    Lol, I was a bit fearful before the first sip myself. But it's pretty damned good

My money is on a distillery in the Lowlands.
    Ahhh, thanks for the knowledge! Mine is a Speyside, actually.

    Got 2 I've been meaning to try lined up for Xmas, I'll post them when I crack them open.

    That is like saying a BJ from Roseanne Barr is equal to a BJ from Jessica Biel.

    You may have gotten just as drunk but you didn't enjoy the same quality of flavor.

    You could also drink some varnish. There's a bit of a difference.

    There's nothing fundamentally wrong with a bottle of Beam - if that's your price point and flavor profile, it's a perfectly fine buy. But if you're looking for something beyond that, it's probably worth taking in some other type of bourbons

    My friend and I watch the Sunday night game outside on his patio drinking scotch and smoking cigars. It is my favorite time of the week. We've had Laphroaig quarter cask, Balvenie Doublewood, Glenfiddich 12, Glenmorangie Nector D'or, and The Glenlivet 18. We were not big fans of the very "peaty" Lophroaig. The Nector D'or and Glenlivet 18 were our favorites. We've been talking about sharing the cost of a bottle up to about $300, but we have no experience in that price range. Any suggestions?

    Stay a bit lower if you want and go for Glenmorangie Signet or Dalmore 18, ~$200. Those are next for me and I've never heard a bad word about either.

    Excellent recommendations. After some research, I was considering also Glenfarclas 25 Year Old. It's also under $200. While we are willing to spend up to $300, it seems to me that the selection in the $200 to $300 range really is no better than those 2/3 the price. I think you have to get into the $400+ range to see an appreciable difference from the under $200 labels.

    18 year old Talisker. Itís the peaty kind you don't like - not as harsh as a cask strength Laphroaig - but I emplore you to give it a chance. $150-ish a bottle and it's worth every penny.

    I was told they only make a limited run of this making it hard to come by. Bar in town has to get a bunch of their other book to acquire one. They sell it for $50 a shot!

    Cheers!

    good choice with Glenfarclas.

    You'd probably like Bunnahabhainn(pronounced Boon-Ahh-ha-van)

    also if you want something a bit less well know the Fettercairn or old fettercairn is a good shout....my cousin works at the distillery!

    and for a slightly different after dinner treat go for Stag's breath which is a whiskey liqueur that's a little less sticky than Drambuie or Glayva

    Nice! I like that better than the 20 or 23. Drink it slowly....you used to be able to find it for around $80. I'd say you'd be hard pressed to find it for under $200 if you can find it at all. Most likely more than that.
