Skrewball whiskey

  • https://www.skrewballwhiskey.com/


    Tried mixing it with a few things tonight, to see if I could enhance it. Chocolate and Peanut Butter seemed the obvious, so I tried Creme de Cocoa but it was a bust, made it a bit bitter and too much of a bite.


    One of the cool things about skrewball is that it's a great sipping whiskey with almost no bite.


    Amaretto is another favorite of mine, but it just didn't mix well.


    Touch of vanilla had no help. Tried a few different combinations and just went back to sipping the skrewball :)

  • Ouzo mixes with Dr. Pepper. Tastes like Vick's Formula 44. (I do like the taste of Vick's Formula 44). I haven't been a serious drinker since the 1980s. Maybe some of my mix choices are part of the reason why.

  • I had a small cup (only ~6 ozs) of my TinCup whiskey last night. And since the bottle was getting low, I just went ahead and poured another for my roommate, y'know - being friendly. He took one sip, loved it - and then gave it back to me. Turns out he had a date later and didn't want to drive drunk. (There's a first time for everything.) So I had a little bit more. (Hic!)

    No you’re just helping clean out Cabnts from low bottles! I do it all the time.

    This "Holy Grail" Bottle Of Scotch Whisky Just Sold For £1.5 Million

    The "alternative asset" market seems to still be in a boom, judging by the bid for one rare bottle of Scotch whisky.

    A bottle of Macallan 1926 60-year-old single malt from cask number 263 sold for a world record £1.5M at auction in London, according to the BBC. Sotheby's, who held the auction, didn't release the name of the buyer.

    This sum dwarfs the previous record for a single bottle of scotch, which stood at £1.2M and was set by another bottle of Macallan from the same cask that was sold last November. Sotheby's described the Macallan 1926 from cask number 263 as the "holy grail" of whisky.

    The cask was distilled in 1926 and bottled in 1986. It yielded only 40 bottles. Sotheby's said at auction that the bottle featured was part of the "ultimate whisky collection", which consisted of 467 bottles across 394 lots. The collection sold for £7,635,619, which was double its pre-auction estimate.

    The auction marked Sotheby's first offering of spirits from a single owner.

    Jonny Fowle, Sotheby's spirits specialist, concluded: "This fantastic result is testament to the quality of the collection. It was remarkable to see so many iconic bottles break records - homage to the importance of distilleries such as Bowmore, Brora, Springbank and, of course, The Macallan."

  • Just got back from a Western Caribbean cruise. Bought some Jamaican rum (one small airline size bottle and one quart bottle) and while US Customs didn't care, Texas stuck me for $3.75 tax on the quart and $3.25 for the single serving bottle! They didn't even ask how much each bottle cost!

    Texas loves to brag about No Income Tax, but the rest of the taxes make up for the lack of an income tax. Before I moved here, a friend moved here from Virginia and told me Texas property taxes were roughly equal to what we paid in real estate AND income tax back in Virginia.

  • Apparently they are selling Skrewball in Costco now...I think it was only $27 a bottle. I might have to check it out.
