scotch and cigars

I love both.

My daddy had three girls and no boys. The result was three daughters who love baseball, fishing, scotch, and cigars.

But here’s the thing -- I’m a scotch snob, and my favorite bottle has forever prejudiced me against anything but something of the same caliber, or better.

I can sip a glass, on the rocks, of Aberlour A’bunadh (Scotland: Speyside) for an evening, and be about as happy as is humanly possible. Aberlour a'bunadh is a natural single cask strength malt whisky. Taken directly from specially selected sherry casks, it’s bottled simply without the use of modern filtering methods or the addition of water.

The palate, for me, is vanilla, apple, sherry, smoke, caramel and butter … and the butter lingers. It’s glorious.

It’s pricey (about $70), but I’ve informed Ty that for the rest of our lives, our home must never be without at least one bottle of Aberlour A’bunadh.

Even if you’re not a scotch lover, this smooth bottle of heaven will leave a future guest singing your praises (and owing you big-time for the party of the senses).

Buy it. Seriously. Buy it.
