I'm somewhat new to the world of Scotch...just bought a bottle of 12 year GlenLivet. What is the story on this bottle? I am a firm believer of drinking what you like, and not paying too much attention to what people say about it. Still, I am interested in hearing people's thoughts on this one.
The Glenlivet's Master Distiller, Alan Winchester, delivers some Scotch Wisdom.

Thanks Paul Iam trying to locate your recomendations.
Steven, all those Johnnie walkers are blended whiskies the ones I suggested are single malts and are more flavorful.
I tried a Johnny Walker Red Label and found it ok. It seems to leave a more pleasing after-taste than Bourbon.
Thanks Paul, I'll check our area for those brands. I have only seen Johnnie Walker Red, Blue, & Black labels. However, I wasn't paying close attention.
