In that case, be wary of an Albertan named Bennett....

Hi: bsmoke... You'd be more protective if you tried Makers 46 http://www.makersmark.com/makers-46 It's even better than Makers Mark Alf

I really shouldnt be going smoother with the 46 that would be trouble. In fact after I spend all this money for the Escape I need to down grade my whiskey further.

Given the prices we pay for whiskey around here, that Maker's 46 does not sound too bad at all. I pay about that and more for most of the whiskies in my cabinet.

Since this has devolved into a whiskey discussion Jim, what's your preference for a decent single malt? By decent I mean something under $75 here, like a Balvenie Single Barrel, or a Laphroaig....

Both of those are good distilleries. I have a bottle of the Balvenie Doublewood 12 in the cabinet right now, and have tried many of the Laphroig's which are one of my favourite whiskies. Only a couple weeks ago I finished of a bottle of Quarter Cask.

I bought a bottle of Laphroaig PX cask coming back from Mexico a couple years ago, that I would absolutely love to get my hands on again. It is only sold in duty free shops unfortunately. It has and incredibly enormous taste that lingers for a long time on the palate. The last couple times going through duty free, the once had the QA cask which I bought, but it never measured up, and the other times no Laphroig at all.
