My own observations on whiskey snobbery follow. Some of you have not read these. They are especially unkind to Laphroaig.

Laphroaig is a whiskey that has a long and colorful history, and tastes so fucking awful that you could import it during Prohibition, because nobody believed somebody would drink something that bleeding FOUL for enjoyment: clearly it had to be a medicinal beverage. This stuff doesn't taste peaty: this stuff tastes like somebody's stuck a bog into your mouth, made you chew on it, then forced you to gargle with a cocktail of standing seawater and EverClear. It comes in a green glass bottle, and after having tasted it, I pour from this bottle and am confused, because the drink itself tastes like it should be green.
