Tactical Flask

Okay, it isn't branded as a "tactical" flask, but all it is missing is a rail.

"The Flask" from McAllen and Oakley is not something that I would normally associate with fine Scotch. Oakley's influence is strong as seen in both the design and the video below. You can buy your own, but hurry as they are only making 100 of these £600 (GBP) flasks.

Happy National Scotch Day!

Happy National Scotch Day!

The link above has a few serving suggestions which go well beyond my usual "cut with a little water" concoction. (I don't always drink Scotch, but when I do...). The Smokey Scotsman looks interesting to me:
Created by Drew Z of Pour George

2 oz. The Macallan 10 Years Old
.5 oz Fresh lemon juice
3-5 Sage leaves

Method: Muddle, add ice, shake and dirty pour into double rocks glass
As always I recommend that you stick with the single malts.

Single Malt Scotch

We've been talking about single malt Scotch at work lately. Probably the best one I've tried is the Macallan 25 year old. The 25 year old Macallan is fairly expensive, but not as bad as the 70 year old Glenlivet for over $20,000. (That's a lot of ammo.)

My collection is below. For me, the most notable is the 18 year old Macallen and the 10 year old Edradour. Edradour is the smallest distillery in Scotland. If memory serves me correctly, when I did the tour, they said three guys spend three days to make a cask that then sits for years.
