Has he has any Islay on stream? I only really remember Speysides like Dalwhinnie and Macallan.He seems to favor Islay Scotch whiskies, but it's not like he's drinking cheap blended swill. I think he'd do well to extend his collection to include some straight rye whiskies, but those are probably even harder to come by in his neck of the woods.
You can get rye in MN. It's not some backwater, and he's not that far from a metropolitan area with millions of people. There's even good local rye.
