First off you sip good Scotch, you don't drink it.
I don't know if it's a good idea to tell a Scotsman how to drink whisky. And if you go to Scotland you will find that most people do drink
whisky. Why sip it when there's plenty more to drink?!?
Glenfiddich is VERY GOOD !
Wouldn't wash my feet with the stuff. We had it as malt of the month in my pub because our buyer was swooned by discounts and free stuff, had to extend to 3 months because it's terrible.
If anyone is looking for a good single malt to take abroad, Scapa is a personal favourite and it's hard to get outside of Scotland (in fact, it was impossible to get here for a good few years!). For something in a decent budget and good for palates that are not used to single malts I would say Auchentoshan American Oak is a great starter malt (at the distillery they call it a good breakfast whisky...)
