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.

Comment by Steven Fields on December 17, 2013 at 10:45am

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.
