OT - What scotch are you drinking?

I typically drink bourbon, but after having read several reviews of Lagavulin 16 (and being a sucker for Islays), I picked up a bottle.  WOW!  I'm blown away by it!  So peaty and smoky.  Goes perfectly with BBQ.  Anyway, how about you?  What are you all drinking?

    Famous Grouse, although I like my Jamesons better.

  • I do enjoy the smokiness of Lagavulin, but this is my "go to" scotch, and yeah, 16, 18, 21, all depends on my mood and cash in hand, but 12 suffices for my after work unwind lol

    Nice.  I've been meaning to pick up a bottle of the 18 for a while.  Next up I'm going to try Ardbeg Uigeadail.  Maybe I'll do the 18 after that.

    Right now, Glenfiddich and Glenmorangie 

    Speyside, Highland, and Islay for me.

    Besides this, you have no excuse for that blended stuff.

    There's a little squirt of musty Misty in every bottle.  Plus, it was only $9 at the truck stop.

    Love Laphroaig. The sadly discontinued 15 was the scotch that hooked me. Never tried the quarter cask but hear great things.

    Not drinking it now, have an open Glenlivet 18 here though. Sounds like a perfect after dinner drink tonight.

  • I had a bottle of Macallan 50 but I assumed it had expired so I poured it out...

    Chivas.  When I was younger I drank it cause I thought it was cool, and now I just like how it tastes.

    my all-time fav is Lagavulin Distiller's Edition. Lagavulin 16 is my regular scotch of choice. Others include Oban 18, and the Oban DE. Big fan of the Balvenie too - I have a bottle of  14yo Caribbean Cask waiting expectantly for me.

    the Ardberg Uigeadail is seriously peaty, if you like that sort of thing.

    Yep. If you took a forest, burned it to the soil, then ate whatever charred dirt remained, you'd have the flavor of Islay... And man do I love it!

    Lagavulin is punching my buttons these days.  Probably a good thing it is so bloody expensive!

    Edited: Ooops clearly didn't read the thread title. Thought this was the usual "what are you drinking now thread". My bad. No Scotch for me tonight. Just a few ice cold Traditional Yuengling Lagers. Enjoy your drink and egg on :-)

    None. Not now, not ever (again). I hate Scotch. Though I have to say, Misty is absolutely lovely!  :D
