    From both the customer and editorial reviews it sounds like this might be worth picking up. The only book I have on whiskey is a book called World Whiskey and it is a decent read. About an inch thick with plenty of tasting notes and nice pictures as well guides to glasses, bottles sizes/shapes, how whiskey is made and where various whiskeys come from. It includes 700+ notes on primarily scotch but includes Irish, Rye, Bourbon, Tennessee, Asian, and boutique brand whiskey. It's on special for $10 on Amazon.

    David Broom new book "The World Atlas of Whisky: More Than 300 Expressions Tasted" is very good. I highly recommend it.

    I'm now in my 5th bottle of the Gordon Macphail HP 8yo, counting two I've given away. Best bang for your buck in the world of scotch right now, hands down - and I never feel bad serving this to friends.

    I went to a dry wedding (read: no open or pay bar... but no mention of not bringing your own booze) on the East Coast last year. The morning of, we stopped by a CVS with a rather large liquor store next door. I popped in and saw they had the G&M HP 8yr on sale for $24. The lady and I smuggled the bottle in in her bag and left it under our table during the reception. About an hour later, I was everyone's best friend.

    so having tried the ardbeg supernova at a friend's house last week i went to try and get hold of some.. turns out it's pretty difficult. i was offered the corryvreckan instead, which i might pick up- anyone care to recommend any other readily available options?

    What?! I know each person tastes things differently, but I don't know man. Jack Daniels goes down like water, and by that I mean it's light-bodied, vanilla-y, and sweet. Not much else going on - it isn't dry/oaky, smoky, or anything. Very mellow, easy to drink, appeal to the masses type whiskey. Johnnie Black, on the other hand, is very smoky (relative to Jack), has a bit more heavy-bodied, and from what I recall, has a fair bit more burn. Neither is "harsh," but Johnnie Black is a lot less "easy drinking" than Jack from what I recall.

    On another note, I tried some Springbank 10yr yesterday - it was very good, despite being served at warmer than room temperature.
