Auchentoshan Single Malt
Auchentoshan Classic- So my friend Charlie has this tradition whilst fly fishing….when you land a trout, you take a celebratory drink from the always present silver flask. Our subject scotch might just be the perfect streamside companion. Now Charlie favors Canadian whisky, clearly a character flaw, but right-minded folks would do well to consider this alternative. It’s lightly peated and malty with a distinctive oilyness ….which is a great combination. It’s an 80 proof bottle which should keep you from taking an unexpected downstream excursion. As a possible side benefit on a day when they are not biting…at least you are self contained. Scottishly inexpensive , but still the real (reel…) deal, I rate this one a 7, oh, and always catch and release.
Sounds good enough for me to take up fly fishing!

I can’t for the life of me understand why something that tastes like oily peat is desirable. However, it’s probably good there are you and your brethren, list wise the demand, and therefore the cost of good whiskey goes up.

Peaty smokey scotch is among the best tasting things ever made…..
