Blaming Singleton

I was going to post something really profound tonight. I was going to post and respond to NE's latest comment too.

But alas, while out walking Murphy I was waylaid by a neighbor who wanted my opinion on a bottle of whiskey that he'd been given, he not being a whiskey drinker himself.

It was a Singleton single malt, twelve years in the aging. And oh my, was it ever smooth. It might be one of the best Scotch whiskeys I've ever tasted. In fact I had to have a couple more glasses, just to be sure.

But now I don't feel like blogging. And I don't type that well right now, either.

See you tomorrow.


  1. Lucky you. I never liked whiskey until I went to Ireland and did some tours there. I guess it's a taste you don't appreciate when you're 20.

    I keep a bottle of Jameson around and usually have a shot straight up on cold Friday nights.

    I hope you feel better soon.

  3. As much as I enjoy a good single malt Scotch, I have been very restrained (almost but not quite to the point of zero) in my purchases of the vital fluid ever since the Lockerbie Bomber, Abdelbaset Mohmed Ali al-Megrahi, was released by the Scottish government. I have been making do with single barrel bourbons from Kentucky, and, occasionally, Seagram's Crown Royal from Canada.

    Perhaps I shall resume my Scotch whisky procurement habits if Kenny MacAsshole (sometimes erroneously spelled "MacAskill), the guy who was so quick to release al-Megrahi, is dumped by the Scottish government from his post of Cabinet Secretary for Justice (or, better still, run out of the Scottish Parliament altogether).

  4. Hope the morning finds you hale and hearty... A night of a good scotch usually doesn't do much harm! :):)

  5. Nice. So very nice.

    Don't you just live good neighbors!

  6. LOL- enjoy the hangover :-)
