It's the end of the world. What's the last thing you want to drink before you die?

It has to be something you have in your bunker now because, "of that day and that hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels which are in heaven, neither the Son, but the Father." Mark 13:32

Ardbeg Corryvreckan or Uigeadail - peat & smoke before I go to...

This is not a trick question is it? I mean I can have both a woman and a bottle, right?

BMH 16 and Very Old Scout 19, Bowman SB. Maybe some Willets if I have time.

I'm hitting my last bottle of :bowdown:Van Winkle Family Reserve Rye from the initial release (before they started adding letters to the bottle numbers.) ... Probably have to share it with my wife :icon_pidu:, ... so then on to the Old Rip Rye from the same era. Doubt I'll have to share much of that one :drinking:. Finally, one of my Blanton's Straight from the Barrel (if I can still reach for it :deadhorse:.)

Wild Turkey Kentucky Spirit. Or Old Forester Birthday Bourbon 2002 release. Or both.

Gotta crack my Lagavulin 30, just to know what it tastes like before I go. I would happily trade places with edo though. Would have gone rye, but I like the idea of fire and brimstone being greeted by peat and smoke from my final glass. If I have time I'll move on to the very last of my Longrow 7 Barolo finish, before approaching a CS BlackAdder Bowmore 14.

So many choices and my picks may change within the next five minutes but I think I'd go out with Pappy 15, something from WT (either CGF or 12 year old split label) and some Lagavulin 16. Damn. I forgot the Four Roses. And what about some rye? And a few beers?:grin:

If it's only one thing and I have to already have it, then Port Ellen 9th Edition 1979/2009 30 Year Old.

Great idea for a thread Chuck!

Great idea for a thread Chuck! I second that!

And Wryguy, maybe we should meet in the middle and enjoy 60 years of aged Islay?

A fine idea. First sign of flaming boulders in the sky and I'm grabbing my bottle and jumping in the car. Next stop, Independence Hall Philly. See ya there Yeti. Drinking with the abominable snowman has always been a lifelong dream. Didn't think he would have tastes as refined as a Port Ellen ;)

Yeti
02-06-2013, 07:45
I'll grab a 1970 Bowmore and 1981 Brora before I hit the road. What the hell, right? Might as well drink our way out of here. Just don't tell Chuck we're breaking the rules :-)

This does remind me that I am going to have to drink these treasures some day...

Since it's the last day, I'll pour Compass Box The Last Vatted Malt....I bought my first bottle because I could pass up the jab at the SWA and discovered that it was an exception blended malt....and if I have time for a 2nd pour, I'll crack open Compass Box The Last Vatted Grain.

I'm staying away from my smokey Islay's....figure if it is the Apocalypse there might be a lot of smoke in my future !

smokinjoe
02-06-2013, 07:55
Just to cover my bases, I'm going to first sip on the Angel's Envy. :pope:

Then, I guess I'll open the Maker's Mark VIP bottle that I had made up when my daughter was born, and is sealed with instructions to not open until her 21st birthday in 2019. Any chance we could delay this Apocalypse thing until then? Of course, as she is entering her teen years now, I seem to live an Apocalyse in the house every day... :crazy:

Maybe it will finally give me a good reason to open that WT Tradition that keeps getting put off.

I'm determined not to have any special bottles left to my estate. My heirs can buy their own.

Abraham Bowman rye and bourbon, probably some FR's '09 Mariage . I plan on being shit faced

Probably reaching for some 4R 2012 SmB LE.

You beat me to it! I've only been a bourbon enthusiast for a couple of years, but choosing this one would be easy!

erborman
02-06-2013, 09:27
I am amazed how many are not picking bourbon!

For me, I open my last bottle of A.H. Hirsch. No reason to let it go to waste.

Oh I'll be drinking Bourbon, at least two bottles since I have two hands.

Providing that my wife is with me for the end of the world, it would be Champagne. My wife doesn't care for brown liquor. If I'm alone, I'll drink the last of my S/W Van Winkle 20 year. Or maybe the Stagg, might want to go out with a bang.

Yeti
02-06-2013, 09:48
I think once the impacts start and the fires spread that Stagg and a straw should get you properly anesthetized.

higgins
02-06-2013, 09:56
If we're wanting maximum intake before the end, I'm going with OGD 114. No need for a straw with that wide-mouth bottle.

jcg9779
02-06-2013, 10:13
Probably some VOF to start. Then some 2007 WLW, then FR 2009 Mariage. That should do the trick.

Dolph Lundgren
02-06-2013, 10:14
I've got a bottle of 25yr old Willett Family Reserve Rye and Balvenie Tun 1401 (batch 3) that I've been saving for the coming asteroid/plague/nuke war/environmental collapse/alien invasion...

Clavius
02-06-2013, 10:36
OGD114. A couple pours of it and I wouldn't care too much about the world ending!

thiemb
02-06-2013, 10:41
Definitely something from Heaven Hill - probably PHC '12.

I've also got a bottle of JPS17 Batch#1 that I've been saving, so that'll get opened too.

squire
02-06-2013, 10:45
I'm thinking funnel rather than straw.

Subtle suggestion to just 'do it' because the world as we know it IS ending right now and right now and right now . . .

The present is constantly being annihilated, so I guess I'd be eating and drinking and doing whatever I'm already eating and drinking and doing.

Well I haven't tried it yet but it might have to be the recently acquired Barry Crockett Legacy Irish Whiskey. If that fails me I still have some cask strength Angels Envy and a plethora of PVW/BTAC options to fall back on. Probably the WLW would be the first choice among those.

And their is always lots of rum and tequila! The JM Rhum 1994 comes to mind first.

I am getting a little buzz just thinking about it!

Besides, I've always wanted to meet my ancestor Satan and shake him by the tail...

WAINWRIGHT
02-06-2013, 17:38
The end of ends,I am going on a full on rye roll vertical from hell of VWFRR,Ritt23,ABCS#2 and BMH23,might as well go out in style!

Following the guidelines, one and only one, VWFRR.

It's the end of the world, Big Ed. Don't forget your friends!:grin:

P.S.--No single malts?

Friends welcome, unclebunk. But for you that flight out of O'Hare is gonna be bumpy. United isn't likely to be able to fly above the fire and brimstone hailstorm, and the best you'll get on the way over is Jim Beam Black, ...till they run out, ... after about 35 minutes under the circumstances.

p.s. I don't thinks the single malts would follow the VWFRR very well.

HighInTheMtns
02-06-2013, 19:14
Honestly maybe some ORVW10/107 or maybe whatever IPA is in my fridge. Not the nicest bottle I have but I think it'd be the one.

Cigar Dan
02-06-2013, 19:49
Most likely the GTS '12, but possibly the HP18 (if I wanted a single malt). The 2012 isn't the best Stagg that I've ever had, but it is the only one currently in my possession. The HP18 has a special place in my heart, so I'd give that some serious consideration.

Restaurant man
02-07-2013, 05:20
This is a fitting thread because my wife has accussed me of "bourbon doomsday prepping" on more than one occasion I've got a Very Old Fitzgerald I'll be cracking for the occasion and I'll be tasting (guzzling?) it along side the 107 proof 23 year old rip (decanter). It's been nice knowing you fellas (and ladies) :pope:

I once flew on a little puddle jumper from Albany, NY back to NYC and every 30 seconds or so for a period of about 45 minutes was like hitting a speedbump going 50 mph due to the extreme turbulence. To prevent myself from shitting my underwear, I drank every beer she had to calm my nerves (they didn't have any booze on hand). And it was BUDWEISER! Talk about the end of the world!:lol:

I debated on going with the Lag 16 or HP18. Both are fantastic, and I've been to Orkney and consumed it at the source with a dear Scottish friend, so it's special to me too. Aw, shit. Just give me both!:grin:

I am fond of my Lag 16 too, but I have to be in the right mood for it. It isn't an everyday pour for me. OTOH, the apocalypse isn't your typical day!

I'm a bit of a hophead myself. Sierra Nevada Torpedo is the current IPA residing in my fridge.

I take back my earlier selection- forgot I still have some FR 120th anniversary down there...that would definitely be first choice.

Well in that case, I'm changing my vote to the PHC '07, as my one and only.

Kalessin
02-08-2013, 17:40
Four Roses 2012 Single Barrel LE, 2012 Small Batch LE, and Mariage 2009. The best bourbons I have at the moment. And since it's a blizzard out there and all of Massachusetts is shut down, it seems like time for a tasting right now!

If I make it through those, there's always a bit of Lot B to chase them down.

smknjoe
02-08-2013, 17:46
...as a chaser. Ha!

That's a tough one...maybe some 4R 2011 SmB LE, OGD 114, and a nice wheater. Reverse that - start with a good wheater and move on to the spicier stuff.

tigerlam92
02-09-2013, 20:16
I'll be sipping rapidly my VXOF and the VVOF18.
