As much as it won't replace the sentimental value in the slightest I would get him to pay for two or three times the value of the whiskey, and generally make his life hell for a while

That could be impossible. My friends and I (stupidly) downed a bottle of one my father's whiskeys not knowing the value. It was a gift, but when I went to look at replacing it, the bottle cost like 10k+. I didn't even make 10k last year at my part time job.

I can't get over how childish is it is to use a mixer. you have to take that shit like a man. male or female or inbetween. you tip that glass and you appreciate the burn.

It's not "childish" to use mixers or chasers. Obviously for that kind of whiskey, yeah, that was stupid. However, it not only tastes better, but helps prevent hangovers by introducing some source of hydration. It's a smarter way to drink, and you'll notice that's what adults do, not kids who just like to get fucked up.

I guess I left a part out. I should say that exact whiskey. a Scottish aged whiskey? I can't see why anyone would use a mixer with it.

Also need I mention that soda isn't actually a form of hydration at all? I don't actually enjoy drinking. but what I'm saying is, I can't see why someone who does would do something as dumb as mixing that whiskey. and I've seen quite a few adults with just whiskey glasses. not chasers. so I don't know who you're kidding, but I'm not just some teen who wants to get fucked up. I'm just saying the bottle should've been respected.

depending what the mix is, it could actually cause de-hydration. sodas have too much sodium in them to hydrate you. it actually pulls the water out of your blood and makes you piss it out. same goes with a whole lot of other mixes or chasers. good luck kids

Being more hydrated doesn't reduce the risk of a hangover so much as drinking less alcohol does, both issues can be addressed by alternating alcoholic drinks and soft drinks, no need to do unspeakable things to the poor whisky. There are some pretty tasty cocktails involving whisky, but they usually involve the cheaper blended stuff, if you're mixing the proper stuff with anything other than a few drops of water or more whisky because you're worried about a hangover then you need to reconsider your drinking (and spending!) habits.

This isn't a bottle of SoCo we're talking about. Feel free to mix that with whatever you want, but a good, aged whiskey isn't meant to be drunk with a mixer. Just a drop or two of water and sip it slowly. If you don't appreciate the taste of a fine spirit, stick to the large manufacturers. When I'm mixing, I buy a good mass produced, but when I'm sipping, I go for the good stuff. Also, most sodas have low sodium and don't dehydrate you.

Personally, I like the taste of straight whiskey. This whole debate is really just a "to each his own" as far as what is better. Still, cracking open a fine whiskey like that and mixing it like it's the cheap stuff is a sad, sad thing XD

That's like asking why you don't let your 5 year old drive a car worth a huge penny. or any car at all. it's dumb. it's not hiding a treasure? it's keeping your affairs in order. so dumb fucks like his son can't ruin shit.

But do you put him in the front seat in a running vehicle? we're not talking about not letting him learn how to open jars. we're talking about not letting him have that bottle.

@3 Being a teenager and wanting to get wasted is no excuse for being an asshole. Op shouldn't have to hide his things in his own house.

If op found out then it wasn't kept a secret

@11 It was a secret until after the party happened. It wasn't kept a secret forever, but it was a secret.

I get now that you're correcting the original. though. severing an important body part or another does sounds quite in order.

Sounds like a good time to practice the episode when the Cosby family did the drinking game on Vanessa. Time to teach him a lesson about irresponsible drinking.

By  Mathalamus  |  22

Yeah, would you drink it anytime soon? It was just sitting there. Unused. For decades. If I was in your position, I would be glad that it was used for something.

Reply

I sure wouldn't be glad it was used - as OP describes it, it had sentimental value, and properly a pretty decent monetary value aswell - good whiskey can get very very valuable as it ages, like wine, maybe OP was saving it for a special occasion? I can atleast understand why he got so pissed at his son.

I don't drink, and even I can recognize the value of a whisky bottle that old. And that's even without the sentimental value attached! A whisky that old is something that, if you choose to drink it and not just keep it as an heirloom, you save for a really, REALLY special occasion. Like end of the world special.

Whiskey doesn't age after it's bottled. Whiskey (and all spirits) only age when they are in the barrel and able to absorb flavours from the wood.

You know nothing about whisky. First of all you do not mix whisky unless it's cheap stuff like jack or Johnny Walker. Second of all a old bottle could be worth a few honderd or thousand dollars

Yeah.. mixing scotch whisky with Pepsi is like... using your mother's wedding dress to mop the floor. Thousands of Scotsmen cried out in terror when this happened.

I'm sure if he was wanting to drink it he may have saved it for like his now disowned sons wedding or something Not for a house party where a bunch of ungrateful teens wanted to get drunk
