Glenmorangie 10 (original) --> My favorite
and one that I can't seem to remember the name, Glenmacchancie?
Any other recommendations for a beginner?
I actually love a tumbler for whisky sometimes. My father gave me these beautiful cracked tumblers back in the day that I adore, with their beautiful cut glass rims.
Right now I am drinking some of my celebratory Rattray Mortlach 19. This stuff is SOOO GOOD. It is not the smoothest whisky ever, but is is so very flavorful. I love big, Christmas-y meaty whiskies for their treacle-like richness, especially when it is no derived merely from sherry, which is a much lighter and sweeter sort of richness. Mortlach and Royal Lochnagar basically rule for me.
My 140pf Mortlach would challenge even you neat!
