There are some of you who are more familiar with these offerings who may get just as good a scotch for far less.

    So give me some choices that a bourbon guy like me can transition over to a single malt and have a good starting point without getting something that might turn me off. Plus I want to be able to offer to guests without embarrassing myself. Let’s stay away from the strong peats to start with. That may be an acquired taste. So Orville jump on in here and all you other Scotch guys. Tc
    Sorry about that . . . Introductory Single Malts?

    Glendronach 12 YO is a very nice, easy drinking Scotch. Fruity in the way that Bourbon is "sweet".

    Bowmore 12 YO is an Islay Malt, so there will be Peat. But it is a LOT less peaty than the more noted Distilleries.

    Tomintoul's 16 YO offering is also a very nice "starter" Scotch.

    None of these will break your bank, and all of them have different characteristics to help you see what you like. The Bowmore would be a great way to see if you want to head further onto Islay and try out some of the more peaty offerings there.

    If I had to recommend ONE bottle, it would be the Glendronach.

    Appreciate that Orville, my next shopping trip will include a couple of your suggestions, starting with the Glendronach
    Even better advise, " don't impede on a 850# Harley with me aboard, then I don't care what your driving, my 10 takes care of it"

    Have any of you tried Proper No. Twelve yet? Iím usually a Jameson man, but this quickly became my favorite a few months back. Very smooth and nice after tones.

    Ardbeg Uigeadail today. Finally finished my blog post about it. I think it's about a year since I last posted a review on there, but I'm getting into it again.

    I've tried it . . . I have read reviews that compare it to drinking turpentine. Personally, I think that makes turpentine sound bad. Not sure what to call it, but "proper" is not an adjective I would use. It's one of two spirits I will never touch again.

    Not in the same league as its older sibling but it has a lovely smokey sweetness with a hint of spice.
