Smokey?

Postby Iain » Mon Aug 04, 2003 8:07 am

This from the newspaper The Daily Record:

GASPING FOR A WHISKY Aug 4 2003

SCOTCH cocktails are helping US smokers cope with a ban on public puffing.

The Trump World Towers bar in New York has developed drinks which mimic leading cigarette brands - including the Smokeless Manhattan - made of Laphroaig whisky, port and orange bitters - which, it's claimed, tastes like Marlboro Reds.

The idea follows the success in Florida of the tobacco-spiked Martini drink Nicotini, which offers a rush of nicotine.

How about a Laphroaig-flavoured cigarette for recovering alcoholics? Image

You might want to patent that idea. You could be on to something......

That's not so crazy. After enjoying an Ardbeg TEN you would swear I'd been in a smoky bar even though there aren't many around here now (not allowed to smoke in bars there). A smoky islay can be cloying!

Well all I can say: the red, white and blue has done it again. It looks like an American dream. What's next?
