    Don,

    The only thing I see wrong there is the seal is not broken and there are no cigars around!

    Give me a call; I'm willing to travel to help a brother out and I can provide training!

    Well, it is damn cold in Ohio but I would make the trek; just wish I could ride my bike up!

    Hell, I will bring some goodies with me if the QED soap is in!

    Well you're certainly off to a good start! I'm about to pour a glass of 10 year Macallan, I've never had the pleasure of the 15.

    I've only had MaCallan 12... the only single malt I've had, but I can't drink Dewars or Cutty anymore... Just don't taste good... however cheap scotch IS good for putting on some pipe cleaner to swab out the sludge..

    One of my favorite things is sitting on the porch with a glass of scotch, and a pipe (cigars are good too... but pipe more often).

    Another of the nice drinks is Bacardi 8. Supposudly used to be reserved for the Bacardi family.. bit more expensive than Superior, but cheaper than Mcallan.

    Macallans are good whiskies, but, if you like big, heavy flavors, and pairing with cigars, you should try some of the Islay malts. The peat-smoke flavors tend to go well with cigars. Laphroaig 10, Lagavulin 16, and any Ardbeg would all be excellent choices. If you really want to put some hair on your chest, Laphroaig Cask is a beautiful, heavyweight whisky.

    I know a lot of people love the heavier whiskies like those you mention but I really don't think they're a good choice for somebody who hasn't tried malts before. Macallan (or something equally smooth) is much better as a starter - I've know people be put off by the more "interesting" whiskies on their first try.
