Got a favorite scotch? Name your poison
 
My brother came in for Thanksgiving bearing a bottle of Talisker scotch. Never was much of a scotch drinker but that variety was pretty good. Wondering now about other single malt scotches.

The MaCallan - I've only had the 12yr, but it's got a nice sweet caramel after taste. It's my favorite singlemalt that I've had.

Not really, Even though I am Irish and Spanish (Spain, not mheecho) I am a Jack Daniels drinker when I drink hard stuff.

Bowmores Islay, 15 year old single malt. It is a bit strong flavore-wise, but I enjoy it.

Glenlivet :loaded

Oban or Johnnie Walker Green Label.

Sidecardoug 12-11-2009 03:48 PM

Lagavulin or Glenfiddich

Bought the latter today at the Duty Free as I crossed back into the US.

Washington State has the highest liquor taxes in the country.

Glenmorangie Quinta Ruban
Oban
Any 15 year or older Macallan (stay away from the cask strength, it puts hair on your stomach)

I'm happy with any of those. I buy a bottle for my old man every year for his birthday in November so that we'll have some around come Christmas at his house. :freaky

says right on it "From Scotland's Famous (unnamed) Distilleries"

Macallan 18...nothin' better in my book.

Tried the 24 but it was too smooth for me.

The Talisker Distillers Edition is very good.

Although, I think you'll only find it here:

If you like Talisker try something a little stronger from Islay. I'd highly recommend Ardbeg Uigeadail, Laphroiag Quarter Cask and Lagavulin 16. If you're not so into peat, I really like The Balvenie Double Wood and 15 Single Barrel.

Just start tasting stuff and you'll find what you like soon enough!

Talisker beats any of the glens in my book. I'm a big fan. Going to have to see if any of these are available near me.
