Oh, there's a huge difference. But when you've only tasted one good Scotch, you don't have a baseline. The Cragganmore is very mild. Next time Bill is here I will have him taste the Caol Isle mistake - taste like licking a charcoal pit. He will then understand that there is a huge difference: pleasantly drinkable v. what-the-fuck???

I don't recall the hint of the charcoal pit in the Caol Isle, but it was definitely a very different taste from the others I drink.

Very, very smoky. To the point of unpleasant.

Personally, my baseline Scotch is Bowmore. Smooth, hint of sweetness, hint of smoke. Good stuff.

Have not tried that one. We will make note of it for the next event.

I'll have to check that out. Sounds close to what I tend to like.

It's enjoyable stuff, and priced similarly to Johnny Walker Black. It's not Glenlivet but honestly I'm surprised it's not more popular.

Heh, that's precisely what I liked about it. It tasted to me like the perfect Scotch for having a cigar or pipe in front of the fireplace, with the dog next to me :)

Hence the reason there are different distillations!

The problem is that Bill would have to remember what the Caol Isle tasted like, which I don't think he would. We'd need a side-by-side comparison.

If you really wanna mess with someone, buy a bottle of MacGregor and give 'em a shot then ask their opinion. If they make any good comments about it, they're talking out of their asses 'cos while it's my actual heritage and all, it's utterly foul in every aspect. We often use that and Sheep Dip to weed out the know-it-alls.
