scotch tumbler

Scotch and whiskey I’ve tried and want to try. I liked, were just ok, I didn’t like. Also see wine, beer, chocolate, and other lists.

This isn’t comprehensive – I’ve tried others that aren’t listed here – and it’s biased. If I mark something here, I may still think it’s good overall, but just doesn’t match my own personal taste, and vice versa.
