Yeah, but taxation drives me to drink. Tax-free, that is.

Just tried some Laphroaig last night, love the peat!

Man, I think I'm going to go to Bevmo today and buy a ton of 50mL bottles to do some sampling.

Oh, I hate Maker's Mark. It's my friend's favorite and he was raving about it for a while, then I tried it and kind of had to force it down like Skyy lol.

Great stuff. Great story!

Okay, the Bevmo store's 50mL selection was not as good as it was online, but I did buy a 12 year Glenlivet, 12 year Glenfiddich, and a 12 year Dewar's, looking forward to sipping these with a buddy tomorrow

Another excellent option with a surprisingly low price is W.L. Weller.

Been sipping on these recently.

Talisker 10 - oh so good. A must try for anyone.


Knob Creek - probably my favorite sipping bourbon. I personally prefer it over Bulliet and the price is similar.

Got a glass of Lagavulin at a restaurant today...I think it's better than Laphroaig, but the price tag is a bit unfortunate :/ Need to find some Ardbeg to try.

I've still yet to go full Islay, it scares me a bit lol.

Then again I've heard that once you try it you're hooked for life.

Honestly, Islays are way smooth because of the peaty flavor which covers up the alcohol really well, I really like that part. Lagavulin comes bottled at 46% ABV but sniffing it you really don't get the harsh alcohol vapor sting in your nose, just glorious smoke

This is the beginning of an expensive habit T_T.

check out Laphroaig's Cask Strength or 18

I do love Lagavulin though... Still need to try their 12 year!

Ardbeg is good, but personally do prefer Laphroaig and Lagavulin.

If you have a chance, try Octomore too

Laphroaig 18 is expensive! Well, not worse than Lagavulin but the 10 is so common that most places only carry that. I want to try their quarter cask, which supposedly tastes a little bit more mature than the 10, but hard to find a store that carries it.

I decided to sample what America has to offer in the way of malt whiskeys, and this is my first acquisition. The marketing compares it to Islay malts, but there's a big difference between a peaty malt and their 'triple smoke of beech, cherry and peat.' Its not the most complex I've tasted, but it has a decent body, I can taste a bit of the cherry, and it has a nice long, pleasant finish.
