What other scotch have you tired?
Bartender friend had me try some type of Islay but it was too smokey for me to enjoy. Also tried Glenmorangie 10 yr - it's alright, but Glenlivet 15 yr has to be my favorite so far.

give the Macallan and the Balvenie brands a try. both are highland scotches that generally lack peatiness. Both are excellent.

check this page out at the bottom is a flavor map that you can play around with

A good go to is Highland park 12 it is middle road with its taste profile and will be a good intro to darker more robust scotches (but has nothing on an Islay). Macallan is fun, it lets you see all the light fruit flavors you can get in scotch but is pricey. Just some thoughts.

I have a bottle that is still half full, it was the first bottle I had ever got when I started exploring. Need to finish it one of these days :roll: maybe.

Same here - first Scotch, in 2010.
And it is a handle.

Just about half-full, little more.

Nice bar mike!

Ya I moved from scotch to wine because I don't have the money to support my scotch habit but for just fourteen bucks you can always find something new in the wine aisle.

Random thought, I need to find a bottle of tequila and gin that I like. I personally strongly dislike them but there has to be one that tastes good.

I've never been a big fan of gin but I enjoy Hendrick's. And it won't break the bank.

Tullamore Dew is not a bad drop for a cheap whiskey. Been drinking it as a mid-week night cap lately.

Agreed, it's solid for what you pay. And I meant the bar itself.... Definitely not talking about the bottle of Ed Hardy :lol:

Since when did they start making liquor, ha?

My Dad (and everyone else in our family pretty much) drink the fudge out of Dewars white label. Its what my grandpa drank so its what my dad and his 2 brothers drink. He usually has a handle of the 12 year on the bar so for Christmas I picked him up a bottle of the 15 year and my Mom got him a bottle of the 18 year. I found the 15 and 18 to be prettttty damn tasty. Im more of a bourbon guy though if I am drinking whiskey.

Like the Frangelico, the Galliano, and most of those bottles - for display purposes only.
I change some of them around.

It's not a "sit at the bar" bar - there are no seats - it's a "make drinks here to drink elsewhere in the house" bar, if that makes any sense.
