My goal - a bottle of each of the best value of all spirits.
Dewar's 12 Yearold Special Reserve - thought it was great. But not mindblowing.
Then bought Dalmore 12 Year Single Malt - also I thought it was great - but not mindblowing.
Yesterday bought Highland Park 12 Year Single Malt - MINDBLOWING! For $40, it in my opinion blows away Dalmore.
Which makes me sad. I'm not a rich guy. But I only want to serve my guests excellent whiskey.
Bourbon- I found Buffalo Trace and Eagle Rare and BT to me is a better value.
Anways...those are my thoughts. Im' saddened because I'm afaid I'll taste another scotch and it will blow me away.
