    Liking it so far. I've only opened the Macallan, but I think this will work out well. I don't have very developed taste buds, but I definitely tell that it's sweeter and maybe tasting some honey. It is still a bit harsh though.

    a splash (more like a few drops per pour) of spring water can help open it up a touch .... this may give you a better sense of flavors on your palate. I hope you know already, no ice and no cutting a regular proofed scotch with water (aside from the drops).

    trying the Glenlivet (which I do like more than the Macallan now)

    Incredibly smooth compared to what I'm used to. Definitely like this.

    Both are fine but I prefer the Glencairn's shape, price tag, and sturdiness.

    Just kidding... just a couple standard 8oz ones if it is a longer outing.

    So Macallan is technically a Highland but they claim Speyside?

    Reasoning behind my comment, from wiki:

    Since the Scotch Whisky Regulations 2009 came into force labelling of bottles of Scotch whisky has been regulated, and currently produced bottles of The Macallan indicate it is a Highland Single Malt. However the website for the brand indicates that "The Original and Spiritual Home" of The Macallan is Speyside,[5] an area near Strathspey.
