    The one that's in my hand at the moment! At a distillery in Scotland, I was asked "What's your favorite dram?" I came up with that answer and have used it ever since. Seriously they're all good, but I always say there's no such thing as bad whisky, only over priced whisky. I came up with that order to have the lighter floral Irish first, followed by the spicy fruitiness of the Nadurra, and ending with the smoky, peaty, fruity highland. As to supper, my wife got the recipe from one of her game cookbooks and modified it after the first try (common for her). It was too sweet the first time. I think she cut the amount of Kaluha and added more bourbon. It's still a sweet dish, that's why we drink port wine with it. I don't know how it would be with beef, except for an occasional steak, we rarely eat any.

    Hitting the Ardberg again and again. Just magnificent! It's truly rare that I only drink from one bottle all evening. I am truly smitten!

    Ballentine's Finest. This new bottling is an outstanding everyday blend. I would rather sip this than many much more expensive single malt Speysides or Highlands.

    I don't know about taking it over single malts, but I prefer it to other blends like Teacher's and Grant's. Nice balance between grain, sherry, and smoke.
