The Latest from the Drunken Duck
is the current status of my whisky assortment. I haven't posted much lately and this is my second try today as the blog site is acting up. So this will be short. I just got Hankey Bannister, Glen Ness, McClelland (Highland version) and Glen Kirk 8 a couple of days ago. I also restocked the Edradour and the "Brookladdie" Rocks. Both were excellent and I received them as an early Christmas present. I have been enjoying a dram just before dark out on the deck and now have found my old straight grained pipe and bought some Hobbit Weed from a supplier out in Colorado. It is a decent pipe tobacco and I also got some single malt pipe tobacco which I hope to try tonight. I enjoyed the Hankey Bannister last evening and it was very nice. I am on a quest right now to find really good scotch that doesn't cost that much. The McClelland -Highland tastes as good to me as many a 70-80 $ a bottle scotches and the Hankey Bannister (under 20$) is as good as many higher priced blends I have tried. So the moral is that the price really doesn't matter as long as you enjoy the taste of the product. Happy Holidays to all.
