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.

Post First Date Advice

I had a first date yesterday, it went really well (I think) but I'm not sure what to do next?Some background...I never had too much trouble with the ladies but I'm 32 now and this feels different to when I was in my mid-20's. Like I'm dealing with a woman rather than a girl.I've only just began dating again after a 4 year relationship so I'm a bit rusty.I met this lady online, she messaged me first in fact, we exchanged messages for a day and I asked her out for a drink. For the week in between…See More
