headfirst - 1/8/2019 9:05 AM I had no idea, sorry man, talk about THE wrong example to use to make my point.
No offense taken at all! I was just posting that my opinion is obviously not in the majority.

 The only thing that matters is what we think....if we like something then that's what we go with...if we don't like it then we try something else.

I used to HATE all of the sherry Macallans. My friends thought I was nuts. But they all have one common flavor that I found offensive. Before the Mac reached my lips, I could smell that awfulness coming. Then I somehow learned to taste it past that one thing, and love the other things it brings. That was thanks to a friend sharing a bottle that had been open for many months. It turns out that the offensive part of Mac burns off with air exposure. See, Mac is one of the distillers that uses a closed tun for mixing, and that keeps air away from it. Anyway, now Mac is one of my acquired tastes. Currently working on a bottle of Classic Cut 2017; a rare Mac at cask strength (58%).

I have a similar problem with peaty, smokey scotches. Can't even get past the aroma.

Welcome to the dark side! Or as ly friends at the lounge call it. Dirt drinker... But hey so be it. There have been some great suggestions in this thread. I would also suggest Singleton, GlenDronach 12 and bowmore. There are so many great scotchs! Get drinking.

Well it was an acquired taste than you'll definitely get used to over time.

Took my first sip of Glenmorangie Nectar D’Or (excellent!) and thought I’d post up what my thoughts are a year later here.

Favorite tried so far is Laphroaig, it hits my taste buds in super distinct sequential phases, pretty mind blowing something homogeneous can do that. Nothing else I’ve tried does that to the same extreme. Nectar D’Or is kind of similar that way but stays on the sweet side, not much peat, but the buttery finish on that one is nice. Glenlivet is probably the smoothest and probably my favorite of the original sweet ones I bought because of that, very drinkable. Glenfiddich 18 was good but overall it is my least favorite so far since I really wasn’t into their 12 year.

Any recommendations given I’ve enjoyed Laphroaig the most so far?
