Scotch

Recommended Posts

All things scotch related. I'm a Glenmorangie man myself. Love their special editions, the last two (Bacalta and Spios) have been fantastic. If you want to discuss heavily peated scotches I'm not your man.

Picked up a Signatory 28 year Scotch at Specs. Should be right up your alley. Pretty good too. You should also give Highland Park 18 a try. Both a little over 100 a bottle. It was a good buy for me.

Lagavulin 16 for Celebrations

Ardbeg 10 with friends and family

Monkey Shoulder for just wanting a drink, or people I'm not sure I like yet

Famous Grouse for mixing, but I prefer going Irish if that's what I'm looking to do

I'm no connoisseur, but those are all solid at different price points IMO

Ardbeg Uigeadail - It is peat plus, but delicious.

Ballantines and Famous Grouse are good daily drinker blends.  I think Ballentines is very underrated...and cheap.

It took me awhile to get use to it. Now I'm rollin.

$59.99 is a steal. Buy it all.

It's a close call between Lagavulin 16 and Uigeadail for the best all-around scotch on the market that isn't insanely expensive. Uigeadail can be difficult to find sometimes, though.

Uigeadail is what I am working on these days. Heavy peatiness with the flavor and smoothness from sherry casks is just...incredible. It is complex but also a punch in the nose at the same time.

Days when I don't want that I have Talisker 10yr for something a bit smoother and more subtle.

For everyday drinking I stick to bourbon.

$59.99 for Lagavulin 16. Is that a good price?

Goes for about $92 to $115 where I am, so I would say get a couple  :)

So my future brother in law came over Saturday night, bought me a bucket of KFC, case of lone star, bottle of Crown, and lagavulin 16. Completely unexpected, would have been happy with lone star but the scotch was a "whoa" moment. 

He was also drunk cause he took home the chicken afterwards

$60 for Lagavulin is pretty much what I paid at the duty free in Edinburgh.

Is that a 512 costco perchance?

Really liking the Laphroaig Quarter Cask. A little more subtle and less burning bandaids/in your face peat than it’s counterpart (which I really enjoy also.)

Given that I also see Blantons and Balcones Baby Blue, what time are you hosting all of us for the tasting.......

My favorite these days. Aberlour 16.  I like the 16 best, 12 second, and 18 third (which is nice for price considerations).

Had to bump this.  Opened up some Balvenie triple cask 16.  Got damn. 
 

Worth taking a break from my bourbon supplies.

Visited the Aberlour distillery last time I was in Scotland. Brought back a bourbon cask and sherry cask bottle that they let me hand label.
