Welcome back, everybody! We have a new program for you today.
Fantasy Highland will join two of my passions, football and whisky, into what is, hopefully, a palatable listening experience.
Each episode, I, and hopefully a guest, will talk about a new whisky or two and get into some football and or fantasy football. If the timing is right, hopefully you can enjoy a dram with us while you listen.
Today’s guest is the venerable Scott Fish. Scott is my favorite commissioner. I’ve played in more than a few of his leagues and there is nobody I trust more to dispense league lading wisdom. Seriously, if you run a league, you just have to follow Scott.
In addition to being a great, and I mean great commish, Scott’s a dynasty maven who can really run a team. I’ll be picking his brains some on this year’s rookie class.
Scott runs the coolest league in all of fantasy football: The Scott Fish Bowl. We’ll talk a bit about hat as well. It’s only fitting as it brings people together much the way a fine dram can. This year’s theme is toys, which is also fitting if you are familiar with how Scott uses his various leagues to raise money for Toys 4 Tots each year.
Lastly, the whisky. Scott turned me onto one of his favorite drams: Balvenie Caribbean Cask 14. It took me a while to finally take the plunge. Me, being the value-hunter than fantasy has conditioned me to be, kept buying the Balvenie 12-year old Doublewood. It was on sale! It’s a very nice bottle in its own right, but the Caribbean Cask is something special, as Scott and I will get into.
