I'm sure you're correct (and I'm just lazy and/or trying to be brief). The only reason I'm usually precise...at least when it comes to spelling...is that I have an inline spell checker. I suppose I get a little dependent on it and unfortunately it doesn't know the difference.

My apologies all around.

I was just a little confused by the amount of Google results (however, now that I check again, it somehow shows much fewer... oh well). Anyway, just so you know, it was a serious question.

I'm sure if you drink some more, your scotch will forgive you.

I realize I've only had a couple Highlands scotches and one Islay. Just wondering if anyone could recommend any others to try out next! 

 

I love Macallan, so if and when you are ready to try more, look for the 15 and my favorite, the 18, its a bit expensive, so don't rush on this.  You will appreciate it much more when you get a good acquired taste for scotch.  A few others to try out.. in between the 12-15 year range.

 

Glenmorangie

Dalmore

The Balvenie (14 year Caribbean Cask is great, 15 is awesome as well)

Oban 14 (my personal favorite and go-to scotch)

My most recent new one that I am enjoying.. Bruichladdich The Laddie Ten Year.  After a solid two years of drinking the more popular scotches, I am finally starting to get into the less well known scotches just to keep my interest going.  If you liked the Laphroiag, you will enjoy this scotch.  It isn't at peaty, but it packs a punch and still gives a smooth finish.  Delicous!

 

Thanks for the recommendations! I'll definitely try out some of those, I checked out the Laddie Ten Year today, heard some really good things about it, also the Bruichladdich Peat Project, have you tried it out? Haven't seen the Macallan 15 in any liquor stores yet, but I'll keep an eye out for it

Tonight started with the balvenie doublewood, then progressed to a few drams of ardbeg 10 year smile.gif

Ardbeg has really become my 'go-to' in the last week or so?

Hows the Bruichladdich 12? Any good?

with the cask strength stuff do you just drink it straight or add water yourself?
post #1869 of 3221
Up to you. I prefer a bit of water in most whisky--tames the alcohol a bit so that you can taste more of the intricacies.

This is where using local waters (local to the distillery) might have some currency.

There might be forgiveness to be found in a bottle of single malt scotch but I'll be damned if I go looking for it there.
