Balvenie 12 Doublewood
Aberlour Abundah - varies by cask

If you like slighly peaty- Highland Park 18... if you like extremely peaty; then Lagavulin 16

Abolutely cannot stand JW black or Glen 12... but Glenfiddich 12 is a great option for the price point.
Did a tasting at a local wine depot yesterday and half was bourbon from US and half Aberlour. The Aberlour 16 was really good!

It is very smooth. It has some smokiness to it as most mezcals do but it is a very easy drinker, I prefer it neat. I prefer all tequilla neat as you really don't get into "barrel proof" stuff as much as you do with whiskey.

The Arbelour 16 is my favorite Arbelour. The smooth Ambler is a pretty solid pour as well, it just doesn't stand out enough from anything else for me to justify buying it.

Just bought a bottle of Lagavulin 16 from Costco. Almost $20 cheaper vs Total Wine.

Anyone have experience with Bulleit Rye? I really like Whistlepig Straight Rye so thinking I should try other rye whiskeys.

Was that Smooth Ambler single barrel MGP juice or Dickel juice?

I have a bottle from Dickel, and while MGP is the darling of the bourbon nerd crowd, I think my bottle from Dickel is delicious.

I don't prefer Scotch, but I agree on that Aberlour 16!

Well, if it was a distributor or "brand ambassador", I wouldn't expect them to focus much on the source - just the name on the label, regardless.

I was in the same boat and got lucky and found a bottle of the 18. Much to my surprise, I ended up preferring the 12.

Cant go wrong with either though!

Can’t believe I just stumbled on this thread! I generally prefer SM Scotch but enjoy bourbon as well. My current stock includes:

Bourbon

Orphan Barrel Barterhouse
Orphan Barrel Gifted Horse
Orphan Barrel Rhetoric 23
Bib & Tucker Small Batch 6 year (got this as a gift, anyone ever tried it?)

Scotch

Macallan 12
Oban 14
Laphroig 18
Yamazaki 12
Gordon Macphail Speymalt Macallan ‘98
Scapa Orcadian
Glenfiddich 14 bourbon barrel reserve
Glenmorangie Signet

The Scapa was my “gateway” scotch. It’s what started me on this wallet-draining path, lol.

The Signet was a splurge bottle. If you like scotch and have a chance, try it. It’s phenomenal.

Welcome!

I've got a bottle of Signet my wife spoiled me with that I've yet to open. I've heard it's amazing!

Yeah I know... I set a goal to loose some weight, and pop it when I hit the magic number. I'm close but not there yet!

Didn't make it up north for the big sale, but I hit the local store and grabbed a Jameson IPA Cask and a regular Jameson. Strictly as a disinfectant, you understand. Keep the pipes clean and all.

Smokey. It's funny, I've been drinking whisk(e)y since way before I should have. I remember being at a friends place when I was like 28 and he gave me some Lagavulin and I though WTF, why does this taste like a campfire. Anyway, fast forward and now I really like the smokey salty stuff. Talisker....yum fucking yum.
