    If we are talking 12 year olds, I prefer Glenlivet over The Macallan. I'm with Blotto, I always have a bottle of Glenlivet at the pad.

    I prefer the 15yo Macallan. I have the 10 also and can really taste the difference. What does this Oban taste like? Is it "peaty" or smooth like Macallan?

    Oh dear lord.... d-d-d-d-DEWARS w-w-w-w-white label. The name alone starts me trembling. I can't even have it in the house anymore. It's a love/hate relationship: I LOVE drinking it, but hate waking up at 4am in the neighbors rosebushes with my pants around my ankles. Seriously, with the first gulp that witches brew lays waste to my self control.

    the 14-year old Oban will definitely drive the same point home that the Macallan 15 does, but the finish is (i'd say) even more delicate than the Macallan 10 or 12. not peaty whatosever and similar to a Glenlivet 25, though not as bold... it is strong enough though that it absolutely will not lose any body even if you were to introduce a little water to it.

    blotto, Mr. I, and myself all have a very different #2. however i can taste the distinctions they are tasting in Oban.

    For me - any three words. I can't stand scotch. I've tried and tried but it just tastes like dirty ass to me.

    GlenLivet 12 is also my everyday house whiskey. But when I'm 'drinking' It's Lagavulin. I love the smokiness. The first sip is strong but then it settles in so nicely..almost tastes like a campfire. If you have not tries this one you are really missing out. But give it about 5 sips before making your decision. It's a controversial taste but is my fav.

    Others are Oban, Macallan 18, Balvanie 15, Highland Park.

    Yes the difference between a 10 y.o. and 12 y.o and 18 y.o. is very apparent. I'm pretty desperate when I drink a 10 y.o.

    Lagavulin was one of the first I ever enjoyed. I think the salty peatiness of the Islay scotches is really good. I have a bottle of Laphroig (Islay) at home that's pretty good, but kinda "medicinal." Also had some Bowmore 12 (I think) the other day and thought it was a little astringent.

    When Highland Park is $39 at BevMo, it's my everday drink.

    While I'm sure it's good, you're disqualified--it's a blend.
