    By an odd coincidence, I have come by a hefty brick of Scotch Flake Aromatic. Having ordered a pound of Scotch Flake, I was surprised by the powerful smell of chocolate I found on opening the box. I immediately shot off a panicky email to smokingpipes, getting back the puzzling response that...

    So I am always on the search for great scotch specifically single malt..but as know can get really expensive if you drink it everyday. So I started to do some research and found something I never heard of called Black Bottle, it is a blend of 7 islay single malts. I am not a huge fan of blends...

    Possibly because I've become enured to Lakeland essence, but I could detect none of it Scotch Flake. No soap either. In the bag, it has the standard look of G&H flakes, long and brown. I think I like this one better rubbed out for some reason, but it's good F&Sed too. By that I mean GOOD...

    ...I can't find the words to describe it! I got this as a gift (apparently I have some of the best friends in the world) last Friday. OK, I'll give describing it a shot. You can smell tons of sweet toffee with some spice and just a hint of oak. I sweetness in it's smell is totally...

    Add scotch to the list of tastes I've cultivated (cigars and coffee already made the cut). The story is, I had the strangest urge to buy a bottle of scotch yesterday. I have never in my 25 years bought a bottle of liquor for myself... just never cared for the stuff. Beer was my go-to if I...

    The Glenlivet 15 year old French Oak Reserve I've been drinking scotch for years and had always seen this bottle on the store shelves and had wanted to try it but never did, until now. This stuff just fits my palate and is now my regular "go to" scotch. (My old regular was Macallan 10yo Fine...
