    You did the right thing, stepdad. Good for you. Who knows, you might develop a taste for peaty malts.
    I changed my signature. The old one was too ridiculous.

    Frank: You're welcome anytime. Just give me a little notice ...

    I truly love Macallan 12. It has one of the highest, if not the highest, quality/price ratios of any whisky I have tried. After paying for and tasting some malts, it's hard to believe Macallan can make a scotch that good for that price.

    I would be more that glad to give the wee lass a big hug John. She should be home directly too.

    I understand about the God willing thing - I just turned 62!

    Cheers!

    Spent most of last week in Nashville, Tennessee, also known as Whiskeyville, USA. Didn't do quite as much tasting as I coulda/shoulda/woulda, but did make some locally produced "discoveries" that impressed me enough that I may very well circle back to them in the near future:

    1) Pritchards Single Malt--unpeated, pot-stilled, with a mostly barley mash bill. Not an exceptional amount of depth or complexity (although I admittedly watered it too much) but pleasingly light, smooth and fruity--like a Lowland Malt but not as grassy--and slightly more interesting than:

    2) Pritchards Double Barrell, which has plenty of body and character but is in my opinion a wee bit too young and hot as yet to display its full potential (a common problem with small batch/hand-crafted American whiskies in general that is happily less tolerated by Scottish distillers--we've got the barrels, they've got the patience).

    I sampled both of these at Whiskey Kitchen, which I strongly recommend (despite being noisy and crowded) for both the whiskey AND food menus.

    3) Corsair Triple Smoke--all malted barley, fired by cherry wood, beech wood and peat. Had a double shot of it, at lunch while awaiting my meatloaf sandwich, at the Country Music Hall Of Fame And Museum and listening to a version of Glen Campbell's "Rhinestone Cowboy" that I'd never heard before, which of course made the whole experience even better. Not quite as "deeply complex" --on my palate anyway--as its makers proclaim but definitely an intriguing, full-bodied and well-crafted American Whiskey/Single Malt Scotch "hybrid" attempt, perhaps sufficiently so to merit purchase of an actual bottle, if I can find it.

    Very happy in general to see a notable presence of barley amid the corn and the rye.

    Also saw not one, but two gents wearing kilts while I was there, which of course made me sorely regret that I didn't pack/wear one of mine, which I usually do when travelling. Someday I'll learn my lesson.....

    You mention the quintessential conundrum - "if I can find it". Do you know if Pritchards and Corsair export their product beyond the borders of Tennessee? I haven't seen them, ... but then again, I haven't looked for them. I'll keep my eyes open, when I'm in Santa Fe and Albuquerque. But, I'm not hopeful.

    According to their web pages Corsair is unavailable in New Mexico and Pritchards doesn't list their distributors and shows nothing on their "Where to Buy" page. Oh my!, the trials and tribulations of the whisky tippler.
    I changed my signature. The old one was too ridiculous.
