Glenlivet 12 - Just finished a bottle. Good to have on hand.
Balvenie 12yr Doublewood - Recently uncorked a bottle and I'll be buying again. Probably try the Caribbean cask as well.
McAllan 12 Sherry Cask (I think 12, been a while since I bought any)
Glenmorangie 10 year old. I'll have to try another variety. Not ready to close the book on them yet.
Aberlour - Haven't had it in about twenty years. Maybe time to try it again.
JW Blue. It was a gift and it was great. It's just too bad I can't convince myself that I deserve $200 Scotch on a regular basis.
Chivas Regal is only drinkable on the rocks, for me anyway.
Tomintoul's Peaty Tang. Clearly, you need to like peaty. I like it.
Glen Moray - Tried a bottle and I have to agree with what my SIL said; "It's my "I don't like you" Scotch" for those kind of guests. LOL

There are some questions better left unasked.

Tireless is complicated, or perhaps bat sh!t crazy. This would be another of those questions

Come to Kentucky. Our bars and restaurants are overrun with every bourbon you can think of. Scotch, not so much.



Of course, bourbon is made in Kentucky. If it is made elsewhere, it aint really bourbon.

McClellan is not bad at all for the price. It was one of my early favorites.

Just picked up a bottle of Monkey on your recommendation. Interested to see how it is.

Fair point. I assume Al was involved in some sick way.
