      I had Bowmore 12 & it was good. I’ll certainly give 18y a try. Thanks for sharing.

      A sip of Bowmore 18 is like a journey to the heart of Scotland.

    None of those. Only go for single cask too, and none from those big corporations. Family owned only.

    If you like Laphroaig and Lagavulin, try Ardberg An OA. Or any of the Ardbergs, but the an OA fits that flavor profile.

      I know you specifically asked for single malt, but if you like the smokier ones you should really try Johnny Walker double black. It's got a great peaty flavor and is super smooth. The best Johnny if you ask me, it's got more character than blue or platinum.

      I have had all the Johnny Walker labels & really liked double black. That’s one of the best blended scotch on the market.

    Many of you don’t seem to know the difference between single malts and blends. Furthermore, Johnny walker and the like are the Budweiser of scotch (blends no less).

      There are very good blends and very bad blends. There are very bad single malts. If you want to be a snobby asshole you can, if that's what makes you happy, you're the one missing out on life.

    Laphroaig 18 is expensive, but worth it. Caol Ila is my personal fave.
