“Speyside is heaven on earth”

So quoth a “spirit sommelier” in an article in today’s NY Times. They tasted 12-year-old single malts, and list favorites. I remain an ignoramus, so my favorites remain the first three drams I was handed at Sourlies and Kinbreak: Glen Morangie (thanks, Kev!), Highland Park (cheers, David!), and The Macallan (health, Jules!).

(If you take a look, you’ll see an apology from the author for spelling “whisky” as “whiskey.” Times copy editors have long driven me insane. The point should be to be accurate, but they never miss their chance to be merely “correct” by asserting the primacy of the style book.)
