passed thru this place while down in orlando for the gamecocks/cornhuskers in the capitol one citrus bowl. i was blown away by what they had on the menu.

dont know about spending 900 bones for an ounce of 55 year old macallan though......
prices are pretty decent tho... $10.95 for Oban, $11.95 for Green, Balvenie 15 for $11.95... etc.

I've tried the whiskey/perrier (the Japanese seem to really like this) combo a couple of times and I'm really not a fan. It kind of grosses me out, tbh.

Been using Whiskey Stones recently. I recommend.

I'll be traveling through Duty Free from Central America tomorrow, looking forward to seeing what I can find. Last trip from here I picked up two bottles of the Macallan 1824 Select Oak.

I like Japanese Whiskey & Tea mixed if it isn't an older whiskey.
Not a fan of Perrier's mineral content but plain soda water is sometimes nice to add an effervescence to the drink without adding another flavor element.

Ok, so based on your recommendation, I had tried the McLelland Highland, and for the money, a great scotch. I went to pick up another bottle tonight, and saw the McLelland Islay and Speyside scotches also. About the same price, so I thought I'd pick them up as well - based on how good the Highland was.

Well, the Islay isn't bad at all- seems very smooth, perhaps a bit lighter (for lack of a better word). I like it, and will buy it again.

The Speyside on the other hand, tastes like Buckley's cough syrup. Seriously, good for mixing only, or serving to guests you don't particularly like, or won't know any better.

The Highland is the best of the three, and is probably going to be my new 'daily' scotch. My favourites are still any of the Macallans, (the 18 is the best one I've personally had, but would love to try the 21 and 30) and Oban.

Spent a lot of time at the local Whiskey bar over the last month. Great place to get flights of any of 100+ kinds of whiskey.

I'm a beer lover and BJCP certified beer judge, looking to apply my palate to another beverage.

Favorite so far has to be the Balvenie 14 yr Carribean Cask. It has some pronounced spicy+fruity notes that were not so pronounced in some of the others that I tried, while not sacrificing any of the characteristic malty and vanilla notes. To the scotch experts: what other scotches out there have a similar flavor profile to this one?

I think you'd like the Macallans, or Oban.

Nice! glad you like it! Yeah, I did try them all as well, and that's why I chose to stick with the Highland. The speyside is typical OVER PEATIFICATION here, and makes it a really rough scotch, but I am sure it has some fans somewhere. Just too harsh for me and nowhere near as smooth and silky as the highland. Best bang for buck cheaper scotch anywhere!

Lol- Damn you! Could you not have mentioned that before?? I would have passed on the Speyside, and picked up an extra bottle of the Highland.
