  1. Looks like you are all doing a great job, loved the Entropia Times issue. By the way I am a TskTsk so no loot for me = (

    Keep up the great work and news on all the Planet Partners. I have been enjoying your site for a while now and wanted to make a formal account.

    Hey Ed :) Really great to see you on EP, thanks - and may I wish you a warm welcome!

    And thank you for the nice words about EntropiaTimes Magazine. A lot of dedicated Entropians have been working on it - and are already planning the next issues (next in December).

    I promise you, that we will definitely keep updating EP with News about all the planets/planet partners and the community living in our awesome Universe!

    We recently opened up our new MediaCenter with MindStar9 in front - and the MediaTeam (actually the whole E-Team) have already accomplished a lot - and is cooking behind scenes on a lot of exciting news, interviews etc.
    And hey, take a whisky for that cigar :alcohol:... Bowmore on the house :D

    Welcome :)

    That seems to be the tendency with all signs these days, but Cyrene's gonna fix that, right? :P

    I've been a non smoker for 2 or so years now but there's a Santa Damiana Corona waiting for my next "candy day".

    Well hello there Ed ... really nice to see you here. :)

    You can probably guess by now that the community overall is very excited and waiting patiently for planet Cyrene to align with the other planets in our universe. What sneak peeks we've had in various places has intrigued us even more.

    These are exciting times ... welcome, and you have a private message. :D
  5. Thanks for the warm welcome Lykke and A good Scotch Whisky is always welcome with a fine cigar :bandit:(I really like this guy)

    Kalanan, good for you on the smoking. I actually do not smoke but I enjoy a good cigar every other week with my Pops.

    MS9 (can I call you MS9?) Thank you for the welcome as well, and BTW you have a PM :D

    (Edits for spelling especially since they only call it Whiskey in the states, forgot in Scotland it's called Whisky )

    Welcome Ed,

    great to see an Planet Cyrene Official in here.

    Cyrene is definitely the planet I'm looking forward to the most. And it's not only me.

    (Reminds me to finish the restructuring of the Cyrene wiki page...)
  7. Yup, so far it seems like Cyrene might become my new home. Exciting!

    Ireland and Wales also use the additional E. Sorry, whisky is a major hoby of mine (to the extent we run a whisky tasting company. Unfortunately, I have only 1 customer, and that's the guy typing this reply right now). Should you ever get near Denmark, shoot me a message, and I'll hook you up with a free tasting ;)

    Do you have any specific distillery or area preferences?

    Also, welcome to EP and thanks for your kind words. Now let's see how we can serve you and your team even better :)
  11. I used to manage a bar where we had 52 single malts at all times , one for every week of the year :alcohol:

    Hi and welcome Ed :wave:

    oh my oh my ...nothing happens then all of a sudden all hell breaks loose :D


    That's my way of saying Hi Ed welcome at EP very very nice to have you onboard (and as you know i'm looking forward to planet cyrene a lot)

    I misread that the "malts" as males at first ...hehe funny interpretation of what you wrote :D
  13. Well as there was a Army camp a mile down the road that applies too :naughty:

  14. Welcome. I have a bugbite on my finger. It really itches. Will I be able to have a doctor on Planet Cyrene check this out? Or maybe an entomolgist? My familiarity with the local fauna is rather poor and Im not sure whether I should scratch this or whether doing so will cause thousands of tiny bugs to come bursting out of the side of my finger!!!

    Please help me. This is quite disconcerting.

  15. Thanks to all for the warm welcomes.

    Admin. I am still a novice of the Scotch Whisky game as I am more of a Gin man but have been growing very fond of it while enjoying my cigars. Still I am a weirdo in that I also enjoy Champagne and sparkling wines with cigars as well. I am a very unorthodox type of chap. That said I would love to try any recommendations you might have. I have already tried most of the Walker Labels, 100 Pipers, Bushmils (Irish i believe), and almost all the american brands of whiskey and Bourbon. As you can see, if it is mainstream back in the States, I have probably tried it. So Looking for something new.
  16. Try Yamazaki. Its an excellent Scotch, very highly rated. We do a whiskey tasting party once a year at my house and it was a big hit.

    Sorry, isnt that a single malt from Japan?? :headscratch: - believe we tried it aswell (wasn't that the one, Peter?)

    Johnny Walker Black Label is a very nice blend. I highly enjoy it myself :) I'm not too familiar with the bourbons, but I have tried a few. I much prefer the Scottish stuff, though.

    Irish generally is more smooth, due to their triple-distillation. Scotch-wise, I'd say easy entry-level whisky is LowLands, which is mostly also triple distilled. If you can find it, and if you can afford it, RoseBank was an excellent distillery. The distillery has been closed, leading to steeper prices, but in Europe, 100 EUR will usually get you a bottle (though not one of the really nice ones).

    I'm really not sure about availability in the US, but other nice "beginner" whiskies are most Speysides. Glen Morangie is probably easy to come by. They offer a variety of different flavours, and I really like the portwood finish one (The Quinta Ruban) or the Sherry finish (Lasanta).

    Personally, my heart is in the Island and Islay whiskies, though. They're characterized by saltiness, due to being distilled and maturing near the ocean. Most of the Islay distilleries use local peat in the "Kilning" process (which is when they kill off growth in the barley by heating it, in order to ensure the sugars will not be consumed by the germination process), which shines through in the end-product as well. Islay and Island whiskies typically have a smokey and somewhat oily taste to them. Ionide is also a typical smell originating from an Islay.

    It's not a typical beginner whisky, and definitly not for everybody, but I'm absolutely smitten with the stuff. You can wake me up for a Laphroaig any day!

    Shameless plug: If you're interested in the whole distillation process and want some tips for experiencing whisky in the most optimal way, have a peek at There's a whole section on the distillation process there, and a seperate section on how your senses are involved when you have a wee dram.

    Yup. Yamazaki 18 years old. Also a fantastic, albeit pricey, whisky. What struck me with that was the sheer complexity of the dram. It literally fellt like experiencing wave after wave of different flavours and sensations in the mouth. Very yummy.

    Ed, Lykke, admin,

    you are doing really well in turning this into a cigars and whiskey debate. But it's too late. We see through it and know that Ed came to buy -the biggest independent EU forum- before the other planet partners wake up ;)
