SM Scotch: 75%
Give or take. I'm sure it'll change due to weather, sales, specials, availability, palate, company, etc.
I also happen to like vatted pure malt Scotches a great deal.
That said, I still have a soft spot in my heart from good ole' bourbon (or anything that is similar ... like a good Coffey Grain Whisky).

Not a bad way to start. If you wanna try an Irish try Jameson, I had that a couple weeks ago for the first time. It was good. What Whiskies have you tried? You can tell me all kinds and what you liked.
The only blends I have had are Walker Red and Black. I really don't like Red, and Black is nice.
SMSW - Bowmore Dawn, Darkest, and 12 (Darkest my fav Bowmore); Caol Ila 12 (my fav so far to date); Glenlivet 12 and 15 French Oak (12 is like mother's milk; but I did enjoy the 15), Macallan 12 (my first purchase ever; could do it again), Laphroig 15 (damn close to being my fav).
There might be some others. I know I have had a Japanese one that was good. The short version is I love peat smoke, period. I think I would bath in it if I could.
I have not had that many bourbon's but I do like maker's mark.
What I would recommend if you are willing to venture a little is try a Johnnie Walker Green, it is pure malt. It is prob the best on the market and it is pretty reasonably priced.
I agree with you the Macallan 12 is great, it is a staple in my cabinet. I don't like huge amounts of smoke and the peat but if it is minimal I like it. I am not sure what SMS I would recommend to you, maybe Glenfiddich 18.
