I couldn't seem to find a place to post an official newbie introduction, so pardon me if this isn't the place to do it.
I'm posting in the Single Malt section because most of my Scotch is Single Malt.
My Scotch Journey began a little over a year ago. Previous to that I never really liked Scotch. I was more of a Bourbon drinker. For my Birthday last year some friends took us Wine Tasting in the Napa Valley, then we retired to their parents house. On hand was a couple different Scotch'. We started off by sipping on some Johhnie Walker Black Label which to my surprise was quite tasty, then we moved on to Johnnie Walker Gold Label. At that point I was amazed by how good the Gold Label was.
After that I started looking into Scotch. Reading about it, talking to people, watching reviews on youtube, talking to anyone who liked Scotch. I figured if Gold Label was as good as it was then Blue Label must be even better. For New Years 2012 I picked up a bottle of Johhnie Walker Blue Label as my first official bottle of good Scotch. I found Blue Label to be amazing!
I have now added several bottles of good Scotch to my collection and plan on expanding it often.
Here's some of what I have so far
From Left To Right Regular Bottle: Johnnie Walker Blue Label, Glenfarclas 25 Year Single Malt, Oban 18 Year Single Malt, Johnnie Walker Green Label 15 Year Blend, Bowmore 12 Year Single Malt, Macallan 15 Year Sherry Oak Cask Finish Single Malt(kirkland bottling), 20 Year Speyside Single Malt Kirkland bottling, Highland Park 12 Year Single Malt, Johnnie Walker Double Black Label, Johnnie Walker Red Label, Chivas Regal 12 Year Blend, Monarch Glen 15 Year Blend, J&B Blend.
Small Bottles: Highland Park 18 Year Single Malt, Glenlivet 12 Year Single Malt, Singleton by Glendurran 12 Year Single Malt, & Chivas Regal 12
