Searching For The Right Scotch
I'm a newbie to the scotch world , recently bought a small bar for my office area with some nice decanters .So I thought I would buy some scotch to try it , so far I bought a few bottles but not to thrilled with the taste .Based on my choices , which I will list and tell you what I don't like about them can someone direct me in the direction of maybe a scotch that would suit me well. Cause I've bought a few bottles and really don't want to invest in more bottles of scotch that I don't care for .
So far I bought
Dalmore 12 ... This scotch is ok but the fruit flavor with vanille is to sweet tasting .
Highland Park 15 ... This reminds me of a watered downed dalmore with the fruit taste but with a bite of a spice added to it .
Lagavulin 16 ... This one is way to smokey and peaty for a novice , I thought I would give it a try to see if it would be what I'm chasing after but its not .
The Balvenie Doublewood ...This is another one that has a bit of fruit taste to it , its alright but still doesn't do it for me .
The Glen Levit 12... Doesn't have much flavor stronger alcohol taste to it .
Johnnie Walker Black...I had this a few times and it was ok on the rocks, but the batch I have at my house has a peaty smoke lagavulin taste to it .
What I'm looking for is a strong masculine taste , but not the peaty smoke taste or strong alcohol bite.Something with a little hint of fruit or wood but not so sweet that I feel like i'm drinking a chick drink.
Thanks any help would be good...
