So here's the thing: I'm a bourbon drinker. But beyond that, I'm a drinker. Occasionally I drink single malt scotch. Macallan 12 is my drink of choice, because I think it's got a great quality to price ratio. They were out today and I picked up a bottle of glen morangie (sp?). It's not bad, but I definitely prefer the Macallan. What I don't understand is why. I get a little bit about scotch -- I understand there are regions and groups of distilleries within those regions. For example, when someone says they like Islays, I know that that means. What I don't know is why they like Islays over another region. So I pose 2 questions here: 1. Why do you like the scotch you like? 2. What do you believe is the best scotch value...meaning quality for the price.
