The world is facing a Scotch shortage

Well, damnation! A scotch shortage is looming. Some of the brands mentioned in the article are Macallan and my favorite, Highland Park.

So just like when there is an ammo panic, I had to run down to the liquor store yesterday and buy some. The owner told me a price hike is coming with his next order, so I might get another couple of bottles tomorrow.

The world is running low on old single malt Scotch - Mar. 4, 2016

I have two bottles of scotch that I will drink on some special occasion.

Ten years ago I paid $200 for a Port Ellen and $100 for some Rosebank. The Rosebanks is going for over $350, and the Port Ellen could probably sell for around $750 or more. Who knew?

I feel your pain, some of my favorite bourbons are getting hard to find. I haven't been able to find a bottle of Elmer T Lee since 2014.

Beer has been and will be around for thousands of years (according to some.) I'm good.
