I am fairly new to drinking single malt scotches and am having a lot of fun. My first bottle was the Glenlivet 12. It's decent, easy drinking, but not very complex. I then went to Highland Park 12 for more complexity. Indeed it is more complex, but I realize I am not into the smokey flavor that is has, and I never did drink much of the bottle because of the smoke/peat. I then got the Macallan 12...TASTY!!!! I love it.
So now what??? Help me pick my next scotch!
I am assuming Laphroig is a NO NO since it is described and medicinal and smokey.
I am considering:
- Glenmorangie 10 yr
- Balvenie Double Wood
- Macallan 18, big bucks
- Glenlivet 18
