What Will You Be Drinking Election Night? [Vanity}
9/30/12 | dagogo redux

Posted on 09/30/2012 7:28:56 PM PDT by dagogo redux

Another weekend vanity. :)

What will you be drinking election night? Will it vary depending on the outcome?

I ordered a few fine bottles of Scotch from Master of Malt last spring. Because I got the very last bottle produced from this select cask, one of my neighbor friends in our little enclave here decided that, win or lose, we would open and consume this rare and highly rated cask strength Islay Single Malt called “Berry’s Own Selection”; an unchillfiltered batch made by Caol Ila Distillery in Port Askaig in 1980. It was drawn in 2011 from Cask #4938 and bottled by Berry Brothers & Rudd, a London firm started in 1698, who apparently won the Whiskey Magazine “Icons of Whiskey Independent Bottler of the Year Award” two years ago when they bottled up this treasure.

The description on the bottle, besides some history, is enticing: “This expression gives subtle yellow fruit skin aromas with outcrops of linseed and polished leather, Balkan Sobranie tobacco and brine. The palate is unctuous, again fruity, (apple crumble), and manifests a peaty, oaky structure. A fine old Caol Ila, this finishes with a savoury, briny appeal.”

Ummm, ummm, ummm.

Whether to mourn the death or celebrate the possible resuscitation of our nation, this nectar should be appropriate for a night whose memory is not likely to fade in whatever time we have left.

Anyone else making any plans, libatious or otherwise, for the grand evening?

Well it depends. Victory then it will be beer as the results come in and a fine glass of aged scotch to wrap up the evening.

Loss, bread and water, might has well get a jump start on the next four year’s economy.

“Loss, bread and water, might has well get a jump start on the next four year’s economy.”

I guess bread and water is just another step down from the bread and circuses he’s handing out now.

Non alcohol beverages in our home, maybe some hot coffee with skim milk.

Expectations very low for election night. I think the masses are still controlled by MSM and their stable of pollsters, despite internet, talk radio etc. In fact I think the MSM has strengthened recently it`s hold on the masses.

Being the unsophisticated dummy that I am, and not having a clue what you're talking about in your description of a bottle of booze, I'm going to have a Bud.

If anyone desires, I'll go to Google and copy and paste a post of what Bud is made from and famous for.

Awesome Geek points for knowing that, BONUS GEEK Point question name the Character in the Picture with Captain Kirk AND name the brother of the actor playing that Character.

The sweet, sweet tears of the local SIEU, in a crystal glass lined with 24K goldplate, wearing a balloon giraffe of Romney happiness on my head, dancing outside the hotel balcony where I’ll be, in my ad-hoc Romney-themed underwear.

Any wine that goes well with a roasted beet and goat cheese salad. Picked a few beets from the garden this afternoon, roasted them up, and combined them with some chevre. Outstanding! I’ll duplicate the dish on election night and serve it with an Italian red or a California cab. That way, without regard to the result, at least I will be happy with our food and drink.
