Too much of anything is bad, but too much good whiskey is barely enough

Not really. It’s been a bit of a newer habit for him, so he’s broadening his horizons over the last few months. He’s been open to trying different bottles.
Does Trader Joes sell liquor in the Blessed Lands? They routinely offer bottles of Balvenie with sherry or portwood finishes just slightly above your price range. They are good "gift" bottles.
Good suggestion is good.

My guess would be that Chris took some time off because he has read the dialogue on this page 1,345 times and decided to spend some of his free time doing something besides beating a horse to death.

They don't but Balvenie is a great recommendation too.

I need to be in the mood for something really peety. It does happen, and I keep some bottles on hand for such occasions. Ardbeg mostly.

On the opposite end, I've been all about the Auchentoshan three wood lately.
Ardbeg Corryvreckan is just phenomenal.

Can you please explain this?

I'm currently enjoying a bottle of Glenlivet 12. Can confirm it's 5/7.
Islays are HEAVILY peated. Laphroaig 10 is like drinking a marshmallow that was roasted in an oil refinery that was polluting way above legally accepted standards. I love it but many people don't.
Oh, you're just referring to the peatiness. Got it. My Ardbeg to me is at least as peaty as my Laphroaig. :megusta:

Laphroaig is IMMENSELY peaty. Scotch haters would say it tastes like dirt. I enjoy it. I've actually ordered it as an after dinner drink on a number of occasions. I like dirt.
I have a bottle of half cask Laphroaig and I enjoy the taste of peat bog very much.

I do agree with Bender that's it's not for everyone.

Yup. I like one of those, btw.

This is my one concern. There is an opportunity for it, but will anyone use it?

I think it largely depends on the users and the focal point of the forum. I'm on a motorcycle forum that's gone full circle - forum closed, moved to Facebook, and now is back to a forum again. The Facebook page is still there, but nothing much is discussed - it's usually just people sharing pics or videos at this point.

Admittedly the political atmosphere of 2016 had a lot to do with it - many of our most respected and active FB members quit FB and social media altogether, and we still wanted to talk about motorcycles - hence the reformation of the forum.
