Overnight Open Thread - Friday Edition (Mætenloch)

TGIF all ONTers. It's been a long hard week so tonight's theme is Whiskey!
In recent years my favorite drink has been whiskey, single malts in particular. But the catch with single malt whiskeys is that their taste can vary wildly from brand to brand and sometimes even year to year.

Until you try a brand, you don't quite know what you're going to get. Case in point: Laphroaig. Based on internet reviews I sprung for a bottle of 10 Year Old. They claim it's made from barley, water, and yeast, but they're lying - the fourth ingredient seems to be large amounts of Chloraseptic. Uggh.
And yeah I know I'll be thrown out of the cool whiskey drinkers club for saying this.

Item #1: Johnny Walker Ad - The Walking Man
This is an awesome ad from Johnny Walker done by Robert Carlyle of Trainspotting, The Full Monty, and 28 Weeks later. Actually since it's 5 minutes long, it's more of an infomercial. And according to this interview it took 2 days and 40 takes to get it right.

Item #2: The World's largest Bottle of Whiskey
Yep it's nearly 5 feet high and is holding 28 gallons of Tomintoul single malt whiskey. Hell the cork alone is bigger than that girl's head. And yes, smaller bottles are available for women, children, and girly-men.

Tonight's post brought to you by Clark, Carole, and kittehs:
