    Same. Love it on the rocks.

    My favorite (best I've had so far)

    My dad has a bottle of Macallan 30 (I think ~$900 bottle) and probably 10 or so different other scotches aged 20-30 years. He hasn't opened them yet :curses: but I'm there when he does.

    This.

    I've only had Dewar's 12 yr Special Reserve, and Speyburn 10 yr. Going to look for better when they're empty, and have gotten a few recommendations in the whiskey thread. Wouldn't mind some more (think ~$50-$100 level). The heavier the oak flavor, the better.

    Good topic. If you're looking for a good single malt for less than $30 for regular consumption, check out Speyburn Highland.

    I prefer mine with ice but no water. The ice mellows it enough for my liking. Good scotch reallt doesn't need water.

    Glenlivet 18 yo is my favorite so far. I really just started drinking scotch though.

    I have only had about 7 kinds, but that Glenlivet was by far the best I have had to date.

    Can't remember the name, but it starts with a C. It is a single malt and has a very peaty taste.

    very well done.

    I believed it because I have run into people who mix scotch with coke and think its normal.

    Clynelish?

    About the only one that I can think of that is well known and starts with a C. Very good scotch for decent price.

    Chivas doesn't make anything worth writing home about. I'm more of a bourbon guy than a scotch drinker, but when I do venture into the scotch world I always seem to come back to the Macallan 12 year.

    I will have to buy a bottle of the Macallan. I agree with on Chivas, the only reason I have a second bottle is it was gift.

    Pretty cool list I just found.

    Sorry Seavie. I just called the restaurant I usually drink the scotch you're referring to figure out what it is. The asshole who answered the phone said, "Sorry man, you should be more specific next time."

    It tastes like a goddamn cigar. How much more specific do I need to be? Fuck take out order pieces of shit. Good luck working your way up to waitstaff you incompetent piece of shit.

    glenfiddich 12 is pretty reasonably priced, it's in my opinion the best bang for the buck in scotches. then again, flavor profiles in scotch are so diverse you might think it's crap (but don't tell me that :blount:)
