I am at a friend's house, and just had a taste of this for the first time in a LOONG damn time
This, I promise you, is some of the finest stuff to come out of Scotland. It's bloody wonderful. As in, until I tasted it tonight, I'd actually forgotten how good it is.
Yes, I HAVE had a bit..
Here's the thing: the friends brought it back from Scotland, where they'd been on a once-in-a-lifetime vacation. Because nobody imports the stuff, for God knows what reason. Here's the bleg:
The importer for Glenfiddich is
William Gran & Sons
US Importer, Glenfiddich Single Malt Scotch Whiskey
200 Park Avenue South, Suite 121i
New York, NY 10003
Write/e-mail/call/beg them to start importing this wonderful stuff. It won't be cheap, but this isn't something you swig; it's something you savor. A bit at a time.
Let me put it this way: think of the finest whiskey you've ever had, with a honey liqueur, the best of both in one dram. Maybe a touch of smoke in there. Oh God, and I've only got a sip left...
Write. Call. E-mail, whatever. If they start importing it, I don't have to consider stealing a bottle.
