|Now we Texans
do a lot of things and do most of them quite well,
BUT even Texans cant
make Scotch whisky
as much as we would like to. The SCOTCH
auto license plate is a custom plate that the Scotch
Doc has the legal right to use at an extra
charge of $40.00 a year. It does look kinda cute
with the red TEXAS
centered above the blue SCOTCH,
huh? I must also admit that, as appropriate as it may
be, I had nothing to do with the SCOTCH
lettering being larger than the TEXAS
lettering. Some things just seem to happen appropriately
on their own, occasionally.
And now, I want to dispel a rumor that my protaganists
issue, from time-to-time. I
DO NOT MAKE MOONSHINE WHISKEY and I certainly do
not attempt to make a Texas Scotch
Whisky! It is true that I own, perhaps, one
of the largest collection of genuine Moonshine Whiskey
Stills anywhere. At last count, there were twenty-seven
such antiquities that ranged from one gallon to fifty
gallons in size - and all of them are different. If you
read the "Scotch Doc in Retrospect" copy you
know that I probably know a wee bit about that gosh-awful
stuff but some of the rumors that have floated around
just ain't so. For instance I flat out deny that:
I have NEVER "messed
around" with pouring Liquid Smoke, Olorosa Sherry,
Extract of Fruit Cake, burnt grass ashes, Oak Sap, Bluebonnet
or Yellow Rose of Texas Flower Juice into a batch of "McCoy's
Moonshine" in an attempt to reproduce The Macallan
or an Islay Single Malt Scotch.
Hell, it just didn't work out - and that's a fact. Now
I once had a couple of uncles and a cousin who would
have tried it if they thought it would have worked. But
they are no longer with me in this world below. (I sure
hope them' angels are 'a-sharin' their "angel's share"
with them' boys). Slainte, yall.

P. S. I will photograph my collection of Moonshine
Stills and have them on this website in the next few weeks.
