Important Legal Work

I was in the midst of writing an incredibly important email when my mind went blank:

Me: [To a senior attorney] Are you a scotch drinker?
Senior Attorney: I have been known to from time to time…
Me: I'm trying to remember the name of a scotch. Single malt. 16 years old. Islay.
Senior Attorney: If it's not in a brown paper bag, then I'm not interested...
Me: [Oblivious] Lagavulin!
Senior Attorney: ...the last bottle I drank it was misspelled on the label...
Junior Attorney: How do you misspell 'Scotch'?
