    Houston Makes History

    Get a grip on your geography~~ IOW is NOT in Scotland, rather an island off Southwest England. They don't make "Scotch" on that Island and whatever they might distill could not, by law, to marketed as "Scotch." They might however, in honor of our inept management, brand their whisky as "Dry Hole Biodegraded"

    • I know where IOW is pilgrim - I was there last fall. They make a local blend they call scotch. Maybe they didn't check with you before they started distilling it. It's not very good but the locals love it. It's a dark murky blend simular to an Islay only heavier. There are a least a dozen distillers on IOW and you better get over there and tell them about your law.

      I was about 100 meters from the Sandhills holes wondering how the hell they were going to drag that oilrig up and down the hills and over golf courses and thru narrow paths in the rain and mud. Somehow they did - and discovered they'd be better off drilling for scotch.

      The locals don't like tourists, particularly American. They hate GW and can't imagine how we passed up on Gore. That automatically made me an alien on IOW. Also visited Isle of Mann - a light year ahead of the other UK isles. The city of Douglas is a tourist's treasure.

      We've (wife & I) have toured most of the distilleries in northern Scotland. Orkney is the most remote but in my view is the best Island malt. On the mainland the best of Highland/Speyside malts my favorites are Glen Grant and The Macallan 18yr old. Positively top notch.

    • BioRetroGrade NonMarketable Scotch....Yuk!!!
