Scotch Club? Scotch Club! What goes with Scotch?

My office has a Scotch Club, where a group of people have monthly Scotch tastings. High-end single malts. These people are serious tasters. Tomorrow is my first meeting. I wanna bring a snack that I can buy at any well-appointed supermarket and don't have to cook or do much preparing. Besides cigars, fireplaces and Nick Offerman, what goes with Scotch?

Best pro-tips for managing a five day drink-a-thon

I'm home for the holidays and seeing many friends after years apart. I have five days, each consisting of brunch, lunch and dinner with others, and am looking forward to unimaginable quantities of free alcohol. I am a seasoned (pickled?) drinker that does not normally get hangovers but never have I been on such a social whirlwind with so many opportunities to celebrate. Does anyone have advice for overcoming the potential weaknesses of the flesh to rise to this challenge? Or, how to pace myself when offered so much free deliciousness? Details below [more inside]

Making the most out of WhiskeyFest

Hey! After years of amateur scotch/bourbon/rye drinking, I decided to take the plunge and bought a ticket to this year's WhiskeyFest. The challenge - there are over 400 bottles to sample (I know, poor me). But with a limited amount of time (and sobriety), what should I make a bee-line for? [more inside]

I need to buy my brother a very good bottle of scotch. The last very good bottle of scotch I bought him was Highland Park 12 year. He liked that. But he has done me a series of nice, nice favors for which I would like to top said Highland Park. He also likes Laphroaig. Really, he just likes scotch and whiskey. Suggestions, please, $200 and under.

"I'll Take Some Tennesee, Please."

Why is Scotch whisky called that, instead of "Scottish whisky"? And how did Scotch, which is (or should be) used as a versatile adjective, become short for the whisky itself? I'd think that'd be similar to calling Tennessee whiskey simply "Tennessee." Just curious. Thanks in advance.

What foods to pair with whiskey?

I'm having a whiskey party tonight. There will be a mix of scotches, bourbons, and other whiskeys, single-malt and blended. It will not be a dinner party but I'd like to provide some hors d'oeuvres and possibly desserts. I've heard sushi is good with whiskey so I thought lox might work, and this Honey and Whiskey ice cream looks good, but does anyone have any other ideas?

What's a great scotch for father's day?

My dad drinks scotch and I've gotten him some single malt ones, which I prefer, and he didn't like them too much. I am looking to get him a great high-end scotch. He likes johnny walkers so I've gotten him a bottle of Johnny Walker Blue once and he liked that a lot. So I am hoping to get him something else that's similarly high quality. I am hoping to spend perhaps $75-$500 or so. Don't know much about scotch, esp. blended, so your suggestions would be appreciated.

Scotch: It's coming up on my beloved stepfather's 50th birthday, and he's recently developed an interest in Scotch. I'd like to get him a bottle of something good that he might not pick up himself. We sat at a bar over the holidays and I quizzed him on the bottles on display and would estimate he's tried most of the commonly found brands (or at least most of the ones I've heard of). I'd like to spend in the neighborhood of $50, but could be talked into being slightly more extravagant if it seemed really worth it. Any recommendations?
