I've mentioned that while I love Irish, Canadian, American and Bourbon whiskey. I just don't care much for Scotch.
So, for Christmas my step-son gave me a book entitled "Whiskeypedia" (Scotch-centric), a set of whiskey stones and a really nice little whiskey tulip glass that looks like a tiny IPA glass. Very nice, thoughful present I thought.
So now, I feel obligated to re-open my mind and pallette to the smoke and peat. I'd like some advice on a place to start, specifically regarding Scotch. Somewhere in the middle, I don't want to break the bank but I'm not interested in learning what bad Scotch tastes like.
