Skeptical Investigation

Scotch in a Can

D8d4fda45abcee95bca7c7c687363371We’re lovers. You know that. But every now and again, something comes across our desks that just seems... suspicious. Because of the tremendous material upside to all our lives if these claims pan out, we at times put ourselves in harm’s way to investigate. Albeit skeptically.

We call it: Skeptical Investigation. (Copyright pending.)

THE CLAIM
That Scottish Spirits has done the impossible: put scotch in a can. They don’t claim to have put good scotch in a can, but we figured we’d investigate that, too.

THE INVESTIGATION
The stuff’s not legally available for human consumption yet, but we obtained a test sample through a privately funded research grant.

Our intrepid team then put on their lab coats (silk robes), retired to the lab (a library with leather-bound books) and prepared the beakers (snifters). Then, they cracked open a can, unleashing a savage mist from the mouth. After taking a whiff of the aroma (top notes of Pennzoil), our researchers poured the elixir into the beakers/snifters and bravely downed a few fingers...

THE VERDICT
Well, it’s better than wine from a box. But it’s not as good as scotch from a bottle. Use only in emergencies.
