The previous Speaking Scotch with Brian Cox post gave some browsers the chokes because all of the videos were embedded. The videos are incredibly short (avg. 5 seconds or so), but it was still an issue.
Ever wonder how to order a Bunnahabhain or a Bruichladdich without sounding like daft arse? Do you have any feckin idea how to say An Cnoc or Caol Ila?
I have a bottle of fireball that was given to me. I do not like this straight.
Among connoisseurs, scotch whisky is heralded as a complex delicacy. Listen in on a tasting: You'll swear they're describing an entire dinner entree, not a sip of booze. But scotch distillers need only three ingredients—and a barrel-full of technique—to make that magical elixir, as I learned while touring the…
Vampires and zombies, ruined castles and gloomy dungeons: the scary tropes of Gothic horror, which first terrorized the world 250 years ago with the publication of Horace Walpole's Castle of Otranto, still colonize our imaginations today.

Welcome to Friday Happy Hour! The time and place to chat, drink, and recharge after a long week.
Tokyo Tea's and Dragontail's are amazing and the things that can instantly get me buzzed without too much problems.
