+1 DWFII's willingness to share his extensive experience with us is without equal on this forum.
Sorry! Think about me...I had to write them!
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
