The variety and age, like any liquor is everything. Glenfiddich
Ya, Chivas is the "Old Milwaukee" of Scotch.
While I do enjoy it slowly with alot of ice straight, (not conventional), a generous jigger of it in coffee with half&half and honey does it best for me. It'* like calming mothers milk.
Not that I've ever seen or heard of. Our lakes around here are are small 10-20 acres. The only thing I didn't catch the week that we have was Pike, rock bass, or Bullheads. Unless you want to count mud puppies.
We are headed out to do a little ice fishin thursday morning . My hand auger is named Jiffy .Those mud puppys are great bait for the large lake trout . Looks like all the perch have their eyes still .lol
