David sent photos of the new pipe he has made for me and I'm pretty sure I'm going to love it. I asked him to take a Pipe Dan shape and make his version. I think he did a great super cool job. I can wait to get it. -T
Until The Chicago Pipe Show! This event is always a highlight in my year. So many friends I only see once a year not to mention all the pipes! Mark and I will be there with bells on or at least beards. Hope to see you. -T
St Paddy's Day seems like an appropriate time to talk about whiskey so I'll have at it.
I recently watched a British tv series about a cop in Scotland- Rebus. In one scene Rebus is in a bar ( a familiar place for him ) and someone offers him a single malt. He declines saying something to the effect " only Americans and fools drink single malt. I drink blended whiskey." Well this got me thinking. I am an American and probably a fool too and I've been drinking only single malt for some years, but maybe I should try some blended whiskeys again. I did a brief search on the internet and saw someone's top 10 list and headed to the local liquor store. I bought 3 to try. I still prefer single malt. No matter which single malt you try, it has a character of it's own. The blended whiskeys were all fine but they lack any depth. They were just bland. But what can I say- I'm an American fool. -T
