A is for Assfordable (Scoresby) -- 188 lbs (-41) [27X]



Scoresby tastes like ass, but not in a bad way. It has a slight chemical tincture, similar to Hamilton's Lowlands Regional Malt and Cutty Sark, that stands out even to a crude palate like mine, and that is at first offensive but can grow on you. It is priced at the bottom, not near the bottom, next to Lauders. Scoresby is supposedly the best-selling scotch on the US west coast, and one of these days I'll spring for the market data to confirm. It is certainly popular enough to have garnered several web reviews, my favorite being a deep and humorous post by top-shelf whisky-lovin' pastor Reverend Christopher I. Thoma. Rev Thoma says that Scoresby is good because it is a scotch, but bad relative to other scotches. Then he goes on to compare it to paint and pee. Amen to that.
