    Drinking the Johnnie Walker Double Black tonight gents. I like it. It's not anything special but it's fairly smooth with an ice cube and complex enough to hold my interest. Would I buy it? No.

    I've also had quite a bit of excellent wine though so I may be slightly off in my assessment. I also had catered crepes and the chick making the crepes was so hot. I don't know why I didn't hit on her.

    Interesting - I was drinking the same thing (Double Black). I agree - it's good, and for the price, it's very good. It has a strong oak/wood taste, but I like it. Me an a buddy finished a 1/5th, and it is something I would to again - no regrets, good stuff.

    I think I'm gonna start getting into scotch, anyone have a solid "starter" scotch? Been reading on a few Whisky + Scotch Enthusiast sites, Glenmorangie 10 Year, Glenfiddich 12 + 15, Glenlivet 12

    The best first scotch is the one that tasted good to you. There is always that moment where it 'clicks.' Happened to me with several things. Wine and now scotch and more recently cigars.

    So I'm trying the Double Black again. It's tasty and I definitely like it. It has this sweet and sort of smoky character to it.

    I'm realizing I prefer a more 'peaty' Scotch though. The Double Black is interesting and offers a good amount of taste it just lacks complexity to keep me interested. I'm 50/50 on whether I would buy it. That said, it's a fine Scotch.

    Love a good cigar (especially on the golf course or in a hot tub), but that unfortunately requires good weather and its only been 50*+ 2-3 days so far on the East Coast. Hoping that with the end of March we start seeing more "spring" weather

    Picked up the Glenmorangie 10

    I'm interested to hear @kev335i & @nafoo 's thoughts on the Balvenie. Spoke with a few guys at the liquor store I shop at they all praised the Glenmorangie & Balvenie for the quality of scotch vs what you're paying. Mentioned Oban and they said it is a very good scotch, but it is currently priced at $90 a bottle with expected increase in pricing because of importation/supply issues.

    balvenie double wood or caribbean cask are the ones ive had. Both very good indeed. Im in the UK double wood is around 36 and caribbean cask is around 41 so sounds about right on the price ish. Got a few others to try winging thier way too me! What balvenie are you looking at getting?

    Putting together a bachelor party and hiring a "master of whiskey" for a private sampling at one part of the evening. Good cigars, the worlds best whiskeys and a group of rat pack impersonators from a show in Vegas. Will be taking photos and notes to share with you guys here about the different drinks.

    Thanks bud, will definitely share what I learn for the other cigar aficionados as well.
    Went to a friends cliche bachelor party last weekend.

    Oh thumbs up for sure. I would say its well worth trying.
    I have a Dalmore 15 and knockando 1997 on their way to me if anyone has any experience of them? From what I know of them already they should be nice however its about two weeks before they arrive :-(

    Have a good selection of Cuban's in stock too but maybe that's a whole new thread on its own!!!

    I love Balvenie 15 and it's cheaper than Oban Distillers Edition (15) by about $20/bottle. The increasing in pricing is going to make it not worth it to me, though.

    Bought my good buddy a Glenmorangie 18 for Christmas. It was very good, but cost about $90. I'll stick with the Balvenie 15 as my go to since it's only about $75 a bottle when you buy a case...

    Picked up the Ardbeg 10. Very nice and great Islay style. Like it more than the Laphroaig 10 but not as much as the Big Peat. It is smoother than the Laphroaig but lacks the Big Peat punch.

    The Ardbeg is so smooth you can drink it neat. It's better that way actually.
