    Agree. Is 'Sam's Club' scotch coming! :( This can save the airline money as it can also be used for mouthwash in amenity kits.

    That is it. I'm gone!
    Smith's might not like the idea that all Smith's are 'mid-range'. The XXV and the Cellar Collection 1967 are two I think of even if they do come from Pernod Ricard. At least it is not Diageo.

    Another instance where we need a "dislike" option on MP. Guess I'll start bringing my own.

    Good idea!
    That works, although I'd prefer it to be free, included in the price, that is. Oh, well AA and US both have it.

    I wonder what it will be replaced with. I hope not Dewers as the only option. That would be bad. On average, I prefer a mixer. Dewers is not bad to mix, but I would drink something else if I want a neat Scotch.

    Woodford was a significant improvement over past bourbons that we're offered. Hopefully, we won't end up with "Passport" or some other cheap drink.

    Well on the ATL-EZE flight they ran out of Woodford and I was told that once Glenlivet runs out most people tend to go with Woodford. So I can't help but think that it'd be nearly impossible to get decent Bourbon if you like to drink a lot of it. :eek:

    It's been a long time, but I think one of their slogans was "When you run out of this, order shampoo."

    An awful step backwards for DL.

    Hoping that the combined AA/US adopts the current US glenlivet policy (stock plenty) vs the AA one, two per flight.

    Maybe we'll get lucky and DL will bring bandy or cognac back to the F cabin. Or maybe Glenlivet will stay....

    Please, Glenlivet rather than brandy. As for cognac, that's an after dinner drink, so they're not substitutes. Still, good cognac is nice.

    As well as AS (which unlike AA serves it in Y).

    KL I am told does too. It is plentiful on KL and AF in Business. FA's often do not know it by name on both airlines, but the bottles are there:D The KL schnapps inside the houses works too.
