    That's what I usually do. I'll put one cube in my glass and swirl it around to get a little melted for that tiny bit of water. Sometimes I'll fish out the rest of the cube.

    I guess we'll have to take your word for it. I, myself, have never tasted "dirty ass" before.

    It tastes like scotch. Only chunkier.

    I used to drink Laphroig, but Lagavulin is far superior (IMO). It's less medicinal and the peaty flavor is less intense. Both are pricey, but then again, I don't drink this stuff everyday!

    Mmm. I'm enjoying a glass of Glenlivet 12 right now (washing down a steak) and I'd like to ask if anyone can recommend a single-malt for the same price: 25 bucks or less that's this good. I'd be happy to try.

    $25 is hard to do. The 12 year Balvenie is $32 at BevMo....Actually, Trader Joes has a bottle with the TJ name on it that was decent. I think it was around $20. I would drink it again.

    the TJ's single malt is manufactured by a big hitter company whose name escapes me right now... you MAY be able to nab the Balvenie at TJ's for cheaper as well. they are always seemingly putting the 12-year on sale.

    and personally, i like it much better than the more expensive Double Wood.
