Maggi is basically soy sauce.  Some may desire that in a whisky but not me, and definitely not in the summer.  Maybe a cold winter night.

Perfect.

Picked up a little something on my way through Heathrow coming back to the US. Stuff is $200/bottle around here, was less than half that in the airport. Not a bad treat on the way home. It's a nice sherried dram. I like my sherried whiskey a little higher proof, but it's solid. Would have been rather upset at $200/bottle.

Ive always liked Dalmore even though after you step up from the 12 it can get exponentially expensive. (even the cigar malt). I usually recommend the 12 to people new to scotch as it is readily available and is of pretty good quality.
