Good Scotch To Set Aside For Son...
I'm VERY new to scotch. My uncle introduced it to me over the summer and I fell in love instantly (oddly enough). I'm not a liquor drinking, barely a beer drinker, and generally when someone refers to a hard liquor as "smooth", I call BS. I had never had anything that didn't taste and smell like rubbing alcohol, and up until recently, I had refused to believe that any of it was "smooth", and those that said otherwise must have been too drunk to get their adjectives right. I now feel differently. I wish I could tell you the brand or year that he drank, but I know that when I ask him about it later, he told me to start with "Macallan Cask Strength". He has his shipped in with his businesses tooling from Europe, and it's apparently pretty expensive. Problem is, now that I've had something REALLY good and, surprisingly, smooth, I don't like anything else I've tried. I've tried the black, blue, and red labels of Johnny Walker...well, that's it so far. Anyway, this is really not the reason I started this thread, but I'd like to get some advice on where to start my own personal trip through single malt scotch. Any advice? Now, for my original question, I'd like to buy a nice bottle of scotch to set aside for my little boy for when he turns 21/gets married or something, and I'm curious as to what would age well? Any suggestions for that as well? I don't mind spending a little on this one because it would be special...by a little, I'd still not like to spend over $200-300. Any insight, advice, words of wisdom would be greatly appreciated. -Luke-
