So what's your favorite scotch? I have been enamored with Jonny Walker Blue lable when the funds support its purchase (which ain't often :)). Another fav is 12 year old Glenlivet. If i'm just wanting a quick fix with a quality cigar, J&B is usually good. Any thought on single malt VS. blends?

A blended scotch is like having sex with a relative, it just aint right !

Now if you could afford to buy a bottle of Ilse of Sky or any well aged and mellow single malt you might have an enjoyable evening with your cigars.

My normal is 18 year old Glenlivet when I can find it. After that is GlenMaregin (can't spell it) and then Glenfiddich.
Lot's of other singles still to try though.:biggrin: :eek: :love:

Here's some Scotch Links:




My favorite lately is 17 yr old Ardbeg nice sweet after taste. I also have a bottle of 12 yr Bowmore nice smokey, almost taste the sea air after taste.

After tasting a good single malt the blended varieties are just plain bland.

Nothing like a good single malt! The only blends in my house were collected for raffles ect. and I save the good stuff for myself and special guests! As Alabama has strange laws regarding alcohol, the selection of many good single malts is not what it could be so I look forward to the occasional trip out of state.

I feel your pain. Best go get another one and think of me. Or better yet, give me the first swig.

Laphroiag indeed! :bow: I love that when my taste buds are 'getting out of line'lol. I re-introduce them to the iodine of the sea kelp in the mash water. Amazing stuff with a splash.

Also, you have to try the sherry cask conditioned Glenlivet. Ungodly good! The ultimate sipper with a Tom Clancy book and a cigar. As good as sex, to a man who just had it, hahah.

Ironically enough, that's the favorite scotch of Scotland for the 'regulars'. A very solid blend, and very affordable. Quite underrrated here, I've had a bit of that as well on my less 'prestigious' events, ahem. lol. :wink:

I love Whiskey and Scotch is a damn good form of it. I really like the JW Blue as well... served straight up, neat.

I have to be careful though. Not all Scotch treats me the same. Some make me mellow and some make me quite "Scottish". :biggrin:
