Oh the delights of a locally made Macaroni Pie, the healthy option Scottish style and Al Fresco dining too.

a "pipette" is a good way to control how much water you add
We've got as local glass blower here (no relation or connection to me) that makes just the wee chappies you need, even with Scottish themes on the top i.e. whisky stills, or wee Nessie's etc...

Please do, don't worry about the science, it's awesome what a difference it can make, IMHO your missing out if you don't.

No, you go ahead and get one of those and put one of the above pipettes in it, ready for immediate use.

Ooh, I like the one with the still on top.

I suspect a straw would be more practical, though

Definitely! Just a few drops can release a wealth of flavours.

I'm getting thirsty again.

Kerrowdown,Parallax and Savoche, thanks again for the comments since I did want to know if you should add water to Scotch to enhance the flavor and if ice was a no no. I know that a little water in Bourbon does help to bring out the flavor. I will go to my local store in the next few days and begin the tasting with a bottle you have suggested. I also like the fact that Glenfarcias is still owned by a sixth generation family member so I may begin with this one if they have it in the store.

I'd certainly find a good bar and try a dram or two before committing to buying bottles, to find ones you like, as there is just a huge choice out there.

Upmarket hotels often have a decent selection, or good whisky bar if you lucky enough to have one near by.

I'm very lucky to have 3/4 of mile away, the 4 time winner of the Malt Whisky Bar of Scotland Award and at the last count, I believe has some 640 whiskies on offer.

Sitting here just now with a large dram of Laphroaig PX Cask, with a little splash of water from the burn that runs through the property, all is right with my world just now, slåinte.

Combining macaroni & cheese with pie - genius !
Ha Ha Ha, People in the States don't need anymore ideas for macaroni and cheese dishes, especially if they are using the fake stuff in the box. This photo made me: A- Hungry and B- get out my camera and shoot something like the food I am about to eat.

Out of luck! Bars around here are for sports or for 20 somethings to get busy! Most of the stuff they stock is Hawkeye brand, which is ethanol diluted to the right strength and has flavor added to approximate the taste of whatever it's supposed to be! Probably filtered through gym socks too!

Sorry, you made me think of this old ad. I can assure you it's quite good. If you speak a bit of Swedish

Yep, it's all part of the process of making the "fulöl" (foul beer) drinkable. As opposed to the "finöl" (fine beer), of course.

"Oh, you've got finöl?! May I have the dregs?"

You've got me intrigued was is this?
A certain well known maker of boxed macaroni and cheese, had been accused of using Genetically Modified Wheat along with MSG and More food dye than is necessary or really bad ones, here in the the US we either choose or not choose to use product, but then the accusation happened when company started shipping it to the UK and it was relabeled that it is FULL of artificial dyes, gmo's, msg, etc....( whether the GMO part was true or not I don't know) and the label stated as is required for where it was being shipped that "ingredients could adversely affect the activity and attention of children". Of course although we are aware that such artificial ingredients do make kids hyper and behave badly, food companies don't have to label it that way here, we are left ignorant label wise. So we avoid the GMO's, msg's and dyes to the best of our ability and no one I know ever uses that type of boxed macaroni and cheese. It is actually like a joke to say that it is part of your dinner.😊

Thanks for the insight, so the UK has inadvertantly saved heaps of US kids from "could adversely affect the activity and attention of children".

Exactly! And for the adults that dare eat it, they might want to wash it down with some Crown Royal Reserve or maybe Everclear.
