Macallan 12 was definitely my gateway, and a great all rounder. It's not very smoky though. I think Highland Park 12 is another great all rounder, and is one step up on smokiness from Macallan 12.

Yeah, I'm quite looking forward to trying the Uigeadail. I actually just received my bottle of Nam Beist today. I had to hunt for it because it's sold out everywhere and no longer in production, haven't even tried it yet. Uigeadail may be next.

I started with Macallan 12, the gateway. Drank it over the course of a year (I was a novice). Bought a bottle of Macallan 18, dank it over the course of a month. That was it. Since then (about 5 months ago), I have purchased the following (in order of purchase): Aberlour Abunadh Suntory Yamazaki 12 Balvenie Doublewood Bruichaladdich Peat Balvenie Madeira Highland Park 18 Glenmorangie Nectar D'or Oban 14 Springbank 10 Laphroaig QC Ardbeg Nam Beist I went...
For what it's worth, I sized down 1/2 size in mine.
Florsheims sound intersting.
Final Reductions. Thanks!
