Mother in Law visiting. Enablers happiness w/mil = MIL x Scotch(CostxTaste/Snootiness) +Quantityx(ice-food) + square root of the phase of the moon.
Last year we had great success with The Balvenie Doublewood, a very nice 12 year old scotch. If I could do math I would tell you the result for that for the above equation. However, since I can’t (I used to be able to, but now that I drink, no chance).
This year, for her visit, we have decided to throw caution to the winds and eschew the success of the Balvinie. Instead, we have tried a new Scotch (new to us) hoping for even more success. We have for her visit, the 14 year old Oban. According to this website it goes well with a lovely chicken satay. However, since MIL is a vegetarian, we must rely on a lovely beet bisque to pep her up.
Anyhoo, I will post a review/results of the Oban when jollying up mothers-in-law as soon as she leaves. Thankfully, she does not read this blog.
