I have found Balvenie 14 - Caribbean Cask to be my go to drinking scotch currently.  I used to say I like my scotchs legal (18+) preferably old enough to drink it's self (21+).  But this is really a nice drinking Scotch.  I drink scotch neat.

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.

Thanks Paul Iam trying to locate your recomendations.

Comment by Paul Bissett on December 18, 2013 at 9:50am

Steven, all those Johnnie walkers are blended whiskies the ones I suggested are single malts and are more flavorful.

Comment by Steven Fields on December 18, 2013 at 9:33am

I tried a Johnny Walker Red Label and found it ok.  It seems to leave a more pleasing after-taste than Bourbon.
