    Re: Which Bottle Have You Laid To Rest?

    Polishing off an L6 bottle of Lagavulin.

    I'm going to get my hands on that Bere Barley. I can't resist something new and different.

    Even though I don't drink a lot of scotch I am trying to broaden my horizons and the new and unusual always appeal to me. So I was considering trying to find that one. Would be curious to hear what you think of it if you find it!
    That yella whiskey runnin' down my throat like honey dew vine water and I took another slash…

    Re: Which Bottle Have You Laid To Rest?

    Polished off The Speyside 12 this fine day, my first and only bottle of scotch. Enjoyed it more and more over the last few years since I opened it. I seem to recall drinking some scotch years ago that had too much peat for my taste, but this seems nearly free of it. Does anyone have a suggestion for another mellow, malty Scotch? Should I stick to the Speyside region? Glenfiddich? The Glenlivet? Trader Joe's Speyside 18yr?

    Dohidied - You will get wide variety of answers to your question - but imo if you just want some nice, mellow, malty scotch, I enjoy Glengoyne 10 or Aberfeldy 12. They won't break the bank ($39ish) but are just nice, basic, tasty single malts. (No peat, no smoke, no sherry, etc.) And if you can find Tomatin 12 - it's also very nice and even less expensive ($29ish).

    I always enjoy Johnnie Walker Black as well - a 12 yr old blend but a tad less expensive and more available than the other three...

    Hard to go too far wrong with any of these.

    Thanks for the suggestions, Wall Eye. I'll be on the lookout for those. Looks like my local BevMo has the Tomatin for $27. Nice!

    I strongly second the Tomatin 12, though part of my enthusiasm is that it's only $22 here.

    Springbank 12 Year Cask Strength. First bottle of a Single Malt I have purchased in over a year. I had been sticking to bourbon/rye for price reasons. This purchased reminded me why I like Springbank so much..and at 108 proof and $80 it was a relative bargain in the Single Malt world. I am getting another soon. Oh and I know someone will kill me for this.but I was out of bourbon while grilling on a hot and humid Houston day (that could be anytime from April through October!) so I tried this with 2 cubes of ice. It was refreshing and delicious!

    Was kinda wondering that myself. There is an empty bottle thread in the General Bourbon section after all!
