I'm a bourbon drinker, but I have started dabbling in scotch. I prefer smoky so far, but looking for some good scotches to start putting on the bar shelf at the house.

Favorites so far: Ardbeg, Smokey Joe, The Macallen 12.

Hasn't really been one I didn't like yet.

Most like Bourbon more, I dont know why. Does Bourbon a 'healthier' booze?

Define addicted. I've probably got 22 bottles around the house, but I don't drink every day. Or in excess when I do.

i definitely don't drink whiskey or whisky every day.

but usually to some degree of excess when I do.... not very disciplined I guess

Highland Park 12 is a must have in the cabinet.
Balvenie 12 DW is a win.

Jura 10yr is my smooth go to. It's an Islay.
It's my only consistent one that is less than 12yr.

In short, yes.

I live in Florida, hot as hell most of the year. So, I enjoy ice in my drinks, which is not conducive to high end single malt. So, I have a tendency to either drink blends with soda and ice or single malts with one large cube.

Blends (I go value, since I mix. More than usual due to the heat and mixing)
Johnny Walker Black is still one of the best for the money.
Famous Grouse cheap but works surprisingly well with soda
Monkey Shoulder (wife likes with Diet Ginger Ale)
Aberfeldy

Single Malt
Ardberg Winter and looking for Peat
Talisker Summer looking for some briny peat to sip all meal
Bunnahaben
Arberlour

Since I mix, I have really started to like the Japanese Suntory Toki. Nice easy, inexpensive

this is good list... not familiar with Aberfeldy and don't dig Talisker generally, but I'm down with all these items.

I would recommend Aberfeldy if you like Speyside or sweeter Highlands. It is made by Dewars and has a honey vanilla taste. Used to be $32, probably $39 now. It is a good mixer as well, with club or ginger ale (wife likes it in winter).
