On the subject of single malt, I was introduced to a new (to me) one at Christmas.  I suppose I shouldn’t mention the name, but, as usual the description is interesting.

Of the nose, it says:  “Smells delightfully of fruitcake, banana nut bread and sweet malt in the first aromatic go-rounds; seven minutes of further exposure to the air brings out devilishly toasty/roasted aromas of crispy pork rind, sweet oak, vanilla, red grapes and blackberry jam”.

And the taste?  “Entry is vividly sweet and grainy, yet nimble in its textural weight and acidic agility; gains momentum by mid-palate as the taste profile suddenly bursts with red fruit presence (red currants, mostly) and oaky vanilla.  Finishes clean as a whistle, chewy and concentrated.  Tight, composed, no body fat”.

I guess I’m a philistine, but I couldn’t find the blackberry jam. :)

There should be tar and some seagulls lonely calls in it too.

That the best single malt to me :)
And no hangovers..

Sure :)
Hi yor_on,

I just realized what a difficult task that would be to scan in all those pages. Perhaps I'll do it someday. In the mean time, what I wanted to convey is located here http://plato.stanford.edu/entries/popper/#SciKnoHisPre

Don't get the idea that I understand all that. :D I've just started to read Popper's work. That started a while back when I bought The Logic of Scientific Discovery by Karl Popper. I also have a philosophy of science book that I'm now reading. This stuff is hard reading my friend. :)

Yeah, I've looked at Popper before and he seems like his works demands a quite extensive reading. I remember his thoughts as having a lot to do with QM, but it is some time ago. Thanks for the link :)
