I'm young and fairly new to scotch. My grandpa introduced it to me a couple years back and I've grown quite fond of it over the last year or so.
I'm a law student, so my budget is limited, no 15-18yr aged
Here is what I've tried, in a ranking order of how I enjoyed them. Note all range from the 8-12 year range.
Aberfeldy (clear cut favorite, but a tad more expensive than I'd like to continually purchase)
Laphroaig (did not like this one bit)
It seems Islay seems to be the least appealing to me.
