RE:SingleMalt

As some of you Aqua vitae fanciers are no doubt aware, United Distillers markets a nice selection of really good, almost affordable, single malts, each chosen as exemplary of the region from whence it wafts. These being Talisker, from Skye; Oban from the west coast; Glenkinchie, lowland; Dalwhinnie, central highlands; Lagavulin, Islay; and Cragganmore, Spey. Lagavulin and Cragganmore are my personal favorites, and are wonderful specimens of mild, favorful whisky and very authorative whisky respectedly. I think Juro once described Lagavulin as tasting like soaked cigar butts -- it's an acquired taste and not for the squeamish --but once acquired, the nectar of the Gods.

For the curious, visit the web site at www.scotch.com (really). This is not a commerical message as I would never align myself with a firm that promotes putting ice(gasp)in whisky.

Scots, wha' the hell,
