I'm making short work of this bottle. Glad it was left here by my bosses previous roomate and it isn't my bill I'm blowing through (ok so I've been pullin off it for the past month). I drank like 5 jwb's saturday and felt almost nothing. I'm on #2 tonight and have a hefty buzZ.

Is it ok that I'm adding cold water due to the fact I have no ice? I feel as if I'm doing something very wrong.

You can water your scotch, but do it in stages and make sure to take in the aroma after adding just a splash. In fact, try a few drops at first and stick yer nose in it, good smells.

The hostess / guide was hot and after I learned enough, I had a few more. :)

It was pretty neat - they had four 2 oz. flutes set up at each seat. they were a few of the malts that are mixed in their blends and a couple of blends. After the second setting I drank, I was high as a kite.

Scooter, did you go to the JW event at the Max Fisher Theater in Detroit? I went to one of those a couple of years ago, and it sounds just like what you've described.

I enjoy JW as often as I can. Have a bottle each of red and black sitting up in the cabinet right now. I had a bottle of green (pure malt) last New Years, but it didn't survive the evening. I really love Blue, but can't justify throwing down $200 for a bottle that very few people know how to really enjoy.

Saw some too-rich trust fund brat out in Novi order a JW Blue and Coke one night. Even the bartender looked like she wanted to slap the hell out of him.

In any regards, the Duty Free shop is usually a good place to pick up a bottle of the higher end stuff. I think it saves you upwards of $40 a bottle. If I remember right, the Green Label I bought was around $47-57 and the Blue is around $170-80ish.

Has anyone ever tried JW Gold Label? That's the only one I've never had, and from what I remember, they didn't even have it at the tasting event.

ACK! She should have refused to do it on principle... holy crap.

Never had green. Got the remnants of a bottle of Gold sitting in a decanter in the dining room. Been working on it for a couple years.

I've had blue a couple of times. One was at a fundraiser night hosted at the Havana Club above the Ruth's Chris in Baltimore by the Ravens. I got to shoot two games of pool with my brother, Michael Jackson (the wide receiver, not the pedophile) and Siragusa while smoking a Cohibas and sipping Blue Label, all for free :rock:.

That was an incredible night.
