My favorite JW is Gold, also -- I like it better than Blue, and a much better value also. JW Black is my everyday whisky.

I like to think there is a whisky for every mood. Some days it's the delicacy of Dalwhinnie that's called for, or the power of Lagavulin, others the nuanced pleasure of the Crag distillery's edition, yet others it's the dancing finess of a sherry-finished Macallan.
A random sampling...note the three different Crags

We like have one mind on whisky or something, Tyto.
