Good single malt Islay like Laphroaig and a good cigar make my day.

I just had some Macallan's 15yr with a short Monte Cirsto. Very good indeed.

I enjoy a wide variety of scotch, but my favorite has got to be Macallan. The 12 year old is great, the 18 sublime. I find the 21 year old to be almost TOO smooth, in that some of the complexities that make scotch so enjoyable have almost faded away. It's just as well, as I certainly can't afford it anyhow!

+1 on the cigar, they are a natural companion to a good scotch. Still, I find I'm smoking fewer and fewer...not as much opportunity these days.

I love the peaty smokey flavor of Islay scotches, but a 15 year old MacCallan is mighty tasty too.

Another awesome favorite is Isle of Jura Superstition. Very nice and highly recommended.

100% agree. But I find it hard to enjoy a good smoke with my little ones running around.

My fav scotch so far is Glenfiddich 12yr. To me, it is ole faithful. The Speyburn 10yr is the best bang for your buck. Unless, you want a blend like JWB.

IMHO,
Russ

That sounds real nice. I hope I can get my hands on a bottle some day.

I'm going to pick up a bottle of Aberlour Abundah next week. Any thoughts?

I've had Aberlour before. It was tasty. I need to find my Scotch collection picture and post it. It was a good one.
