It's back there with the World Championship Riesling
I stopped by the liquor store after getting a haircut to pick up a spare bottle of something to have a Friday night nightcap with. We have a handful of liquor stores in crashpadville and surrounding areas. A couple are newer chain stores, with the remainder being smaller and older ma and pa places. I stopped in at one of the older ones, simply because it was on the way home from the hair salon and the nice new chain one would be a longer drive and I like to business with non-chain stores.
I had stopped at this one after the last haircut and bought a $79 bottle of single malt and the part time clerk about had a heart attack at the cost (they don't appear to do a brisk single malt business). This time, I just went for Jameson. I had a little trouble finding it, it was actually with the American Whiskeys and bourbon. The clerk, bless his tattoo covered heart, took his time and helped me locate it. As he rung it up he said. . .
"What is this?'
I said "it's Irish Whiskey".
He holds up the green bottle and, I'm not kidding you, says
"Does it taste like MINT?"
OK, perhaps I'm a scotch/whiskey snob, but that just made me hold in the laughing until I got to the truck.
