hard scotch is ron burgundy's drink
"I love scotch," he proclaims, as he sips away. But Ron Burgundy has nothing on Blue Collar Comedy comedian Ron White. For White, scotch is more than just a performance-enhancing drug - it's a lifestyle.
"I have two sides of my bar," White said over the phone from his home near Atlanta. "One side is the scotch bar, which has the finest selection of scotches I have ever seen, which was the goal. And then the other side of the bar is all the crap I don't drink, just in case somebody stops by."
His taste in whiskey is impeccable, so if you plan on bringing a "gift" to his "Drunk in Public" performance this Saturday at Wachovia Arena, you'd better pony up.
"For a while, it was Johnny Walker Blue, but I get too out-of-hand on it so I have like 40 bottles of that and that's $225 a bottle," he said, pausing to take another sip of his glass of 18-year-old Johnny Walker Gold. "Then I switched to 25-year-old McCallen, which is even more dangerous and it's about $325 a bottle. They come in coffins. They're packed so well, you can actually kick them to California and they wouldn't break. One tour promoter gives me 30-year-old McAllen, which is $500 a bottle if you can find it. So I have four or five bottles of that."
He drinks Dewars scotch. Pronounced "doo-ers"
He's so funny! Maybe it's Maker's Mark? Johnnie Walker~Red or Black?
Is he really drinking when he's on stage performing? Or do you think it's part of his act.
I mean, can you really drink while performing like that? Smoking cigarettes is one thing, but drinking...
My boyfriend says it's all part of his act, he's not really drinking at all.
Maybe is bourbon, more shouthern, lol.
