For Christmas a couple of years ago, I asked for a bottle of Drambuie. There were several reasons for this request, the four most pertinent being: 1) I like whiskey; 2) I like honey; 3) Drambuie is basically just whiskey and honey; 4) I couldn’t afford to buy a bottle myself.
After opening my Christmas present and pouring myself a celebratory libation, I discovered several things about Drambuie, the most pertinent being: 1) It tastes the way Old Spice smells.
Saddened and dismayed, I found recipes for drinks including Drambuie, hoping the Old Spice flavor could be drowned out if you add enough other liquors.
But after two years of misery, last night, my bottle of Drambuie was low enough that I realized I could finally finish it off.
… Anyway, now I feel just terrible.
