Re: Scotch Drinkers
Glenfiddich 15 is hands down my <$60 go-to bottle. I always keep it around the house and it's cheap enough that you dont mind giving a good buddy a glass, either. Macallan's 25 is my favorite scotch I've ever tasted but at over $600/bottle, it better be good! To be fair, I personally have never paid for a bottle of that...right place/right time type of thing.
If you're in Cincinnati, look into going down to Nicholson's downtown. They let you get a scotch sampler with 1-2oz samples of 4-5 different scotches. It's a nice way to figure out what you like. Some scotch flavors are enhanced with ice/water added and some taste A LOT worse. I almost always drink my scotch neat (no ice/water).
FWIW, I've been trying Scotch regularly for years and absolutely despise the taste of Glenlivet 12.
