Re: Alcohol Discussion!

The question is: what kind of scotch?

hmmm, perhaps Highland Park. It's good if you like a strong peat flavor, and it's strong even for scotch.

Re: Alcohol Discussion!

As i am just getting into scotch, i believe i will postpone on that one. The Ballantine's is rather smooth but not as strong as i guess scotch can be.

Also, i enjoy scotch.

What about you?
I like to try different varieties of craft beer, leaning either to hoppy or dark.
I also really like good bourbon and whiskey.
I've just begun to get into scotch, and it's rare that I run into other people who enjoy it. I'd like to know who here likes scotch and what brands are their favorite. Personally, I love Macallan's, GlenLivet and Glen Morangie.
I'm a big fan of scotch, especially single malts. I love Macallan's, Talisker and drank Glen Morangie for sometime. My current favorite that I always make sure to keep on hand is Balvenie, especially their 12 year old Doublewood.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Balvenie

It's nicely smooth, not too peaty, sweet but not too, too sweet, a tiny touch smokey and really relatively affordable (I can usually find it on sale for around $45 here.) In fact, I'm looking forward to coming home tonight and, after dinner, retiring to my patio with a glass and a cigar. It's what's going to get me through the day.

And not to beat a dead horse, but I just have to say about this ....

Pretty gay, I know.
This is for another thread but i will say this and then move on: i am gay and so i do find that rather insulting. All i ask is for you to not say that. Thank you.
I sincerely apologize. A poor choice of words on my part. I'm very sorry that I offended you.
I like you even more now. We recently had an entire thread on this topic, that went of for pages and pages and days and days, and there were still people who didn't get it. You're a somewhat rare bird around these parts: sensitive to others' feelings, like scotch, and Buffett (not to mention Trek). If I had a sister, I'd want to set you up with her.

Re: Alcohol Discussion!

^Thanks for the kind words. Although if you talked to my wife you might change your mind, especially considering the condition I was in after the Buffett concert. I haven't had Talisker or Belvenie yet. I'll add them to the list.

Re: Alcohol Discussion!

The Dalmore is a fine scotch.

Re: Alcohol Discussion!

^I just read some reviews of the Dalmore and its pretty well rated and the price is really reasonable as well. Like many kinds of scotch its aged in sherry casks. Doesn't it have really strong sherry undertones or is it more subtle? I don't like an overpowering sherry flavor.

Agreed. I regret that I left Dalmore off the list. Quite nice.
