Being from Kentucky originally and a bourbon drinker, but now starting to really appreciate scotch; I'm wondering what others think.
I've tried a number of bourbons, but to me Scotch is far more interesting and complex. Not sure I can appreciate bourbon anymore (unless its a free glass of Blanton's, Woodford Reserve or Elijah Craig).
Anyone out there who has switched form one to the other and why?

They each provide something a little bit different from the other. I believe you will find that conditions that you find yourself in will also change your desire for a particular beverage.
Good answer. I have been a wine drinker and maker for years. (I make a dry red from a generally unknown French wine grape 'Baco Noir'). Sometimes I like red, sometimes I like white. With different foods, different climates, different venues, my preference changes. But my overall preference, if given a choice at any given time . .. would be red . . . because of the many different flavour profiles as opposed to white. That is what I seem to be finding in Scotch over Bourbon . Scotch just seems to have so many more variables than bourbon (IMHO). . . and beguiling ones at that. I never had that with bourbon, though I have tried some top shelf.
Guess I should have stated my question this way. . . who generally prefers one over the other and why?

I wouldn't want to be without either, though malt whisky (Scotch in particular) has admittedly represented a larger portion of my bottle-count down through the years.
Who said, "Variety is the spice of life?" I agree!
