in my opinion, Lagavulin 16 year. I say this because (hic) it is both profoundly excellent, and also available and accessible to the average drunken bastard... such as myself.

What say ye, Scotch drinkers?

Lagavulin 16 is my favorite as well. They ran out for a time last year and the local price spiked from approx $30/bottom to $80. It had been in Costco before, later Beltramo's wouldn't even put it on the shelf, you had to ask them and they'd bring some from the back room.

Scotch has gotten too popular lately though, with all the fufu casks and games to avoid aging (3D...)

That's certainly a good scotch. I personally am a fan of the more-manly-than-thou approach of a Cask Strength Laphroaig

I'v also had the distillers special addition, but

Ardbeg is awsome for drinking straight.
Caskstrenghth Laphroaig is great if mixed with water and ice.
Lagavulin is great on rocks.

If you're ever in Sacramento, I'd enjoy your professional opinion of a generic scotch prepared by an ancient, retired Navy Corpsman who was a Pharmacy Technician.

Laphroaig 15-year old is numero uno. Lagavulin 16-year is a close dos.

Suprising I have not seen any mention of The Macellan.

For a cheaper verion, I've been drinking "McClelland's" various formulas and like it. It's not as smooth as the Macellan but for half the price it helps get a daily taste.

I love the Laphroiag, but in a pinch Connemara a peated Irish whiskey, will fill the hole.
