      I don't even know what chill filtering does to a whisky but I feel like the bottle patting itself on the back like this is a red flag

        >what chill filtering does
        It pisses off the whisky snobs. Chill filtering is done by lowering the temperature of the liquid to just below freezing; the water will start freezing around any nucleation sites (which include suspended particulates) making them larger; the semi-liquid/semi-frozen mixture is then run through a filter where the ice-coated particulates are separated. This has the benefit of clarifying the whisky by removing microscopic bits of charcoal from the whisky, it also has the secondary effect of increasing the proof of the whisky. But mostly, it's a cheaper way of filtering the whisky than investing in a submicron filter and high pressure pump.

    We're a two-whisky household. For celebrating we drink Lagavulin 16, but for everyday we satisfy ourselves with Johnnie Walker Black. Not nearly as good, but still pretty good, and far more economical than drinking Lagavulin allatimes.

      I grew up Mormon and still don't drink so I have no idea what the norms are when it comes to alcohol.

        It's normal to have a nightcap every day, but people who start drinking late in life are more vulnerable to alcoholism so I would stay away if I were you.

        By 'everyday' he probably means 'on non-special occasions'. Like for example you might drive to work in your Honda (your 'everyday' car), but on your wedding day you might ride in a limo

          You're kind of half right. That is how I meant it, but also we're the kind of mid-life couple who enjoy a little drink before bed most nights. Not EVERY every night, but more often than not. Splash of whiskey, possibly an ice cube depending on moods.

    My girlfriend at the time gave me a little tasting set of Islay whiskeys for my birthday after she saw me watching scotch videos from Forgotten Weapons on Youtube. We tried them all and Lagavulin was the clear winner. Then she gave me a bottle for Christmas along with some shot glasses. Don't have the girl any more but I still have a little scotch.

          Yeah they're nowhere near each other, the Lagavulin is much more drinkable for most scotch drinkers unless you just really love the ardbeg flavor in particular, most people would prefer the Lagavulin by a mile.

            I can't remember which one is was, but I had a peaty scotch tasting once and one of them was like burned newspapers steeped in normal scotch. Might have been Ardbeg, not sure. The Lagavulin was smooooth.

        If that's the ONLY reason? Yeah probably.

        I don't like johnnie walker red/black/dbl black because they're not really good.

        I do like johnnie walker green/gold/18 because they're consistent taste, almost always available, and the price is steady.

        I have the weird habit of liking things based on price/taste/ease of access instead of arbitrary shit like the actors they use in their commercials or if it's a single malt vs a blend.

          not off the top of my head. Glenfarclas and Glendronach tend to have a chocolate note that is reminiscent of a tootsie roll.

    Just bought a bottle of scotch for the first time and finally understand what people mean by "smokey". I did not expect it to smell like a literal campfire.

    I'll be honest... I don't think I like it. Very different. But still better than all the irish whiskey I've tried.
