Holiday Cheer

Kathy the Cake Eater very properly spanks the Galley Slaves for getting worked up over blended malt whiskey, however pricey. As Kathy says, if you're going to blow that kind of jack, single malt is the better way to go. Ay-men.

I'll take it even farther, because I've developed a real taste for the Islay single malt. I luuuuuv that peaty taste. So for me this is the grand poobah of them all:


Mmmmmm......peaty taste......mmmmmmmmm.

Amen and preach it brother!!!!! Single Malt is the OOooooonnnly way to fly. I too prefer the Islays. Peaty, salty, oily, mediciney... the deeper from within the bog, the better. My fave is Ardbeg, but it's beyond my means. My current supply is a bottle of Laphraoig 10-year-old. If you tell me you actually HAVE a bottle of the 30-year, I shall be forced to detest you.

No, no. That's only a dream. I'm a 10 year guy myself.

My sister is an ex smoker and she says that one always makes her want a cigarette :) Her current fave is Scapa, followed by Highland Park, and a bartender made her try something or other last week at a Christmas party that she really liked, but I can't remember what it was. I prefer tequila, but I am fond of Macallen 12 year

Did you go through the motions of getting the "Lease" on a square foot of Islay with your Laphroaig bottle?


A man can nae dream of loftier ambitions than that.
