    Scotch Or Irish

    Once, when I was probably too young to be drinking, someone who was heading off to buy the drinks for the party asked me what I wanted.  I said "Whiskey".  So they came back with bottle of Jim Beam. When I said "Whiskey", I meant Scotch.  My Dad always had...

    Nothing Like A Glenfiddich

    In Praise Of The Blenders

    Old Rip Van Winkle's

    Curious what anyone's thoughts are on Van Winkle bourbons. I was really hooked on the 12 yr special reserve for a couple years until my local liquor merchant stopped being able to get it. It was great bang for the buck at $53/bottle. I could never keep enough on hand. I had...

    I Am Not Ashamed

    Many folks nowadays are ashamed of their own heritage.  The heritage of making, and drinking, whiskey.  My family opted out of the "a still in every backyard" option some generations back.  But many of us still enjoy the fruits of the labors of our skillful...
