Daily drinker Scotches

#1 Post by JeromeHan » September 28th, 2017, 2:35 pm

After collecting scotches over a few years, I've noticed that there are periods in which the only bottles I really have on the shelf are not easy enjoyable drams. I have no problem opening up a nice bottle once in a while and enjoy it slowly, but there are times when you just want to drink something tasty.

I've noticed more and more that I've been leaning toward the Glenmorangie 10 and the Tomatin 12 as my everyday bottles that I can enjoy after a long day to simply unwind. Anyone have any other suggestions that would fall under the daily-drinker category? Both the Tomatin and Glenmorangie are around $30-$35 around me which is a fair price I feel.

I always have Springbank 12 and Lagavulin 16 on hand. Not sure they fit your description but they're my daily drinkers.

Campbelltown Loch is a blend but at $30ish it's a great daily drinker, especially if you're partial to the Campbelltown (i.e. Springbank) style.

Personally (not daily, but often):

Old Pulteney 12
Green Spot (Irish, but close)

Talisker 10, Springbank 10 (or the 2 CS), Glenlivet 15 (most prob the closest to the ones you mentioned) or a Bruichladdich if you can find one)

These would be my easy to find choices ( the Laph, Berg, Laga are all valid but you have to like the style)

Balvenie 14 in Rum casks, Glenfarclas 12 come to mind. Unfortunately scotch prices continue to climb and even daily drinkers are getting pricey.

I am more of a Speyside guy and don't much like heavy peat so don't have frog or lag on my shelf. But, there's usually Balvenie, Macallan, Glenrothes, Aberlour open at my house. Have quite a few Japanese malts open too. And tons of bourbon/rye.

for easy drinking, esp if you're ok with scotch on the rocks (can balance some of the heady alcohol and also makes it a more refreshing sipper), I like cheaper blends. Bank Note is pretty decent and is also a good mixer if you want a scotch cocktail like a penicillin, etc. Johnnie Walker Green is underrated for what it is -- all malt, no grain whisky, and 15 y/o age statement which is increasingly a rarity, and can be found at a great price at a lot of places, including Costco. the Green was out for a while but I'm glad it's back in production/distribution, has more depth than the black and is a much better deal than the blue or the newer platinum, etc.

I don't know about "heavy", but the iodine/peaty finish is definitely there. This is a blend, and also aged less than Springbank's single malts (6 years, I think), so it's not going to have the same punch as the above two. However, that's arguably a feature rather than a flaw for a daily drinker.

Always add a few drops of water. Yeah, it's on the sweeter side, as it's not so peaty. It's a blend of three non-peaty single malts, so I guess that's why (Glenfiddich, Balvenie and Kininvie)

i don't drink out very often. considering how easily it is to spend $20 on a pour of mediocre scotch, a 2 oz pour of springbank 21 from my cabinet runs about $27 and that is a small price to pay for such a fine dram.

And this ladies and gentlemen is how it is done !

Seriously well thought and I think the same way, thing is... living in a monopoly I dont get the nice prices you guys get in a costco for a Springbank ( the 15 was 150 ish, the 18 200ish and the 25 is 905$)

I love good single malt. I would say Lagavulin 16 is my favorite among the Scotches one can always find, but I like Balvenie, Bowmore, Highland Park, and others, too. But...

In the winter, after the day winds down, I probably drink more Teacher's than anything else. Yup - plain Ol Teacher's. A couple of years ago we did Falstaff and had a great Scottish baritone as a guest for Ford. We were chatting about booze, and he went off on all these $100 or so bottles.

He liked Teacher's, too.

For real cheap, there's the Trader Joe's Highland Single Malt for about $17. Not great but decent for the price.

+1. Perfect mid/upscale daily drinker.

I'm a bit gobsmacked at what some people are putting back on daily basis. Perhaps I misunderstand. I don't drink scotch daily but if I did this might be one.
Also Bunnahabhain Ceobanach.
And as a counter point, Laphroaig 10 with a very good splash of spring water (totally opens it up and adds a floral note to the nose)

For the occasional special dram I'm right with many of the higher octane tipples cited here. Ardbeg (any but especially Corryvreckan) or Bunnahabhain 18 (I don't see the older ones much) or Bruichladdich Octomore (ok I sometimes like a lot of peat) in particular. But Corryvreckan at the top of the heap.

Richard,
I'm with you on the Laphroaig 10 + a splash of water ... if the Laphroaig 10 is the cask strength version! (which, by the way, is in the running for my favorite whisky in the world). I find the 10 too watered-back as-is, but as a "daily drinker" (read: cheap and good) it works quite well.

Despite my participation in this thread, I'd say I average about 6 drams a year now that I'm back in CA; generally, the weather is just too warm for whisky out here. At that pace, I have multiple lifetimes of whisky in my very small and humble cabinet.

Don't know if I can quantify it really, but my understanding is that they actually drink other distilled spirits more than they actually drink scotch whisky.

I've been to Scotland a few times; they drink *plenty* of whisky.. (don't dare call it "Scotch," unless you want to immediately brand yourself an ignoramus tourist). They are, generally, much more willing to add some water to their whiskys than are American connoisseurs of the same, however.

I've actually heard this as well and it seems to be a sarcastic joke of sorts. They don't drink much scotch, but they do drink plenty of whisky, which Brian clarified is scotch whisky.

Actually a Scottish that I befriended at a tasting one day told me that the best way to find a tourist in a pub is to sport those who drink their whisky neat. lol

As well as people drinking just whisky there are all those having a 'hauf n a hauf' ... make sure to count them too!
And the comments about water vs neat are dead on too.
It IS a while since I was there and it's always possible the younger generation has been corrupted by vodka or tequila or something.

I thought the OP was about "daily drinkers!" What's up with all you Highland Park 12 and Caol Ila and Lag 16, and on and on folks...those are you dailys? I love those whiskys, but that's crazy. I read it and I immediately thought of some blended stuff that is tasty, but south of the $50 or so mark. I'd love to see more in that range, if they exist.

That is what I was trying to get, but I think I asked the wrong group of high rollers. I'm still stuck on my rotation of Tomatin 12, Glenmorangie 10, and Monkey Shoulder.

I'm going to have to try and find this, "Monkey Shoulder" stuff. Never heard of it.

It is fairly widely available in all big box stores and fairly well stocked liquor stores. Most will have it near bottom shelf though I find at around $35ish.

Late to this party, but for a daily blended whisky to mix with ice, soda or water depending on your preference - White Horse is a good bet.

Or Famous Grouse.
Personal favourite is Té Bheag, a blended malt (as opposed to grain).
And for a daily priced 12 yr old malt, Poit Dhubh from Skye.
Not only priced for daily consumption but the flavour profiles are also suitable.
