Drinking is a sport

I figured many of you are professional drinkers, judging by some of your posts.

What is your opinion on a good single malt that won't break the bank? What about blended scotch, like Johnny Walker? Black? Red?

Due to time constraints, please do not PM me if your question can be resolved or answered on the forum.

Need help?
1) Stop changing things. No new indicators, charts, or methods. Be consistent with what is in front of you first.
2) Start a journal and post to it daily with the trades you made to show your strengths and weaknesses.
3) Set goals for yourself to reach daily. Make them about how you trade, not how much money you make.
4) Accept responsibility for your actions. Stop looking elsewhere to explain away poor performance.
5) Where to start as a trader? Watch this webinar and read this thread for hundreds of questions and answers.

Count me in on the single malt team. Recommending single malts is really difficult, as a light Speyside and an Islay have absolutely nothing in common. Personally I favour the heavily peated ones like Arbeg, some Bruichlaich and Bunnahabhain, always with a drop of water, no ice.

I see we're on the same page here. Though I often prefer the somewhat younger, stronger ones, but the older Laphroig are certainly very drinkable in deed!

I also replace the cigar with good chocolate, instead of water did you try some fresh snow, like peaty taste whiskies

It really depends on your personal tastes...while I recognize the very popular Islay distilleries as making great whisky, I can't drink it myself. I don't really appreciate a lot of peat, seaweed, iodine, etc. so I tend to go for Highlands or Speyside malts. I highly recommend Highland Park, Macallan, BenRiach, and Cragganmore.

Also a nice, though somewhat subjective, chart I found on the internets the other day might help you:

I order a single malt every once in a while but I never remember the names.
They usually start with an 'M' lol
12+ years, peaty, and neat.
