Did you wonder how you could try about all the Scotch's produced? At only a fraction of the cost? Here's my recommendation---First try all the classic malts-Dalwhinnie 15 YO, Lagavulin 16 YO, Oban, Cragganmore 12 YO, Talisker 10 YO and last but not least Glenkinchie 10 YO. Then try Ardbeg 17 YO, then McCallans, Balvene, Doublewood, Portwood and a whole host of others. These are not going to cost you a fortune==buy minatures that way you can narrow it down to what you like before you invest a lot of money on scotch you probably won't like. Like I have stated before on this link as far as I am concerned you get away from McCallan, Balvene or Abelour there is not much left that I like, and if you go with a blend it is hard to beat Ballentines for a mixer, and I hate to keep repeating myself, but I will, make sure that it is Schweppes Ginger Ale
that you use to mix them with. That's the way they do it in Scotland and England, providing they don't use water. That is the way they do it when they are by themselves.
