    Definitely agree with [MENTION=13442870]pootana[/MENTION] that whisky/ey is subjective. I personally find the Aberlour 10 drinkable but very bitter (people always seem to buy it for me as well!). My taste leans towards almost anything Glenmorangie (didn't like the Lasanta or Nectar D'Or too much) and the Aberlour Abunad'h and Tamdhu Batch Strength take some beating; you can always add water to these if the mood so takes you. I find the 'Cigar Malts' a bit gimmicky on the whole. Must admit that I'm enjoying rum more than whisky these days (which is a surprise to me!)

    Aberlour 10 would be my suggestion.

    Another whisky I think that will go nicely with a cigar is bain cape mountain....I've not paired it yet...but can see a cigar will complement the whisky....it's a very smooth whisky, notes of vanilla and cinnamon

    Will have to try it once the cool weather pass.

    Whiskey drinking is subjective go to a good pub that has a large selection and sample you will find what you like .

    As for non peaty favouring cigars ... bull ..

    Ok, so a question that's probably been asked dozens of time before, but, please, either indulge me or point me to an existing thread. In short - what whisky/whiskey would you recommend for a (largely) whisk(e)y beginner to match with his cigars? I'd like to find a good 'all-rounder' and/or (if another one is needed), something that will work with the stronger cigars I enjoy - Bolivar, Ramone Allones etc.
    My (limited) experience tells me that (until I progress, perhaps) I don't go with the 'burners' (hence I like some of the softer Irish whiskeys). Also, I've read that cigars go best with the 'non-smokey' drams; is that right and, if so, what do these include? I do enjoy Springbank; would that work? Another I've seen mentioned (on the JJ Fox site) is Redbreast 12 - worth a look? Thoughts much appreciated. Thanks.

    Last contract we had a beer fridge, foosball, NERF wars. But not whisky... I do miss having a kettle available though. Now I'm in the bloody death Star...

    No booze. No kettle.

But to the point - as a novice, I'm thinking that the design of the Norlan glass is a bit counter-intuitive in that it seems to insulate the liquid from the warmth of the hand (unlike the normal glass), or am I wrong and is whisk(e)y not like brandy where part of the design of the classic balloon glass is about warming the liquid?
