Thread Name: BS: Question about Scotch
Subject: RE: BS: Question about Scotch
I had "Any bottle of Scotch old enough to vote" on my Christmas list. My son, who doesn't drink, had to ask questions but we settled on " If it sounds like it was named after a golf course, or is Glen-something that's a start. He gave me a bottle of Glenfarclas 25. I think that's aged in Sherry barrels and has a sweetness to it but it's a good sipping whisky. Generally, Glenlivet is fine with me. For a blended, I generally drink Chivas because it is generally available and generally dependable. Around here, redneck territory, I frequently can't get better than Dewars but at least Dewars has no carcinogens so I can drink it as a health food. Someone above mentioned "Sheep Dip" and I always wanted to try that if for no other reason than the name but it was very expensive when I saw it in the states.
