Booze Alert: Daneson’s Single Malt Nº16 Toothpicks

Daneson’s Single Malt Nº16 Toothpicks
We like to drink Scotch. A lot. Especially after a hard week at work. We like it neat. We like it on the rocks. Sometimes, we like it with a splash of soda. It depends on our mood. So when we discovered Daneson’s Single Malt Nº16 toothpicks, you have no idea how incredibly excited we got.

The folks at Daneson use the best Scotch — we’re talking stuff that’s made in a distillery that’s 200 years old, so they know what they’re doing — barrel-aged Islay single malt Scotch. Then they soak the toothpicks in this very special scotch until its rich peaty flavor is completely absorbed by the wood. After, they dry the premium single malt Scotch soaked toothpicks in a kiln, so that it is really baked in there.

These toothpicks are really good when you’re in AA and you need a quick fix — err, maybe that’s not such a good idea. They definitely hit the spot after you’ve had something salty like bacon. Or if you want to get super fancy when you need to make hors d’oeuvres for your next dinner party.

You can carry them in your pocket so that you always have them handy. Or in your glove compartment. Or in your man bag. You wouldn’t want to be caught dead with a piece of spinach between your teeth, would you? We sure wouldn’t.

Now if you’re wondering why on earth it costs $35.99 for a small pack of toothpicks, here’s what the folks at Daneson say: “This is because they are made with very old, very good, very expensive single malt scotch and are a pain in the arse to make. This time consuming process is unique to Daneson, and the resulting toothpicks are for those who enjoy finer things in life.”

So yeah, if you enjoy the finer things in life, go ahead, pick up a pack.
