Responsible Drinking.


After writing so much about the Worlds Finest Scotch Black Dog, I decided to also write about being responsible in drinking and enjoying the Scotch! Many of them out in the world feel that drinking is a hobby and is a way to enjoy and relax. Yes, we all agree that we have freedom to enjoy and we have the rights to do it. But as with rights, we also do possess some duties being a citizen and should respect others around us.

Black Dog and Curry food

Dinner at our place is generally a very quiet and formal affair where liquor is not really a part of the food. However, when we are out with friends, we try to make best use of the freedom that we get. Most of the time it is being boisterous and loud with little care about what people have to think about us. It is for this reason that we generally choose a place that has no qualms hosting us.


Black Dog TGR and Youth.



The Generation X as we were known as when we were still the baby boomers, has come a long way from where it was in terms of choice. No longer is the generation held back by the old adage that parents know the best for you and that following the parents footsteps was the way to heaven.
