    You guys might think I'm nuts here, but does anyone else taste notes of malt in their smokes? My (very unrefined) palate frequently picks up malted notes, as in malted barley. This usually happens with maduros; not "naturals." Maybe it's just oak / woodiness, which seems to be a very common...

    When I say "best" I mean the best that I've had. I'm not a scotch drinker (well...I wasn't :D) and every time I tried one, It always tasted metallic and harsh. Never ever been able to enjoy a glass neat or on the rocks. Well, visiting my stepson and wife in Virginia last weekend, his neighbor...

    Single Malt Scotch What would you recommend for a beginning scotch single malt drinker. I dont want anything super strong. I have tried johnny walker black and dewars blended scotches and I hated the iodine flavor. I want something very smooth with lots of fruit notes, but most importantly...

    I enjoy a good Scotch now and then but have not had experience with very many different brands. Hoping maybe some of you more experienced Scotch lovers could point me in the direction of something new to try. My current favorite is Macallan 18yr and I also enjoy the 12yr sherry cask Macallan for...

    I am about to embark on the single malt journey and I am needing recommendations on where to start. Please nothing that is $200.00 a bottle. I have never tasted a single malt so I have no idea what to expect. Thanks for the help.

    I was just wondering if anybody could suggest a nice single malt scotch in the price range of 40-60 dollars. Can't afford the really good stuff, but would like to try out a nice smooth scotch in that price range. I am tired of american whiskey. Even single barrel jack isn't that good. Thanks.

    I finished up a bottle of Glenlivet 12, my first foray into the world of single malts. It went great with many cigars, and I'd be happy to buy another bottle, but I'm looking to branch out and try something different. Any recommendations for this relative newb would be appreciated, preferably...

    I went to the liquor store and ended up bullshitting with the guy for more time than I care to share :P I came home with a bottle of Cragganmore 12 year single malt scotch. Its the first "decent" bottle I've ever bought, other than some Chivas I had a while ago. Is there a proper way to store...

    I've been hearing around that there are people interested in Scotch, so I thought I'd put together a little list of stuff for people to try. This is by no means an all-inclusive list of good Single Malt Scotch Whiskeys to try, but it's a good starting point that provides good value and variety...

    This week was my birthday. I told my wife the last time we were in the LCBO store that if she ever wanted to get me something, to buy me a bottle of Glen Breton Rare Canadian Single Malt Whisky. I have been admiring this stuff for a couple of years but always had second thoughts when looking...
