Aberfeldy Highland Single Malt. Starts off nutty, finishes slightly sweet. Very smooth, zero burn.

It's a bit embarrassing, but there were about 300 bottles of Trinidad TDL shipped to Sweden, and I, almost completely by myself, has consumed 2% of the entire Swedish stock of it 🤣

Now, I'm on the way to 0.2333% of the Swedish stock 😅

Civilization, in fact, grows more and more maudlin and hysterical; especially under democracy it tends to degenerate into a mere combat of crazes; the whole aim of practical politics is to keep the populace alarmed (and hence clamorous to be led to safety) by menacing it with an endless series of hobgoblins, most of them imaginary. - H.L.

@Keyrock - I like your hat. The pumpkin could use a face, tho.  🎃

It is a waste of a good pumpkin

I thought carving pumpkins were rubbish to eat anyway? We don't get red pumpkin for sale here, it's all Crowns/ Butternut/ Buttercup which aren't the right shape for carving anyway.

I thought for a moment I actually had that Scotch on the shelf but it's Aberlour, not Aberfeldy. Same bottle style though.

Can't say I've had Aberlour. How is it?

Don't know how they compare to any others but plenty of mom's I knew growing up would use the common US ones for stuff. Pies mostly, soup sometimes.  My mother liked to dry out the seeds in the oven for eating.

Never had one myself but based on the squirrels consuming the ones people leave out like idiots, I assume they can't be all that bad to eat. But edible is edible.

For years the only non miniature red pumpkins available here that were (occasionally) sold came with the disclaimer that you should feed them to livestock when finished with them, which was not encouraging. I kind of presumed things were different in the US since everywhere seemed to have pumpkin pie for sale as a dessert when I was last there- I'm not sure I've ever seen it offered here.

Since I've been prompted I checked my seed catalogues and we do now have a good tasting carving pumpkin available (variety name "Jack o' Lantern", appropriately enough; though the seed supplier is pretty niche and it isn't available retail) but it's a bit late to try planting any now plus I don't have the space. Something to try for next year though.
