A Dram of History
Combining his interest in history, his extensive
knowledge of Scotch Single Malt Whisky, (the "original"
whisky), The Scotch Doc provides this "special version"
of "Scotch Single Malt Whisky: The Taste, History and Mystique,"
to a limited number of clients. About eight different Scotch
single malts, representing all of the official Scotland geographic
whisky producing regions, will be tasted. The highlight will
be when the fully-kilted "Scotch Doc" gingerly retrieves
one of the delicate whiskey decanters, containing a worthy Scotch
single malt, from the approximately 250 year-old Revolutionary
Officers Liquor Cabinet and pours (very carefully, mind
you) each participant a dram from one of the approximately 250
year-old whiskey decanters. Click to
