    I don't think I've ever seen that one, but I admittedly I don't spend much time in the scotch isle. I enjoyed your last recommendation, so I'll give this one a whirl. I haven't developed the palate yet for heavy peat, so this one sounds like a good choice for me!

    Cheers, thanks for rec Alco!

    On a related note I wanted to get my brother in law something for his birthday a few months ago and happened to get him a bottle of Monkey Shoulder. I wasn't even aware of this thread, but you're right, it's a very nice scotch. Goes for 50-60 bucks a bottle around these parts though.

    I recently acquired some of this:

    Would recommend.

    I've seen that bottle before, but never tried it. Now I am inclined.

    I'm a sucker for label art, and if I'm ever at the liquor store and feeling adventurous I just pick something with what looks like a fun label. More often than not the gamble pays off.

    Monkey shoulder isn't bad at all for the price its very good.

    I have a bottle of Glenmorangie to get into this weekend, lovely clean taste, kind of fruity almost.

    I haven't bought it in probably 10 years but I used to really like the one with the burgundy label.

    Most of the Whole Foods here have craft beer bars, all local brews. It's awesome.

    Once in a while for me. Usually holiday time. Too ridiculous. We have a Macallen bar now in North County
    so you can buy a shot for a hundy or two without buying the horse. I do love the sherry cask yumness.

    I don't even know how much a bottle of the 30 is.....but I would guess a few grand at least?


    I just looked at their whiskey list and flights, I could do some damage at that place!

    Haha, sounds good my man. Whenever I make my way out to Cali again, I'd be more than pleased to drink some whiskey with you.


    Are weed bars a thing where y'all have recreational legal? Or is it just dispensaries?

    I've been drinking a fair bit of scotch lately man, Glenmorangie , Glenfiddich .

    I love redbreast as well, in the pub its a green spot(Middleton) or if I'm swamping them, Jameson, which is piss I know.

    I will definitely check that thread out, I don't really know my bourbon.
