But Glenfiddich is a single-malt whiskey and as such is a landlubber's drink... so you're risking angering the sea gods by drinking it.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

Aye, single malt it tis, but oh so good, especially when the ice starts to melt and condensation forms on the glass.
In Scottish Gaelic, whiskey, uisge beatha, literally means the water of life
I'm sure that if Poseidon ever slipped this nectar of whiskeys, anger would be the last thing on his mind.
Meanwhile, I'll take my chances.

We sailed around St Barts this year and got into the vanilla rum shots they would give you after your meal. Great way to finish off a day of sailing and a great meal.

I'm not disagree that Glenfiddich is good stuff... just not a "sailor's" drink.

Pain Killers are great, but my favorite drink on the boat is Red Sangria in ice. It taste great, is cool and has 13% alcohol. The brand Real Sangria is one of the best.

If I had to have just one rum, it'd be Pyrat XO Reserve. This is my hands down favorite.

I also like Pyrat Cask (AKA Cask 23 or Cask 1623). It is a wonderful rum, but IMHO, not $170/bottle better than XO Reserve.

Now while I haven't tried this yet, I'd like to get some Big Black Dick Rum just to be able to watch the lubbers faces when I put it on the table.

O' course I still be workin' me way through the Caribbean mates, so me list may grow.

If staight, I drink pyrat xo reserve (Have never seen many of these names listed in the liqour stores in vegas)

If with soda, I drink Captain and diet coke (seems to taste better than regular coke)
