You can tell by my typing I have fat fingers so Dan would have to pour me a 4 finger shot or in my case 2 :Tongue:

In the measurement of distilled spirits, three fingers of whiskey refers to the amount of whiskey that would fill a glass to the level of three fingers wrapped around the glass at the bottom.[5][6][7]

I mix my blended Scotch with the red (sweet) vermouth - thus making a "poor man's" Rob Roy. All over several ice cubes, of course.

I have since found out that adding some white (dry) vermouth turns that Rob Roy into something called a "Perfect" except I omit the maraschino cherry.....

I'm not a fan of what white vermouth adds to my Scotch though.... seems to take away all the qualities that make it a Scotch and turns it into a drink that doesn't taste like much at all.

Since I have found my newest favorite brand of Scotch - AnCnoc - and then the PEI Liquor Board promptly de-listed it - I have been looking in the various outlets here in town for any leftover bottles.....

I found some st one place that is not on a regularly traveled road - it's in the back of a small out-of-the-way mall - and I bit the bullet and bought three bottles for my cabinet. I suspect that by the time I am in need of more that the supplies will have dried up and disappeared. :mad:

For those that enjoy a dram or two of rich, mellow Scotch I highly recommend this one. :Oh Yeah!:

We'll be buying a nice bottle or two of scotch once we get into our new place next week. Right now all I've got in the house is a bottle of Jim Beam and some of the good ole 190proof grain alcohol (Everclear).... Basically a fist fight waiting to happen hahaha

this thread caught my interest as Peter just recently became a scotch drinker. He was introduced to it's unique qualities by a friend whom we have lost unfortunately. I have seen a few brands here that I haven't heard of which is great because it means I have new ones to add to Peter's collection. Last year his Advent calendar was comprised of Scotch, Bourbon and Whiskeys.

I am sure I posted a pic of his collection before but here is an updated one:

Resurrection time for this thread.....

I got a very pleasant surprise under the tree this year. My newest favorite "Old Pulteney" was all sold out on the Island here...no store had any in stock. So my good lady went into the larger of the two stores here in town and talked to the person who like Scotch and between them they came up with this offering that was waiting for me Christmas morning.

Silky smooth, full bodied, no harsh after-qualities, and a very, very good sipper.

Now I have two new BFF's to choose from. Old Pulteney, and Strathisla.

This from Wikipedia;

Strathisla distillery
is the oldest continuously operating distillery in Scotland. It was founded as the Milltown Distillery by George Taylor and Alexander Milne in 1786 as an alternative to the waning of flax dressing industry. They leased the land from the Earl of Seafield.

By 1830, the distillery was owned by William Longmore, later William Longmore Ltd. In 1879, the distillery suffered terribly from a fire, but was rebuilt with a bottling plant. Bought in 1940 by Jay Pomeroy, a fraudulent financier, it was later acquired in 1950 by James Barclay of Chivas Bros.[1]

A friend gave me this. Not bad.


Best scotch I’d ever had the pleasure of sipping was a 16 year old single, malt from Balbair. The bottle was brought to a fish-out at Tunkwa Lake and it was brought by a Scottish chap, that came all the way over for the fish-out. I’ve checked on line and the font appear to distill the 16 year old, single malt, just blended malts.

This is my current selection in various stages of consumption. In just this small group there is a huge variation in flavours.

During my drinking days I preferred scotch over other whiskeys, rums, gins,
and even beer. My favourites were Black Label, Mount Gay, and Johnny Walker.
After an incident where I overdid it, resulting in a couple of fights that I won which
lead to more drinks, trips to two hospitals while the cab hauling my sorry unconscious
body was escorted by the Abbotsford police as well as the Mission RCMP, I've not touched
the stuff since.

NOVEMBER 1978,I.I.R.C. while ''baby-sitting'' the teenage children of the president/.c.e.o. of ATLANTIC CONTAINER LINES /ACL, I was ''treated'' to an endless supply of quality scotch ,seated by a fire place....
upon standing,the world as I knew it, flew away ,never to be the same.....Several days of lost time and a hatred for that vile,evil,over priced libation to Satan has only grown to this day....
scotch ,aged walrus, muskrat stew and half digest shrimp from a freshly culled artic seal 's stomach are all in the same class........cold beer and a bottle of any golden TEQUILA are what I like....each to his own.

Ahh, Glenn.... moderation is your friend. :Heh, heh, heh: :ROFL:



Jim - I only use "everyday" stuff to mix drinks with, stuff like Famous Grouse.
ALL my good stuff is sipped and savored in small doses and it is always over a couple of ice cubes. :Oh Yeah!:
