Michael Reer at the “Whiskey Catholic” recently interviewed me about the Latin Mass, being a Catholic gentlemen, and, of course, my favorite whiskeys.
In a previous post, I compared the Latin Mass to beer: You have to drink it in a few times before you begin to like it, but once you acquire the taste, there’s no going back. Well, in this interview, I had to upgrade the analogy: When it comes to alcohol, scotch whisky is the “extraordinary form.”
Here’s a sample from the interview with the Whiskey Catholic:
Can you share your thoughts on virtuous drinking?
TRM: Virtuous drinking involves male friendship, plain and simple. It’s usually a time for men to remove themselves from the company of women that they love and sit together around a fire pit, in the darkness, or on the back porch. Some of the most meaningful conversations that I have had with my father, my brother, and my friends have been over a Scotch. Real relationships are forged. It’s a beautiful thing.
