BIG sherry comes in Glendronach - great dessert sipper - the 12 is good value and has sherry without extra spend similar to the Bal

Yeah I like everything Glendronach- I have the 15, 21, and a 19 cask strength.

Macallan and Glenfarclas in my opinion are the best. But, my go-to for price and value is the Balvenie 12 Double Wood. Just poured myself a dram, cheers!

Balvenie 12 Doublewood is hands down the smoothest Scotch I’ve had.

In addition to the above, here’s my slightly unusual recommendation- Kavalan Solist Sherry Cask! A sherry bomb like no other.

Sherry cask shouldn’t necessarily be more expensive. What it will do is add a sweetness to the whiskey (port cask will as well). Personally I’m not a fan on the heavier whiskeys (like the smokey ones from Islay) but it can add a nice soft finish to the lighter ones like Irish or highland scotches.

I recently started at a larger software company as an AE. As I’m getting more into the process, I’m finding things odd. Like, cold calls and emails are metrics I’m judged on more than closed won business. I know that’s part of the job but it seems strange I’m judged on it so heavily. And, I seem to be the first real outside AE hire as everyone else seems to have been promoted up from SDR roles, including all of my direct management. I’m questioning if I made the right move. Stick it out or look?

In real estate private equity, 5 years experience as asset mgr. Should I stay at a firm with zero brand name recognition (new boutique started in 2018 outside of a major financial center with 750m AUM) where I am the main asset mgr as well as right hand man of the CFO but with 30% less than average comp. Or should I move to a bigger name with less responsibility/title prestige but with competitive comp and that brand name recognition? I plan to start my own firm in 5-10 years.

Full-time MBA or EMBA? My company (EY) would pay for EMBA, but require me to stay with the firm for 3y post graduation; MBA would be on me and I have no more than 50k in my savings. The reason I am considering full time MBA is that I am not sure I want to stay in consulting, especially not in EY. Also, I am 30yo with 7y of experience and was recently promoted to a Manager. Any advice?

What’s the best approach in leaving your current firm to avoid hella backlash? Currently staffed on a large project where SM and client is dependent on me for many things for the implementation. Ramp up time to hire someone new and train would be roughly 4 months. Strong chance they’ll counteroffer but I’m set on leaving. Am I overthinking it?
