No Americans?

Mike

I am afraid they cannot compete, except via the price... Scottish Single Malt Whisky is superior. I just had a glass of Glenlivet this evening. That is why I feel compelled to respond here. I also drink - I am talking about a few bottles per year, not per day - Jura, Laphroaig, Glenmorangie, Macallan and - with its special taste of peat - Tallisker.

I do not touch any blended Scotch Whisky such as Johnny Walker or Dimple, not talking about such awful stuff as Jim Beam or Seagram's. The only viable alternative to Scotch Single Malt Whisky would be Irish Whiskey, such Bushmills or Tullamore Dew. It is not in the same league as Scotch Malt Whisky, but it is better than blended Scotch.

Here are a few useful links .....

Whisky Drinker
The Scotch Malt Whisky Society
Whisky Magazine ~ Latest News
The Whisky Wire: Whisky News

Keypoints of Scottish Economy: Whisky supports about 41,000 jobs, adds about $ 3 billion to the balance of trade and is one of the UK's top five manufacturing export earners.

I will try to expand my horizons.

But I am not a big drinker, so I was leaning towards the blended like Johnny Walker Double Black or etc. For the Americans out there, who would like to suggest a sub-$50 bottle of juice that is sure to please?

Problem is, I am pretty certain those are more than I want to spend

If anyone knows of a good site to compare "street" prices, let me know. I can't tell just by looking at the name so well..

Personally, I prefer Jack Daniels Single Barrel.

They'll even let you go to the distillary and pick out your own barrel.

This is an ordinary Scottish Single Malt Whisky, which you should be able to purchase around $ 40.

That is the one I would recommend to get used to the taste, before you graduate to Speyside and Highland Whisky.

I like a good manly beer like Guinness.

"The day I became a winning trader was the day it became boring. Daily losses no longer bother me and daily wins no longer excited me. Took years of pain and busting a few accounts before finally got my mind right. I survived the darkness within and now just chillax and let my black box do the work."
