I really enjoyed the bottle of cask-strength Oban my father-in-law brought back from his scotch vacation last year.

We cut it with some water and enjoyed it with cigars. \:\)

Last month I bought my brother-in-law's cigar collection and humidor. It's a nice modest set-up worth way more than what he let me have it for, but he knows I appreciate a nice stogie here and there. I'm not a regular smoker at all--I just pick and choose my spots (I really dislike the aftertaste that sticks with me for a day).

Anyway, I've been enjoying this thread because I like Scotch, too. It's an acquired taste, but I definitely want to try out some of the suggestions here.

Peter's post about Scotch and cigars painted a nice picture in my head.

I used to enjoy a cigar myself, that was before my heart went bad \:\( I gave what was a decent collection to a real good friend, the same one the scotch is for, knowing he would really appreciate what was being given to him.

It's a weird hobby I haven't come to grips with yet, Rick. . . on one hand I can't stand cigarette smoking--bleck--but there is something quite pleasing about a cigar. I can certainly live without it, I've only smoked a handful of cigars the past few years.

I really got into it 10 years or so ago. I had a girlfriend who was part Cuban and she vacationed for a bit in Cuba to visit family and brought me back a nice box.

Ditto on the cigar mouth destruction thing. I call it the morning-after effect, because I only ever smoke them in the evening.

I never brush my teeth entire mouth better than the night of and morning after a cigar, though. ;\)

LOL!!! My tongue probably thinks I'm drunk or something. . .

So I went to BevMo today thinking "it's New Year's Eve and I deserve something special!"

Came back with a bottle of Lavagulin 16. Wow - I like my Macallan 12 but this is on a different level! Reminds me a lot of the Caol Ila we had, Peter. Similar aromas and flavors - smoky, peaty, spicy, but smooth and really well balanced.

I never thought I'd enjoy scotch this much. \:\)

My wife got a bottle of Glenlivet 18 from another physician for the Holidays, I've been tempted but I haven't cracked it yet. \:\)
