Yes Bob, but maybe not snobbery so much as I find Canadian whiskey too sweet and then people mix it with high fructose corn syrup sweetened soda and it becomes a sure fire formula for feeling.... well... like shit. For me there is nothing like a good sipping whiskey shared over several hours with good companions and good stories.
Yes P.J. but only if I don't have to go anywhere but a beach chair the next day. I love the taste of a finely made tequila, especially with fresh citrus juices but oh boy the hangover. One tequila, two tequila, three tequila... floor.
