    +1 DWFII's willingness to share his extensive experience with us is without equal on this forum.

    I agree. EGs are outstanding shoes. Not a fan of Lobb styling, lasts, etc. C&J is good, but not EG.

    Lagavulin was my introduction to the difference between top single malt and blends. Before that, Johnnie Walker Gold was my drink. I have not had any since that fateful day.

    I prefer the southerly located distilleries, which tend to blow you away with the big Peat taste. Ardbeg (which dwfii obviously approves of) & Laphroig are just behind Laggy, I think.

    Growing up my father drank Oban 18. Like father like son. Although I settle for 14 usually as the 18 is next to impossible to find these days; never mind a grail bottle of 32.

    I am Scotch fan. Ardbeg is great (particular like their one of kinds like the Aligator and the Super Nova, etc) but I will drink almost any single malt, the Balvenie, etc. Don't throw away your JW. I have tasted countless Scotches and, despite being a blend, JW Black holds its own very well.

    My daily dram is the Laphroaig quarter cask. It's got just a touch of salt which really compliments the smoky peat flavor.

    Since we've diverted to this a moment, I think you all should be aware of this: http://www.maltmadness.com/malt-whisky/best-whisky.html

    it make sense.

    yes,
    lt make sense.

    yes.
    it make sense.
    me ask me shoe maker to do 16 spi on sole and he say no,
    he say same thing like you and say his round awl take away to much leather and make it weak.
    8 - 12 spi good on single sole.

    what awl you like?
    round awl?
    square awl?
    or one that do slash and make thread invisible?
