The 12-year-old Balvenie is about to get kicked, any suggestions on what I should replace it with? The really excellent stuff is wasted on me, but the cheap stuff will just sit there. I feel like the $40-$60 range is good enough to enjoy and appropriately priced for something that will last 3-4 months.

This was going to be a much longer, whinier preachier post about how I’ve matured over the years and etc., but whatever.

I AM EVILSONIC. I NOW DRINK A RESPONSIBLE AMOUNT OF CRAFT AND/OR LOCAL BEERS MOST NIGHTS. I LIKE WINE WITH DINNER, BUT I GET THE CHEAP STUFF BECAUSE IT ALL TASTES GOOD IF YOU LET IT BREATH. IT’S NICE TO HAVE A GLASS OF SCOTCH ONCE IN A WHILE, BUT JUST ONE BECAUSE I HAVE TO GET UP IN THE MORNING.

If you're drinking almost every night, you should probably take it to the Drunk thread or maybe start an AA thread.

I don’t drink to get drunk anymore so it didn’t seem fitting to go Drunk thread. I also don’t think an AA thread is a good place to look for Scotch suggestions.

Nah you're right.

Go to AA MEETINGS for scotch suggestions.

You don't see me going to ice cream socials and not eating ice cream and socializing.

Probably a good place to find people willing to unload their Scotch.

There’s an area where I have an interest to learn more, but I feel like I’d need to invest a fair amount in a wide variety of liquors and ecroutrements to get started.

ooh!

 

My favorite scotch is Talisker 10 year.  It's on the smokey/peaty side.  I lovvvve it!  Watch out though, there are a ton of different Taliskers out there now that aren't as good.  Avoid all the Talisker Storm and Talisker 57 North or whatever.  Just get plain 10 year.

 

Another good one is Bunnahabhain 12 year.  It's really smooth and drinkable for a scotch.

What if I bought you a Talisker Storm for Christmas?   I like the Bunnahabhain but it can be so so smokey that i REALLY need to be in the right mood to drink it.

In responsible drinking news I stopped drinking high proof (100+) bourbon a few weeks ago and it's made a bigger difference than I expected. I never 'accidentally' get too wrecked or hungover anymore

I'd drink it!  It's good.  It's just no Talisker 10 year.

 

Maybe I'm weird but I consider Bunnahabhain one of the least smokey scotches.  But some of the other dags do consider it smokey.
