Comments on: Glen Grant Scotch and my Scottish Dad Steamy Kitchen Food Blog: fast recipes, simple recipes, with fresh ingredients to create delicious meals. Wed, 22 Jul 2015 18:52:26 +0000 hourly 1 By: Gerald Fri, 28 Dec 2012 02:33:04 +0000 Hi, Scott,
It is through Googling a special collection of Glen Grant that I chanced upon your beautiful posting about GG amidst recollections of your father. I’m sorry for your loss and I really admire you having such a father to share so much with you, including his special love for GG.
Being someone who can’t be more distant in root from Scotland but nevertheless a staunch fan of GG, I have to admit there isn’t a great collection of this SM here in Toronto, Canada. However, I managed to bring a couple back every time I travel abroad – June in Rome and October in Hong Kong, and am looking forward to some from online suppliers.
Your description of what you dad said about GG is classic and quintessential, better than I can ever put into words – the lingering and mystic flavor of Glen Grant.

Thank you for sharing this wonderful memory of your father with us. I am so sorry for the grief and loss you are experiencing. Thankfully as humans, we have the ability to remember and keep our loved ones with us that way. I’m sure each time you enjoy a scotch, you will think of your father and raise a toast to him.
May your warm memories of this wonderful man sustain you.

By: Jen da purse Ho Sat, 02 Jun 2012 09:14:38 +0000 Sorry about the loss of your father.

This post was so touching and informative at the same time. :)
my bf is a scotch lover. I’ll have to show this to him and ask him his thoughts and feelings about it. :)

big hugs.

Here’s a little bit of a song from Brian McNeill about his uncle:

For he’s the best o’ the barley, cream o’ the crop
Easy on the water and I’ll tell you when to stop
Would you please charge your glasses with the real pure drop
And drink tae the best o’ the barley…

That was very touching story. I know it’s a bit neurotic, but as a born and raised NoDaker, I must correct you. It’s Bismarck with a C.

Enjoy your Scotch,

By: Kim in MD Tue, 29 May 2012 13:05:37 +0000 Wow…your post brought tears to my eyes. I agree that you should move that bottle of Glen Grant to your collectors cabinet. I am so sorry for your loss, Scott.

On a lighter note- I agree with Jaden about whiskey in general- yuck! I cook with it, but I can’t drink it!

By: Chris Mon, 28 May 2012 18:14:00 +0000 A very poignant tribute. I know he must have been as proud of you as you are of him.

Glen Grant just became invaluable.
