Scotch Whiskey
During a vacation in Scotland in 1998, I visited the Glenfiddich distillery near Tomintoul.  At the culmination of the distillery tour they offered free samples of their single malt whiskey.  One taste was all it took to get me hooked on this most wonderful elixir.  In the years since then I have expanded my knowledge of Scotch Whiskeys and tried many wonderful varieties of single malt and blended whiskeys.  My personal favorites are:

Laphroaig - single malt from Islay, peaty
Glenfiddich - smooth & crisp single malt
Glen Morangie
Glenlivet - floral single malt
Chivas Regal - Blended - drink with water & ice
Inverhouse - Blended - inexpensive and smooth
Interior of the Glenfiddich distillery - note copper stills
