Been trying to build up a little collection of Single Malts the last couple of years - currently have Lagovulin 16, Oban 14, Abelour 12, Balvenie Caribbean Cask, Caol Ila 12. I only really have Speyside and Islay ones so its cool to taste the obvious differences and try to learn each regions style etc.

For a while I was drinking the Evan Williams Bottle in Bond white label like every day. Very solid whiskey with a super low price.

Lately I have drinking much less, but still enjoy it in moderation. Made the unfortunate error of buying Johnny Walker Red Label a few months back. That is apparently infamous for being one of the worst Scotches around.

Some of my favorites are Old Grandad and Jameson. My whiskey experience is fairly basic as hell.

I live in Ireland and I'm fond of whiskey, but I'm also uncultured, so I'll drink pretty much anything.
Green Spot and Yellow Spot are particularly nice.
I should try more Scotch, bourbon and Rye whiskeys I gather.

I had the chance to try out a few Scotches I was curious about. Laguvalin 16, Oban 14, and Macallan 12.
Macallen 12 was my favorite of the three, which is good info for me to have as far as buying bottles goes. It seemed like the most straightforward Scotch to me of the three, but what do I know? Cheers.

Anyone keep a tasting journal? I have one for single malts with 127 entries at the moment. I went through a phase when I wasn't skating much where I got obsessed with scotch. A good chunk of the entries came from buying Drinks by the Dram from Master of Malt, where you can buy samples of whisky. I tried to taste one malt from every active distillery. Whisky tasting is pretty cool because it makes you more keen to the smell and taste of food and drinks.

My go to is Evan Williams black label. I can get a liter in my area for 16 bucks and it tastes like it should cost twice that in my opinion.
evan williams is also my go-to. the best kentucky straight for the best price. i also really like their bonded bourbon, the white label but that is a bit more rare of a find. ive had the four roses, the bulleit, the bufflalo trace, wild turkey, bookers, plenty of single barrels, blah blah blah. yeah its good but why pay $30-$40 when i can get just as tanked off a $12 evan williams bottle and with a comparable taste? jim beam is also really good too for a kentucky straight but its more expensive than evan williams and less abv.

No but thatís really cool you did that. Would be great to have your insights into various single malts.
