    In-laws got me a bottle of 15 YO Macallan. Not generally a Highland scotch fan, but this is great. Better that the 18 YO. I would have preferred an 18 YO Talisker, but no one asked. :'( First world white people problems.

    Just added these two to my collection... Elmer T. Lee is the best bang-for-your-buck bourbon on the market IMO. So smooth.

    Scotchy scotch scotch

    Alot of scotch drinkers on here. I'm a fan of Tomotin, Aberlour and Glenfiddich. Worked in a liquor store and got to taste test alot, but those three, I liked.

    I've been meaning to try the Quinta Ruban. I've heard very good things about it.

    It's very good, has more of a bite than is typical for a Glenmorangie.

    Warfish, the Signet was amazing. Truly.

    Pretty good, as Jetworks mentioned it has a bit more of a bite, but that's just the port finish on it. Personally, I prefer the Lasanta but this is still excellent.

    Yea, but is it 1.75L?

    The Signet I got is in that neighborhood, no question. The Dalmore 18 isn't far behind either. I'm slumming with the rest of the swill, though.

    Mooched some 30yo from a friend, it was wonderful. The 18 (now called Reserve, iirc) is pretty damned good too.

    Should be receiving this bad boy soon. The single malt is pretty peaty so this one should be peated like a mofo.

    I find that 15 year olds are many times more enjoyable than 18 year olds.

    Is it OK to drink wine with bourbon? Ran out of beer for the boilermakers. Just home from work and the Knob Creek is about to get cracked.

    At the very least I hope you tried it so you can report back. Who knows, maybe they'll name a cocktail after you - which is probably the highest honor I can think of. Rob Roy and Tom Collins never truly made it until they bestowed on them their respective drinks.

    I would just like to say that I have been following this thread for about a year now. I was never much of a scotch drinker, however someone treated me to a glass of Johnny Walker Blue. Totally blew my mind, and thus exposed me to a whole new world. I am currently enjoying a bottole of Glenmorangie Quinto Ruban. I also have a bottle of Maccallan 15 y/o as well. I swear I go through this thrad just to drool over all the bottles.
