    Balvenie Single Barrel Single Malt Scotch Whisky

    anyone tried this? I have to say I have trouble finishing even a short glass. The stuff is loaded with flavor.

    ..copy-paste..
    Sep 16, 2011 - Balvenie 15 Year Single Barrel Malt Scotch Whisky 750ml - The Balvenie Single Barrel Single Malt Scotch Whisky is a 15 year old single malt which is drawn from a single bourbon cask of a single distillation. Each cask forms a limited edition of hand-numbered bottles - there will be a maximum of 350 bottles from any one cask - so each bottle is unique and unrepeatable. Each cask is subtly different, however, The Balvenie Malt Master selects for bottling only those casks that have the essential characteristics of The Balvenie Single Barrel - particularly honey, vanilla and oak notes.

    The Single is a harsh toke compared to the sweeter Doublewood 12 yo. It starts with Iodine, then goes through salty coffee and ends with notes of black licorice. Yummm... Alas, I have not a drop of the stuff in the house atm. Only a lonely bottle of Ninkasi in the fridge. And so I am faced with a dilemma: Go for a quick ride and come back to beer, or just start drinking now and run out early...

      I prefer the Balvenie double wood, too.
      More balanced.
      But then my favourite is the Highland Park and the Edradour...

                I am a bourbon man. If I've got a few ducketts, my fave is Woodford Reserve. I'm not a Makers Mark guy. Can't put it into words, just don't dig it. Jefferson is almost as good as Woodford's. I can afford Old Crow on a daily basis. U.S. Grant drank it, though I have no idea what today's $19 plastic 1.75L jug is in relation to Grant's whiskey. I'll just call it functional!

                Scotch: not a big fan. Balvenie, I guess.
                Irish: Tullamore Dew or Jameson (I'm not religious either way)
                Canadian: No seriously...
                Rye: Jack Beam (don't you mean Jim beam? Son, when you've known him as long as me, he's goes as jack)
                Jack Daniels: Zager. Seriously. Even in teh green label. Zager at best! That ****************'s rotgut.

                    I've not tried much scotch. That which I've tried, I don't understand. I like American Rye; although admitedly I've only tried a few. I have Jim Beam right now, which is my go-to whiskey, although I don't drink whiskey regularly. But if I do drink liquor, it's usually Rye or Bourbon.

                      What is to understand about Scotch? I smell it, I turn green. I drink it, I throw up with one sip. Simple.

                      I can stand Irish in coffee, but the single malts are too much like scotch. Rye and Canadian are only a little better. The only whiskey I actually like is Bourbon, and then pretty much Maker's Mark and Knob Creek only.

                      I prefer Vodka, Gin, Brandy and Cognac. But I love good Tequila, Armagnac, and Rum, especially rum from Martinique, best.

                        Tequila makes me crazy. (I just learned this song)

                          Lets not forget that William Faulkner drank Old Crow. Anyone know who he was? I get a hint of Vanilla in Old Crow and it dont hold up in the long run for me. Evan Williams is the best I have found for the price and I drink it neat. I dont know the litre measurement but I get a big plastic bottle for 14.88 at WM liquor store. For me Kentucky Straight bourbon is far superior to anything similar to Tennessee bourbon.

                            Buffalo Trace or Eagle Rare for me. Old Charter 10-year-old is a decent bargain.

                              New fella here. I like bourbon best, then scotch. used to drink some
                              Rye but haven't in a while.
                              Bourbons I like .....Evan Williams 1782 small batch, Jim Beam Black, Makers Mark, Eagle rare, and a few others but for the really special occasions I like Pappy Van Winkle. I can only afford the 12 year old, the 18 is just to much for my pocket book, but it sure is good when somebody else pours me a sniff of theirs.

                              Scotch I like the Balvinie Doublewood, I like the Glen Morangie Sherry cask. I like a lot of them, just have developed more of a pallet for bourbon in recent years.
