Scotch (American) aka in English, Single Malt Whisky
The sophisticates (or would be). Scotches go in and out of vogue but there is no way around it - you have to really acquire the taste for a scotch. Scotch tastes like crap mixed with anything beyond soda. Men love scotch. They love scotch like they love cigars and sporting trivia. It's one of those things you have to know, like wine, but scotch is not as faggish as wine. The trendy scotch drinkers just like ordering pissy scotches and knowing the difference between single malts or peat bog variables. True scotch drinkers stay faithful to the same scotch for their entire lives. Mainly because it is the only way they can convince themselves they are interesting. They spend most of the night AT the bar trying to convince the bartender of the same thing.
That's me in a nutshell.
