When Julia Child was asked what her favorite wine was, she purportedly responded “Gin”. I can identify – although not particularly with gin. I am not a big wine fan but I do like a good scotch. My all-time favorite (this girl has expensive tastes) is LaGavulin, a single malt scotch whiskey produced in the town of…you guessed it…LaGavulin on the island of Islay. It has a strong smoky flavor and is not to everyone’s taste but we’re hooked.
