Greetings From Minnesota!
My Name is Louie and I recently discovered this site while perusing youtube.
my background has mostly been a Irish blend drinker but over the last year I have been starting to expand my knowledge and enjoyment of other whiskys, I am definitely an amateur having only tasted a handful of single malts.
My very favorite of what I have tasted so far has to be the Dalwhinnie 15yrs and my least favorite is the Lagavulin 16yrs. It has become clear to me that I am no fan of the heavy smokey peaty whiskys.
I am open for suggestions of which whisky to try next that is affordable and for amateur palate. I was thinking perhaps a Glenfiddich 12yrs due to it's popularity with beginners.
Thank you Mr.Leuning for the great site and videos introducing me to a new world of Whisky and flavors.
