    Default To tie or not to tie?; the Single Malt Scotch question

    I got waylaid tonight; I was going to tie up a couple of mini-streamers, modified from the one that I posted on Saturday, but I got detoured into a discussion with Marty on travel. Since I like to talk about that topic, I reached behind myself, opened the door to the cabinet behind me and took out a malt. Dalwhinnie. It was good.

    I kept thinking about the fly, but the scotch was going down pretty well and the conversation was moving right along.

    Well, up came the bottom and, you know, I just wasn't finished yet. So, one more reach behind me; Ardberg this time. Also good.

    So, here I am now, looking at an empty snifter and wondering what ever happened to that fly (?) Oh well, I guess it will still be there when I get around to it.

    Anyone else enjoy a good single malt from time to time?

    My vice is Bourbon. I am 100% Kentuckian, even though I have moved to Chicago 4 years ago.

    Get yourself a bottle of Woodford Reserve and try it with frozen water. Pretty good stuff

    I like Woodford Reserve for bourbon but keep a bottle of Dalmore 12yr hidden in the back of the cabinet. I like mine neat as well....

    Jameson--Irish Whiskey. I have had the same disappearing fly act happen to me after a belt or two--but while I was fishing. Friends don't let friends wade into freestone rivers drunk.

    Jack daniels single barrel is very good. I also like Makers Mark. Goes down smooth.

    Coffee (almost always decaf) is my drink of choice. I stopped drinking when I became a parent, fearing that my wife or son might need clear-minded help at any time. Not trying to be a kill-joy, just saying.......

    I probably shouldn't say this, but I could live on Scotch whisky
    I drink blended. Johnny Walker when I have two nickles, Clan MacGregor when I have one. So far I've resisted single malts as I know once I go that route, there will be no turning back

    Last ten years. Goose over rocks. Plus, healthy with juice .

    Before that Bourbon. Acquired a taste for the "call" stuff so I always preferred the lower end ones.

    I always thought that Scotch was a real acquired taste. I do think that you should have tied that fly. Never know.
