Angry **** Scotch!

Fuck Scotch! Fuck all the bars and pubs that think it's hip and trendy to have a huge selection of single malts, but only offer bottom-shelf Bacardi or Cpt. Morgan. Fuck the insidious idea that the only drink worth sipping and commenting on is fucking Scotch. Fuck it. Fuck the idea that thinking outside this Scotch prison only means adding some aged Bourbon on the shelf. Fuck it.

Pour me some rum, some of the good stuff please!

So tell us how you really feel

But seriously, bars stock what sells. If this is a bar that you tend to patronize more than once in a very blue moon, try talking to the bartender or manager nicely, and suggest a couple of rums for them to add. I have tried this on several occasions, and every one has been very willing to add something on the order of Appleton Reserve or Mt. Gay Extra Old.

As a rum lover I'm ashamed to admit it but I can no longer say f*** scotch. I took a job interview and lunch few weeks back and it was a two manager vote. I didn't get the job but the manager who asked me to interview gave me a consolation parting gift when we returned from lunch...a double of macallan 30yr and it was beyond words amazing,

Given I drove down in morning rush hour to Washington for 3hrs I I gladly took and enjoyed every sip with him

If only all unsuccessful intervirws could end that well

I drink a lot more rum than scotch, but to swear off any spirit, with the exception of flavored vodka, is a bit short-sighted. On the other hand, if everyone who presently spends their money on scotch switched to rum, none of us would be able to afford rum. Like it or not, the laws of supply and demand apply to spirits.

Just as there are good and not so good rums, there are also good and not so good scotches.
