I just had some Johnny Walker Blue Label. Best damn blended scotch I've ever had.

i hear that's very good, but for the money it costs, i'd rather buy a single malt.

My roomate bought the bottle at the duty free shop, so I'll be having more of it soon. Don't worry so much about the Blue Label being a blend, it's easily better than half of the single malts I've had. Trust me.

Hats off to Johnny Blue. If you're going to drink a blend, it's the way to go.
But for that money (heck for half of the price of Johnny Blue) there are some good 15-21 year single malts and some interesting independent bottlings that have a much more complex flavor profile.
Hope you enjoyed the Blue Mr. I.

I got my JW Blue from BevMo for $160 awhile ago, the best price around that I could find, without looking too hard. Everywhere else was closer to $200.

Hey there fellow Scotchers. I had mentioned in a previous post that I had been dramming with some locals in the LA Scotch Club. Well, we have a meeting set for Friday July 17 in Sherman Oaks. Check out the page at: The Los Angeles Scotch Club
It looks like the selections are all across the board with a super peaty whisky, a young Macallan, a couple well-aged Cadenheads bottlings and (what looks to be) a interesting Springbank. So we've got peaty, Speyside and Lowland covered.
Price is only $20 if you reserve in advance. Check out the site or PM me for more details. Hope to see you there.
