  1. May sound like a bit of a long shot but perhaps try something more intense such as Ardbeg Ugideal or Laphroig 10 CS. I too disliked peated whiskey at first but once I tried some of the more even smokier stuff I came around to it. Could potentially work for you too.

  2. Highlight: Ardbeg Uigeadail - so dense and smokey yet sweet and flavorful

  3. I agree in both cases, Oogie is a masterpiece, whereas the Bowmore 12 is the most lacklustre single malt I’ve ever tasted.

  4. Bowmore 12 is the worst Single malt out there and not a good introduction to Islay.

  5. Got a few suggestions: Glenallachie 10 CS (batch 6 if you can find it), Ardbeg Oogie, Dalmore Cigar Malt

  6. If it garauntees you a fat raise or promotion go for it. Otherwise down it yourself

  7. Agree. Also find the finish a bit off-putting. There are many better for the $

  8. Lived off their rye for two years while living in England. Not bad

  9. Haven’t had the rye, sure I’ll try it at some point

  10. I find that most people who say they dont like whiskey are those who have only tried jack Daniel’s no 7 or some shitty blended scotch. I too strongly disliked crap whiskey early on and it was the better stuff that got me hooked. Not saying you should blow your budget but perhaps try something like Buffalo trace (on the cheaper end) or something a bit more premium.

  11. Started with some Buffalo trace and ended with Elijah Craig.

  12. Yes, you need pcr. Do the test after arriving at the airport

  13. Is it still worth going on a Tuesday tho or would it be dead ?

  14. Maybe youd like a dessert option to go with all the amazing bottles you have so far. Perhaps a Glenallachie 10 CS ( There newest batch of 12 is also really good) or a more classic option such as Glendronach (15) or the Dalmore Cigar Malt (dont hate on me for this one guys some Dalmore is good).

  15. I’ve always wanted to get a Dalmore, why would anyone hate on it ? Downside for me that at the moment I feel it being a bit pricey

  16. A lot of whiskey people hate on Dalmore because of the added colouring, chill filtration and low ABV.

  17. Glenallachie 10 Cask Strength Batch 6 is a great option !!

  18. Lol the bowmore had to go up ONLY bc it is an Islay .. and I have it … it’s the one I pour to ppl I don’t like when they come over
