Three Dusty Scotch Blends

Thanks to scotchguy_TO  and dramfine  for these samples. Those closest to me will tell you I’m constantly annoyed by nostalgia. Viewing the past with rose coloured glasses has hurt countless generations. It leads people to love the past without noting the injustices done and the inequalities there.

I probably should have, since I’m in Marketing and it would make me feel cool before breaking down in tears at what really happens in my life. Just kidding: I cry anyways. However I didn’t watch it. Why? Because he drank Canadian […]
