LOL True.... you being a bartender and all I bet you have some crazy stories of ol' Whiskey in a bottle 

Haha, yeah I've got some regulars (& staff)  who aren't allowed to have whiskey in my bar. One of my doorman is only allowed certain Scotch whiskeys, he gets real fiery on Irish whiskey.

After finishing my PhD I was given a bottle of Macallan Sienna, a bottle of Lagavulin 8, and a bottle of  Glenmorangie 18

Lagavulin 8 Year Old - 200th Anniversary Edition

 

Glenmorangie 18 Year Old

 

I haven't had the Lagavulin yet but the Glenmorangie is pretty terrific.

I finally got my hands on some Pappy...was the 15.  Wowza that was some smooth bourbon.

I picked up that Lagavulin 8 last year. Still have about 3/4 left.  The 16 is probably the single malt I drink the most...you can tell it is younger but it still has that Lagavulin thing that makes it one of my faves.

Unpopular opinion but I find Scotch revolting. 

 

It’s like taking a magnificent Irish Whiskey and putting some dirt and peat in it. 

 

That being said, I confess my tastes are not sophisticated. Give me a delicious glass of Jameson and I’m a happy man.

I have yet to try Lagavulin...

 

I just bought Glenfiddich XX and Fire and Cane. I have the IPA.

That's what is awesome about scotch.

 

It's not that it tastes like your favorite thing in the world it's the fact that it's so unique and earthy.

I became a Whiskey man in Tokyo since Nikka and Suntory were everywhere and it was so smooth to me. Then I went to Thailand and bought Whiskey from a 12 year old who was helping her mom run the shop and it tasted like paint thinner. I drank it all though. Can't even remember the brand.
