“Your finest Scotch, please” (Scotch tape joke)

There’s a difference between Scotch whisky and Scotch tape, but there have been several jokes. “A glass of your finest Scotch tape” was posted on Twitter on August 18, 2015. “Even my tape is of the finest scotch” was posted on Twitter on December 2, 2015.
 
This version was posted on Twitter by Dave Cactus‏ on December 28, 2016:
 
“Your finest Scotch, please.”
“Yes, sir,” the guy at Staples says as he hands me a 12 year old roll of tape.

 
“Scotch tape doesn’t even taste like scotch” is a related joke.
