Question 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.

Another vote here for Ardbeg for the smokie flavor. Many agree.
Ardbeg makes another that is very hard to get ahold of, called SuperNova which is measured as the smokiest of all Scotches.

reviews abound for Ardbeg

Only two kinds of Scotch

... the kind you buy and the kind I buy. The kind you buy always tastes better than the kind I buy.

Seriously, all good recommendations here. There's another Scotch thread on here that is very informative. Do a search. While sampling some of these fine recommendations. If you're new to Scotch, perhaps a very little bit of clean water and ice to mellow it and bring out the fragrance. And don't forget a good cigar to go with it.

+ 5 on the cigar suggestion. That is another vice I have grown fond of.

Single Malt

Glenmorangie does it for me. Probably too often.
