I recently took a bottle of bitters to a bar I enjoy frequenting just to get a manhattan! And usually they don't know how to make a "Perfect" manhattan - it is one of lifes' discouragements, anyway the jar of bitters now resides at the end of the bar and usually only used by myself:)
In some order my favorite single malts
Cold weather: Hands down it's Lagavulin, then Laphroig
other than that, Glenmorangie 10 yr., Glenmorangie Lasanta, Talisker, Bladnoch's John McDougall Single Cask.
On a budget? McLellan's Highland is a very pleasant single malt - and not too pricey.

Interesting - I too lived on Ray road years ago - I remember not being able to leave for work because the herders were taking sheep right down the middle of the road (just west of chandler). Last time I was there I was totally lost!
Dalmore Cigar Malt
Ah at last yesterday aquired the coveted bottle of cigar malt - could not get the recommended cigar but paired it with a fuente 8 5 8 outstanding flavor - it will now be added to the Lavagulin and Cao Isla!
the only problem I had was wanting more :)
I remember Sinatra saying "I feel sorry for people that don't drink because when you get up in the morning that's as good as you're going to feel all day"
