    I don't have ONE of choice, I tend to try many of them, I have several brands I come back to over and over though.
    For favorite brands I like Oban, Aberlour, Auchentoshan, Ardbeg, Bunnaihabhain and Highland Park probably the most.
    Just recently I picked up some Caol Ila which is really nice, has everything I like about a good Islay malt.
    I haven't had glenrothes yet, but I love Talisker, nice little chile pepper of a scotch lol

    I have only had a handful of different single malts....I really like Bowmore 12 and Laphroig 10. I tend to like the peaty islay malts a lot. The Macallan 18 I have is very good also.

    My fave would be Glenmorangie 15 year old.

    For the price I like GlenLivet. Some friends just went to England though and had "The best scotch ever" supposedly, Springbank. At $30 a glass I'll keep my Glenlivet. Although you can buy this more reasonably online.

    Ive tried many but not all brands but I've said it before and I'll say it again:

    18 y/o Glenlivit. not to peaty, not to smokey, not too sweet. a perfectly (IMO) balanced scotch.

    From what little I know, 18yo GlenLivet is a good one to "start" with!!

    I was recently introduced to Glenrothes 21 year old. I love this stuff and have started to drink it more and more to the chagrin, I suspect, of my former favourite glenmorangie. I just got a bottle of Hart Brothers bottled Glenrothes 33 year old from 1969. Just waiting for the rigt time uncork it. Of course, at the $300-$400 price tag (depending on the exchange rate and source) , I'm not sure it will become my scotch of choice....

    I also love Oban.

    Glendronach has been a long-time favourite. Oh, and definitely neat!

    Re: Single Malt Scotch of Choice

    Tough question to answer. Soo many good ones out there. my quick answer would be anything but glenfiddich.

    My go-tos (I separate it into two categories)
    -Non-Islay: Macallan 18 and cask strength lines, Highland Parks 12 and 18 (I have still yet to try the 25).
    -Islay: I love the iodine of laphroaig and the peatiness and smoothness of the bowmore 18. As for my favorite: the talisker (theoretically a non-islay)... so strong, and full of fire.
    I usually do not drink SMs while smoking. It's too much for me.

    Has anyone tried the Dalmore "Cigar Malt" ?
    Worth trying, or just marketing hype?

    Re: Single Malt Scotch of Choice

    I have never had scotch, and don't even know much about it. Do you just drink it dtraight or mix it? I am a very inexperienced drinker... except for beer I have tried a good amount of kinds- but wines, liquor, mixed drinks... I just haven't much experience.. I don't know where to start.

    Say I go to the bar to get a scotch, what should I ask for? Just a scotch?
