I'm not going to link to the website from here, because it's definitely NSFW, but this is from the "About Us"

To create the perfect taste we let every single drop of our spirits run over the breasts of a special woman, one whose characteristics we saw reflected in the liquor.
 
This sensuality awakens the true character of our brands and gives them an identity, a soul, a spirit, a G-Spirit.


G-Spirits - available in vodka, rum, whisky, and.....something else that's poured over boobs.  Maybe Tequila?  I don't remember.

How not to manage a brand.  http://nation.time.com/2013/02/12/makers-mark-waters-down-its-whisky-and-anger-rises/

Y'know, I never responded to this but I should have some time ago.  I thought, at the time, I wonder if this isn't a marketing ploy.  Turns out, maybe I was right.  Never did anything to the brand but sure as **** I bought a bottle.  LOL. 

Anyway, sitting around drinking my last can of SurlyFest and also enjoying a lovely glass of Glenfarclas 12 year old and it is spooky smooth.  I swear I could drink this **** for breakfast.  Yum. 

And at the same time as I picked up the Glenfarclas I grabbed me a mini-pack of Glenmorangie.  I thought of you, name, at the time.  So finally there's some Glenmorangie in the house.  It looks something like this:



That said, I've got about 15 bottles of Scotch in the house right now, not including the airplane sized bunch. 

1. Glenfarclas 12 year old
2. Balvenie Caribbean Rum Cask 14 year old (x2)
3. Cardhu 12 y/o
4. Johnnie Walker Black
5. Johnnie Walker Green
6. Macallan 12 y/o
7. Macallan Elegencia 12 y/o
8. Glengoyne 14 y/o
9. Cragganmore 12 y/o
10. Cragganmore Distiller's Edition
11. Glenfiddich Snow Phoenix (x2)
12. Glendronach 15 y/o
13. Caol Ila 12 y/o

And just to show I bear no ill will to the Irish either, I've got a bottle of 16 y/o Old Bushmills.

Esquire had renowned Scottish actor Brian Cox sit down in an effort to educate Americans about the pronunciations of the names of some of the more renowned Scotch whiskeys.  Check it out here.

But how else would you know how to pronounce Bruichladdich or Caol Ila?

Listening to Ralfy's vlogs? 

And I'd suggest there's some discrepancy with the pronunciation of Caol Ila.  Brian Cox says "Cool Isle-a" but every pronunciation I've heard from others is "cool eela".  So I'm not entirely certain Mr. Cox is absolutely correct.  It's #13 on the list I last posted (which I've both added to and subtracted from since that post) so I purposely went looking for the pronunciation.
