QuoteOriginally posted by: mackbarHow to Drink Scotch WhiskeyI say, shouldn't that be Whisky? I think you are mixing up your Scotch and Irish. No gentleman would ever do that, what?
I learned two things at drama school. First, that I couldn't act; second, that it didn't matter.

I was about to reply the same. Just bumped into the topic. STOP SAYING WHISKEY WHEN YOU TALK ABOUT SCOTTISH WHISKY.Btw, I have some confused reactions from some of my friends about a bottle I have (which I do like): Loch Dhu. Anyone? + This is definitely the greatest movie (with Noblesse oblige of course) of the Ealing Studios period.
