    Pour some of the bottle's contents into it first (that stuff is 55% ABV).

    Oh darn, now I have to get serious. I hate that.

    But it seems the following has become relevant. Never mind why.

    Mark makes a valid point. What HW has done with, say, Rendezvous, is combine only two other whiskies. By trying 80/20, 60/40, 50/50, 40/60 and 20/80 combinations one could quicky reproduce their results. Applying your analogy, this is more like serving Restaurant A's grilled lamb chops with Restaurant B's au gratin potatoes.

    Yep. What he said.

    And as long as you're making it personal, no, I probably couldn't take the same materials as a Michelin restaurant and achieve the same results, but my wife could.

    You mean like our ability to spot an invalid analogy?

    I note that you haven't posted since the day you posted these. I also note you've visited since, so I'm going to assume you'll see this. Here in the USA we have an expression, "He took his ball and went home." This is what you're doing.

    Seriously, Steffan, it's not a way to gain friends or credibility, any more than is name-calling ("sheep") or uncivil directives. Do try to do better in the future.
