Scotch in a Can Is REALLY Happening!

Ok, I know I posted about this around 12 months ago.  But it seems this is actually going to happen!  Panama based Scottish Spirits is actually going to be importing these things into the US markets.  At a very reasonable cost of $5 per can!  These are 12 fl oz cans, so for $5 you […]

Prohibition Ends: 78 Years of Getting it Right

It is almost so long ago to be meaningless in our world today, but it deserves remembering that there once was a time in our country’s history when drinking a beer or a whiskey was a crime!  No other legislation in our nation’s history (with the possible exception of the 55 MPH speed limit)  has […]

Christina Hendricks: Scotch is Sexy

That’s right, Mad Men’s Red Headed Bombshell thinks that scotch whisky is sexy.  It was one of the things that attracted here to her husband, Geoffrey Arend.  He ordered Scotch when they were out on a date, and she thought that was sexy.  I’d say it worked out well for Mr Arend!  You would never guess […]

Five Things I Hate About this Blog!

Yesterday I posted about 5 things I love about this blog, and they were real and honest.  But to be completely honest I began to think if there are 5 things I love, there must be five things I hate, lest there be an imbalance in the force.  So I began to think about the […]

Five Reason’s I Love This Blog

I was thinking about this today, and realized that there are several really good reasons that I love this blog.  What got me thinking about it was Jim’s post today where he refers to the Damn Blog, and I can totally relate.  Sometimes it is a bit of a grind.  Then I began thinking what […]

Dalmore Cigar Malt Reserve: The Peanut Butter and Jelly of the Whisky World

This is the first single Malt Scotch I’ve had from the Dalmore, but I can guarantee it won’t be my last!  I was sent a sample for review a few months ago, and I really gave this a good go!  Not only did I have it with a cigar, but I finished the sample and […]

Las Vegas: Would You Care For a Heineken?

Its everywhere and it is ubiquitous.  Heineken owns Las Vegas.  At least it seemed that way to me.  But let me start at the top.  My Son had a Basketball tournament in Las Vegas last week.  So we decided to make a little mini vacation out of it.  We took a couple of days after […]

Ask Men just released their 2011 Great Male Survey and it turns out that the majority of dudes (35%) consider beer to be the “ultimate man’s drink.” Whiskey came in second at 28% (I knew there was a reason it’s after beer in our blog title!), Scotch at 27%, “whatever Don Draper is drinking” (ugh) […]

Too Tired: Can Beer and Whiskey Help My Sleeping Habits?

Jura 10, What a Difference 6 Years Makes!

What a difference 6 years makes!  Last week I reviewed Jura 16, the 16 year old Single Malt whisky from the isle of Jura.  That was a very viscous fruity smelling, caramel and vanilla delight.  Jura 10 is a different character entirely.  Don’t let the bottle fool you, this whisky is a total departure from […]
