Decks and bindings are good to go this year, and I picked up new boots during spring sales, so the only thing on my wishlist this year is possibly new outerwear. Keeping my eye out for a good deal on an Arc'teryx Sidewinder or Patagucci Powslayer jacket. Definitely want to go lightweight shell for touring.

I just prefer vodka or tequila to sip on...
On the other hand I like my beer to have enough hops to strip the paint off a car, and most people find something like that extremely bitter and pine tasting.

There are hundreds of different single malt Scotch with thousands of different tastes. To generalize “they all taste like xy” is rude. You’ve got so many colors, depending on the distillery, the years they were stored, in which cask, how they were bottled, ad infinitum. Yes, there are some Scotch that are rough and come close to mouth numbing turpentine some Laphroaig for example smell and taste of medicine cabinet (iodine) and fishing boat (salty, seaweed) or a Bruichladdich Octomore (“the smokiest whisky in the world”) will taste as if you chew directly on a piece of charred peat. But such whiskies are for those who like the extremes and enjoy the richness and above all are not thought to begin the evening with. If you want to try such rich ones, you should have a quiver of different whiskies with different strength of characteristics and begin with a smoother one, later in the evening one a bit richer, and end with those ones you might call turpentine-like if you’d start with them right away. To start right away with an Octomore is really like having a bat swing right in your face .

Talisker 57° North (from the Isle of Skye) or a Laphroaig 10 Year Old Cask Strength (Isle of Islay) (NOT quarter cask or the standard 10y! These are the medicine cabinet ones). If you get hooked and want to spend a little more, Ardbeg (Isle of Islay) Supernova or Ardbog or Renessaince would be high class ones you might get your hands on.
