First malt a Macallan, which I'm still fond of and I also supped Glenfiddich. Back in the day, drinking malt was viewed by some as being pretetnious as feck. Real men drank a Johnny Walker Red or Grouse, preferably a hauf and hauf.Ok guys which was the first malt whisky you tried. My first foray into Malts was in 1967 when an old guy in the pub I was drinking in said why don't you try this and it was Talisker there was only two malts in the pub the other was Glen Fiddich
Moved onto Islay's and Campbelltown about 1990, purely down to my local, also Clynelish and anCnoc. Which I stayed with more or less.
