Single malt minatures? Where to buy?

I would suggest trying 3 or 4 at a time until you can distinguish which style of malt would be your preference and then to take it from there with regards to what you would have as a go to and a special treat selection.

If you find something you like, then buy a bottle, for as much as a miniature is a good taste, a bottle can be a lot different.

You mentioned over a dozen malts there, all with different characteristics and I would bet that not all of them would be something you would go back to regularly.

Just a thought
I agree with you. I am planning on keeping tasting notes for myself as I can see what other scotch I would like to keep on hand.
I have almost always loved scotch in the past. When I first started out in 1999 I had to teach myself to like scotch.

In the past I have always had a few bottles on hand. Cragganmore 12, a vintage or 2 of Glenrothes, Talisker 10, Oban 14, and Lagavulin when I wanted a really peaty dram.

I gave away all my Glencairn glasses to a friend when I quit smoking after I met my wife so I will be getting a set soon I hope, and I want to try as many single malts as I can to get an idea of what is offered out there.

Here are 2 of my faves. Fill in the blanks and cull what you want. Other countries will ship to the US and some states will.

We cross our bridges when we come to them and burn them behind us, with nothing to show for our progress except a memory of the smell of smoke, and a presumption that once our eyes watered.

I am not worried about them shipping to the us just about shipping to Texas. There is only one store that will ship to Texas that I have found and currently they are trying to see what miniatures they can get as they dont carry them.

Here is what I could get locally and ebay.

the only reason I knew about this is because one of the guys in my boxing class works for one of the companies involved. As he is a dispatcher or something they used him to round up the guys. They had him call of of the perps and tell them they were getting an award or something, they all came to work in their best suits... only to be arrested
