    Scotch is my preferred whiskey. Single malt is my preferred scotch. Since single malt is so $$$$, DeWars is my go to, most of the time. I do treat myself with a single on occasion though.;+

    When it's time for a good single malt, I turn to Glen Morangie Port Finished - mmmm good stuff.

    I'm more of a burbon guy. I love Booker's, but when it's time to drink scotch, it's Laphroaig for me.

    I don't drink very often, so I buy The Glenlivet and stick with it.

    The last 4-5 yrs I've grown to appreciate Scotch, especially The MacAllan (regular and MMMMMM Cask Strength). The CSM is positively TASTY, although kinda harsh and burn-y for folks who don't appreciate the harder liquors.

    The standard Glenlivet is great for the price; I also have a bottle of 12-yr Chivas that was purchased in the 60s...mellow beyond compare.

    However, I recently bought a *very* highly recommended 10-yr Ardbeg....BARF! Strangely, I could hardly stand the smell, and the taste was like Pine-Sol. WAY too peaty and lemony; I actually gulped Cask MacAllan to wash that crap down. The only scotch worse than that I've tasted was an inky black travesty called Loch Dhu--think WELL used 30-weight engine oil, with a hint of bong water, with more peat than a friggin' nursery.

    Anyone here local (DFW TX) care to take this Ardbeg (1 oz. missing) off my hands? I'll trade for any good single barrel bourbon or scotch ;f

    Glen Garioch 10 yr is what I been drinking lately - but Glenmorangie 10 year or better is still my favorite.

    I enjoyed a single malt scotch the other night at a birthday party fo my wife. She drank wine and I drank ...... Sheep Dip! I thought the bottle was a joke, but that is the name of the distillery. 8 years old. Not too bad.

    In response to your question..... Glenlivet 18 years old.

    Glen Morangie single malt.
    This is aged in old port wine barrels.
    It imparsts an ever so slight finsh of port, with just a tinge of port color.
    Some of the smoothest scotch I've ever tasted.

    i never did throw in my two cents. . . i'm still somewhat new to the singlemalt game, but my top two right now are:

    highland park 12yr and lagavulin 16yr

    i like these two neat. i also enjoy dewars special reserve as a good blend.

    think i'll go have a pour. . .
