We’re still in a bit of recovery from our week of binge drinking but we had to make sure everyone knew July 27th was National Scotch Day. How perfect is it that it lands on a Saturday? So open up the liquor cabinet, or head to the bar and celebrate accordingly. We prefer our scotch neat, but for those that aren’t quite ready for that, Dewar’s recently launched Dewar’s Highlander Honey,  a sweet intro to the world of scotch, which we reviewed.
