  1. Awesome, thanks for the name refresher. Its been driving me crazy
  2. Just want to throw 2 recipes I've really enjoyed. Nik at Scott & Co. enlightened me one night when I was in a "spirit-heavy" mood. Since then, I've found myself going back to them quite often. Tipperary variation (I forget the name): 1 oz Laphroaig 10yr Cask Strength 1 oz Campari 1 oz Green Chartreuse Orange peel -Stir/Strain chilled glass The intense ingredients lead to a very complex cocktail. A lot going on, very dynamic as the glass warms up and temperature changes. A less smokey version would be... Crossing the Rubicon 3/4 oz Punt e Mes 3/4 oz Cynar 3/4 oz Campari 1/2 oz Green Chartreuse 1/4 oz Islay Scotch (Laphroaig 10yr CS) w/ a Laphroaig wash -Stir/strain chilled glass Just my thoughts, enjoy

    Scotch Whisky: The Topic

    I've been a lurker on the forums for a while now and generally can directly/indirectly find the answers to my questions. Unfortunately, there's just a tremendous amount of information out there concerning whiskeys, and as a Scotch rookie, I'm looking for some specific recommendations. As many have previously mentioned, Laphroaig was my first purchase. I bought a 10-year Cask Strength to use in cocktails. 3 months later I just finished my 2nd bottle and have learned to really enjoy it by itself. What I'm looking for is to expand my palate and knowledge of various region's characteristics. Does anyone mind recommending a few selections that will help me learn to differentiate between styles/regions? I am very interested in beginning to collect (outside of my Amaro collection), but my priority is learning the basics through diversity. I'm not looking to spend more than $70-$80/btl on my initial purchases. Thanks for any help
