Re: Which new Single Malt?
Hey, I'm in the same situation, got hooked on whisky by Binnys, the Skokie one. I go to the Skokie one, they are nice. If you ask them (any location probably), they will give you a sample of something to try.
I got the Glenlivet 18 because I tried it at a restaurant first - so I could not resist, kept thinking about it for a week. Try that - then you feel no regret buying.
But I got Caol Ila, because Binnys gave me a sample of it - I left the store, great taste did not leave me for days, so I got it.
For an 18 yr, you won't get any better for the cheap then Glenlivet 18 - that and Caol Ila are favs. I'm pretty sure Binnys is not overcharging much for the 70$. I'm always so excited to go there, but I try to withhold.
