A scotch drinker reconsiders
By Tom Smith

I prefer scotch to all other distilled spirits. I have always disliked bourbon, but now I am wondering if perhaps I have tried the wrong stuff. This Christmas, I tried of little of this stuff. It was pretty darn good, smooth, a little sweet, none of the heavy, headachy taste I associate with relatively cheap bourbon. It's 100 proof, so it packs a whallop, but it tastes good enough to drink straight. Please kill brain cells responsibly.
