For me it was a Del Maguey Pechuga Mezcal. Got to try some for free at this Mexican bar, but it costs about $200 a fifth.

1967 Chateau Lafite Rothchild. No clue on the price. My brother said it was pretty expensive. Tasted like shit. It was basically salad dressing if you had a little oil to throw in with it.

JW Blue is probably the best tasting expensive shit I ever drank. $50/shot? Something like that.

Although I still think my favorite green bottle - Jameson's or some Jameson's RedBreast [if I've got the coin] beats either of them...

That's awesome. I'd like to travel to Oaxaca and Jalisco and see some of the mezcal and tequila distilleries. I'd have to leave the wife at home, though. She's just way too fond of the stuff to make that trip feasible.

JW Blue, but Pappy Van Winkle 20 y/o was much better at half the price. 'Course it's probably more than $90 a fifth these days...

The Balvenie Portwood - 21 year aged scotch, got a bottle for my 21st to drink something as old as I was. Damn fine too, but a tad expensive compared to the usual Jameson budget.

My girls got me the Balvanie Portwood 21 for father's day a few years ago...and there was the imported Absinthe but dollar for dollar it has to be the $12.00 I paid for a single shot of Booker's at a Phoenix bar.

150 year old Napoleon Brandy. Don't know the cost, as it was offered to me at a friend's house, but I'd guess it's in the thousands.

An expensive cognac but I can't remember what it was exactly and don't know the specific price. Also some old single malts were 10 € for a shot but the cognac was more expensive I'm pretty sure.
The last thing that anyone should ever do is feel ashamed of blacking out. You were trying to get drunk last night and, goddamnit, mission accomplished.

Dingbat told me that Pappy Van winkle is going for about 75 bucks for the 15 year, and about 100 for the twenty. Either way, it was some fine hooch.
