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.

The Glenlivet's Master Distiller,  Alan Winchester, delivers some Scotch Wisdom.

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.
