    Not a scotch drinker, but a new Canadian record for a price paid for a single bottle of scotch @ $52,000 - link.

    My buddy loves the doublewood also.

    Recently ive been enjoying the Balblair 1995 Vintage... its great.

    Not a huge smoke/peat guy here, so that cuts out most Islays. (Bowmore, Laphroaig, etc)

    Bruichladdich 1993 is good though.

    and I enjoy my Irish Whisky's quite a bit
    - Writer's Tears
    - Bushmills 10yr

    I think i have about 18-20 Scotch's right now.

    My liquor cabinet has a bottle of Bowmore 12yr & Lagavulin 16yr in it. Both are most excellent scotches



    On a side note, having an Oreo cookie while sipping on a scotch in the evening is amazing.

    I love Laphroaig for a peaty / Islay whisky.

    Oban or Talisker for a slightly less peaty flavour that still has some smokey bite. I'm biased on these two after checking out their distilleries though...something about having been there makes it taste better to me!

    Still haven't found a favourite lowlands whisky. Tried loads and enjoy them all, but I tend to reach for the Speyside / Islay malts first.

    My favourites that I have on the go right now:



    Dalmore Gran Reserve is my current #1 pick, and Glenmorangie wins best bang for the buck.

    Have to agree with Glenmorangie being a good choice. Tried the Finealta the other day and it might be my favourite so far:

    It is a limited run but I'm not sure how hard it is to get ahold of.

    Speaking of which, my buddy just picked up some Glenfiddich 18 for $59 at Seatac, tax/duty free. Thats better than even the cheapest places I can find to order online. Gonna grab some next time I fly

    Agreed one of my favorites!

    Also like anything distilled by Oban.

    For the price, Teacher's isn't bad. Probably my go-to Scotch, when I am not drinking Canadian Rye.



    Not a fan of the sweeter Speyside's.
