Basically, I was this guy. I purchased a pack, and I’m fairly sure they still reside in a dusty box somewhere. As someone with a fondness for fine whiskey  — though more a bourbon man than Scotch — and a bottle of Woodford Reserve staring at me tonight, my curiosity is piqued as to just what those Scottish whiskey condoms taste like. I may never know, but I do know vanilla, mint, and strawberry, chocolate and a whole host of other flavored condoms are readily available. They may be more novelty than anything, but they surely catch your attention in a bar, and more condom vending machines in everyday venues would go a long way towards normalizing condom use and making them more readily available.
