Glenlivit
For my birthday last January, a friend got me a bottle of 12 year old Glenlivit. I've never been a scotch man, but I've been working on the bottle recently. So, I'm sitting here watching college football and putting a glass away and I've realized two things:
1. I'm a booze snob. I only drink expensive beers and top shelf liquors (my vodka of choice is Belvadere), and
2. With the good stuff, I am a scotch man.

Anyway, I'm in a happy place now and thought I'd share.

RE: Glenlivit
Never did like scotch, until I had some good stuff.

But now I have come to believe that the whole world is an enigma, a harmless enigma that is made terrible by our own mad attempt to interpret it as though it had an underlying truth.

When I'm done with this bottle, I will upgrade to the 30 year Glenlivit. As good as the 12 is, the older must be awesome.

Make that the 18. There doesn't seem to be a 30. And, the 18 ain't cheap.

RE: Glenlivit
Glenlivet used to be my everyday Scotch - can't afford to drink it as an every day Scotch any more. Yep, it's tasty.

For a real treat without completely breaking the bank, try Balvenie Doublewood.

Cheap scotch is generally not worth drinking. Most blends aren't either. Johnny Walker black is (just barely) OK, though.

RE: Glenlivit
Thanks. I may look for that.

RE: Glenlivit
I'm a teetotaler, but my son-in-law brought over JD with Honey on Xmas Eve and I tried it. I wouldn't know if it was good or not since I don't drink, but it was smoother than I remember whiskey tasting in the past.

I think I would be a top-notch liquor drinker if I did that sort of thing.

RE: Glenlivit
My view of drinking is as follows: no matter what you drink, it's bad for you. So, if you're going to drink, spend the money and drink well. I'm not rich but I make enough money that I can afford the good stuff.

I'm more of a cola man myself.
I actually fancy myself a bit of a soft drink connoisseur.

RE: Glenlivit
If you like The Glenlivet, you'd probably also like Balvenie Doublewood and Aberlour and other lighter Scotch. I'm definitely a Highlands-only Scotch connoisseuse, as I react badly to anything with a strong smoky flavour and can't tolerate most of the peated Scotches (even Bowmore is too much smoke).
