whisky vs martinis
Hello to all,
That is a great website…thank goodness for those subculture types!! I was happy for personal reasons to read the results of the survey. But, I must begin to say that amongst the forum members’ expertise, I feel like a fish out of water. I enjoy reading your comments and have appreciated the information and knowledge that is expressed by forum members on the world of whisky et al. In light of this, I hope you find my story a little amusing.
In November 2004, I was invited to a Bond Party with guests being asked to dress up as a Bond characters. It was a rare occurrence when informal and opulence went comfortably hand in hand. Upon arriving at the party, guests were greeted at the door with martinis that seemed to be running on tap for the rest of the night. The house was rather large and in every main room there were flat screen televisions playing Bond movies…atmosphere, atmosphere and more atmosphere. My friend, who had dressed up as Felix, (CIA and Bond’s friend) was giving me a tour of the house which also was a way of meeting up with friends who had arrived at different times. As we entered the “cigar smoking room”, it was full of 007’s, villains, Bond girls and vixens and the cigar smoke had created a light fog like impression. I could see by the box of cigars, lay a tray that held the makings for martinis. I discreetly and, of course, with the authority of a Bond girl, turned to my friend and said: “this room is full of Bond imposters; James would only be drinking whisky on a night like tonight.” Unfortunately, my opinion of their inferior taste in drink, lacked the foresight of the imposters superior hearing. To the hisses and chattels, we quickly cleared the room. Rif, raf, I say!!
P.S. Later that night, we overcame our differences on the dance floor.
