1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    Cheers,

    If you like Glenlivet 18, you need to try Glenlivet's new offering, their 16-year "Nadurra" cask strength scotch. 114-proof, but you'd never realize it from the smoothness of it. I'm generally not a huge fan of Glenlivet, as I feel that they shoot for a very mild product, but this one was really quite nice. Had a lot of complexity and wasn't afraid to be a little daring....not Laphroaig daring, mind you, but still pretty assertive.

    Back to the original question as to where to start for a neophyte, this might be heresy, but may I suggest Jameson's 12yr? [​IMG] I realize that this is an Irish whiskey, not Scotch, but I find the Irish whiskeys generally lighter on the palate and, as such, a good place to begin. It's also good as an aperitif, where I find Scotch a better bet with cigars or later in the evening.

    Heresy it certainly is not. Jameson's is a great light whiskey, and is definitely good for beginners (or women, heh). 12 yr. is a classic.
