I appreciate the suggestions.
I've not tasted all of them, but it's not for lack of trying.
Been sippin' single malts from my Grandfathers knee.
Started somewhere around age 7 or so, loved it ever since.
Got into the Isla's in my 20's.
Scotch tasking club where I live has taught me much.
Bowmore, Ardbeg, Talisker, Bruichladdich, Kilchoman, Jura...etc.
Very fond of Caol Ila as well.
Probably 1 and 1a with Lagavulin.
You still have time to properly develop your palate.
And yes, Scotch with breakfast.
You can't drink all day if you don't start in the morning.
With a drop of Scottish blood running through my veins, I treat myself to a bottle of single malt every Christmas. This year's choice is Oban 14 year old, and I plan to have my first dram in front of the fire tonight, after a trip out to try for a roe. I'd be interested to hear what other AH members who enjoy a glass of whisky will be sampling over the festive season; slainte!
I use to drink nothing but single malts neat with a water back. As I have gotten older (lucky me to have made it this far!) I get heartburn from scotch. Bummer because I did enjoy it so! Now I prefer two glasses of a red blend wine nightly.
I mostly preferred the less smoky highland single malts except when I had a good heavy grilled fillet of elk, or venison, or antelope, or bear rump, or even (heaven forbid!) beef!
Greetings all! I've been a hunter for 50 years, but only now planning a trip to Africa. I was fortunate and successfully bid on a couple hunts for plains game in SA later this year and next. Also a rare Native Texas (5th generation) and USMC Vet. Hunt safe y'all!
