RE:In praise of the

Have to chime in on the Speyburn...

The name got my attention, the price sent me to the counter with a bottle, and the all around drinkability will have me coming back for another. The best $20 I ever spent. It's not Sheep Dip, but for the money, it doesn't have to be.

Unlike Juro, I do love the 40 year Laphroaig. Juro, bars quite typically water it down and I have to agree that the taste really suffers as a result. If you haven't tried it straight out of the bottle, you might want to give it a second chance.

BTW, chum salmon sound like the freshwater equivalent to Hickory shad. You won't win prestige for catching them, but they sure are a heck of a lot of fun to chase.
