I am a Scotch drinker, actually I am Scotch. Grant is a Scottish name with a coat of arms and a motto, “stand fast”.
I have tried a variety of Scotchs from Bowmore to Macallan and a lot in between. There is even a Glen Grant that is pretty good. But I have to say I have found nothing better than Glenlivet 18 Years Old —. For smoothness, taste, and all around quality this one can not be beat.
If you haven’t tried it, do. One caution, most bars do not carry the 18 year old, they have the 12 but it doesn’t compare.
Th’day is th’ foremaist day o’ th’ rest o` yer lee.
I found your site via the list of Indie Book Reviewers. Although I don’t think my novel In Your Sights is a good fit with your preferred reading, I was intrigued by the tab labelled “Scotch.” I’ve visited a LOT of book review sites, and never seen that! 🙂 I’m a Laphroaig girl myself.
downloaded your book, hope to have a review by 1/16. So you like a little peat in your Scotch!
Thank you Don! That was kind of you. I hope you enjoy it.
Indeed, I do like a little peat in my single malt. 😉 In fact, in my first novel Ship to Shore (a romance), I gave my fondness for Laphroaig to my heroine.
Hahaha, I LOVE the Scotch tag! I love being surprised by something different. I have a beautiful still in my man cave and I make a very drinkable drop. It’s hard to keep it for 18 years but I’m trying. Managed to keep a few bottles in the back of the cellar over 4 years old now!
Robin A. Smith- I too love scotch. One of my good friends makes regular trips to Scotland and brings home locally made scotch not available for export. A treat! Heavy on the peat. I’m writing another book- a real endeavor, about my Grandmother, “Gwen”. She was a Scarborough and my Mom researched her heritage back to the 1600’s. Hoping to spend a few weeks in Scotland with my wife researching.
