Hi Reed,
To be clear, the role of the scotch in the mix is simply to break the viscosity of the mixture down a bit so it is absorbed into the wood rather than roll off like soap. Other things like denatured alcohol would also work, though DNA certainly is NOT interchangeable with scotch in other applications.
I admire and respect your long commitment to a healthy life, and in no way was inferring that adding scotch was the secret to skill development in chasing threads by hand. If used in the wrong proportion, it can indeed screw things up in a rather different manner.
