RE:SingleMalt

I believe the scotch Tyler prefers is Macallan, a fine highland malt. The 18 yr goes for a pretty penny but is worth every bit. I've polished off the last of my Macallan last winter while tying flies. I am currently on my second doublewood Balvenie of the year with just a bit left in one bottle. This one was introduced to me by Pete Lavoilette from Calgary while fishing on Cape Cod together.

I have two Islay malts in the cabinet - Bunnahabin and Laphroaig. I like the Bunnahabin a lot but I have to be in the mood to drink 'the frog'. Some of our guests like it so I keep it around.

I've really enjoyed Glenmorangie in single cask and sherry wood as well.

Also like Glenlivit, Oban is a nice highland malt, and I have some other single malts I couldn't name without running downstairs to read the labels. Obviously I am not expert either but I really do like the sit and sip the single malt elixir. It never warms the heart like it does when sipped from a flask on a winter steelhead river!
