Not all Scotch drinkers appreciate a single malt and your collection should definitely contain a blend or two.Cutty Sark is dear to me for a couple of reasons.I live near the titular grand old lady and our family used to have an account with Berry Brothers and Rudd.Additionally it was formulated with the American market in mind.
Then Johnnie Walker Black label is a rich complex blend with nearly all the pepper notes aged out but if you are feeling extravagant and generous track down a bottle of blue label.
Dimple as suggested by Marsden is a good blend as well but looks a bit gay in that 'perfume' bottle[;)]
Oh, yes Johnnie Blue is gooood!
we were at the UK Club in Melbourne back in 2000, and a friend had a student card that gave us half price drinks. We decided to grab a round of blues, and asked jokingly if the card was valid. "Sure is" replied the bimbo. We thought sweet....$20 Johnnie Blues!!!, only she didnt know that johnnie was more than just premium, and charged us $4bux a glass. Needless to say, we polished the entire bottle which was full to begin with and asked if there was another....of course, there wasn't unfortuantely!
Strange,I understood that you are a Christian,yet you set out to decieve and steal? Am i missing something?

RE: An Acceptable Scotch?

I am a big Jagger fan.. Chilled served in a glass... I have done Jagger bombs, but it seems to make me into the hulk, bashing everything aroudn me.

I also am a big vodka fan! I live taking straight shots (with a dash of some sprite).

I use to be really into Rum, but after so much of one thing.. It just isnt the same.. When i drank Rum it was either Captins or Cruzin

Here's what I do: go to the liquor store, locate the single malts and grab a bottle off the top shelf. Then, look at the price, cough a few times, put the first bottle back and grab a bottle off the next shelf down. Haven't had a bad batch yet.[:I]
So the rumors are true! You are a cheap date![:)]
Not cheap---mid-range. Jeez.
Just get whatever her drunk. That’s true thou usually cheap ones (such as, Schlitz or Old English 800, Sry these are beer)get people drunk faster. Have a nice day everybody.

Back to Scotch question, get so-ju. It is Korean, and usually 21% ~ 24% of alcohol per volume.
Um...how many OE's did you have this morning?? I said 'mid-range' NOT cheap. As if I'd touch a Schlitz...[xx(]

Drinking is bad...and smoking is bad.....Mkay?
No body is going to get out of this world alive, so what is the sense to arrive to the grave with a perfectly good body? Use it, wear it out, ragged it out.

Good stuff[:p] If you look hard, you can find Balvenie sampler set in miniature bottles.

If you really want to get into appreciating single malts, start with this book

<img src = "http://images.amazon.com/images/P/0762413131.01._AA260_SCLZZZZZZZ_.jpg">
Excellent and comprehensive guide, with very fair analysis of each single malt.
Make a shortlist of single malts based on descriptions that intrigue you.

Depending on which part of left coast you are from, you may want to go for the lighter option if you're in SoCal and go the other way if you're up in Seattle - the idea? A shot of Laphroaig in 80F weather will not be appreciated as much as when it is consumed in 40F climate - I personally find it rather difficult to sip single malts during summer months; tequila rules in absence of scotch! Like other alcohols, single malts are best appreciated when the climate emulates that of the region of production.

I'd start with three bottles that represent each principal region - Highland, Lowland and Islay (pronounced eye-lah).

Based on widespread availability and price, I'd recommend the following three as a starting point:

Glenfiddich - Highland
Auchentoshan - Lowland
Lagavulin - Islay (little pricier than the other two but Auchentoshan should make up for it)

Overall, I like Islays (characteristically powerful with a lot of iodine (seaweediness), 'tar' and 'smoke') especially Laphroaig, Ardveg and Lagavulin, but if I had to live with one, I'd choose Cragganmore.

All the recommendations in the previous posts inclusive of blends are good ones - the most important thing is that you enjoy each discovery.
