Going to my first scotch tasting party this month. Pretty excited. I'm only 1 bottle and 3 samples into the hobby. Here is our line up:

Damn, Glenlivet 25. Very nice.

Sipping Glenlivet 25 right now. Delicious.



Now that's good stuff!!   You need to stop by for some Highland Park 30!!

Honestly? I have a hard time recommending any single malt these days. The prices are through the roof. If you must have a single malt, I think the independent bottlers (signatory, Duncan Taylor, etc. ) are a better deal. But you might not ever see the same thing twice. For a blended, monkey shoulder is still a great value.

Ive personally been buying old single grain whisky from Scotland. They tend to be 1/2 to 1/3 the price of similarly aged single malts. Again, though, I don't have a specific recommendation because these are sold one barrel at a time. Anything from north British distillery is really good, and because no one knows the name, is cheap. The other thing I've been buying is cognac/Armagnac. There are 25 year old offerings all over the place for under $100. Way better value than single malts.


All of that said, if you're insistent on a malt: glenfarclas 12. Highland, sherry cask. It's maybe $10 more than it should be, but it is reliably delicious.

My favourite is Ardbeg but it's getting a little spendy lately. Talisker is an acceptable substitute.

I can't stand any smokiness at all, in any food or drink. I was brought up on Johnnie Walker because that is what my dad used to buy when he travelled, so the taste of JW has been what is whisky to me.

If I want a non-smoky scotch whisky somewhat like JW, but smoother and with a deeper, more refined flavour, what would you recommend?
I see recommendations here for Dalwhinnie and Highland Park, but in catalogues they are listed as having some smokiness, so I'm afraid those are not really for me.

You want to find highland/speyside malts done the way they have always been. Historically, the west coast and islands used peat for malting the barley, but the east coast used wood, which results in minimal smoke. Now, in modern times no one is lighting fires, but certain distilleries have kept their stuff the same. My recommendations are:

Glenfarclas- no smoke, sherry cask, reminds me of spice cake. What I serve to guests who "don't like scotch" and it's always a winner.
Mortlach or linkwood- you like JW black? Take some mortlach and linkwood, add a bit of lagavulin and caol ila for some smoke, round it out with some cardhu, Blair athol, and traces of a few others to balance out the batch inconsistencies, top it off with some grain whisky from north British distillery and you have it. Point is: if you like JW, then find some single malt from mortlach or linkwood because that's the backbone of the blend. They are both individually very good, and linkwood in particular can be found at good prices because no one recognizes it.
Arran- the price on this has climbed as of late, but it's really good. It's an island whisky, but is not peated--they do it in the lowland style (similar to the outstanding bladnoch, which is really hard to find and has been in and out of bankruptcy the last few years)

Same here. Not too sweet, no sea water taste, very approachable for those new to scotch, yet very complex for those who can appreciate it.

Man, I FINALLY got a call from my local specialty liquor store they got one bottle of Pappy's in and they are gonna hold it for me. This was a request I'd put in like 1 1/2 years ago, so after work I go down there super excited only to find out it was $1200! WHAT THE ACTUAL LIVING ****? I was prepared to drop like a couple hundred, maybey even 3 or 4 but that is downright hype levels of absurd. I laughed right in his face while I cried on the inside and wound up getting this instead.

That's effing robbery for Pappy's.  Weller B 12-year is basically the same stuff, and used to be an affordable workaround for those in the know... but now that stuff is also unobtainium. I've had both a few times, and they were good.  But not $1200 worth of good.  There's a limit dictated by common sense.  Think about this:  MacAllan 18-year goes for $250-325... Is Pappy's worth 4-6 times that?  Not even close.   

As for your consolation purchase, that is an A+ in my book.  Nikka Coffey Grain and Nikka Coffey Malt are both outstanding, and are on my short list of favorites.  Nikka in hand beats Pappy's or Weller on backorder every time.

The weird thing about the Nikka Coffey name is its already confusing making most people, including the guy at who sold it to me, believe it has a coffee flavor to it which it does not in the slightest. Being named Coffey for the rare and specialized still used to make it.

To further the confusion of the poor scotch consumer is the Malted one. Called Nikka Coffey Malted Whiskey - which is neither coffee flavored nor is it malt whiskey. Only being called malted due to the malted barley used to make it, and is in fact a grain whiskey.

For ****'s sake Nikka, you are confusing everyone unfamiliar with your brand!

It depends on how much you value your limbs. You can always find excellent bottles for $60-90. Around the $80 mark you are basically getting the best ****, everything above that is diminishing returns.

TP4,

If you're gifting scotch on a budget, check out Old Pulteney 12-year.  Runs around $30-40ish.  It's a really decent scotch without breaking the bank.

Edit:  If you can afford a bit more, consider The Balvenie 14-year Caribbean Cask at around $80.  It's finished in Caribbean Rum casks and imparts some honey and fruit flavors.  It's friendly and approachable even to those who are not Scotch enthusiasts.

Edited to clarify expense and to mention TB 14-yr.

4 Roses Single Barrel is still an outstanding choice, if you are into sweeter Bourbons.  If your preference is for dry spirits this may seem too sweet.

It is November 2019, and I drink Johnnie Walker Black Label

230473-0

Now, where is my flying car?

BTW. that is a double shot of whisky. It is a really big glass, the same type that Deckard drank out of.
No, I haven't got a special replica bottle.

If you're talking the 12 year old; An entry-level sweet, apply scotch. Soft, approachable, and predictable. It's fine, but won't impress anyone. Probably the most popular single malt on the market due to it's availability, so many times it defaults to baby's first single malt.

I think Dalwhinnie 15 is like the perfect balance between being approachable and sweet enough for non-scotch drinkers, and complex enough to please hardcore peat chuggers.

I thought so as well - then I found the Springbank 15. A poem of a cask!
