Bonus July One-liners: Whisky.

This summer, we went to Denmark for a week. On the way home, I bought two bottles of whisky, a Johnnie Walker Gold Label Reserve and a 16 year old Balvenie triple cask. With my purchase, I got a small book titled “Book of Whisky” that contained a lot of interesting information about whisky that made me realize I really don’t know squat. In the book, there was also a few whisky quotes, which inspired me to dig up a few from the depths of the internet and add them to the one-liners collection:
