Did a search and didn't see one. Dont know if anybody has the interest in talking aboutit or sharing their favorites
Balvenie Caribbean Cask is one of mine. An incredibly smooth whiskey and the rum cask aging gives it a unique, sweet flavor

MadMarsha tried to start one in the Specialty Coffee thread
There might have been another years ago, but no reason not to have a new one

I don’t do spirits anymore but Laphroaig 10 was mine
Was?

I cant even get my wife to give me a kiss after having Laphroaig or Ardbeg

By no means am I a connoisseur, I just like the way Glenfiddich 12 tastes on ice while chillin' by the fire in the Texas Hill Country, with a cigar in hand.... Who am I kidding, I just like the way it tastes any day, any place....

I'll give the 18 a try next time!

Not the 18, the 15
And try it with bourbon rocks instead of ice

I rotate several bourbons on the shelf at home and I started an infinity bottle recently. Right now I have a bottle of Angel's Envy, Old Forester 86, Four Roses Small Batch and Heaven Hill BIB. I was surprised to find the Heaven Hill in Arizona as I had been told it's only sold in and near Kentucky. It might be the best bang for the buck whiskey I have ever drank, including the Eagle Rare which used to sell for $18 a bottle. People out here don't really touch it because it sits on the bottom shelf and looks cheap, but I usually talk someone into grabbing a bottle whenever I go because it's so cheap. The two stores I go to tell me they get a pallet of Pappy every other year around April, so I will be stopping by every day closer to that time of year.

For scotch I just have a couple bottles of Macallan (12 year Double Cask and Cask Strength). The Cask Strength might have the best nose of any alcohol ever. I just finished a bottle of Hamilton's Highland Single Malt that might be the best bang for the buck scotch I ever tasted. I hear good things about Macqueens 8 Year (blended), but I have yet to see it on the shelf. It's always sold out. My favorite scotch of all time was a bottle of Glenmorangie Nectar D'or my wife got me one year as a gift.

After all that, I have a bottle of Woodford Reserve Rye that I keep around to make Old Fashions. I have been thinking about just grabbing a bottle of Bullit or George Dickel Rye and pouring in simple syrup and bitters to have a bottle mixed and ready to pour.

I'm happy with glenlevit or glenfiddich 12 or (15 ifI'm feeling fancy). A macallan is nice now and again, but Ive tried some of the others a lot of aficionados tend to like such as Lophraig and they are too much for me.

Not really a fan of the blends, but Singapore Airlines pours Johnny walker blue label in first/suites so I drink that and the champagne like its going out of style. I can get drunk and pass out and drunk again 3 times before I hit Bangkok every year lol
