Anyone drink single-malt Scotch? If so, what are your favorites? I need a new one or two to try.
When I started drinking Scotch, I was told that
1). Most "girls" don't like it and...
2). It's an acquired taste.
If found the first to be true, although I do have a few other girlfriends who like Scotch, most don't.
For me it was instant LOVE, no acquiring a taste.
I have been enjoying Bowmore Darkest, but am wondering about recommendations for new ones to try.
Ahhh...the sort of question I love! My personal favourites are the Islay single malts and Bowmore Darkest is also my favourite! I have been to Islay many times and first tried Darkest during a tour of the Bowmore distillery. Bunnahabhain is beautiful also, as is Bruichladdich. I have toured those distilleries also.
If you like the peatier single malts, you should try one from the South of the island. Laphroaig is the best known one and also the best tasting in my opinion.
The Isle of Jura neighbours Islay and has only one distillery. It's whisky is beautiful, however, and if you like Bowmore Darkest you should like Isle of Jura.
I really could go on and on and on but I hope I have given you some ideas to be going on with.
Do you like smokiness? Do you love that peat smell and taste? Then Oban, Langavulin or LaPhroaig are for you.
If like me, you like a lighter taste, than the Speyside malts are the ones to to try, The Macallan, Glenfiddich, Glenleviet.
definitely single malt, no mix, water back (on the side) - Glenlivet, Glenfiddich
