Tried some Laphroaig today, my first Islay. Gotta admit, it has such a rich flavour. You really taste the oak hints and salty tones. Quite an interesting drink vs. the Speysides I've been on lately.

On that note, while at the DEL airport's new T3 Duty Free (which is MASSIVE), I saw the best collection of alcohol I've ever seen for sale. Such an immense variety of rum/vodka/scotch/everything that I can't even get here in Toronto. There was a Luxury Collection area with rare, aged bottles starting from 1K USD up to ~5.5K USD. The prices were also lower than most US DFA shops.

do you eat a lot of hotsauce? Maybe your palate/tastebuds are dead.

Honestly, its an aquired tast. I started w/ scotch and coke then scotch and soda as I got sick of drinking vodka drinks.

Its also a cultural thing as most of my friends/family were scotch drinkers.

If it's not for you, be happy. One less thing to blow money on...

Not to nitpic, but I wouldnt call Macallan 12 or JW Gold "low end". Certainly not high-end, but you could do a lot worse than those scotches...

Only the Macallan 12 is worth noting in that photo.

It's an acquired taste. Took me about two years to get my palate acquainted. As posted earlier, I, too started with cheap scotch mixed with soda/pop (ie. crown and gingerale), then worked my way up to lessing the dilution and moving towards better scotches.

well no scotch is good at 72 degrees... i personally like my scotch the same temp as my red wine, perhaps a little cooler.

Anything between 55 and 60 is a great temp to drink scotch neat.
