I thought we'd start a thread for all the single malt lovers out there in golfwrx land.

I am not a giant fan of the really peaty versions but I do know some chaps love the stuff

Just back from Scotland in late Sept and go to try some beauties, including a 33 yr old Tomintoul

Also of note, they do make a single malt in Nova Scotia here in Canada (big legal troubles as they used the prefix name Glen).   I was also quite surprised to buy a great scotch from our local store that is called Hellyers Rd, out of Tasmania, Australia.  Quite ironic as I was born there

Here is a list of the bottles I have owned / tried / finished.  I have kept some of the cooler tins, especially the golf related ones

Pull out the bottle of simple 10 year Glenmorangie and start pouring. Tried a lot of them but keep coming back.

My list isn't as extensive as the OP's, but I'm a scotch man too. Here is my short list:

Macallan 15, 18, 25 (had a glass of 25 at a company party where they said "open bar" until they saw how much each glass of the 25 year was, then they limited us to the 18 for the duration of the evening...)
Macallan 17 Fine Oak
Lagavulin 16 (recent favorite)
Johnnie Walker Blue
Bowmore 18
Ardbeg 10 (as smokey as they come....like drinking a cigar)
Honorable mention: Hibiki 12 which is a Japanese whiskey from the Suntory distillery and not "Scotch" but I really enjoyed this one and it was very smooth. Also reminds me of my favorite scene in Lost in Translation:
Last but not least, my current go to single malt, Glenlivet 18. @ $60-70 a bottle, its probably the best bang for the buck out there right now.

For the sake of clarification only... Johnny Walker Blue is a blend. Not a Single Malt. And IMO not worth the money. Not saying it is bad stuff. But then that is why I buy Famous Grouse for my at home libation.

Just out of interest: how much would you go through in a year?

Personally I'll only drink approx 1 bottle throughout the warmer months but as soon as it starts getting colder I'll go through about 1 bottle every 3 weeks.

I've already polished off a Glenmorangie and I'm 3/4 the way through a Jura Superstition. I'll usually get a couple of bottles for Christmas (hopefully, because once the Jura has gone I'm down to the "guests" whiskey: grouse and jamesons!)

Good point and I do agree with you that it's not worth the price tag.

On a side note, where do you buy your single malts from (besides bringing them home from the UK)? Bevmo doesn't have the widest selection. Do you guys order online from a specific site or have good liquor store in your area that you frequent?

How about we share photos of our current collection. Here is my very modest collection on my newly acquired liquor cabinet.

Here is what I have now:

The Glenlivet 15 French Oak Reserve
The Glenlivet 18
Bowmore 15

Hopefully adding the following over the next few weeks:

Ardbeg Uigeadail
Highland Park 12 or 18
Lagavulin 16
And another Glenlivet 18 because the one I have will be done soon

Anyone looking for a nice single malt on a limited budget should try the Grangestone 12. While not being very distinct it's only $25 and smoooooth.

Funny you mention that because I just got the notification email from my local Bevmo that they've restocked their supply of The Macallan Cask Strength that I've been meaning to try. Should be picking that up sometime this week!

My daily drink is Johnny Walker Green Label.  I have a friend that owns a liquor store and he gave me the greatest deal ever on a case - cheaper by the bottle than retail for JW Black.  He's a fine friend to have.

OK, help me out here. I acutally drink very, very little and when I do its just  a bottle of beer. But as a gif I received a bottle of Buchanans Scotch (says aged 12 years on the label). Is it any good?

Macallan 12 is about all I can afford (occasionally). It's definitely a fantastic drink.

ah, single malt scotch.  one of life's great pleasures.  i've tried a bunch over the past year, too many to list (or remember), so here's my current top 3.

highland park 18 yr - received as a christmas gift from a very satisfied client about a week ago... really nice.  smooth, with a little smoky burn at the end to let you know its there.  i had previously only had the 12yr HP, which is also good, but this is at another level, in price and taste. highly recommend.
balvenie carribbean cask 14 yr - last 2 years are 'finished' in an previously used rum cask.  my bourbon buddies really like it.  sweet and smooth, but with a lot more depth than bourbon imho.  if i am introducing scotch to somebody for the first time, this is my go-to.  really highly recommend.
lagavulin 2011 cask strength limited edition - all the peaty smokey brine you could ever want in a glass.  i hated it at first, but grew to love it by the end of my first drink.  spectacular and strong, not for the faint of heart.  a man's scotch.  the best i've ever had.
