Figured I'd drop in here and see if anyone has a tip or two. Going to pull the trigger on a new scotch soon and have narrowed it down to two, Highland Park 12 year, and the Aberlour 12 year (tried both at an event this weekend). I lean towards the Highland Park, but I fear that the sea mist taste that I picked up on may become off-putting somewhere down the line. The Aberlour came off as more appealing and versatile to me (maybe generic). I will likely add both to the cabinet, but not sure which to add first.
