My buddy got me a pretty nice bottle of scotch... gotta compliment the smoothness and taste.
Any other scotch fans?
Not a fan of it neat, but I loves me some Dewars-and-soda.

Are you a pure scotch drinker, or are you a blend drinker?
Name your taste.
For me, I'm a huge Johnnie Walker Blue fan, but also appreciate the Green and Gold varieties.
I also definitely enjoy Macallan, preferably 18 year or older, and particularly with Highland water (the choice way to serve @ Nicholson's across from the Aronoff)
Every now and then, I'll sip some Talisker, and ironically the 10 year isn't bad, but obviously the older the better, as with most scotches.
So yeah, that's a little sampling of the scotch I consume on a semi-regular basis.
I brought back bottles of Mortlach and Longmorn-Glenlivet from Scotland, both of which are great scotches that you can't buy stateside. I enjoy nearly all Speyside single malts, and I tend to stay away from the Islays and peatier scotches (Oban, Talisker, etc.). I have had a few cask-strength scotches (~60% alcohol), and I can't say I enjoyed them much. I guess I don't have the intestinal fortitude to handle those spirits.
For Macallan lovers, the distillery replicates a vintage 1930s Macallan that is out of this world (500mL bottle). You should be able to get it here in the states.
it's a 12 year old Dalmore.
I'm a relative noob when it comes to scotches... he said this was a good one to start out with.
He told me he'd kick my ass if I drank it any way other than neat! LOL
uisge beatha. Single malts. One of the joys of being alive. Currently have Balvenie 12 yr and 15 yr and Lagavulin in the liquor cabinet.
Scotch! Scotch! Scotch! I love Scotch. It tastes so good. Into my belly.
Johnnie Walker Red and Blue.
The Rally Onion wants 150 fans before Opening Day.
We enjoy J&B. I wouldn't mind an aged scotch, but the husband is cheap, and the longest a new bottle has aged in this house, is a month:all_cohol :
....Pabst Blue Ribbon!
