PS: The Laphroaig I tried SUCKED...

You'd probably be better off with one of the blander single malts, then.

After Neil said he drinks Macs, I wonder if sales went up?

I'm sure they must have done to a degree; I've seen so many posts from Rush fans who've tried the Macallan, and this thread is testament to that phenomenon biggrin.gif

In all seriousness I would urge people keen to try a single malt to seek out other brands; there are many better alternatives than the Macallan. I like Islays myself, but if you want to stick with a Speyside, the Glenlivet is much nicer than the Macallan in my view. It has a lovely velvety edge, where the Macallan tends to be rather nondescript.

A bunch of us are buying a friend of ours a bottle of the 18 for his 40th this weekend.  If he shares, I get to try some.  If he doesn't share - I get to knock him on the head and have the whole bottle! trink38.gif

Well, my buddy shared the 18 we bought him (good choice).  It was excellent - smoother than anything I have tried!

I just tried The Macallan for the first time last week.   Got the 12 yr.   It was superb.   Much nicer than a 12 yr Fiddich.   But more $    I have to save up now and snag me some 18yr.

mmmm Scotch.  Scotchy-Scotch-Scotch.

The 18 is worth every penny. Don't drink to get f-ed up but to taste the flavor. I got an 18 bottle and I'm still sipping it. My other: Jack, etc., are to get drunk. The Macallan? I sip for taste.

Gotta agree with that!!!

Not that I'd really do it, but seeing someone do shots of the M would bring out the temptation to smack.

I have only recently gotten into Scotch at all, because I discovered that my in laws have connections to Glenmorangie out of Scotland. I decided to try it and I really enjoy the 12 yr "wood finish" kinds. There are four to choose from and I've had a few fifths of each now. When I's a little broke if even go for the 10 yr and it is pretty good too.
I either sip straight out of a shot glass or pour over three ice cubes in a tumbler (before I read that in TM).
I'd like to try The Macallan because of Neil, of course. I don't care whether or not it's the best just to try it. What kind does Neil drink? Or does he mix it up? Or does anyone even know? It must be a kind one can get in the liquor store, eh? Because he drinks it whilst traveling?

In all honesty? I like any single malt scotch over 15 years old. They're smooth and the wood taste and smoothness is what I enjoy. I drank jack and coke or Early Times and I gag, until I get plastered. But I haven't done that for awhile. Still, I'm not dedicated to one drink but Neil's taste for Macallan made me decide to drink it wink.gif Oh and what blows me away? Didn't Neil have a flask?
