Last bottle. Back when you could find it, a liquor store for some reason wasn’t able to move it. I bought their inventory, a little over 4 cases at $32 a bottle. Wife was not impressed. Also have a bottle of Gibson’s 12 year that I haven’t broken the seal on yet that was a gift. Might have to do that soon. Small convenience store/gas station in Mitchell SD about a year ago had 2 cases in inventory left collecting dust on the shelf. Stuff had been there a LONG time, lots of dust on top of boxes. Offered the owner $40 a bottle for what was left, she is asking $69. She said no as it was a good seller, I pointed out the dust and told her she hasn't been able to purchase that in over 4 years. She wouldn't budge.

I mentioned Woodford earlier in my post. But at the end of the day in my opinion, along with
Friends of mine good old Crown Royal is hard to beat. Strait with a couple of ice cubes.

I prefer bourbon, but not set in stone. Russells 10 yr. is my favorite, George Dickel, Basil Hayden also very good. I use only a very little ice, and small sips, enjoy the taste. I also measure, 2-2 1/2 oz just right for me.

You want sipping whiskey, try Kesslers. I'm certain you'll be sipping it. Should last years.

Cabinet Farms is real good. I don't remember which one I had though.

For smooth, Woodford Reserve Rye on the rocks. Almost too smooth.😅

to me, the answer to your initial question is simple - single malt scotch. and even the cheapest single malt is smoother than the blends (up to a point anyway - single malt aged less than 8 years is questionable).

- there 4 main types - highland, lowland, Islay (pronounced eye-lay) and speyburn although there are others. highland and lowland are quite similar and my favorites, speyburn is a bit harsher and Islay is totally different being quite "peaty" and smoky. it's said that real connoisseurs choose Islay - not me, i'm just a commonsewer.

- 10 year aging pretty much get's you there - 12/15 and higher may be a tad better but hardly worth the additional price.

a great cheap one is McClelland Highland (McCallum is different and a bit better but much more expensive - it is highland also) - you can get a 750ml bottle for $20US or so.
