I'm celebrating a new job that's going very well, and I just got paid (first paid acting job ever). I want to buy myself a really nice bottle of scotch. My favorites so far are Talisker and Lagavulin, but I kind of want to try something new. Anybody else have any favorites?

Ooh! Peaty. Bold. I like it when one sip lasts five minutes.

Then you want this one: http://www.beerliquors.com/buy/liquors/laphroaig.htm

Laphroaig is the most bold of Scotch Whiskeys. Definately an acquired taste.

My personal favorites are Macallan 12 year and Glenmorangie 10 year. Both are much more mild and smooth as silk.

Thanks for the info. Both the ten and fifteen are in my price range. I'm about to go shopping. I'll let you know how it goes.

I also enjoy the Macallan. Ever tried Balvene?

My current favourite is Highland Park. Distilled on the island of Orkney. It's very smooth and easy-drinking so be careful!

One of these days I'll be able to afford a bottle of Dallas Dhu 21 y.o.

I'll second and third Macallan 12. I get that whenever SWMBO and I are out to dinner instead of dessert.

It's actually just a low budget indie movie that's being filmed here in town. The story is pretty wild, and I like it a lot. It should be making the film fest circuit around Feb., March. The working title is "A Ripple In The World".

I was unable to locate a bottle of 15 y.o. Laphroaig, so I stuck to my current favorite, the Talisker 10.

My goal is to one day buy a bottle of scotch older than I am, but that gets harder and more expensive every year. If I don't do it by the time I'm 30, I'm SOL.
