Thanks for pointing to this thread!

 

I've recently gotten myself a bottle of Glenmorangie 18 and what a bottle!  Each pour is such an adventure, I am refraining from over indulging :)  Almost feel guilty for not pouring consecutive drinks!

In other news, my Johnny Walker Double Black is over :(  That is one helluva whiskey!

 

See my posted impressions of JW Double Black here if anyone is interested: http://boards.vinylcollective.com/topic/17682-post-your-set-up-thread/?p=1716751

I've tried the 12 but not the 18.  It sounds amazing.

I haven't tried the 12 myself.  What did you think of it?  This 18 year old is definitely a discovery for me. 

I'm probably going to try out Dewars 12 year old next followed by the Highland 18.

The 12 is good but not good enough (for me) for the price tag.  For the same $$ I would grab a bottle of Highland Park or Laphroig.

If you guys are ever in or around Orange County, the whiskey bar I work at would be a good spot to check out.

 

Hopscotch Tavern in downtown Fullerton.

 

When anyone asks me for scotch recommendations, if they like smokey I always recommend Caol Islay. You'll smell the peat and smoke before it even hits the table.

If they like a lighter smoother scotch I always recommend Auchentoshan 12. It's a really nice lowland Scotch distilled near Glasgow.
