    If you like whiskey already then you're on the right track. A path to loving scotch begins as such:

    Go to store
    Buy some cheapish scotch (Dewars white label, johnny walker red, crawfords)
    Mix it with cola
    ???????
    Profit

    Also once you get past stage one, then you can go one to buy some single malt scotch and drink it neat like a man.

    if you had to buy one bottle what would you buy, that isnt too expensive

    and it was preposterous and amazing and black as the night

    If you want to get acclimated to whisky in general go for any sort of canadian whisky. Canadian Club or Seagrams runs around 15$ for a fifth, and I enjoy it mixing wise. Or for super cheap go for canadian mist.

    surprising!

    Not really surprising. Guinness has a chocolate taste to it, which appeals to a lot of ladies.
    It's also thick and rich enough and goes well with steaks and ribs and such that gentlemen enjoy it also.

    Basically, it's the perfect beer if you're not a pissant little kid.

    The stuff is fantastic to mix with, I've had Captain's and it tastes Meh compared to Jerry which is supposed to be 'cheap' on it's own anyways. It's like $28 Canadian here so not a bad go at all.

    hard alcohol makes me feel terrible

    like the shot tastes pretty bad and then I swallow it and it tastes worse and then my stomach feels terrible for the next 10 minutes

    I can drink anything else like what but one shot and I feel all gross

    Fake edit while I wait for the post timer: I recently discovered Jameson and I actually really liked it
    Someone bought me a shot of it on my birthday and it went down so easy

    Real edit: for relaxing times... make it Suntory time

    I got some Suntory whiskey while I was in the Japan.

    Because what the fuck is this at the 7/11? Whiskey in cans? How can that go wrong?

    My intolerance for rum, on the other hand, is legendary. Legendary like mesh trash cans and scaled fences and broken apartment windows.

    And if you were in Japan, you could. Like, in the streets, outside the marts, if you wanted to.

    Although I don't guess they call them marts in Japan? Where is Houk when you need him to answer a question about Japantimes?

    I can't remember what the Japanese call their little marts.

    Lagavulin is my scotch of choice when I want something strong and smokey, Dalwhinnie for the lighter side of things. Oban is pretty dandy, too.

    :D I am totally bringing some scotch the next time I see you, Usagi.

    Which reminds me, I have about an inch and a half of Dalwhinnie in the cupboard, I should take care of that tonight. I've been on a cognac kick of late (Remy Martin) but all this talk of scotch has me in the mood for something a bit pictish (or maybe thats the lack of sleep).

    they call them 'conbini', which is just short for convenience store

    also, whenever you teach a japanese person that one of 'their' words actually comes from english or whatever other language, it absolutely blows their mind

    like most japanese people dont have a friggin clue that 'conbini' is short for anything. hell, the other day a student called me 'fashionable' and i was like 'oh how do you know an english word like that?' and she was like 'what, that's english?!'
