The Glenlivet 12 is pretty smooth.

And I have to say it's quite nice, too. I'm not the best at describing taste, especially in a kind of drink I'm not familiar with, but it's quite smooth, lots of honey on the front and backside, and a nice smokiness over the whole thing. Doesn't get too hot on the finish, either. Good stuff.

I'll be curious to try something like the Glenlivet 12 and see if I can appreciate the differences between it and the Macallan. If I can't, then I know to save money next time around.
I haven't had Glenlivet 12, i'll give it a shot, I'm low on my Macallan and my Dalwhinnie, and my Glenfiddich 18 which was a "best man" present is more of a "break out the really good stuff" drink. Macallan has been my standby forever, and Dalwhinnie I got into about 10 years ago when i got it as a 'thank you' from a Marketing guy at a company i worked at for helping him out.

Ironically, they don't sell Macallan 12 in Scotland......they have a 10 as their low end, skip 12 and go to 18 as the next one up. 18 is about triple the price of the 12 but when I was at Costco yesterday I noticed a "kirkland" 18 year old made by the macallan folks at about 80, might be worth a try.

So many drinks, only 1 liver..........

I may break it out tonight at 5 Pacific Time, which is when the polls close on the east coast.

Any hour prior to that is just unseemly.

But yeah, once results start coming in, that's when I might need to self-medicate.

They close at4pm PST in some places (FL, VA, etc)

Not at all unseemly.

It would meet with wholehearted approval in Scotland......
