    Anyone on here drink Scotch? Single malt is all I drink. Glenfiddich 18, or 16 yr. Anyone tried the 21 yr Glenfiddich?
    Have tried other Scottish regions, but Speyside is Fav. Love a good maduro cigar and a shot or two of 12 or 18 yr.
    How do you relax?

    A man after my own heart!

    Single malt man here myself. I am enjoying a bottle of Glenlivet 15 year as we speak. Pair it with a Fuente Hemingway, or anything by La Flor Dominicana and it is a good day!

    I typically drink 12-15 year myself. I am too cheap to go for anything much higher end than that except for a glass here or there.

    I had the absolute pleasure of tasting some The Macallan 25 year. HOLY CRAP was it AWESOME. I looked into getting a bottle. About $750 for a fifth. No thanks!

    I also enjoy some Glenfiddich 12-15 year.

    I am not a huge fan of the blended scotch myself. Johnnie Walker Blue Label was in my hotel in the executive level. Not bad, but I'd still like the single malt better.

    I like it a little chilled and with a splash. I picked up some whiskey stones that help chilling it without diluting the flavor.

    Don't drink much liquor. More of a beer person. IPA's are my favorite. Been drinking Abita's Jockamo lately. Don't really care for stuff like bud lite, too plain for me. Imo, micro breweries make better beer.

    I'm a beer guy mostly too but I do love tequila. Most are probably more into the reposado or anejo but I tend to like the silvers better. I was just at a restaurant that looked like it had a full bar but upon a closer look I realized every bottle was tequila! Most were $10-$12 per shot and I'm sorry to say my wallet was much lighter after that night! :biggrin:

    Just picked up a bottle of Glenlivet 18, it is very smooth, light, long Finnish with a hint of fruit, a touch of maple, oak. Very balanced. I recommend trying a dram or two with your fav cigar like an Olivia V. The day will be brighter.

    Bourbon distiller myself. I am trying to acquire a palate for Scotch. Had a Cragganmore 12 recently and did enjoy that.
