    Their master distiller is actually named Jim Beveridge? That's pretty unbelievable. Imagine all the puns/jokes about that in his household.

    I've gotten much more into whiskey in the last year or two, though I'm much more of a bourbon drinker than a scotch drinker.

    I've found that the more expensive it is, the more I tend not to like it. Any theories on that, Mattola? I don't drink the really cheap shit, but a bottle of Maker's or similar and I'm set.

    My bottle of Glenlivet 14 got ruined when the cork snapped in two and fell into the bottle... :tsk:

    So I'm relegated to bourbon for the time being...

    I had a Glenmorangie 18 year a little while back that was quite tasty. Glenlevit 12 is usually my go to.

    While it's not scotch, I'm currently working on a bottle of Jameson's 12 year special reserve.

    Glenlivet actually has a cool and VERY well done history video that's only like 2 and a half minutes long. It's worth a look.

    Hmm interesting I think when you are getting into it at the start it becomes an acquired taste.. So when you get into more expensive ones you may not know what you are wanting to taste and may not like it as the flavour holds more... I would start out drinking 12 yr olds it's the best value and their are so many that are so good

    Bowmore 12
    Macallans 12 (the best 12)
    Glenfiddach 12 (heck most or all of the Glens at 12)

    Are a few examples of some you can try more of then work your way up. I recommend when you find one you like study that taste and read the bottle to see what you are tasting you yen will recognize more and maybe as you go higher you'll see the difference

    I had picked out the Grangestone 18, but I still had some Glenlivet left, so I held off. That night, the cork broke.

    Balls.

    Costco usually has decent prices on Scotch here - I've picked up bottles of Laphroaig 16 on multiple occasions for about $55 a bottle - open it up in an enclosed room, wait 5 minutes and then soak in the awesome aroma.

    A good scotch is like a good woman. You need to take your time, admire its beauty and aroma before savoring its exquisite taste.

    /Also, scotch doesn't get mad when you come home with scotch on your breath.

    Went to a private tasting of Duncan Taylor's Black Bull 40 year old on the weekend.

    It's actually a blend of all these casks of unused whiskeys that got misplaced. The "blend" is made of up of malts like Macallan, Glenlivet, Glenfarclas (I think) among others from the 60s and early 70s. They were blended and sold as Black Bull 40 year old (all the whiskeys were at least 40 years old). Cool story how it all came to be and a very tasty whiskey.
