There is a lot of sense in this post. Unfortunately, I don't subscribe to it myself, but sometimes I wish I would...

That said, I've bought far worse things than Galileo. I'm looking at you most of the Bruichladdich releases I've bought.

*COUGHWAVESROCKSETCCOUGH*

That said, I'm on my 2nd bottle of The Laddie. Good value there, imo.

BTW, did you wind up pulling the trigger on you know what?

The newer Laddie stuff is much better now that it has actual ownership. Rocks, Waves, golf courses, countries, first growths, all that (with very, very few exceptions) were just terrible.

In the cart, out of the cart, in the cart. I'm 99% sure that I'll buy it by the end of the week...

Decided to go with the Highland Park 12. Going to open it up after dinner tonight. Thanks to everyone who suggested it

I would like to try drinking more scotch, I have only tried Dewars and found it pretty enjoyable. For under ~$35 what would be the top 3 to try?

$35 is a bit of a tough price point for scotch. There's a lot of bourbons I like around that, but I usually go for scotch in the $50-60 range.


Might be able to find Balvenie Doublewood for around $35. That's a great value scotch.

I was going to suggest Doublewood too. Its around $30 here, but prices here are rather low (thankfully). Short of that Glenlivet 12 or Glenfiddich 12 I suppose. 'livet 12 is a bit better.

$35 is tough, Bruichladdich rocks and laddie 10 are both about $45-$50.

Oh, ok. Wine-searcher finds some shops with 28-35$ for the HP12 and Laphroiag 10 though.

That seems a little light for the average shop to carry HP12 for. Laph 10 for that is possible on sale.

Anyone have experience with Balvenie Caribbean Cask 14 Year? Thinking of picking it up, as it sounds like something I'd like from the few reviews I've read.

Bought a bottle for my girlfriend earlier this year. Quite nice. I am not the kind of person qualified to give a review on this though (I'll leave that to someone like Ama) as I normally stick to bourbon/rye, but it was incredibly smooth and mellow, with the rum based notes not dominating or overpowering the whiskey.

thats definitely on my short list.
