    Gary, I'm with you on the French Oak Reserve-- a comparitive steal at under $50. So is the Glendronach 12 with the red label, lightly sherried and simply delicious.

It is far better than the standard 12 year old version. No more $100 and $200 purchases for something too old, too peaty (although I know some people like that), too sherried, or too ordinary. And bourbon has its no-go analogues.

    I like the 'Livet 15 better than the 18..much better. Very good single malt.

    For every Macallan-like hike, something else swoops in to save the day. For me it is the Bunnahabhain 12. Since they non-chill filtered and slightly upped the proof, it's surpassed most other Scotches. And oh, the kept the price at $50.

    I have not had the Glenlivet 15yo french oak...but like many, I am a big fan of the Nadurra Cask Strength.
