    I need a drink.

    This morning I was at one of the wholesale clubs and decided to pick up a bottle of scotch. There was a funny cap on it and when I got to the cashier she used a tool to remove it. It seems folks have been taking the caps off and pouring the liquor into other containers they bring with them or just having a free drink. They then walk out with free booze. What will they think of next

    Re: I need a drink.

    Gads... the sick ingenuity of some people. This is like first learning that in the real estate business (a friend in it tells me) they worry about people looking through medicine cabinets for drugs during open houses! I must be an old geezer as these sorts of things would never enter my consciousness!

    Thanks for that. I was in Costco before Christmas and saw a $2,500 bottle of scotch I knew I'd never get a taste of, this gives me new hope. Now if I can just figure out how to get into that locked glass cabinet.

    Fortunately, I don't have to worry about that happening to my Maker's Mark.

    Not a bourbon drinker, so I still have a bottle (half full) from about 1992.
    Bought it AT Maker's Mark (actually nearby because Maker's Mark, then anyway, was in a dry county! - go figure).

    Came across a half-full (or half empty?) bottle of Seagram's Crown Royal. God knows how long it was at the back of a cabinet. Maybe 15 years? It did not go to waste.

    Re: I need a drink.

    I'm a Scotch drinker but I keep a bottle of Bourbon for my father. His last couple of years he often got bored alone and came by my house and we would have a drink together. I sure miss those visits. Dang, that whiskey is 17 years old now. I guess it doesn't really age after being bottled though.

    Never did like Whisky, Welllll, maybe a little Irish Whisky, in moderation of course, nothing over a double, wouldn't want to overdo it!

    What looks like a wax seal seems to be plastic. Don't think that pocket torch will do.
