Ahhhh, yes, I saw that article as well. I also prefer the peaty Islay scotches, particularly Ardbeg. But I also like Macallan quite a bit. It's a very solid down-the-middle scotch that does everything well and won't alienate anybody.

This month, Scottish distillery the Glenlivet unveiled a series of “glassless cocktails” consisting of liquor and some other stuff in a “seaweed-extract casing.”

So if you don't like the taste of scotch, you can still hang with the big boys?

first off, you just know kids will be sticking those up their butts.

second:

i don't think this gets you around testing the scotch (if used as expected, i.e. orally).  the idea is that you don't need a glass: pop a pod in your mouth, case dissolves, and you have a mouthful of liquor/cocktail/etc.   

if you're surrounded by Big Boys drinking scotch, i somehow don't see a brightly colored booze-pill being you ticket to acceptance...
