    My favorites so far:
    Balvenie 15 year Single barrel
    Macallan 18 year
    Macallan 12 year
    Glenmorangie 10 year

    I've had Glenlivet 12 year and Glenfiddich, but i wouldn't really buy those again...

    My favorites:

    Balvenie Portwood 21 - I like port, and good lord, this was AWESOME
    Aberlour a'Bunadh - cask strength, so damn good, reasonable at $60-70, too
    Edradour 10 - this would be my daily dram, if I could afford a $50/bottle daily dram. lol Lovely!

    Due to a crappy last 3 years, and accompanying tight funds, I recently decided to try bourbon. Buffalo Trace? Wow. It definitely satisfies my boozey scotch needs, for $20 a bottle, and it's very, very good. Bourbon is cool! Who knew?

    I'm surprised Glenmorangie 10 Year Old hasn't been mentioned more often. Definetly my favorite thus far.

    It has a really peat/smokey kind of flavor. I've got to be in the mood for it, usually I just stick to the Glenfiddich as my "regular" scotch.

    Also, any scotch drinker MUST pick up some of these: Amazon.com: Teroforma Whisky Stones: Kitchen & Dining awesome for keeping scotch somewhat cold without watering it down too much. Girlfriend got me some for Valentine's Day

This chilling of the drink is similar to what their main customer base is used to and retards the volatiles that inexperienced whisky drinkers would find unpleasant.

    Using ice or chilling your scotch is up to the consumer. When you buy a bottle, enjoy it however you are going to enjoy it the most. But cooling the drink with ice or any other method (especially those stupid fucking stones) retards the volatilization of the organic compounds and gives you less of the flavors and aromas you paid for. You can't argue with physics.

    Taste has nothing to due with pyhsics. Its subjective and your taste buds are yours and could care less about the science that takes place.
    To say Johnnie Walker isnt aimed at the whisky connossieur is narrow minded nonsense.
