I am also fond of Glenmorangie (the standard 10 years). Verdammt.

I'm 54 and have only been drinking Scotch for a year or so. Mostly a beer nut but now...too many carbs.
Anywho, loving Laphroig. A buddy is leaving in a few weeks to tour the joint. I'm jealous.
Standby drink if nothing else is available is Johnny Black.

After drinking nothing but Scotch for many years I am now finding an appreciation for fine Bourbons.

Macallans and Glenfiddich under $100.

Foo (except for the Lagavulin 16 yr.). Single malt Under $50? Highland Park 12yr.. Best all-rounder in the world. Neither Speyside, Highlands or Islay, but from the island of Orkney - the northernmost scotch distillery in Scotland.
I also recommend the Highland Park.

My favorites under $100 are the Balvenie Doublewood, the Macallan 12yr. , Lagavulin and the Highland Park.

I've grown to like Suntori blended whisky a lot. Admittedly off-topic as it is neither single malt nor Scotch. It's made like Scotch but the Japanese habit of taking someone else's idea and refining it seems to extend to adult beverages.

Suntori's single malt product which still isn't Scotch tends to migrate north of 100.00 but having a serviceable blend takes some of the sting out.

Suppose I can well recommend my favourite, that being the single malt Dalwhinnie 15.
I remember the Dalwhinnie as being nice and smooth but it's been a long time since I've had any. Alabama isn't the best place to find single malt Scotch; luckily, Tennessee is just a quick trip North.

It wasn't so long ago that Tennessee was home to just two whiskyes; Jack Daniels and George Dickel. Today, there are over 40 distilleries going with a very nice one, Pritchards, being in one of my favorite areas to go cycling.

These microbreweries and distilleries are the microbrands of the alcohol world. Some are cheap and cheesy, some are SOOO good, and others are just "meh". But the journey through it all can still be fun.
