18y/o Jameson Irish for something different?
Hmmm...based on your "likes" I would say you have to go with Balvenie 12 Yr. Double Wood or Abelour A'bundah 12 Year in the 12 year Highland category...in the 15 year I would say Glenfiddich 15 Yr. Solera Reserve (they are also some of the best values in their respective categories).
In other news, guess where I was today...!!!
Top shelf stuff you say...
On Saturday I've seen a 50 YO Glenfiddich bottle... only 25K! What a steal!
I suggest you try a bottle of Highland Park,
it's a bit of a sleeper.
A glass of Johnnie Walker Blue, neat, simply bleeds class like none other.
Tough crowd. Tell ya what, some one send me a free bottle (you know, cause you dont need it) and I promise the entire thing will be sipped. Not shaken, stirred, shot, mixed or iced
JW Double Black definitely taste best when you have it 'on the rock' IMO it even better than Blue.
I just bought a bottle of Johnnie Walker Blue Label. I hope you guys are right about this stuff, it would be a shame for me to have to pour a $250 bottle of scotch down the drain which is exactly what I will do if it sucks.
If you'd like a 'soft' intro to Islay smoke and peatiness, I highly recommend the Bowmore 12.
Recently a buddy ordered JW Blue at a restaurant and relished every drop. It wasn't his first time drinking it. When we got the check, we realized the waitress had served him JW Black instead.
I ve been through every scotch time and time again. I prefer Balvenie over anything!! Its like liquid candy! Nothing better than a fine cigar and a glass of Balvenie! even the 10yr old is a lot better than most older scotches IMO. The 12, 15, 17 are great! And the 21 yr old will just blow your mind!! Sorry Johnnie Walker you lose to this one!
Glenfiddich 15 yr Solera Reserve
Famous Grouse. Decent, and it won't kill the budget.
If you like the Glenfiddich 15...., try the 18. It's much better scotch for the price point.
