    Wasn’t really a fan of that 4 roses, so far per the suggestions here the woodford reserve and the eagle rare are going to be mainstays in my kitchen..got more on the list to try..

    They take a little getting used to, but they keep the drink from breathing too much.

    Check the glasses that come with the GlenLivet gift pack I posted earlier. Great hybrid glass and has a good weight to them.

    Does that Speyburn taste like seaweed? There’s a single malt that does. Not sure if it’s that one.

    Some of those “authentic,” “real McCoy,” single malts made with peat are definitely an acquired taste......

    This one rocks.....

    Le Frog and Lagavulin I am a fan of. This Speyburn wholly took me by surprise

    The complex finish does not align to the aroma - LoL

    I've downed a few bottles of speyburn in my time lol. Not my favorite but a decent cheap single malt. Try Highland Park 12 yr...i don't know any scotch fan who doesn't like it. About 50$. Also balvenie double wood around the same price.

    geofish My pops has a bottle of that, i had a glass with him over Christmas...good stuff. Talisker is another excellent scotch with the ocean character which is more rounded than most peat bombs.

    Elijah Craig is pretty good, my pops favorite bourbon for mixed drinks. Not bad straight either, though a few years back it was 12yr now NAS (no age statement) so probably a tad younger whiskey in there
