Need honest opinions on Single Malt Scotches under $100 (Preferably from Scottish folks) Answered
If you recall the dialog from the movie, "My cousin Vinnie," the guy says, "No self respecting southern would eat ready made grits." There is something to be said about his statement. It is emphatic and pretty much gives away the sentiment from a southern (USA) point of view.
