OK, to get the ball rolling, I thought I'd make an introductory post for myself. :)
I started drinking whisky perhaps half a year ago after I saw a pack of various miniatures at a local supermarket and bought it on a whim. These weren't exactly fancy, but they were interesting enough to make me want to try more.
When another, bigger supermarket had an opportunity to sample various single malts, I took advantage of the opportunity, and shortly thereafter, I bought my first "real" bottle (Glenfiddich's 15 year-old variety). I don't drink a lot – at most one glass per week, on average –, but when I eat out with the family, I sometimes take advantage of the opportunity to have a nice malt after the meal, if the restaurant's got any.
Whiskies I've tried so far include Glenfiddich (12 and 15 years), Glenfarclas (12 years), Talisker (10 years), Bruichladdich Waves, Arran (cask strength), Springbank (15 years), Smokehead, The Glenlivet, Lagavulin, two special Glenfarclas bottlings from 1988 and 1973 (this
being the latter) and Glenmorangie (25 years). I've also tried a couple of others that aren't Scotch single malts, including Johnnie Walker Black Label, Jack Daniel's and Tullamore Dew.
Out of these, my favorites are probably Glenfiddich 15 years, Smokehead, Lagavulin and the old Glenmorangie.
Everyone, feel free to make introductory posts of your own! :)
