Does Randal drink single-malt scotch ...

[ #24361 ]
From Saturdays Globe and Mail (couldn't find an online link) talking with Neil Bauman about Geek Cruises:

Okay, so who parties the hardest? According to Bauman, those who use Perl, a Web programming language. "They're a bright group of people. They like single-malt scotch and they're connoisseurs of beers."

  • Actually, Neil is a larger consumer of scotch than I am.

    However, I do indeed partake in such scotches as The Macallan [themacallan.com] (as old as they'll get for me, the 25 year is exquisite).

    I prefer microbrew beers when in my home area, or a good vodka tonic otherwise. That's where the second part of his phrase came from, for sure.

    However, I'm clearly not the only scotch drinker in the open source communities... nearly every big convention has hosted a "scotch BOF" (birds of feather) session.

    I'm referring to the booze preference obviously.
