Here is a serious question that I think you can answer, considering your url is beerisforamateurs. My 21st birthday is coming up, and I was wondering what you would recommend as the first liquor to touch my lips.
My honest suggestion is get a good bottle of single-malt scotch. You'll want something that has aged at least 12 years and you'll have to pay a hefty penny for it. It is worth it, however. A good scotch is smooth and flavorful. I personally drink Chivas myself.
