Wasn't sure where to put this, but since fine cigars and quality whiskey seem to go together, I thought I'd mention this stuff. I'd never had it before and saw it at the liquor store today and thought I'd try it. It was in the same price range as a similar sized bottle of Woodford Reserve and Makers Mark(my regular drinks), so I thought 'why not?'. I must say that I'm pleasantly surprised at how smooth it is and intend purchase this stuff again. So, all you single malt guys out there should give it a try.

Thanks Murphy J. I am a fan of Macallan, Laphroig, Lagavaulin, Talisker and Glenfarclass myself. With all those price points, I tend to veer towards those not more than 12 years old.

Tonight, I'm opening a new bottle of Glendronach. Haven't tried it yet but I was told it's a good one.

Thanks for the tip. I'll hunt this down.subtlelaugh.gif

Oscar, that's a good one. hand6.gif I usually take Glenmorangie 12 whenever it's my turn at the barbie. My sons have the beer while papa goes for the firewatersubtlelaugh.gif. Somehow the cherry flavor down the throat and smoke up the nose from the ribs and fish blend bestsubtlelaugh.gif.

Do you drink it straight? I usually add 2 to 3 drops of water for every shot to open up the flavor.

A single malt thread! Cool! ThumbsUp02.gif

I was just talking to my buddy just the other day how it appears that many WIS are also big fans of single malts. I was converted to the joys of Islay whiskeys a few years ago and I'm a big fan of Laphroaig, Lagavulin, and Ardbeg. Just love the smokiness and peatiness of the Islays, but it really is an acquired taste. I've been unsuccessful in making a convert out of my buddy :D

Slainte!

If you like Lagavaulin, try out Talisker and Macallan 12 year olds. They are way too good for the money:)

Yeahhhhhhhhhhhh..........that's a good, smooth one but at 18 years old, it's too much out of reach. I like a little sting on the throat and 12 years is the sweet spot for me in terms of great, lasting taste.

Now, if the Cubans were rolled on thighs of young maidens, that would be perfectsubtlelaugh.gif

Thanks for the suggestions. I've had the Macallan 12 and 15 so I'll give the Talisker a try :)

True story... I manage a property in downtown Chicago. Across the hall from me, a tenant moved out after the CEO passed away. She was the lone employee and said that anything left behind could be taken. There was crap everywhere, mostly completely useless. Buried in an armoire, I found a bottle of Ballantine 30 Year Blended Scotch. I did some research and found that the latest it was blended was 1955, meaning the latest it had been bottled was 1985. My wife (then fiancee) and I wondered what we would celebrate with on our wedding day (after our wine toast). the taste was unbelievable. Considered one of the best blends made, ever, from what I have read. Well, to top off this story, I found out that the bottle was worth $800! And lo and behold, behind the pile of books in the back of the armoire was a 2nd bottle. It's in my liquor cabinet, waiting.
