    That was that Flaviar sampler where you get 3 shots of similar liquors, thankfully they’re all gone now.
    I also got a micro distillery bourbon I’ll crack open soon.

    That drink looks tasty.

    Entering the world of scotch whisky by the peaty end is not exactly the way to go, IMO, and as evidenced by your experience. You should, if I may, start with the mellow ones, like GlenMorangie, generally Speyside or Irish. Over time, your taste will refine and perhaps require something with more bite. Or a bit of peat smoke...

    Similar to a negroni but slightly less bitter and slightly more floral. Both great drinks.

    I’ve done Dewars, The Glenfiddich and some other mainstream ones I liked but they seemed a little to “easy” so I’m trying something different.
    I’ve been drinking Balvenie and Spey River both of which I really like.

    I’d probably like that since I like my martinis wet rather than dry. Also a fan of Manhattans.

    You could be pleased by the Irish whiskeys which are notoriously mellow. It doesn't need to be expensive : Jameson, Paddy, Tullamore Dew are quite drinkable. In The Scotch department I have found the basic Ballantine's to be really drinkable. They have an oak cask version which is a bit more tastier. Enjoy !

    Scotch is one thing I was just never able to get into.

    Agreed. I've tried to like it - didn't work.

    The tea speaks for itself. The knife is a GEC Weasel.
    (That front bolster has plenty of scuffs and scratches; but it is not oxidized and dull, as the image seems to show)
