Thoughts on aged alcohol
Megadriver here, Happy new year! Best wishes! You've heard me go on about how Chivas Regal 21 is the greatest thing you could ever drink, but now sitting home, drinking one last glass before going to bed and flying back to Germany tomorrow... I can't help but wonder about all that has happened since said whiskey was made.
It was made in the year 2000 and so much has happened since then. 9/11, economic crisis of 2008, war on terror, a new space race, huge advancements in computing, the retirement of the Space shuttle program, my dream cars weren't even made when this batch of whiskey was made, coronavirus, family hardships, me finishing university, meeting my girlfriend, parents retiring, making new friends, getting married and so much more.
That bottle of whiskey is like a portal back in time! Back to the year 2000, I was a kid back then! And now I'm drinking said whiskey. It's not just whiskey, I have 12 (store bought) and 33 year old (made by my grandpa) rakia too and it's a huge difference compared to regular rakia made recently.
Does anyone else get this while drinking aged alcohol and pontificate about it's history and the time that has gone by?
Or have I just had enough whiskey for the night and I'm talking nonsense...
