    Btw I have a Limited Edition Balvenie 17YO Sherry Oak. Anybody else try this yet? I can't say I like it all that much... Expensive bottle too.

    this is the one i'm currently on:



    it's got a spicy, peppery kick but once that's gotten over with, it's pretty smooth going down. i was doing the ice cube thing with it before but now i'm accustomed to just drinking it neat.
    normally at $80, i got it for $57 at hi-times.


    mr. box is on this, which i got for him as an anniversary gift:



    i like the glenlivet 18 better. it's overall more smooth.


    i just got this for my father in law as a christmas gift:



    hopefully, he'll share a pour of it with us before we depart after the holiday.


    i've got my eye out for another bottle of something else that i'm getting as a gift for someone. still deliberating on what that shall be...

    What type of glassware do you guys prefer for drinking scotch? Does it even matter?

    Ahh man, I haven't had Macallan in quite some time so it would be difficult to compare. But I always found Macallan to be a bit harsh. Even the 21. Great flavor, but almost too harsh to drink neat. I should probably try it again sometime to refresh my memory. I can say though that the Singleton is VERY smooth for the price.

    Haven't tried it. What don't you like about it?

    I LOVE the Glenfarclas 21!!! Got one at Duty Free last year, and drank almost the whole bottle with a friend in one sitting. It was too damn good to put down.

    I couldn't agree more on the Talisker. I hated it at first, then was morbidly fascinated, then I kinda liked it, then I just downed the whole ****ing bottle. The burning tire thing overwhelms at first, but when it blows off behind it are some deep and really gorgeous second and third-tier flavors.

    And interesting that the Glenlivet 18 is smoother than the 21. Could be teh casks they used.

    Oban is another one that's hard to stop drinking. Actually I could go for one right about now.....

    Wow, in one week, due to Bogey's direction (infinite karma) I find a beer thread, a wine thread, and a scotch thread. Is there also a bourbon thread? That would make my day. BTW, my favorite scotch for the last 12 years has been Highland Park, made in the Orkney Islands. Heaven in a bottle man. Just heaven. Any souls of a like mind out here?

    I want to give scotch a try. My palette just isn't quite there yet. I still feel like I'd get the same taste if I siphoned gas out of my car. *shiver* eeesh

    Yes, and it's tip top. I would recommend having a bottle on hand always. Even my non-scotch drinking friends like Highland Park. Of course they may just say that b/c they know I'm a whisky/whiskey freak.
