Strengthening Constitutional Self-Government

No Left Turns

On the lighter side

A friend sent me a link to this story about an online whiskey tasting on Slate. While the whiskey tasting has come and gone, this description of the fine scotch Laphroaig is worth sharing:

And yet [Talisker is] almost mild compared to a Laphroaig, from the Scottish island of Islay. The nose of Laphroaig has smoke and seaweed and something overpoweringly medicinal, like hospital bandages. It smells like someone being treated for burns beside a smoldering building. Next to a bog. Across from an open-air fish market. It smells like ... heaven.

I do not have any Laphroaig along for this journey, but I did bring some cask strength Glenmorangie. Cheers.
