Talisker

ahhh....tonight, I'm basking in the glow of a exquisite Talisker...from Skye....

.."speed, bonnie boat, like a bird on a wing...over the sea to Skye"...

I treat myself sometimes, after a particularly good day at the office...and today was one...I actually saw some PROGRESS on the project I'm working on...so..you can keep your Miller, baby....it's Talisker Time....

oh...and as a result, blogging will be sporadic and drunken this evening...so, be sure to tune in later tonight..by then, I'll be quoting old lovesong lyrics, R.W. Service poems, and old Ronnie Regan speeches...

Take care of yourself, Donnie....I'll be raising the toast to "Absent Friends" tonight as well..

..and to Sisoflexx and Family and John and Beth, my deepest sympathy....

If you can find it, here's the best scotch in the world: Springbank 12 year old 100 proof (do NOT get any other Springbank, it's not worth it).

Aberlour a'bunadh is pretty good, too, but doesn't approach the best scotch in the world.

Just left a "whiskey fest" at my favorite bar. There were over 30 different scotch whiskeys to try. You should move to Austin just for this bar if you like scotch.

I prefer different scotch at different times. For a Rusty Nail, I like the sweetness of the basic Aberlour 10. When I want to define scotch to a drinker of American whiskey, I get out the Talisker. When I want to fascinate my palate, it's the 21 yo vatted White and Mackay. When I'm reading W E B Griffin, it is, of course Famouse Grouse. If I'm just looking for a buzz, why go beyond Clan MacGregor?
