I haven’t seen a thread about Scotch on the new board, and I think it’s time. Weigh in on the best/worst you’ve had, your “go to” brand, best blend, etc. Also, any interesting anecdotes or stories about bad decisions associated with Scotch would be welcome.

For me:

Best = Balvenie 21 year old port wood finished. Unbelievable.

Worst = Clan MacGregor. Just no. Don’t know why I did it. Tastes like kerosene and desperation.

“House brand” = Glenlivet 12 year old. It’s great and won’t break the bank.

Best special occasion but won’t break the bank scotch = Lagavulin 16 year old. Smokey on the front end, but great finish. Perfect with a cigar.

Best blend = Johnny Blue.

Best affordable blend = Dimple Pinch. Not too pricey and fairly complex.

Of you have any extra, ship it my way. Liquor stores around here for some reason don’t like Scotch at the moment.

Picked this up when I was in northern Scotland and did a distillery your. Had a tasting at the end and couldn't leave without grabbing a bottle after trying it

House brand is Macallan 12. Had some Pappy for the first time about 6 months ago and that was awesome.

I need to branch out, so following this thread.
