Three weddings in a row coming up.
Ode to Rotgut
Buy the whiskey in the largest plastic container. Lasts a year. Forties Creek is great rotgut. Wise Deluxe is a tad better, but still rotgut. Pour a quarter inch in my plastic glass. Smells powerful, could remove paint. A sip goes down burning all the way. Hits the stomach like a mini nuclear bomb. Want some more? No thank you.
In-laws want 12 year old scotch. Pour some in a glass glass. Take a sniff -- heaven! Smells of peat, highland heather, touch of the sea. A sip goes down without noticing it. After finish of mountain spring water. Want some more? Yes, please. Hey, what happened to the bottle? Did I have that much? The in-laws drank it.
Great beer from Great Likes brewery, my favourite. They have Robocup beer, 8.5%. Goes down like water, fine hops afterfinish. More please. I'll get it. Why can't I walk? Did I just cough up my liver?
Son from Calfornia brings $150 napa wine he won. Hints of elder berry, cherries, wild flowers. Sip is smooth, afterfinish is paradise on the tongue. Want some more? Nope, dang in-laws, or maybe me.
Stick to rotgut, honest effect on your health. Stops all drinking after one glass. More? No thank you, I like to live a bit longer. Yeah for rotgut!
