Reckon this infringes any trademarks?

Postby shifty_ben » Mon Feb 27, 2006 4:46 pm

During some fairly bored browsing, I stumbled across this

http://www.1001cocktails.com/recipes/cocktails/recipe_cocktail.php?recette_cocktail=104887&recipe=linux+cocktail

looks quite nice, but as it uses Linux in its name surely that would technically be a trademark infringement? :D

hmmm may have to make it later

You'd need to ask Torvalds - doesn't he own the trademark? ;)

<my dad is FAR bigger than your dad>
Nice, but I work in an offlicense, and have seen a 35 year old malt advertised in a regular magazine we receive. Nice as it looks I dont think I could justify spending that amount of money!
</my dad is FAR bigger than your dad>
note: this is not flamebait or any sort of flamewar, just a post by someone who probably drinks far too much :S
Incidentally its good to see someone who recognises a good whisky, I get far too many people buying glenmorangie for my taste

I quite like a bit of Talisker every now and then. The whisky in that link looks rather interesting :D bit beyond the capabilities of my wallett and my liver!

Hmm, how do they manage that? Are the still porous so that the smoke gets into the brew, or do they just chuck a handful of peat in afterwards?

I dont have too much time for glenmorangie, except for gelnmorangie madeira which I luv. I find it takes something very special, and very expensive, to beat that.

I occasionally have glenfiddich, but mainly because its the most bearable of the _cheap_ stuff.

Favourite so far is glen turret, 12yrs, haven't seen it around here at all though. Considering it was just a 12, it was spot on for me.

Maybe we should for an AUG instead of a LUG :)

A lesson in Whisky!

Postby shifty_ben » Wed Mar 01, 2006 1:06 am

LOL sounds good :D Ok the reason for the peatiness (is that a word?) is not actually all that interesting, speyside whiskies are made from a lightly peated malt, whilst Islay malt grows in large amounts of peat, it does not actually come in contact with peat at any point (apart from when it is germinating for the pedants out there) and so will taste more sort of salty and seaweedy (probably also due to the salty air in which it usually is found) . Highland malts tend to pick and choose from those two differences, hence the question about sarky comments (which ive forgotten now, but I seem to remember it being about glenmorangie containing a large amount of peat :D )
Peaty whisky's (speyside) taste more smokey, whilst islay and some highland malts, will taste more salty. Jura for example is a highland malt but is leans more towards being like a islay than a speyside. In case you are wondering why they differentiate between highland and the others it is because the flavours are often less pronounced, and of course where the malt is grown. There are actually lowland malts available, but going by the ones I have seen they are very expensive, and only for people with very large walletts!

OK lesson in whisky over, its put me in the mood for a nice galss of Talisker

PS this is just my opinion, but if you want your Whisky Chilled, DONT use ice cubes, they impair the flavour, get some of the plastic coated ice cubes isntead so it doesnt get watered down :D

[edit] Nordle I will look into glen turet at work, we may be able to get it in, depending on where you are this could be useless to you, but very good for me :D although having said that if I can get it in, i may be able to direct you to somewhere near you that can ;)
Glen Fiddich isn't bad, you are right in saying its the most bearable of the cheap stuff, try some L'aphroig (can't remember how to spell it :S ) instead, it tastes much better and is within a few quid of glenfiddich.

I'm supprised no one has mentioned my personal favorite, Johnny Walker. I had a bottle of blue label once... ok so it was a miniture bottle but damn nice while it lasted :) Unfortunately I stopped drinking whiskey alltogether when I found myself 'accidentally' getting through half a bottle a night :shock: Which is very silly and rather expensive :)
The question is, what is a mahnamahna?
The question is, who cares?
