Re: Whisky

I was out for lunch this week and realized I was next to a state store (lol PA liquor laws, don't ask...) and this thread popped into mind.

I picked up a bottle of The Balvenie DoubleWood 12 Year, which is an old favorite and has been mentioned or shown in this thread. This is the bottle I recommend to friends mostly familiar with bourbon or blends such as JW or Dewars' since its combination of smoothness and value makes it one of the most appealing entry points for single malts.

Also, since I have no self-control, I picked up a bottle of Laphroaig 18 Year since I've thoroughly enjoyed the 10 & 15 (which the 18 is replacing) in the past. Will post some thoughts when I crack into this one.
