    Is the scotch market going to tank?

    https://www.cnn.com/2019/10/05/world...rnd/index.html



    After the Tide pods craze, now we have Scotch pods, or "glassless cocktails" for drinkers who can't be bothered to pour.

    "No ice. No stirrer. No glass. We're redefining how whisky can be enjoyed ... #noglassrequired," The Glenlivet tweeted as part of its "Capsule Collection" roll-out, timed with London's Cocktail Week.

    I see a lotta positives here

    - plane size
    - easier for transport into ball games
    - may lead moraines to eat tide pods
    - something on the internet to talk about that isn't divisive

    All I know for sure is if Scotch prices were to collapse I would buy a lifetime supply of 18 year old Highland Park and a few 25 year old bottles for special occasions.

    I'm ready for a price increase. Didn't Trump just impose a 25% tariff?

    He did. So inconsiderate.

    I'm with liv2ski - I'm all for prices collapsing, it won't diminish my enjoyment in any way.
