My worst two are:
Afternoon Delight by Starland Vocal Band
and
Horse With No Name by America

I cringe whenever I hear either!

It does have a bit of sweetness. Hit it again in a few days to see if the perception changes, I like it neat.

Then that link brought me to SKU - whiskey blogger.

That is one hell of a list.

And a quick way to tell if something you are drinking is made somewhere completely different! ;)

I like craft cocktail bars like that who make their own ice slabs. The only downside is sometimes it is difficult to drink the drink around the chunk of ice. I was at one who had this contraption for making the round ball ice and it slowed getting a drink down to a crawl and eventually they ran out of ice to use in the ball maker. Not a fan of gimmicks which lead to slow service.

Costco Scotch info
https://thewhiskeywash.com/scotch-whiskey/steve-lipp-man-behind-great-private-label-scotch/

Turns out the nasty solventy character of the $18 handle of Costco Blended lessened after a few glasses were poured out the the bottle opened for a short while. Turns out it ain't a bad glass so I won't be pouring it out. However I am not sure I'll buy another.

2001 a Space Odessy had a good soundtrack.

But the most notable song was written in 1896 ;)

If you are talking was ONLY a soundtrack written for a movie then you won't be left with much since most have a song or two written for it and the rest is from elsewhere. If it had to be one performed for a movie then I'll take When Harry Met Sally as I have played that CD many, many times over the years.

Take The Wall for instance. The album was 1979 and the movie was 1982.

Sampled the pure malt last night neat. Very enjoyable, but a little hot. Next time will be over a big cube, along with the Coffey. Gotta go slow, as both are MIA back here at home


I typically have the coffey neat. It is a tad warm, but oh so tasty!

I really enjoy the Coffey Grain, I'll be interested to hear your thoughts on both. Pure Malt is MIA around here so far.
