Read a good review of scotch on some plane somewhere. Made me curious. Of course "Whiskymag.com":http://www.whiskymag.com/whisky/award/ is filled with data. For instance telling you that Single Malt Scotch is really whisky from scotland that is from a single source.
There's a good "Award":http://www.whiskymag.com/whisky/award/ list up there. Some of the great names are:
* Highland Park 18 year old ($90)
* Highland Park 12 year old ($40)
* The Macallan (speyside)
