Great advice - thank you for sharing! I wanted to comment about the ones you recommended - Auchentoshan 10 year as well as Glengoyne 10 year. Auchentoshan is a great light Scotch which I have described as "smooth and sweet (but not too sweet). Delicate and fruity". The first time I tasted Glengoyne 10 year, my first thoughts were, "this is a great, light, Scotch". I however, was more into heavier, bolder, cask strength types, so poor Glengoyne 10 year was pushed into the back of the liquor cabinet. Once I rediscovered it, it became among one of my favorites. It's also reasonably priced - I just purchased my second bottle for $40.
