Put me down for the trip. Does Scotch refer to the drink? For me it would be vodka.

I have a few go to's that I enjoy, such as the Balvenie Doublewood 12yr but might go with something a bit different. Something Oregon. A black sheep among the traditional Scotches. Such as:

https://www.caskers.com/mccarthy-s-o...-malt-whiskey/

Made from peat-malted barley imported from Scotland, McCarthy's Oregon Single Malt Whiskey would be called Scotch if Oregon were Scotland. The whiskey, smooth and peaty with a clean finish, was named the "Best Small Batch Whiskey in the World" by the Whisky Bible, and was named one of the ten best American whiskeys by Michael Jackson, author of the Malt Whiskey Companion.

Steve McCarthy, the master distiller at Clear Creek Distillery, purchases the finest malted barley at Port Ellen in Islay, Scotland, and imports it into the United States. Once the malted barley has been imported, it is milled, mashed and fermented into a craft beer by the Widmer Brothers, a Portland-based microbrewery. Then, the craft beer is hauled to McCarthy's craft distillery, where McCarthy distills it in a single pass through his Holstein copper-pot still. As a result of distilling the whiskey in one pass, McCarthy must make large cuts to the heads and tails of the distillate, but is able to preserve more of the flavor and character of the barley during distillation.

While most Scottish distilleries age malt whisky in used bourbon casks, McCarthy ages Oregon Single Malt in used sherry casks, which gives the whiskey a heavier body and more lush notes of apricots, cherries and blackberries. In addition, after its initial maturation in the sherry casks, McCarthy's Oregon Single Malt is double-barreled, or finished, in air-dried Oregon oak casks. This dual maturation process contributes unique tannins to the whiskey's flavor profile, and gives the whiskey hints of cinnamon, honey and oaky spices.

McCarthy's Oregon Single Malt Whiskey is a marriage of Scottish ingredients together with American ingenuity. Pick up a bottle today!

Add me per IM. I imagine I can find a bottle or two of Scotch or a rye whiskey laying around here somewhere. I am also stopping by this place in a couple weeks. May bring a surprise from there.
