I'm a big Mezcal fan, trying the Alipus varieties currently, but try different brands when we're out. Haven't tried the Clas Azul yet, but will likely grab a bottle soon.
Yeah the tequila bug bit me recently and have been doing a bunch of flights and buying the bottles I enjoy, a few of them have been Mezcal - I especially like the casamigos mezcal.

I do a lot of my bulk shopping in VT - many of my fav's are $5-10 less, sometimes more especially with a sale (and an excuse for another trip thru the ADK). If you email or call, they can often get things that are not on the list. They say that, for distributors, selling in the USA is really like 50 different countries, and it shows with pricing - some cheaper here in NYS, some cheaper there.

Highland Park Dark Origins (sadly not much left and discontinued)
Glenmorangie Quinta Ruban
Balvenie Caribbean Cask 14yo
Talisker 10yo
Glendronach 12yo
Laphroaig 10yr CS
Oban Nights Watch (GOT)
Eagle Rare
Buffalo Trace
Red Breast 12yo
Kavalan Solist Port Cask
This isa great list.
My favorites are:
Deanston 20
Deanston 12
Clynelish 14
Lagavulin 16
Ardbeg uigeadail
Glenlivet 18
Tomatin 18
Quinta ruban 14

Bought a few things today based on recommendations. Will get others later. Also waiting on Japanese Hibiki to be available. Going to a whiskey tasting event in a few hours to check out some other ones.

Well I can vouch for the Monkey Shoulder. Very nice. I think I also had some Redbreast once and liked it but I drink to forget and sometimes it works.

Good eye, Ridel it is.

As to the pour, it just kept coming out. Hah

This is my first bottle of Teeling SG, I must say, I’m very impressed. I’d put it up with Yellow Spot...and I love love love Yellow Spot. I may have several more pours today and this week. Wow

That a nice variety, you’ve covered several different types. I wouldn’t worry about the Japanese just yet, you have a great selection to focus on enjoying.

I would say that I've tried many Scotches... from Speyside, to Highland to Islay...

My favorites-

Mac 12 / 18 Sherry / 15 Triple Cask
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.

GlenGrant 10 Years

If you can find it, I recommend the GlenGrant 10 Years. I don’t think you can find it in the US, but for those in Europe, this is a great bottle.
Cheers!
