Had my first "Measure of the Macallan" last night

"Man nor woman cannot live on one scotch alone." - Me

The Macallan is one of my favorite, all time scotches, but from a regional sense, it is one of my favorite Speyside scotches. Another very good and reasonably priced single malt is Cragganmore. It's very light and easy to drink, a good "starter" scotch for those new to the libation. From the island of Skye, Talisker is also a favorite.

Islay single malts are known to be VERY peaty and smokey, not something every whisky drinker is fond of. I'm particularly fond of Ardbeg, known as the "Gentle Giant". Lagavulin is a close second to Ardbeg for me. Laphroaig? Can't even go there. It tastes like a wet, woolen mitten although devotees swear by it.

Lowland whisky is lighter than the others, a bit softer on the pallet. Rosebank is my all time Lowland favorite.
