    Haven't been drinking Scotch as much, but the last bottle I got a couple of months ago was the Auchentoshan 21yr. It's a nice break from my regular Macallan bottles or JW Blue.

    so what's a good scotch to start off with so that I broaden my horizons beyond a blend like Johnny Walker? preferably something that's not too expensive

    glenlivet 12 yr. smooth, not too overwhelming. you can even try it at a bar first as any bar that carries single malts should have this one. or get a bottle at hi times for $24.

    that's why I didn't mention it. otherwise, I could've named a bunch of others I've got sitting on my counter.

    btw, sipping on that balvenie 12 that I got for my sister in law and it's divine! it costs $38 at hi times. FYI nayagamj, I never buy scotch at bevmo. the salespeople there don't know crap and the bottles are marked up ridiculously.

    Balvenie 12; Highland Park 12; if you like that, move on to something peated like a Laphroig 10, Bowmore 12, or Caol Ila.

    And of course if you want to mortgage a house or trade in a car, go ahead and buy that Glenfiddich 50.

    Haven't dipped into my single malts much lately, but hit this a few times last night:



    I'd forgotten how good it was. DAMMMN.

    Sure, many whiskeys get their beautiful deep hues from caramel coloring, but in this case how such a thick, oily, richly flavored, and massively peaty mother****er can be almost totally clear in color boggles the mind.
