So I know we got some scotch drinkers out there. What's in your collection, what's your go to for guests, your favorite new/of all time, and best value?
I'm just getting started with some bottles, but from various tastings I've decided I like the Highland/Speyside more than the Islay drams (yeah yeah not man enough yet).
The first whiskey I remember enjoying in a glass (other than slamming shots of Lord Calvert) was an Oban 14. Still a favorite. But more recently I was gifted:
Highland Park 15 ($70ish a bottle)
To be honest I was kind of disappointed. Further reading told me 12 is better bang for buck and the 18 is worth the extra coin.
Glenmorangie Signet ($150 - 200)
This is fantastic. Like drinking pecan pie in the form of whiskey. Prob over priced due to the LVMH label and fancy bottle but wouldn't stop me from buying another bottle.
Glenlivet Nadurra ($60 ish)
Bought this one myself as I heard good things. It's a nice light color and has a nice long finish that really lets you milk a glass.
Jonnie Gold ($90ish)
Bought this for myself after buying my brother a bottle of Blue as a gift (because we all know Blue is a rip off); and would drink it over the Blue if given a choice.
So, what's in your cabinet?
