The ALS ice bucket challenge has blown up on social media this summer and every day celebrities and us common folk have been posting thousands of videos taking up the challenge. In a recent entry, Patrick Stewart has set the standard in perhaps the classiest ice bucket challenge to date. Yes there is an ice bucket, yes there is a donation to ALS, but in place of drenching himself with freezing water, Stewart has chosen to salute the cause with a generous pour of Chivas Regal.
An excellent choice for such a cause, Chivas Regal is a blended 12 year old scotch that we can all afford to enjoy. At $25 per fifth, I have found Chivas Regal always fits the bill when I want to sip on a simple smooth scotch. It may not have the peaty complexity of Laphroaig 18, but I can enjoy it considerably more often given its price tag and smooth character. I salute you Patrick Stewart and raise my own glass in support of a worthy cause!
