    Greetings from Oakland CA

    Hello,

    I'm new! Obviously.

    I grew up drinking American whiskey and then a few years ago fell deeply in love with Scotch.

    My favorites currently are just about anything from:

    Aberlour
    GlenDronach
    The Dalmore
    Glen Garioch

    I'm always open to suggestions that fall within the taste ranges of those four and hope to add more favorites to my list.

    Welcome aboard Brent. I'm sure you can tell this Board is primarily about Straight Bourbon and Rye but you may find the discussion of Talisker in our Foreign Whisky section interesting as well.

    Haha, thanks folks!

    I still love bourbon and probably should have listed a few. We keep a really nice selection at work and are always looking for something new.

    Welcome to SB Brent!

    There's some of us here that like scotch too - we endure the razzing but it's all in good fun (mostly) ;-)

    We like it we just don't like to pay for it.
