front yard sprinklers in the morning...dang tree roots rippin' stuff up.
