   For custard: Scald half and half in heavy medium

   double boiler until smooth. Gradually whisk in hot
   half and half.  Set over boiling water and stir until
   custard is very thick and mounds when dropped from
   spoon, about 6 minutes.  Set top of double boiler over
   ice and chill custard, whisking occasionally.  Mix in
   vanilla.
   
   Combine whipping cream and espresso powder in large
   bowl and stir until powder dissolves.  Beat to firm
   peaks.  Add Scotch and beat until firm. Fold cream
   mixture into cold custard in 2 additions. (Can be
   prepared 1 day ahead.  Cover and refrigerate.)
   
   For trifle: Place half of pound cake cubes in 3-quart
   trifle bowl or glass bowl.  Sprinkle with 3
   tablespoons Scotch and toss.  Heat jam in heavy small
   saucepan until just pourable.  Spoon half of jam over
   cake and spread.  Top with half of custard.  Top with
   1/2 the raspberries, making sure some berries show at
   sides of bowl.  Top with half of bananas.  Place
   remaining pound cake cubes in another bowl.  Sprinkle
   with 3 tablespoons Scotch and toss.  Layer fruit over.
   Spoon remaining jam over and spread. Top with
   remaining custard, then with other halves of
   raspberries and bananas.  Cover and refrigerate until
   set, at least 3 hours.  (Can be prepared 1 day ahead).
   
   Whip cream and sugar in large bowl to stiff peaks.
   Add 3 tablespoons Scotch and beat to firm peaks.
   Mound cream atop trifle.  Garnish with fresh
   raspberries and chocolate.
