fairly new to whiskey

Postby mr3dman » Thu Jun 07, 2012 6:51 pm

I'm a big fan of Walker black, GlenLevit 12yo single malt. McCallen.. what are some others I can try in that taste range that won't break the bank? Thanks

Try a Glenfiddich, or take a chance and buy a Talisker

Glenfiddich is a good choice to match up against the Glenlivet.

Depends which Macallan you like. Do you like the sherry matured or the fine oak? Glenfarclas and Aberlour would seem to be a natural fit if it is sherry. Balvenie 12 Doublewood or 12 Signature might work as well.

You might try Teacher's blend against the JW Black.

I've found the Tomatin range to be very good for its price.

I think McLelland's are fairly inexpensive. They're not a distillery themselves, but their whisky is single malt.

Also try the Famous Grouse blends.
