'Twas The Night Before Scotchmas: A Holiday Guide To Giftable Single Malts

The Glenrothes

'Twas the night before Scotchmas and all through the house
Not a bottle was open -- not even the Famous Grouse.
I wished I was nestled all snug in my bed
While visions of single malts danced through my head
But instead I was on line at the liquor emporium
Gazing at single malts, dreaming of pouring 'em.
"So many to look at, so many to try!
How on earth will I know just which ones to buy
For dear Uncle Herman and sweet cousin Mike
and my slave-driver boss whom I rather dislike?"
It was then that it hit me -- I'd found my true calling!
"I'll write up a guide for gift buyers who are stalling!
Some last-minute words on some giftable whiskies;
The men will admire me! The women will kiss me!
But much more important, a service I'll render
So let's get right to it -- this poem's at an ender."
