How Scotch Is Made

I've never been a big fan of the stuff--even of single malt.  I'm a craft beer guy.  Here's a clip from the delightful 1955 film Mr. Roberts in which Henry Fonda, Jack Lemmon, and William Powell discuss the taste of scotch and how one might make their own--under wartime conditions, of course.

As an occasional Scotch drinker, I have some doubts about their recipe. But don't let me stop you from experimenting.

Haha, I still remember the scene from _The_Great_Escape_ where they choke down some vodka they just distilled from potatoes, and hoarse: "Smooth!"

If you're a craft beer guy, next time you're in San Diego you should make sure to visit the new North Park brewery and tasting room for Hess Brewing (or at least the more northerly original tasting room in Miramar). Mike Hess is a member of New Life PCA, La Mesa, and has been a consistent supporter of <a href="">Hoagies & Stogies</a>.

Yea, verily. Craft beer if one of my favorite beverages. It makes trips up to Oregon all that more enjoyable.

I'm afraid I also enjoy cognac (maybe there is Huguenot blood in me after all). I don't know where my taste for rum comes from, though.

Mr. Roberts was a great flick!
