An "odd" impulse buy that I picked up the other day as I walked the Isles of my local fine drinkables establishment.

I usually take a bit of time and some effort to convince myself from dumping a bunch of money on something like this. I usually stick to lower end priced stuff, usually 12 year range. But...I had a 100 dollar visa gift card from some business points I cashed in and figured what the hell, might as well grab it.

I have not had much from Glenmorangie, in fact I don't recall ever having anything of theirs, but this seemed like a nice entry point, firmly towards the top.

So I grabbed the box and figured I'd give it a go.

It's apparently a low(er) run and they had a single bottle that had been there about 6 months.

I'm well impressed(I usually find little value with higher priced scotchs, because there is so much that hits a good price to quality point I rarely can accept that paying 150 dollars for a bottle will get me much more than a quality product at half the price).

It's smooth with a nice light profile. Hints of fruit and vanilla with a nice smooth mild finish. It's very nice and honestly something I'd buy again(in the distant future) if the mood hits.

Very solid choice in the 18 year range. I'm going to miss it when the bottle is gone(that will probably be around monday
)

I assure you good sir, I in no way pretend.

I'm sure some do though, but for those of us that can't end the day "sober" it truly is "the water of life".

Love rum...
Love vodka...
Like whisky...
Tolerate bourbon.....

Scotch?.....
I've never eaten a shoe but I imagine the taste is similar...

And the only thing gin is good for is drain cleaner..

I've never understood that.

Scotch is just whisky from scotland, sure, it is "a bit" different from american whisky but they are very very similar.

Disappointed. I clicked on your thread not for the booze review (you know, my little "problem" in the past), but for your witty and sometimes slightly dirty commentary.

Instead I got a nicely written but actual scotch review. Bummed. Glad you enjoyed the scotch though.

All beer tastes similar too...

I think a lot of people have an odd view of scotch, maybe because of the naming difference and likely because of some odd uncle they had growing up that drank waste water that was for some reason in a bottle with the name scotch on it.

The reality is that it's all whisky and the only whisky in the world worth drinking comes from 2 places.

America and Scotland(named scotch), if you have low standards and a regional dislike of scotland you can choke down some irish "whisky".

I love scotch, but as usual, america has really excelled in it's ability to extract excellence when it comes to whisky.

I was shooting for PG-13 on this one.

Sorry, but have no fear, I'm still the dirty degenerate you've probably come to know and hate. I'm just taking it slow tonight.

Now that's a big fat lie.

My beer tastes like heaven and sunlight and love with a touch of honey.

Nothing tastes like it.

I love beer, LOVE IT.

But I stopped drinking......beer.....months ago.

It just didn't go well, so know I'm living a healthier and more sober life....drinking tons of whisky.

I've watched men pretend they don't like wine.

Men only like wine when a woman does, because they know the eventual outcome.

Personally, while I don't drink it often, I keep a well stocked wine rack for any woman foolish enough to enter my lair.......

Good. Pick it up a little if you don't mind; I have to go to bed soon.

Beer isn't right for you if you don't take the time to make it yourself.

Making whiskey for yourself would just be stupid, considering the time and money involved.

So it's better to just buy from the experts.

Well, now that you put me on the spot, I'm going to be all shy about it.

You've ruined any chance we had going here, might as well grab some fresh AA batteries from the drawer and head to bed early without me.

Kinda ironic.

I have a well stocked wine rack of my own vintages that I use to my advantage for the occasional male that wanders into our lair as well...

You must have some strange men wherever you are. I don't know any around here that would need to be fed any alcohol to get themselves into such a situation.

Me "lured" into a womans house.

"So, do you have anything to drink, whisky or anthing.."

Woman, laughs in an evil tone.

"No, but I have this wonderful selection of wine...."

Me: "No thanks, I'm not interested.....so where is the bedroom?"

Think of all the wine I save you women.
