They sure would be pretty neat as drink coasters.

I never understood Scotch. Not much of a booze-hound to begin with, but a good bourbon, a little vodka, some nice gin - those are things I can appreciate. Scotch tastes, and from all I understand is supposed to taste, and is prized specifically for tasting, like smoke. Maybe my revulsion is due to repeated childhood sufferings from swigging on half-full cans of Coke that my father left around the house after having used them as impromptu ash trays for dousing his Chesterfield King butts.

The scotch does makie pretty pictures once it's dead, though.

Ahh, the mysteries of the universe in a glass of Glenfiddich. I no longer drink, and don't miss it, except for once in a great while when I remember the pleasure of a good scotch.
