Tyson,

Have you tried Glenkinchie?  I was told that it has a very nice sweetness to it (which I like in a single malt).  I've got at most dram left of Macallan 12 (and my previous bottle was a Glenmorangie Madiera Port) so I plan to go shopping next week, perhaps at the duty free as I have a flight out of HK.

Cheers,

- Jay

Yep, tried glenkinchie, it was OK, but too light, I prefer a scotch with more body (like Macallan).

You really should give the Aberlour Abundah a try if you can find it.  Glenmorangie Madiera wood is also a very good medium body, ultra smooth, sweet scotch.

Thanks, I will pass on the Glenkinchie since I like the body of the Macallan.  I'll look out for the Abelour Abundah at the Duty Free.  The various Glenmorangies are quite easy to find and would be my fall back.

Cheers,

Glendronach is another good heavily sherried scotch.  In fact I think it's more interesting and better tasting than the Mac 12, and about on-par with the Mac 18.  Don't know why it slipped my mind earlier, but it would be my primary rec for someone that really likes macallans but wants to try something else in a similar style.

Thanks, I'll see if I can find a bottle of the 12 y.o. Traditional or the 15 y.o.

Cheers,

I got a bottle of Aberlour 15 at the HK airport duty free on my way to Bali... its a very easy to drink scotch, nice sherry taste.  It doesn't seem as strong as the Macallan 12.  I think I'd want to have a bottle of both, depending on whether I want something strong (but smooth) or mellow.

Thanks for the advice, Tyson!

Glad ya like it!  The aberlour 15 is also less viscous feeling too, which leads to the impression of a lighter scotch than the Mac.

Tyson,
Is there a way to make your list a sticky?
It would be my first list to bring with when buying scotch.

It won't be a sticky as long as I keep making updates to it on a regular basis, since the updates will keep it floating to the top.

Speaking of, I've added Glenmorangie 15,  Bunnahabhain 14, and  Glenlossie  15.

I agree with Andrikos.  Bartender!  Make this thread a sticky!

I'm definitely not opposed to it being made a sticky :-)

Bought a bottle of Scapa, added a bit more info to my review of it.

Tyson,

I read an article in the paper about Pints Pub. Is this where you are sampling many of these fine beverages? It sounded like they have just about the best Scotch selection available.

Tyson,
Many thanks for taking the time to report your findings.  I know it's also an arduous task to put yourself through the rigors of trying so many great scotches...  :lol:

Perhaps you should suggest good cigars for these scotches :?:  :idea:

Maybe you're not a smoker, though...  Oh well.  I tried a new scotch this past weekend.  It was like butterscotch, very smooth but too 'butterscothcy' for my taste.... and the finish was strange... too much alcohol for the level of sweetness... it just didn't mix well with me.  Not bad for one glass but, not good for 2.
