I was always of the opinion that if a man can't pronounce the scotch he ordered the bar keep shouldn't give it to him and he should then be laughed out of the bar.

Nice choice of whisky there, DG. Lagavulin 16 has become my go-to now that Macallan 18 has nearly doubled in price. Can't really afford either, but IMO Lagavulin is the better "value."

Is it a cop-out that I like the easily pronounced Highland Park?

Laphroaig or GTFO!

Hah! Lagavulin comes from Islay, pronounced Eye-la, not Izlay.

How to pronounce Lagavulin:

"Glor-uh-fide poy-zunn".

Also how to pronounce any other ethanolic beverage, or any other sort of "recreational" drug.

Selah.

Yes, of course, By that definition, a glass of Chateau Latour 1961 (or of something like a simple honeysuckle-flower mead) is merely "glorified poison." Bravo. Well done. How nice it must be to live in a world where there is no nuance of any kind. It makes that combination of one's self-righteousness, moral superiority, and exceedingly-well-justified know-nothingism quite the thrilling experience, no?
