Scotch for Christmas? Yes, please! We had the chance to go to a Macallan Master Class tasting session a couple weeks ago where we sampled 18, 21, 25, and 30 year-old editions of the Macallan highland single malt Scotch whisky. They also had some cask-strength on hand that was tasty but extremely dangerous in potency. We talked to Graeme Russell, the brand ambassador for the Macallan about the class as well as who in TV likes Scotch - see the above video for his answers. If you enjoy Scotch, we highly recommend you attend one of these classes. The education you receive about how the Scotch is made as well as what tastes and smells one should look for in different editions leaves you a much more aware and knowledgeable enthusiast.

word has it that G4's "Web Soup" is dead
No more servings of "Web Soup" for G4? Comedian and TV writer Blaine Capatch was on the "WTF with Marc Maron Podcast" last week and said that the show is no more because "the network is out of money." That's a shame because even though "Tosh.0" won our What's Your Favorite Web Clip Show poll a few months back, we thought that there was room for more than one show and "Web Soup" was different enough and much more topical to ensure its longevity. Dear G4, how about less dumb cop shows, because, really, what does that have to do with what you do?
