Those who know me well enough know of my affinity for Scotch. And I'm not talking about Dewar's or Johnnie Walker either.
Sunday, The Art of Manliness posted a pretty good guide on this worthy subject. I especially liked the referenced quote below.
“The proper drinking of Scotch whisky is more than indulgence: it is a toast to civilization, a tribute to the continuity of culture, a manifesto of man’s determination to use the resources of nature to refresh mind and body and enjoy to the full the senses with which he has been endowed.” - David Daiches
