the smell of my desperation has become a stench

Auchentoshan Single Malt Scotch Whiskey

Jon’s brother Tom recommended this Scotch to him, and last night we broke it open for the first time to celebrate the end of my manuscript revisions (and to better days ahead in our marriage). This is definitely something you should savor and sip, not the type of drink you want to be slurping out of someone’s belly button, although I could recommend a good tequila for that. Has a bit of a peaty taste to it, but what I was struck by was its very subtle sweetness. Also, I adore the box it comes in, especially the typography, and can see myself being inspired by this in future masthead designs. Cheers!

That’s how this shit works. Now? Well… sit back, buckle up, and enjoy the ride.
