JMO, but scotches are very similar to wines, ie what you pair them with can make a huge difference in their enjoyment.

An excellent point! I’ll take mine paired with a stalk on an old hill stag please!

I am a huge Laphroaig fan! You'll probably like Ardbeg as well...

Bowmore is a nice "every day" alternative and less peated.
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.

@Red Leg
Don't worry.
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!
Glenfiddich 15 is my favorite. You can spend more, but the taste and quality all come together here.
Along with a good cigar, heaven.

I like a Deveron 18 year, when I can find it.

south africa and zimbabwe.alaska and several lower 48 states.
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!
a bottle of cab a day for the last 50 years has kept me alive and going through this day,my 81st birthday.

I bought some bullets from Rimshot and he is good to trade with!
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!
