I will be a professional simulated pilot this year. I suspect to go pro by March.

My biggest hurdle is choosing a good scotch. I'm not sure what to look for in a good scotch. Please help.

As a professional simulated pilot its imperative that I understand scotch. I'm sure you all know what I mean.

Thanks in advance.

Oh, and for you amateur simulated pilots, I want you to know that I wont forget you when I'm a pro.

somewhere between Fort William and Kinlochleven either on the A82, or more likely the B863 there is a pub with over a hundred different types of scotch, for you to mull over, to try to identify their different textures, but most of all to bloody drink.

dont try too many, if you happen to be traveling by bike, as we were http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-mad.gif

It's good to see people doing something worth while with their lives, good luck for 2008 http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/mockface.gif

There are tastes and smell that are particular to Scots Whisky. (scotch)

Smokey: more so if real peat was used as fuel.

Peaty: more so if real peat was used.

Maltiness: The more malted barley used the more maltiness. Hence the term 'single malt'

Iodine: the closer to the seashore the barley fields and aging houses are the more iodine they pick up even with a tinge of sea-salt (Laphroaig is a good example)

Smokiness: comes from the type of fuel and also somewhat the types of barrels used (bourbon barels add smoke)

Note: A 12 year old scotch of any brand,means that the youngest scotch used in the blend is 12 years old. Unless it is a single barrel 12 year old or a single vatted scotch.

Blended scotch has neutral spirits added to it according to the particular brands taste profile.
Single Malt is only single Malt but blended from different barrels and ages for the brands taste profile.
Single-vatted is scotch from one vat.

Congratulations!!!

Copper Kettle by Albert Frank Beddoe

Get you a copper kettle, get you a copper coil,
Fill it with new-made corn mash and never more you'll toil.
You'll just lay there by the juniper while the moon is bright,
Watching them jugs a-filling
In the pale moonlight.

Build you a fire with hickory, hickory, ash or oak,
Don't use no green or rotten wood; they'll tell you by the smoke.
We'll just lay there by the juniper while the moon is bright,
Watching them jugs a-filling
In the pale moonlight.

My daddy, he made whiskey; my granddaddy did too.
And we ain't paid no whiskey tax since 1792.
While we lay there by the juniper while the moon is bright,
Watching them jugs a-filling
In the pale moonlight.

In the pale moonlight.

You can keep all your alcoholic drinks.....

alcohol is a poison..... it dehydrates the body...that's why you get a headache..

so besides being a waste of money... you also lose your reputation..... maybe your driving license....maybe your job.....certainly your health....mostly you lose your sense of judgement....and sense of morals

it is also very bad karma....so frequent abuse of drugs and drink will cause future rebirth as a person of low IQ ...(after a spell in...you know where...)
