Scotch is one of those "theres 2 kinds of people" questions. It's all about the amount of smokey taste you can tolerate in your beverage. I have a couple of bottles that I practically have to fan the air when I haul them out for my scotch drinking guests. Stay away from Talisker unless you like the taste of a brushfire. My brother in law drinks a blended scotch I find pretty accessible for a guy who's basically not a scotch drinker. It's J&B Rare. Very smooth! However, my real opinion is, to heck with that Scotch stuff, try Bullet Rye if you're looking to branch out.
