Knockando 12

Posted by docsmooth on 2012/07/21

The smell of this scotch overpowers,
My noses’ detection of flowers,
But the taste is so smooth,
And soft like vermouth,
With pinched nose I will drink it for hours.

Written at Park Inn by Radisson, Heathrow Airport, London, UK.

Woodford reserve Bourbon

Posted by docsmooth on 2010/09/05

Normally, I don’t drink bourbon, but since I did the tour, it deserves its place…

Bourbon is formed from many barrels,
The summers act like a heat bellows,
Forcing this spiced drink,
Through each barrel’s chink,
Until it comes out and is mellow.

Elijah Craig 18yo single barrel bourbon

Posted by docsmooth on 2010/09/05

Spicy and sweet with a car’mel nose,
Across the bar, its strong scent does blow,
I sip as I think,
To what shall I drink?
“To family who follows where I go!”

Laphroig 10

Posted by docsmooth on 2010/06/30

Peat and strength with tastes to enjoy,
The 10 year Laphroig keeps bartends employed,
I take one more sip,
And my hat I will tip,
To distillers of liquid joy.

Bowmore 15

Posted by docsmooth on 2009/08/03

Strong and woody with smoky dryness,
A drink that the gods would surely bless,
The nose, a perfume,
It goes down so smooth:
Like your girl stripping out of her dress.

Written in a “Scottish” bar: Mosaic, in Halifax, Nova Scotia. Not sure how authentic it is.

Glenfiddich 15 Solara Wood Reserve

Posted by docsmooth on 2009/05/18

Smooth as silk with a splash of water
I sip as my wife talks of being a potter,
Its nose is sublime,
Soft as syrah wine,
The effects do make my pulse hotter.

I like Scotch. Scotchy-Scotch-Scotch.

Posted by docsmooth on 2009/03/04

I’m a big fan of single-malt Scotch Whisky.  One of my favorite movie lines is above, and I have been heard quoting it at Scotch tastings.  I may therefore blog about it sometimes.  Currently I have a bottle of Johnny Walker Black at home for mixing and late nights and a bottle of Aberlour 12 as my “good stuff.” When I travel, I have been known to take a small flask, as it saves money, and then I know what I’m getting.

Oddly enough, however, I probably only have a glass of Scotch every 2-3 weeks, unless one of my “Scotch buddies” is in town.  The price is high, and there is such thing as “too much of a good thing” I believe.

Later I’ll explain why, but when I have a new Scotch, I write limericks about it.  They will start to appear here.

Lagavulin 16

Posted by docsmooth on 2008/10/14

Strong, but softer than a good cigar,
A scotch I will drink till close of the bar,
Strong and not sweet,
it’s taste is complete,
Smoothness makes this Scotch go far.
