    Yeah that's what I figured. Some people have no appreciation for subtler malts. I once saw a local store owner talk a couple of college guys with Christmas money and no knowledge of or experience with scotch who were looking for something special into an Octomore 3.1. Because that's a good first malt.

    IMO the 18 year blows away the Companta. The 18 is a damn near perfect unpeated, highland dram. The Companta is a like a dryer Quinta Ruban. It's a darn fine drink, but 18 is really good.

    The dumbass college kids should have known that the best use for the money would have been a case of Fireball.

    I'm fairly certain I would never spend $190+ on a bottle of anything without being pretty damn certain I would enjoy its contents.

    I've never bought a bottle, but I was relatively impressed with its viscosity the one time I had it. At that price point, I'd go with Strathisla 12. There's new packaging, however, that I have heard corresponds to an inferior product, so get the old one in the rectangular bottle.

    Maybe the clerk's real intent was to steer them toward Bourbon.

    Life is too short to drink bad bourbon and smoke bad cigars.
