Re: Whisky

Laphroaig has a taste all it's own--pretty different than a majority of other scotches. Personally didn't like it, but obviously plenty of folks do.

I couldn't do justice to begin to explain where to begin, but if I were you I'd try a few different bottles from the various regions. And I would also try a few different "finishes" or types of casks. Those two things will give each whiskey a different profile and should get you a sense of what you enjoy most.

As an aside question for the masses, how do you tell when your bottle was bottled? Is there a trick people use (assuming it's not on the bottle)?
