    How to ruin great whiskey

    Someone is using one of the rarest Scotch's in the world to flavor hagis. Thank goodness I've never heard of anyone trying to do this with great bourbon.

    I thought the Scots were supposed to be thrifty!

    Idiot! Give me that bottle, you fool!

    The upside is that proceeds go to tsunami relief.

    Wow. Somehow, they've managed to combine almost everything I can't quite stomach (no pun intended) into a single dish. That's somewhat impressive.

    I feel like we're left out. Maybe we can soak some vienna sausages in Old Crow to benefit the tsunami relief efforts. Everyone who doesn't donate at least five bucks has to eat one.

    Preciely so. The Scots ARE thrifty. This is happening in London, though.

    And though rare, nobody is claiming this 50 year old Balvenie tastes like much more than a geriatric oak tree. Those who have tasted it haven't raved about it's complexity.

    Good call! Our sometime nemisis Jim Murray gives it a nondescript 87: "Coffee and biscuits...a noble dram battered by oak."

    Probably all a 50YO whisky is good for.

    Re: How to ruin great whiskey

    It's funny but I have known a number of Englishmen in my day and while all enjoyed beer or wine, and in some cases gin, rarely if ever did one state he liked whisky. When I would ask about that they would make jokes about how it is drink for Scots. I know oceans of whisky are sold in English pubs and off-licences so someone is buying it in Albion, maybe they are, mostly, emigres from Ireland and Scotland.
